Is anyone else having trouble with pauses and buffering on 3NOW on ATV? Im using ISP DNS servers, on BigPipe ADSL.

 

I'm not sure if it is the app/platform or my connection/recent switch to BigPipe. I always used to have issues when using non-ISP DNS servers on 2degrees but I believe it played perfectly using their DNS.

 

Downloading a couple of Linux mirrors the connection seems to happily sustain about 10Mbps. Watching the connection with 3NOW streaming it is all over the place..

 

It seems to play OK on PC (but doesn't look very high quality picture) so can't really compare without knowing what quality it is trying to stream.

Big problems with the 3Now app in my household.  I think it's the app itself is seriously flawed.   I think it had a 1-star rating in the app store?    We have issues with our smart TV, Apple devices, and laptops.  Internet and all other streaming services run perfectly fine.   Seriously annoying!
