Hi there, wondering if others have issues with Lightbox buffering frequently in the evenings?

 

 

 

I'm running the app on a appletv4. Speedtest says I'm getting 10Mps, with Spark unlimited. Neflix and TV3 seem to run fine. Don't think anything else on the network is downloading.

 

 

 

But I find I get buffering pretty much only on lightbox. Last night, happening every 5 minutes on an episode.

 

 

 

Do others have this experience?

 

 

 

Cheers

 

Shane

I have an Apple TV4 and have not had any problems with buffering (UFB 100/20)... so I don't think its be device related. Does it happen for all shows (like even the most popular ones)? I used to experience glitchy audio, though not recently.

I thought I saw jittering on large panning shots, but couldn't be certain.  Same platform Apple TV4.  Very unlikely it was buffering for me on 100 UFB

That is usually a mismatched output rate compared to the source material. Does the ATV auto change between 24/50/60 as needed? My android box doesnt which makes it a pain with english stuff at 25fps

Not sure if it would happen on other shows on Lightbox. I just switched to Netflix and TV3, both of which were going fine. Next time I'll try a few different lightbox shows and see. Its not a regualr things, but probably once a fortnight - makes a show difficult to watch. I've also found the lightbox app sometimes slow to load information and update the display. Perhaps I'll try restarting the app next time also. See if that make a difference.

Happened a lot last night on The Strain, S1EP1, paused every few mins. PS3 app, im on 100/20 fibre in Lincoln (which when you combined this with the fluctuating volume described in the annoying audio issues thread) made for a not pleasant experience.
