Hey there!

Love PLEX, and recently found that PLEX Media Server can stream to it. Great!!

So, that said, I find its having a hard time doing the job. I initially thought it would be the computer (Mac Mini 2010 4GB RAM), but the idle CPU is on average an easy 30%.
I've plugged the XBOX 360 directly to the router; no wireless in play.

I've played a bit with the settings, but I'm not quite sure what they mean:

- LocalQ ??
- RemoteQ ??
- OnlineMaxResolution -- 720 or 1080 ?
- DirectPlay -- false or true
- DirectStream -- false or true

With either 1080p or 720p content, there seems to be some small...image jitter/tear (smaller than a stutter); sound is fine.

I also tried the PS3 Media Server (that can also stream to XBOX), and that one does not have that issue (but the sound is a bit out of sync :( ).

Anyhow; just wanted to know if anyone had played with this a bit, and if there were some recommended DlnaClientPreferences.

Also, any logging that could help determine if the computer is the issue?
