Having a bit of trouble with WMC, i have it linked to my laptop so i can stream all my movies to the 42 inch instead of 15.6 inch laptop screen.

The first problem is when it loads up on the xbox, there is a huge delay between when i hit the toggle and when it moves on screen, between 2-4 second delay. I hit Video Library it loads with all my movies etc on screen then it just freezes :confused:

I can hit the guide button and bring up the guide no problem but when i try to select anything it freezes again for about 15-20 seconds then says Connection lost? Even though they are both on full signal connection on my super hub.

Just wondering if there is anyway or anything i could do to make it run faster or is it like this for everyone? I have about 500gb of movies but not too sure if thats the reason for it running so shit?

I don't have the connection problems with it but it does run slow something and I do have it freeze a lot when browsing my videos or starting one. Is it streaming from windows 7? Might want to try xbox.com forums
I think I have about 200 GBs set up to stream.
