    Hello,

    I have been experiencing a lot of loading on my tv every time I am streaming a HD/1080P movie. But if i stream something other than HD/1080P i have no problems. I believe its my usb wiresless this is what i have Realtek rtl8187 as far as router its a linksys wrt54g.

    thanks

    If it helps, wireless N has issues loading BR or true HD rips to my other media boxes too.

    and are slower than wireless N, so it makes sense to me that you have issues when I do over N.

    I have to agree with this. The only 1080P stuff I can stream well over wireless N is lossy codecs.
