Network encoder, weird stutter issue


I'm still suffering network encoder problems and my trial is coming to an end in a few days and I need to decide if I'm buying 2 sagetv licenses or one sagetv license and one client lisense.

My setup (for now) is as follows:

I have a sagetv server with a pvr350 (or maybe its a pvr500 I forget) in a spare bedroom.

I have a media pc in the living room with sagetv also installed and a pvr150. I run sagetv in service mode and use the pvr150 to receive the image from a freeview box (it will provide an image from my cable box once I proove it can work). I then run sagetv with the -client parameter on the media centre.

The situation is playback from the pvr350 on the media cenre pc is FINE. Playback from the PVR150 on the media centre is fine (when I run sagetv on the media centre).... however, when I have the media centre pc running sage tv in client mode and accessing the pvr150 through the sagetv server in the spare bedroom, the picture stutters anyware between 1 - 10 mins since I started watching the tv. Pausing for a few seconds does not fix the issue, also when its stuttering fast forwarding and rewinding seem not to work.

I've checked both the media centre and the sagetv server in the spare bedroom and both seem fine, plenty of spare ram, no spikes in cpu usage, no spikes or pauses in the network stream.... nothing else running.

Both machines are running sagetv 6.3.5, previously running 6.2 but that had many more issues so re-setup both machines from scratch and used 6.3.5.

Anyone seen this? any ideas?
