Hello, need some advice. :P

I want to stream 8-10 gig, average 2 hours long movies to the WD TV Live over power lines from a powerful PC. But will the HD TV Live be able to handle the media without stuttering and freezing like the XBOX 360?

If you have any examples please let me know; Just want to make sure it's up to the job before I spend some cash!
Thanks

Simon

Of course it will, it can play 1080p content up to ~50 MB/s. The question is if your power line can handle high bitrates continuously.

Thanks, I get 40mb over power lines and can stream a 20gig (3 hour movie) with no propblem to the WD TV Live 'problem solved'. That's the end of the 360 streaming issue. Well, the 360 has been around since 2005!
