Can the HR20/HR21/HR22/HR23 stream H.264 or just MPEG2?

My file server apparently isn't fast enough to decode and stream H.264 in real time using the likes of PlayOn PS3 Media Server, or TVersity, so, I was wondering if there were some tweaks I could make to the encoding of the video (change the profile, bit rate, etc) so that I could just play it back directly?

If not, it sure would be a nice feature.

The ONLY format currently supported for Media Share video playback is MPEG2-TS (transport stream). While the chipset built in the unit also supports decoding MPEG4/H.264 format, the software does not currently have any support for streaming media using that format, and no information on future support has been released.

I'm sure you've seen but here is the How-To on Windows Media Share and how to put into TS file format. MPEG Streamclip does take in some MP4 formats....not sure what your H.264 file container is but you could use it to converst to MP2/TS format perhaps.
