PS3 Video and Network Performance

Trying to play an avi from a USB stick on my PS3, it refused to find the file when clicking the USB device in the video memory, answer, click the triangle key and select display all, and the file appears. Still can’t see the avi on my Home Server though.

Also looks like wmv playback is much faster than avi or mp4 from my home server; I’m not sure if WHS is decoding on the fly for avi playback as the PS3 doesn’t have the codec.

Finally, I’ve been having network nightmares, I thought were due to the primary wired connection from my router to the rest of the network being via a HomePlug AV (power over ethernet) connection. However, it looks like my router’s DNS is very poor, and the issue may be that it’s serving DNS itself rather than providing DNS server addresses to my devices.

For reference, BT’s Business DNS servers are 194.72.0.95 and 194.74.65.68
