Re: FIX FOR PS4 LAG SPIKES - WORKING FOR MANY

Will the fix be in the form of a firmware update?

Re: FIX FOR PS4 LAG SPIKES - WORKING FOR MANY

so its confirmed channel optimization is the problem?

Maybe a firmware upgrade to fix a few lines of code. - cant be done any other way.

It’s a change in the way channel optimisation works, which doesn’t require a firmware update, just a change on the platform.

Re: FIX FOR PS4 LAG SPIKES - WORKING FOR MANY

Hey

So what exactly does changing these options do and what impact does it have for using other devices? I've never experimented with these settings before so I don't really know how they would help the issues. 

I'm just looking for a bit more a detailed explanation.

Re: FIX FOR PS4 LAG SPIKES - WORKING FOR MANY

Out of curiosity has anyone with an Xbox one X tried this / would it make a difference? 

Got VM 200mb connected by Ethernet and most games run fairly well but there is constant speed lag with Fifa 19 and as mentioned in this topic previously its difficult speaking with Virgin directly for assistance.

Thanks

You can still follow the steps in this thread. They are not "Connection Breaking" steps.

Re: FIX FOR PS4 LAG SPIKES - WORKING FOR MANY

hey, I just wanted to know if I changed these settings would it affect my wifi connection to other devices as I am worried my dad may shout at me if it messes up? thanks
