Live TV starts, plays a couple of seconds, then blips, and re-plays

Does this every time.  I can’t stand this.  

Go to or use one of the smartphone web apps and go to Settings. There make sure Enable Fast Live TV Startup is unchecked.

It also helps IMMENSELY to use the hard-wire connection instead of wi-fi.  It was driving me nuts too.  That was the cure and everything is a lot smoother and faster now.
