Constant Buffering While Watching A Live Show That is Also Recording

I record a morning news show Monday through Friday from 7am to 9am.

I usually start watching at about 7:30am by clicking on the channel that is currently recording. It immediately starts from the beginning of the recording and I begin watching while also being able to skip commercials and try to catch up to live…

After watching for about 30 minutes it begins buffering for several seconds every minute or so. It happens every day. And it happens whether I’m still catching up to being live or have caught up to live.

Not sure if it’s an issue with watching a show live while it is also recording? Or if it’s the length of the recording? Any help would be great.

Technically a live show is being recorded in that it’s being transcoded and written to disk so it can be streamed to your device (except with remote connect).

So there should be little difference, depending on settings for recording quality.

What happens when you click on the show from the recordings screen?
