It may be due to the number of buffers used and its size in the myth upnp
code. It may be optimized for SD now but may not be optimal for HD. I know
that you can tweak those numbers in wizd to get a smooth playback. I stream
HD from my mythbox using wizd to LP2 and never had any problem. For LP2, the
best firmware to stick is with Oct 2005 (checkout avsforum for more info or
PM me) to avoid skipping issues etc (eg it ffwd when rewinding).
