So I wasn't sure if I should post this in the DLNA section or the Roku section. It's more of a Roku question than a DLNA question. Basically I want to find out if the Roku 3 is going to be my best option for solving my current problem. I like the Roku 3 so far best out of all my options but if it solves my plex problem too then I am going to buy one no questions asked.
Anyway, I currently have a PS3, I have no plans of getting a PS4 or Xbox ONE, but currently I stream my Plex videos to my PS3 via the built in DLNA. I experience ALL KINDS of buffering issues. The video will play for 5 seconds then buffer for 10, play for 5 buffer for 10 for the entire video. I mainly play my blu-rays that I have saved in mkv format, so we are talking like a 25 GB file here. But my server is more than powerful enough and I am using a completely wired network. I don't have the issue if I use my laptop and use the web based player. So I have narrowed it down to something with the PS3 that is causing the issue. So my question is will I have this issue with the Roku? I originally thought it might be a lack of power of the PS3, but it could be just an issue with the way DLNA works. Not sure. Thoughts.
Thanks for the help!
