Read Speed Slowed by DrivePool?

Question

I have several external hard drives pooled together by DrivePool, which contain full backups of my UHD-BD collection. I'm using the Windows 10 PC on which the DrivePool is located as an NFS NAS. The PC is connected to a router via ethernet cable and the router is also connected to an UHD-BD player via ethernet. I can browse the DrivePool and select files via the UHD-BD player, however playback stutters and audio cuts in and out. If I simply remove a hard drive from DrivePool, and access that same drive separately from the UHD-BD player, all files on the removed drive playback without any issue, which leads me to believe that the read speeds are drastically reduced by DrivePool? Could this be the case? If so, is there any way to increase the read speed so that the files play correctly?

Check the network speed on the UHD-BD Player..  I had a similar problem with a Sony Android TV, turned out the built-in ethernet port was just a 10/100..

Also, having the drive connected directly is always going to get better performance than over the network, because there are fewer moving parts. 

 

Like @Sparhawk mentioned, it may be a slow network jack.  Though, it may be worth making a share on a non-pooled location, and see if that still has the same issue or not.

Now I have an image of you having some sort of steampunk mechanical networking setup...
