v16 Raspberry Pi3 Buffering on Live TV
#1
Hi All,

I'd be really grateful if someone could help:

The Problem:
Random buffering on any TV channel, only present on Raspberry Pi (3) Kodi clients, even the one running TvHeadend. Windows client has no buffering. Videos (played via NAS) are fine. First channel selection often won't buffer, but one or two channel switches later, buffering starts and will continue through all channel switches thereafter. Its probably less likely to happen on an SD channel, but thats hard for me to say conclusively because it appear random.

What I've Tried:
- Overclocking (via OSMC Settings)
- Increasing buffer cache (adding /home/osmc/.kodi/userdata/advancedsettings.xml file, and following these instructions: http://kodi.wiki/view/how-to:modify_the_video_cache)
<advancedsettings>
<network>
<buffermode>1</buffermode>
<cachemembuffersize>139460608</cachemembuffersize>
<readbufferfactor>20</readbufferfactor>
</network>
</advancedsettings>
- Installing mpeg2 license.
- Playing with acceleration settings, none of which helped.
