[mythtv-users] Bluray/m2ts high bitrate and resolution tips

I just got a bluray drive for my backend, and also have a a lot of
camcorder files in the same format. I have been trying unsuccessfully
to make the playback smoother, so wanted to see what others are doing
- other tnan transcoding :)
The required network peaks at about a constant 45 mb/s for my
camcorder files, and the bd movies I have copied off seem to max at
42, although the raw content is 36, so the IP and Myth overhead.
My main issue is seeking. To a remote frontend (revo 1600) it is
almost unplayable if I try and seek. I can literally wait about a
minute for a seek to complete. I just had a thought to build a seek
table for these, so I will try that. On the machine it is stored on,
it is quite a bit better, but it is a beefy machine, so I would expect
it to be very good. Reading about the HD Ringbuffer size makes me
think it is irrelevant in regards to this, and changing it seems to
not make a difference.
Does anyone have any tips to improve the playback experience?
