Full Version: Buffering on Live TV
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I'm running the latest Tvheadend client on Kodi 18.8 on my Shield TV.  

I get buffering but only when watching Live TV.  The player cache never seems to fill up on it's own.  I get the buffering circle for a few seconds and then starts playing again before the buffer is full.  If I pause until the buffer is full (and then for a few more seconds) the buffer will then stay full, only dropping by a few percent until it gets back up to a 100%.  When I change channels I have to start the procedure over again.  Recordings play fine with the buffer remaining full.  If I start recording Live TV and then immediately watch the in-progress recording there is no buffering and the buffer stays full.  

I'm using the following Advancedsettings but they seem to have no effect on the Live TV player buffer:

<advancedsettings version="1.0">
  <cache>
    <buffermode>1</buffermode>
    <memorysize>157286400</memorysize>
    <readfactor>20</readfactor>
  </cache>
</advancedsettings>

Is there something else I can try?
