Emby Server running causing problems with WMC content Viewing.

I hope I have this in the correct forum.

 

I have a question about computer performance while running the Emby Server.

 

Every time I have the server running, I have frequent stuttering of video while watching TV using Windows Media Center (WMC) and a HD Homerun USB Tuner.  (Not viewing TV content through Emby).  This happens while watching live or recorded TV. 

 

I do not have the Emby App installed in WMC.  

 

I also have noticeably slow performance of other programs.  This all resolves when I shut down the Emby server.   Video stuttering happens even when I am not streaming content remotely using the Emby Server.  Just having the server running seems to cause the issue.     

 

I have a Dell with an I5 650 (3.2Ghz) and 8-Gig Ram, Running Windows 7 Ultimate.

 

I checked performance using Task Manager while the problem was happening and it shows CPU 11%, Physical Memory 27%.  It does not seem to be stressing my hardware.  

 

It seems to work better if I exit the Emby Server and then restart the server.  

 

I have an Emby Log while the problem was happening and after stopping and restarting if it helps identify the problem.   I was not sure if it is safe, (Privacy Issue) to Post Logs in the Forum.  

 

Let me know if it is OK to post LOGS to the public forum?

 

Any Help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Wondering if this is a disk issue, the database read/writes tying up the disk queue causing playback issues............

I will give this a try...

 

After reading Jeremy's post about Hard Drive...  I looked at my WMC settings and noticed that the last time I set up the computer, it defaulted to save recorded TV to my Drive C.  

 

Maybe that also contributed to the problem.   I am working on moving my recorded TV to a different physical drive and will reconfigure WMC for that drive.

 

I will let you know how it goes.  

 

Thanks to both of you fro responding.
