Somewhere, maybe nowhere
Not sure what you mean eg watching Benidorm season 3 356mb file

TVersity can convert video files to a another format on the fly, known as transcoding and more commonly used for xbox 360's. If TVersity us set to transcode all, then it will try and convert all the files streamed regardless of it is required or not, this could be the cause of your slow downs

Try loading the media directly off of the same drive TVersity is installed to.

What does taskmanager show when you're streaming?

From my experience the PS3 isn't very good at streaming wirelessly, the only time I tried it was round a friends to show them PS3MediaServer, it lagged a ridiculous amount and just made the program look terrible :D.

Found TVersity to be somewhat sketchy with the PS3. I downloaded PS3 server which is free and works really well.
