Windows 7 Wts Streaming

2 posts in this topic

I apologize if I posted this int he wrong spot, this is my first time posting and wasn't 100% sure which forum to post it in. I did a search but didn't seem to find the right answer for what I want to do.

I have a Windows 7 HTPC that I use to record HD channels and I have a Sony Blue-ray BDP-S480 and a Sony media-box SMP-N100. The Sony's all seem to work fine and have great picture quality with Netflix and Vudu. Unfortunately when I connect them to PC and try to watch a recorded Media Center WTS file everything looks like pixel crap! Is there anyway to improve the quality of the picture being sent to the Sony players? Would streaming from Windows Home Server or another encoder improve performance?

It really depends on how you have things set up. How are you streaming the WTF files? Do you have them on the server at all? And do you have WHSv1 or WHS2011?

    • So I currently have Windows Server 2012 Essentials (running in a Hyper-V VM) and am thinking about migrating to a Windows 10 server. I have 12 disks or so on the server all configured via Storage spaces. Can I simply connect these disks up to a Windows 10 install and have all the files appear? From what I have read the storage space info is all on the disks and it should work, but has anyone here actually tried it and succeeded. I have 10+ TB of data and the easiest way to get it to the new server would be to just connect the disks up.   Thanks, -Bill
    • Did you try CC cleaner or a disk clean up program? It seems to me that old files merged or not are still existing, do you have external storage that you could export the known good files to while you reformat and clean the 6TB?
    • Hello Is it possible to clone an external HDD containing the server backup to another external HDD? The external HDD doesn't have a drive letter, so how can I clone the drive?  I have two external drives in a Dual Dockingstation (2 drives), which has a button to clone from A to B, but I don't trust that solution too much..
    • I have a whs 2011 server, which has been running fine for years, however since I have updated the client pc's to windows 10 anniversary edition I am constantly getting a services not running error on clients, having checked the services, all are in the correct state, I have tried restarting some of the obvious ones, but with no success. if I select the fix option in the alert list for the error, it clears, but then returns after 20 mins or so. Not sure what to do next to solve this.
    • well it took a great deal of time but the repair made it possible for the cleanup to go pass the 14% strange however is that even though I told it to delete all the bad backups and merge the good ones it did not clear up any of the disk space. And adding all the good merge backup sizes together shows there should be the normal 6Tb free available. So the failed backups are gone the good backups are all merged but the disk space remains at 212 Mb. not sure how to tackle this I am going to look at it again this next weekend to see if I missed something.
