Firestick 4K - Speed of remote connection

I'm using a Firestick 4K with the Andriod miniclient to watch Sage recordings remotely and am seeing halts in playback using the Fixed Transcoding beta client.
I can also usethe HD-300 in Placeshifter mode, and while it's responsive the picture quality is just not there. I can use Emby as well, and it has good picture quality. I'm hoping to use the Firestick and use the SageTV software.

Here are some speeds for various links in the playback chain.

Server upload speed is reported as 10Mbps
Remote download speed is reported as 6Mbps
Server processor is i5-2400 CPU @ 3.1GHz, 4 cores
SageTVTranscoder.exe is using 20% of CPU out of about 50% usage.
Remote WiFi to FireStick is on 5G band.

Any idea where the bottleneck is in this setup?

Edit: I just set these properties and it seems like it's working without halts. Maybe it's just a good part of the day and it's certainly a blind pig move, but it is working without transcoding on the server.

miniplayer/min_bandwidth_for_no_transcode=1500000 (reset from 2000000)
miniplayer/wan_prevent_push=false (reset from 'true')

I'm using the beta client with the revised Jar.
Server: Intel i5-2400 @3.1GHz 4 cores Windows 8.1 Pro, Sage 9.2.1 with Comskip
Capture: OTA; Comcast to HD-PVR, HDHR, HDHR Prime with Firmware version 20150826 and OpenDCT version 0.5.13 beta
Storage: 1Tb HD on Server, 2Tb Buffalo NAS
Network: Gb Buffalo Router, Gb 8-port Netgear Switch connected to Server, HD-200, NAS, HDHR, Prime, LAN
Playback: HD-200, Server to HDTV; HD-300 and Emby for off-site playback
Tech Level: Hobbyist
