For the last couple of months, I have run into constant buffering while watching Live TV with my Fire TV stick using Tablo Connect with a remote Tablo unit.
I have Comcast Internet Service. While the speed is great, the bufferbloat is pretty bad. That is happening somewhere upstream in Comcast’s network, so there is nothing I can do about this.
The buffering is so bad, that typically I get 10 seconds of video followed by 15 seconds of buffering. Unfortunately, the Fire TV App has a bug, that hasn’t been fixed in over 6 months that prevents me from adjusting the remote viewing bandwidth, which is one way I could try to minimize the problem.
I am not having any problems streaming Netflix and Prime Videos, so this problem is totally Tablo related. This problem also only occurs with the Tablo while watching live TV. I can watch recorded programs without any problems.
Is there any hope that these continuous problems are ever going to get fixed, or is it time to get rid of my Tablos and find another solution?
