Slow Playback via non-SageTV software

I have a PC with 2 250s and SageTV installed. Everything records fine. However, when I try to playback from other machines on the network, it seems like it's playing in slow motion.

It is not choppy or dropping frames - it looks like a 45 record played at 33 speed.

It plays fine through the SageTV software and through SageTV Client. It also plays fine on the MediaMVP.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

How is your network setup? Wireless 802.11b?

What OS's are you using?

What software are are using on the client side?

I had a similar problem with PowerDVD 4.0 on my HTPC. There was an update on their website which solved my problem.

I have PowerDVD Pro EX and the MPEG-2 codec on both machines. The recording machine is XP Pro, and the networked machine is XP Home. I have the same problem on my XP Pro laptop. It's not a speed issue, because other video clips (and DVDs) play fine.

Everything is on a 100Mb network.

Thanks!

How is the CPU load on the machine playing the video when the performance is poor?

Odd - I posted a reply last week but it didn't show up. Anyhow, the CPU load is nominal, b/c the playback isn't "poor" per se. It is simply at the wrong speed. There are zero dropped frames (that I can tell) and no stuttering. I will try the PowerDVD updates and report back.

Thanks!

Nope, no dice. It is still playing too slow. I am going to try the Elecard decoder next and see if that does it.

Well, the Elecard decoder fixes the sound problem, but doesn't do as good of a job with the video. On to the next problem!
