    My boss has just modded his xbox and got XBMC on it. But he's having problems getting video to play properly.

    He has access to both SAMBA and XNSP(?) shares and can ftp to the box getting a minimum of 12Mb/s (wireless) but usually more.

    But when viewing divxs, there is sometimes stuttering. Sometimes at the beginning, sometimes not for 20 minutes. These are low bitrate (eg 450MB for an hour).

    So transfer speed doesn't seem to be the issue, but any ideas what might be?

    He's wired the xbox into his wireless router/modem, and his PC has a wireless usb stick in it. Using windows firewall and CCX gui lite (enabled through the firewall). The stuttering happens whether using ccxgui or samba shares.

    I find it better to have a shared folder on PC then use the workgroup method also he should get the latest version of XBMC I know older versions do tend to be very buggy.

    Last thing clear the cache z x y

    Does that mean delete everything in those directories?

    Also, I believe the old build (e:\apps\xbmc folder) and the TDATA and UDATA "0face008" files should be deleted everytime a new build is installed. This reduces compatibility issues between builds.

    Yeah there just the cache so there like temp files as such.

    Your right you should also delete the other files you listed when you install a new version

    Agreed 100% (except when your network goes t*ts up).
