Odd playback issue with the movie "Bolt" - bug in SageMC?

I recently picked up the movie Bolt for the kids. (BTW, really good movie). I put a copy on the DVD share of my WHS that is running Sage for WHS. I have a HD200 running in extender mode. At the exact same point in the movie I'm getting some minor audio stutter with video stutter but only when playing back on the HD200. I looked at the WHS and there were no CPU intensive processes going on that might cause it and this stutter occurs at the same location each and every time. My thought was corrupt disk sector at that point causing the stutter at that location so I remamed the original and ripped another copy. Same issue at same location playing that 2nd copy. I then played the orig DVD and it plays fine so it's not the orig disk causing it. I also played the ripped copies from the share via Vista Media Center and they played with no problems. Thus, it seems it's isolated to playback using Sage. This is the only movie I have seen this on so far. Any ideas or suggestions? Is this a bug in Sage for this movie, whic would seem odd but...?

I wonder if this is a SageMC issue. As noted before, this stutter issue does not occur with playback via VMC. I went to play this movie in the HD200 standalone mode but for some reason this and a bunch of other movies were not listed. I tried a media import refresh but that didn't add them. (any suggestions?) So while in standalone mode I drilled down in file folders and played the VOB for that movie. It played without the stutters I see when playing in SageMC mode. Thus, seems like it might be related to something in SageMC?

I am running the most current version of SageMC and didn't have any playback issues on my hd200 watching Bolt. I have noticed some stuttering issues before on some movies especially on bluray ones but later found out it was caused by disk defragmenter running during playback so I set it to not run during normal use time of sage.

FWIW - I had problems ripping that movie, though it was the blu-ray version. Usually I just find the largest file, but that movie uses several non-sequential files to make the movie and a seamless branching playlist.
