      Macbook pro help, expert needed

      Hi I have the weirdest thing happening, let me try explain.

      I have had my Macbook pro for 1 week and its my first mac, but had the qnap TS-110 for a month.

      I have a Garbage HP netbook that will stream perfect, 720p and Tv shows from the NAS. But the Macbook wont, it stutters all over the place.

      I went into the Genius bar and they advised to make sure I am sharing via AFP and not Samba, so I changed the setting and I can now see AFP on the network, and no Samba, but this has not helped.

      I tried it in work, with my mates last years macbook dual core and his works fine wirelessly in work, but again mine didnt, but when I took it to the genius bar it streamed fine.... Very strange, it was the exact same file.

      I am really lost, I have tried quicktime with perian and also VLC and still no luck.

      Should I do a full system re-start on the Mac as this is my first mac and just worried I installed something wrong, but if this was the case I would have seen the stutter in the mac shop.

      My router is a SKY G Modem router, but like I said the little netbook streams fine, so it cant be this either.

      Can anyone offer any help, I am at wits end and thinking of returning my Mac, which I love. Thanks guys and gals

      Hi Canada

      I have no problems with any of my macs (MacBook, MacBook Pro & iMac). I've been trying to find information about your network drive and the only thing I can think of is to try playing the files with iTunes to see if that's any better. Also can you try copying one of the media files to your macbook to confirm that it is a streaming problem and not something with the computer itself.

      Hey all sorted, I bought a airport extreme, too expensive, but it works.

      Streamed a 32gb 1080P file wireless, and not one stutter. good investment I say.

      But now having problems with port forwarding, thanks for your help
