Media network throttling

Details: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/948066

This tweak will disable the throttling mechanism in Windows that controls multimedia traffic. From microsoft.com: "Because multimedia programs require more resources, the Windows networking stack implements a throttling mechanism to restrict the processing of non-multimedia network traffic to 10 packets per millisecond." This includes all non-multimedia traffic such as reading directory structures, checking for changes in XML files, etc. which can dramatically slow down Media Center Master.

You can disable the throttle entirely by setting the following Windows registry key:

Key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\MultiMedia\SystemProfile
Name NetworkThrottlingIndex
Value 0xFFFFFFFF (hex)
