Buffering issues on Infuse v4/5

Hi all,

New to the forum so apologies if this has been asked before.

Here is my current set up:
HP Core I7 laptop
HP MediaSmart EX495 server
Apple TV 4
Ethernet connection from router to Apple TV

Problem:
Whenever I stream a M2TS file from either the MediaSmart server or HP laptop, the video will occasionally buffer. I know it’s not the network as it’s an ethernet connection. So my question is, what is the cause of the buffering? Is the Apple TV unable to handle a raw BR rip with a hi bitrate? Where is the transcoding done?

I want to use raw BR rips so I get the best quality but the constant buffering is making it a deal breaker.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers.

Believe it or not, but the Apple TV is capable of much better performance when using Wi-Fi.

The max speed you’ll see out of Ethernet is ~100Mbs, but Wi-Fi can go up to 1Gbs when using 802.11ac.
