My NAS is used only for storage of files, most of them being media files in various formats (DVD, avi, MPEG etc). We basically have this instead of a massive DVD shelving unit! The media is streamed downstairs via wired connection to a media player on the downstairs computer (the NAS is connected to the main PC upstairs). It's decided it doesn't want to stream anymore. It plays the files, but it is in 'jerkyvision'.
I have no idea why it's started doing this, just woke up one day and it didn't like them anymore.
I wondered if my router was playing up, and it was about 5 years old so I've just replaced it. That hasn't fixed it. I've rebooted and upgraded the NAS software. No improvement. I tested the broadband speed and it's nealy 5meg, which is more than enough to stream media downstairs. The thing that bugs me is that I have no idea what's causing the issue, and why it's suddenly decided to stop playing them properly.
Now for the equipment:
Operating System - Windows 7 34-bit
Router - Netgear DGN-3500 Gigabit
Connection - Wired through "homeplugs" that use the house wiring to transmit the signal
Media player - J River Media Centre 15
NAS - Synology Diskstation 1511+
I really hope someone can shed some light on this!
