It could possibly be the powerline ethernet adapters causing the lag. I've heard(I think from Greg at NCIX) that they don't play nice with some power bars/surge protectors out there. I seem to be lucky with my set as I use them too. Might be something to try eliminating if the above doesn't net any results.

It was the interlace video settings which only seem available when playing a video, they were off I set them to Auto mode and this resolved the issue, files play fine now over the network.

Nice. Glad to hear its resolved!

Have you had a chance to try anything on Netflix in full 1080p HD? Thats what I need to find out about before I pull the trigger and get this setup myself.

I tested HD Netflix and had no issues at all streaming 1080p movies, it looks great on my new projector too.
