Remote transcoding - no change in picture quality

Samsung UE65HU7505, Plex 2.009.
I need to lower the settings for remote transcoding (or else it buffers constantly). After updating to 2.009 the picture quality remains the same no matter if I choose 1 or 12 in remote transcoding setting, and it buffers just as much on 1 as on 12. Any idea what is causing this?

    I suspect your server can't keep up, or the connection is not fast enough.
    Check the logfile as mentioned here. it should tell you the speed of the transcode.
    Anything below a speed of 1.0 will start stuttering, and shows that the server cannot keep up.

    Have you checked if your answer might be in the User Manual?
