Windows 7 Wts Streaming

2 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

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?

      I was able to resolve the issue by uninstalling the application, removing the app from IIS then reinstalling.
    • WHS replacement device
      By fasttimes · Posted
      Longtime WHS user, in fact still on V1. Now that Windows 10 won't support a connector, are there any NAS devices that will give me the same simplicity that WHS provides for backup like the connector and over network restore? Will a device that runs Windows Storage Server give me the same functionality?  I'd love some recommendations to backup the OS of 4-5 machines at a sub 1k price  
    • Remove OneDrive from Win10
      By WantStuff · Posted
      Hi guys, I have recently put Win 10 Pro on two laptops and connected to a WS2012E R2 domain. I've pretty much got everything working as wanted and am now applying the 'polish'. One of the thing I'd now like to do is disable/remove OneDrive from the clients. I have seen that it can be done using a Local Group Policy, and want to do the same/similar but using a DC policy instead. Can some one point me in the right direction fo this? Local Group Policy instructions: https://techjourney.net/disable-or-uninstall-onedrive-completely-in-windows-10/ Thanks

      To follow up on the above, today I noticed an alert for the server (see attached). Now the second one got me thinking, so I went into the Dashboard, and sure enough there was no users, so then I started the service and my users appeared. Now all I need to work out is why the services are not starting when the server reboots.

      Today I was faced with this problem, WHS2011 had been running find for around 4.5 years. I thought I'd try re-installing the connector software, but got an error after entering the server password.   Now at some point before reinstalling the connector software I restarted the server and also made sure the above was running, and restarted the service anyway. Before continuing with the connector installation I checked the Dashboard from within the server and all my users had come back. Perhaps the Certificate Web Service had stopped prior to the reboot, perhaps it was just the reboot that fixed, I don't know but this may be helpful to someone else.
