Wireless vs wired

I've been using my aTV wireless since I got it. There is a slight delay between pushing the remote button and the action taking place. I have all my data on my iMac and I went from a firewire drive to USB drives. When I did that the delay has increased quite a bit. I've already invested in the USB drives and am kind of stuck with them. Do you think that if I wired the aTV that I would eliminate the initial pauses? What has been your experience wired vs wireless. I never get jerky movie scenes.

I have my Apple TV wired, and I use a 1TB firewire drive connected to my iMac to store my media. The iMac connects wirelessly to my network.

With streaming content, there is a slight delay before the movie will play, but I've never really noticed a consistent delay from the remote. The only time I notice any real delay is when I first go into My Movies and the Apple TV begins to populate all the cover art.
