Windows 7: Windows 7 Media sharing - DLNA TV - "Jerky" video

Windows 7 Media sharing - DLNA TV - "Jerky" video

I wonder if someone can give me some pointers please.
I have a W7 starter netbook and have recently purchased a Panasonic DLNA enabled TV.

I've put the TV into 'media server' mode, and enabled Media Streaming in WMP12.

Using the TV remote control, I can now play music from the PCs library and look at pictures on the PC. But when I play video (esp HD video - AVCHD light 720p) the playback is very jerky with broken up sound.

The videos do play OK on the PC itself in GOM media player.
The TV plays BBC iPlayer HD programs fine.

So the questions are:
1. How do I investigate whats causing the jerky video on the TV and is there anything to 'tweak' to get smoother playback.
2. When you enable Media sharing does the PC use Media Player (WMP12) to do the service or is it W7 itself? i.e. can I use GOM to 'serve' the video to the TV?

TV - TX-L37DT30
Netbook - Atom N455, 2G ram
The TV is connected to my router via power cable ethernet adapters.
The Netbook is connecting wirelessly on an 'n' link at 65.0Mbps, 'Excellent' signal strength.

Ive asked Panasonic support a few days ago, but have not had a reply yet.

PS - I wasn't sure if this was a Media question or a Network and Sharing question. Sorry if its in the wrong area of the forum.

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64 bit

Sorry I cannot help you - but I was looking for this very question. Maybe if I add my comment we can generate some interest. I have a Sony MediaPlayer. On rare occasions it plays a video with minimal problems. At other times, I cannot get the thing to work more than 3 seconds. Mine is wifi connected. I do not believe the wifi is the problem. I can play the same videos using the AirPlayIt APP and AirPlayIt media player on my iPod and iPad. That thing can play the .wtv files from MediaCenter with almost no problem - as long as I am NOT using the PC for anything else.

My suspicion is that I do not have enough horsepower in the processor.
Is there any way around that? Can I stop things or free up things?
I have a Compaq / HP - AMD Athlon II X2 215 Processor 2.70 GHz and 3 Gig of Ram.
OS is Windows 7 64 bit. home premium - up to date with SP1.

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64 bit

I solved this with a cheap Ethernet cable from Walmart. PC has plenty of power - can even record another show while I am watching one already recorded.
