That would be great, any idea why video stuttered over NFS?
I'm a total noob when it comes to NFS so I used a combination of guides and NFS Manager to enable it on my mac, but I could easily have done something wrong there. I edited the plist file and added shares with NFS Manager, then I created new network locations in XBMC for both shared volumes. This enabled me to add a source over NFS (I tested it by adding just one small folder) but when I tested a video last night, it stuttered several times.
Is there a way to keep my NFS sources from going offline when my mac sleeps? I never had that problem with SMB, but now it seems to be unavoidable either way.
Today I created advancedsettings.xml and set cachemembuffer to 0 as I thought the stuttering may have had something to do with that (even though I never had that problem before). I'm currently testing SMB sources again and while video played smooth for about an hour, just now the screen went black and I got directed back to the library again. this suuuucks.
