Any update on the VOD delay?  Bahrain is the first middle of the night event and if the VOD asset isn't available until hours later it will screw up being able to watch it, especially if the app crashes the live stream close to the end of the program.  I'm not going to be able to subscribe without this as watching the race delayed by an  entire working day means I'd rather watch the race highlights on youtube for free as that will effectively be the same result.

 

 

Fair question. It is an active point within the team. There is no clarification yet as to the likely VOD delay once things settle down. Sorry.

Lazy question. I presume I won't be able to access Spark Sport from Australia next week when I am there?

I get judder when Chromecasting to my 4K Sony Android TV (2018 model) and Shield TV (a little less). What is the likely source of the judder does anyone know?

Don't know, I was getting judder / micro stuttering on my chromecasted stream from my Nokia 7.1 plus to my nvidia shield too; the live F1 race was better and haven't had the time to look at other videos.

Ok, its good that its an active point and that some clarification will occur... I probably won't sub properly after the trial until this is done... would be relatively a waste of money if I can watch the highlights and get he gist of the race.

seems it's only newer gen LG tvs that support SS in the browser. Tried on ours today... TLS error!

 

 

 

good to know they support the protocols..

Also noted why I never saw the studdering on cc

I had mine set to 50hz mode already. Turning that off I do notice a few studders.

Might be worth playing with that setting?
Obviously content dependant. But cc doesn't seem to handle well at running 60hz on 50fps content

Looks like AirPlay from another device is the current solution for ATV. They did mention an app in future plans in the NZ NOG talk. Any ETA for a native app?

Soon, I'm told airplay works brilliantly.

 

 

 

No ETA. There is quite a few platforms on the way though

Thanks for the info, I'll keep an eye out for an app. My experience with airplay hasn't been one of high framerates, even over gigabit Ethernet.

Are you playing content that is in 50fps or 30 though? may not be anything to blame but simply the source isn't high frame rate content

The NBA channel is 60 FPS ..MUTV and EDGE are 50 FPS

 

My understanding is  Android TV's  with built in Chromecast run at 60 HZ  maybe that's where you are seeing judder?

Interesting.  I use Kodi to play back Sky TV (I use an internal server to decode my sky card and play back outside of sky box) and if I don't have Kodi automatically changing the refresh rate (from 60 > 50hz), the sky content judders slightly... Can a) chrome cast force a change in TV refresh rate and b) can the app force a change in refresh rate?  I don't particular want to have to keep changing the rate myself as I have different content and that would be a poor user outcome.
