I've got 1Gb up and down but Plex still seems to buffer every 3 seconds. Transcoding isn't an issue - in fact it's so fast that plex throttles it down.

Any ideas what can be at fault here and how to fix this?

Edit: Additionally, I've disabled sonarr, radarr, sabnzbd, nzbhydra and everything else that would be taking bandwidth. Still no luck.

It's a remote server? What's your home network look like, or wherever your'e trying to stream it to? Have you looked at Netdata while trying to watch something? Could be a disk I/O issue or RAM limitation maybe?

Whoops, forgot to give details about my home network - I've got 1 Gb up and down. Device I was streaming to is connected via ethernet as well.
While streaming 1080 @ 16.1 Mbps, total RAM usage is around 13% and there doesn't seem to be any disk I/O issues.

EDIT: Seems like this is only happening on the Roku TV - weird..

I've stopped using roku a long time ago. I found the apple tv to be great in handling and the new chromecast. But having a strong router is key also.

So I think I found the problem, or at least the source of the problem - it's the ethernet port. I connected it over wifi and its working with absolutely no issues despite maxing out at around 100 Mbps :ROFLMAO:

Thanks for your help guys

Huh, do you have some strange bandwidth restriction on ethernet ports? Or maybe using an old Cat 5 cable? (vice Cat 5e?...though I guess both are theoretically capable of gigabit speeds...). Weird!
