What protocol did you use for the Infuse 5? I’d stick with it since it seems to work well on your hardware. While some may get faster speeds on NFS others get better results with FTP while still others find SMB to be the best for their set up.
I’m guessing that you were probably connected via SMB so I’d suggest you try that and see if your video plays smoothly.
Edit to add I noticed where you said that when you tried to go back to Infuse 5 it wouldn’t run. That sounds like your NAS may have been giving some priority to the original connection and may have to have some options set to do the same on the reconnected version.
UPnP has a few restrictions that keeps the Library in Infuse from functioning fully but if you’re only using it for home made movies it should be fine. As I said earlier though if you’re wanting all the slick metadata and graphics with commercial movies and TV shows you may want to work with the SMB options I suggested above.
Good luck and enjoy! Down the road when you get ready to dive into the full experience you’ll want to revisit the non DLnA options to get the most bang for your buck but for now enjoy and let us know if you have any other issues.
I have a 1Gig network. On the infuse speed test SMB and NFS give me around 160Mbps while if I switch to FTP I get 950Mbps. Guess who’s using FTP now. I know those other protocols have some overhead but no idea why it’s so bad in this instance. Regular file copies are much closer to the 800-900Mbps mark over NFS for example.
Only noticed this because I did some trouble shooting and found a faulty cable which was making it even worse…
