Reinstalled Raspbmc on my pi last night and left it for a few hours and is running smooth as silk now except on 1080p mkvs (haven't tried other formats) which still stutter.

I'm connecting via home plugs and have a 100mbps connection across the network but can't be sure it's down to network or pi not handling it.

Am using the old sky router so could be that. But am happy I can watch 24 in bed now without moving the PS3 :)

You're in the beta program too are you? I can't try IE yet as I'm only a silver at the moment :laugh::rolleyes:

These ones

Yeh in the beta IE actually works really well. Nice keyboard (not the crap bing one) and the cursor changes colour when your on a link so you know you're in the right place.

Morning chaps.:hiya:

When you're in the beta xbox live program does it stop you from chatting if the other user is still on the official release?

Knitting in 3 hours.:D

Nope you can still chat with others - not being on the xbox makes it more difficult.

If we are all on tonight I can get my girlfriend sufficiently drunk to play with you guys if you want :smashin:

If any of you chaps like a punt on the nags then I've had a text from a pal who says Super Cookie has a shout in the 6:10 at newmarket. Don't go mad though. He does give some good ones but they don't all win. I'm having an ew bet as its around 12/1.

I hope you all backed it and made a few quid. It romped home and I was on at 12s. Happy days. :)

There's your problem. They only have a 10/100Mb ethernet port.

So why do they say upto 500mbps :S

Also what should I get instead?
The adapters can communicate at up to 500Mbps (e.g. between each other) which is why they're advertised as such - it's fairly misleading.

Do you need GbE?

The pair of adapters can talk to each other at 500Mbps but the outside world via the ethernet port at 100Mbps. As the ports are only 10/100 that's why it's showing as being connected at 100Mbps.

Correct me if I'm wrong here but I expect the router only has 100Mb/s ports in it too? You won't have any problems with a 100Mb connection for streaming 1080p content, multiple streams will stack up and require more after a point though.
