I've got a Raspberry Pi with Wi-Pi and XBian installed. All works great until I try to look at high def 720p over wireless network. Is there a way to tweak the original settings to increase the network buffer? I have not yet tried to change gpu_mem.

It might not do a difference? – Christian Feb 28 '13 at 11:58
What protocol are you using to share the media over the network? wiki.xbmc.org/?title=Raspberry_Pi/… – Ryan Gates Sep 6 '13 at 2:24

Edit the advancedsettings.xml

nano /home/xbian/.xbmc/userdata/advancedsettings.xml

Change the value to something bigger. It's in bytes.
