How much bandwidth speed does one really need to watch HD w/o buffering?
Thanks, I knew I had read it but couldn't find it again searching. My brother is wanting to do it and he asked. So was trying to find the answer.About 3.4Mbps for the best quality. You can get away with 2.5Mbps but the PQ begins to suffer. 1.5Mbps will give you reasonable SD quality.
Unfortunately, the very best I can do is about 600Kbps (and there are no other alternatives, before someone asks). Can someone answer this question:
Can I stream to the 722K the entire desired program at, say, 3AM and then watch it later? Or can I only stream and buffer myself to death, a-la ROKU?
