    Hi everyone,
    I have the WD TV alive Plus. I watch videos from my network share with an ethernet cable.

     I am having a really irritating problem where basically all of my avi files no longer play without serious stuttering basically from the outset. Audio starts but after one or two seconds it cuts out and the video stutters and freezes along. These videos worked just fine months ago.

    It seems like all of my mkv files work perfectly and most of the HDthe other files work fine when I use a usb drive with the WD TV.

    I only noticed this recently because I have been watching 720p videos and not normal avi...but literally every avi file (which worked just fine months ago) now stutters and freezes
    I have firmware 1.06.16_b

    But i have also tried soft and hard resetting and rolling back firmware with no change.

    I have always used a router which I have not changed.....but about 2 weeks ago I was messing around with some port forwarding for another program which I nevre really got to work. Unfortunately I can't do a system restore that far back.

    Would maybe reinstalling my router help? 

    Thanks for any help...this is crazy irritating!

    By a process of elimination, if nothing else has changed except for some settings you were fiddling with, then that must be the cause. See if you can somehow figure out and undo your changes, or else if nothing works, you can always move to WDLXTV and use NFS (more here) instead which will eliminate all bandwidth-related streaming issues.

    I installed and fiddled with Tversity and now everything seems to be working fine (with Tversity)

    I have written to WD for assistance, too...but they haven't been much help (everyone suggesting problems with router)

    But if Tversity works....can't be the router, can it?

    So you've switched from Network Shares to using TVersity via the Media Servers option? TVersity is transcoding the files in real-time, so that might help solve the stuttering (by possibly reducing the quality so less data is being sent to the player and thus the available bandwidth is not being saturated), but Network Shares is always preferable since it involves no transcoding and the player directly decodes and plays the files.

    Hey there,

    What if you remove the network all together by putting a couple files on a USB? If the file still stutters, it's not your network.
