I know the logical answer is there is none (under the guise that not many people could have that much media) but we have been having problems streaming to both apple TVs and the macmini lately, and I often wonder if it is due to the amount of content it is trying to manage. And I dont mean individual file sizes nor physical size of the total files contained there in; I mean the amount of unique files. (or at least thats what my hypothesis has lead me to wonder about) Our one computer manages multiple librarys (10 frequent users and 2 infrequent users, so a total of 12 users media librarys reside on a single machine) so the amount of content has steadily increased to almost unmanageable proportions in a single iTunes account, and are simply streamed to each users computer. All devices and software are current as of this writing, symptoms appear roughly equally and very similarly on both wired and wireless devices. All devices only running apple sanctioned software. And have been rebooted and restored adnosium to no avail. I have centralized all media on a 2.8 octo macpro, so as to limit the media format not recognized errors. (these used to plague me as well but once all media was centralized, on one single device running iTunes, I have not seen this issue rear its nasty head even once! Yay!) The symptoms that we commonly plague us are the menus are god awful slow, and sometimes start working only to bounce back to the last selection that was made when going between series, only to stall out again, and then finally work. This commonly takes up to 5 minutes, and in rare cases much longer. Overall the interface seems to just drag its feet for just normal tasks. One of the new symptoms that has started lately on our wired TV (and is rather annoying), is that when a selection is made, the show starts without displaying any video or sound, then after almost exactly 2 minutes (there is a small window of variance, but I would say 2 minutes is a solid average), the show starts to run normally, but this causes the user to often miss the opening scenes, and or opening credits. (sometimes this is the best part of the show, and often sets the tone for the episode, ie The Office) On our wireless TV (believe me I would wire it if I could) which maintains a healthy 4/5 bars (but does bounce up to 5 occasionally) because of the distance of the device, running on a AEBS wireless N connection, was running almost identical in overall performance. But recently has taken on a whole new issue where about ten minutes into a selection just freezes up for no apparent reason even though the connection is constant, and nothing on the network has changed as well as the host computer has not been touched. This started roughly after the last AEBS update. As for the device completely crashing out and actually rebooting, I do get this once in a while but not very often, and is usually due to a bad file from my experience. Anyone else have these issues and think it could be caused predominantly because of the size of the library? I really do not remember all these problems before revision 2.x (though it has been a bumpy ride since 1.x) but things really have not been getting better with the apple TV, and I wonder if maybe its time to move on as much as I would hate to leave this little diamond in the rough. My biggest concern is I dont think I could find anything better short of a HTPC, and even front row on a mini really is cumbersome in comparison to the TV. (we use it on a 1.83 mini, but it just is not as nice as the TV menus and navigation refinements) Anyone experiencing these issues and can propose any sort of advice we have not heard here before? I really think the network we run is as optimal as it can get, particularly the wired device which I can honestly say I cant think of a better scenario for connectivity. MacPro>AEBS(gigabit)>TV where is the weak link? Anyone with inordinately large librarys (unique number of files) that can make any points, or at least sympathize?
