    I am away from home and wanted to stream a movie that is stored on my TC at home. At home I have a 14/1 connection, and where I currently am there is a 8/1 connection.

    I can open my TC in Finder and see all the files, but when I open one I can watch like 1 second, and it'll buffer for maybe 15 sec. Keeps going like that.

    So my question is if 1mbps in upload at home is too slow for accessing the movies on my TC remotely? Or could the lag issue be caused by something else?

    Is probly ur bandwidth Kemosabe.

    Do this when ur at home, and while ur doing it, fire up activity monitor and it will tell u what sort of bandwidth it wants for such activity.
