My BQM has been a bit patchy over the last few months making me suspect the congestion in my area is getting a little worse
However we recently got a 4K TV as our main TV - and have noticed that 4K streams have a large impact on the BQM - though not always
We are on VIVID 200, power levels look OK, Shub3 is in modem mode with Asus AC86U, on board TV apps used for streaming with TV connected by wire (Sony Android TV)
Asus CPU's are running slightly higher at up to 10% and the odd spike higher than that when streaming in 4K HDR. Have not checked whether kids notice any impact on gaming latency but router is set to auto Game QoS
the patterns for the different services look a little different e.g. Goole Play lower overall than Prime, and Prime looks more saw-toothed. Maybe this is expected due to different apps, compression and formats etc. We do have Netflix but didn't watch that in 4K yesterday so is not shown on the BQM but will see what that looks like
Is this expected / normal - but if so why are there periods of "normal" BQM when watching 4K. We did sometimes have spikes at peak times before this with ordinary HD streaming / gaming etc.
You might need to setup the QoS manually but the type of QoS by VM when there is high congestion may have a impact as there is no QoS in the upstream on the modem when there is limited upstream so you buffer that way as for the downstream thats done before it gets to the modem and if the QoS is bad their you buffer up their.
OK will give that try a try tomorrow when I've got a bit more time. Looks like I would need to set ps4's as high priority but issue is one of them also uses the PS4 for watching netflix/prime which I always thought was not ideal to prioritise the device itself versus auto game traffic
Will be interesting to see if it makes a difference as would assume I'm hitting maybe 30-60 download max on a 200 connection
Edit - looks like I can set bandwidth on auto Qos so will try that and report back
Doh! Will have another go, though currently watching a 4k Hdr series on amazon and BQM looks normal so am guessing it is peak utilisation in my area, though will re try bandwidth limittbe right way round to see if it helps at peak times
