razor2000nz: anyone else having buffering issues in kodi?  video buffers every couple of mins for 5-10 seconds, AFTV is a wired connection, have tried  all the advanced settings xmls, even installed spmc but that does the same.

seems i wasn't quite doing the push of the setings correctly, i was using the fire tv utility app, have just re-pushed advance setting 3 manually from the trendblog article, and then did a reboot of everything, (router and aftv) seems to have done the trick!

I have BBC iPlayer and 5 installed on mine. I am with Vodafone and unotelly.
IPlayer is fine.
5 just will not work at all. But works fine on a pc via a web browser.
You can instal the stv app to get 'some' ITV content. There is no ITV player of course.

Anyone else noticed that streaming is bit sluggish on FireTV when its connected through Ethernet.

Hmmm. Nope. I use it on ethernet only (WiFi is the enemy of HD) and have no problem.
