I installed DU Meter yesterday just out of curiosity to see speeds yes, but mainly to see how much I am downloading/uploading.

My kids were watching a film on the 360 streamed from my PC. According to the Task Manager it is using 25% of my 100Mbps LAN speeds. So far so what.

DU Meter concurs 25Mbps. But according to the stats it has uploaded 10Gigs in the hour. But the film they are watching is only a 947MB avi.

How come a 947MB file generates over 10Gigs of stream data?

Overhead? lol. not really sure. If you're that curious you could get a packet sniffer and see what the overhead is for streaming video.

I agree tho, that does seem to be alot.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif
