Re: Movies keep buffering

Hi if lots of people were experiencing this, the forum would be full of it, so this is something with your own equipment or a problem in the local area, are these live programmes or streaming services like Netflix or on demand as it sounds like internet problems. Regards Micky

Re: Movies keep buffering

As LittleMick has mentioned, this is likely to be an issue with either your box or the local network.

Are you using a TiVo box, or a V6? The TiVo has its internet connection inbuilt, whereas the V6 connects to your home hub.

Advice therefore differs between the two.

Re: Movies keep buffering

Hi grahamprescott, is it not possible to connect the V6 directly to the hub via Ethernet rather than via the powerline?
