Inconsistent network speed RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am seeing inconsistent network speeds when ripping DVDs to WHS.  Any thoughts on why this might be?

    If I rip from a PC to WHS (my preference) I am seeing SLOW transfer to the WHS at about 1 Mbps.  The rip takes FOREVER ... HOURS!

    But if I rip first to the PC (takes just a few minutes) and then move the ripped folder to WHS the transfer rate is 50 Mbps or higher.

    The PC and WHS are on the same gigabit switch.  The WHS has five HDDs on 5 SATA ports on the mainboard, and four more HDDs on two PCI SATA controller cards.
