I'll start off by saying I am no expert and any help is appreciated. Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to get the log files, so I will get them up tonight after work.
My home setup was the following:
- Home Server running WHS2011
- 4 Media Center PC's and 1 gaming system all with Win7
- All behind a 1Gb switch
- All Media centers ran MB2 with core AVC and ffdshow
One of the media centers was giving me issues so I wanted to do a clean install and I decided to load win8.1 and Media Browser 3 classic. I decided to try LAV for the codecs. On the Server I loaded Media Browser 3 Server.
Everything works but performance is slow. What i mean by this, is when I am running a movie and I forward a couple times, it takes a few minutes for the movie to start playing again. I tried different movies and get the same results. I never had or currently have this issue with my other MB2 client systems that connect to the WHS directly without MB3 server. Is this expected?
From a networking perspective, with MB3 server on WHS, does the MB3 client have to go through the gateway and before with MB2 it didn't? I am guessing here.
