    I am getting about 10mbs via Wired Network transfers to the WDLIVEHUB. Is this about the max transfer rate
    I can get transfering movies .mkv files over?

    I am using a Realtek RTL8168D/8111D Family PCI-e Gigabit Ethernet NIC.

    I know the Hard drive is limited on its transfer rate but 10mbs?

    and the rest of your network? is your switch or router gigabit? what about the cabling itself, cat5 or cat6? shielded or regular, are the cables run near power cords?

    to much missing info to even try to answer your question..

    (a guess) the live hub has a gigabit network adapter so it's likely either network hardware or your computer's network (card) settings
    and I have no idea how fast it should transfer, I would hope it is faster than that

    ahhh, wait a second..

    did you already swap the hard drive out for a different one? that could be it if it's formatted NTFS ...

    I'm getting transfer speeds of 7.5 megabytes per second with a gigabit router, cat 5e cables and my setup is a laptop connected to my router which is connected to the live hub. My router (WRT610n Firmware: 2.00.01.15) displays I'm connected via gigabit as the status lights turn green instead of blue.

    I have the latest firmware for the live hub and my cables are shielded and do not run near power lines. My laptop is running i5 @ 2.3Ghz and with 8GB DDR3 RAM @ 1333Mhz

    I was wondering what other people got for transfer rates via gigabit with huge files and it seems I'm not the only one with "slow" speeds. From what I can see, I'm guessing it's the hardware in the live hub which giving us the "slow" speeds.

    Don't feel alone. I am running a brand new PC with a gigabyte network card (configured correctly) across Cat 5e (shielded) through a gigabyte switch and can never get more than 9+mb transfer to my WDLIVEHUB.

    It gets really old transferring large files.

    only other thing I can think of is the interface (connection) for the hard drive, perhaps WD cheaped out on that, maybe it's a USB adapter inside the player, that would explain the crappy speeds. BUT then I would wonder why they did that after putting a GB network adapter in the damn thing...
