I’m having a somewhat strange buffering issue, that I’m hoping some of all you good people know how to fix.
I just bought a Vero 4K+, that I’m about to implement as a replacement for my trusty Raspberry Pi 2 running OSMC, as I’m upgrading to a 4K projector in a bit. Both are connected to my movie library spread across 2 Synology NAS servers via a Gigabit ethernet switch and a Gigabit router.
NAS 1 (old) is full of 1080p movies, and therefore I got NAS 2 (new) alongside it, which has quite a bit more space, also for upcoming UHD material.
The issue I’m experiencing is massive stutter and buffering issues, when playing back 1080p movies on the Vero 4K+ from my old NAS 1, be it high bitrate remuxes or not. Everything without exception plays back like crap. However, when I play back material residing on my newer NAS 2, I have no problems whatsoever, it also happily plays UHD HEVC rips with Atmos soundtrack, skips chapters without buffering issues and so on.
Now, the logical assumption would now be that its just my old NAS 1 is malfunctioning somehow, but the funny thing is, that when I tried playing back 1080p stuff from it via OSMC on my Raspberry Pi 2, there are no issues at all, and everything runs 100% smoothly, as it always did.
So it’s like the Vero 4K+ and my old RPi2 are using the same connection to both servers, but not with the same results, at least with one of them.
Both my RPi 2 and the Vero 4K+ are connected to the NAS servers via NFS.
Any guesses? I’m not into the whole log thing, so if that’s whats needed, someone will have to guide me … Anyway, I’m really at a loss here and could use help … Thanx in advance!
