Why are streamed 360 videos worse quality than a PS3?

just got a 360 and set it up to stream from my pc using windows media center and quality is far inferior to my PS3 when watching exactly the same video.

360 stated poor network performance when initially setting it up (54mbps router) but PS3 plays them fine.

video is just a standard AVI TV episode.

Both consoles hard wired.

Any ideas appreciated.

Thanks

Both consoles connected by HDMI?
I think media streaming is an afterthought on the 360 whereas in the PS3 it was made to be a media centre.

yep - both HDMI. Basically, exactly the same from source to TV yet 360 shows a far worse picture resolution and juddering (both TV output is 1080i - TV is 1080i)

cheers

What is you're network setup? I've got the complete opposite problem as the PS3 is connected to my router via a switch & the 360 is directly connected to the router, as is the PC I'm streaming off. The ethernet switch has a lot of traffic from powerline adapters connected to other PCs. Do you have any options within your router config to prioritise devices?

Have you tried playing the same file locally on each machine (transferred to the internal hard drive or from an external USB drive/memory stick) in case the Xbox 360 has trouble playing the encoded format regardless of streaming?

lol, do not use your wireless for media centre it will be rubbish, put both your Xbox and media centre pc on the wired LAN, its will be fine, also extra tip install the latest DIvX player on the MediaCentre PC and this will allow you to play MKV's etc through to your Xbox.

I dont have this problem I prefer my 360 for playing files as i think it looks better on the 360 with the sizing of the programme on the screen
