5.6.5 - slower channel changing?

I recently noticed that changing channels feels slower. I just timed it with a stopwatch app several times, and it's almost exactly 4 seconds.

I really feel like it used to be faster?

I'm on the latest Flex Quattro firmware 20230505, and latest Apple TV OS.

I'm using a 1gbe wired ethernet cable, so wifi not an issue here. Latency to the internet is under 10ms, and much less on the local LAN.

Any ideas here please?

Can you submit diagnostics from the app immediately after slow tune

I need HDHR device id to find the diagnostics


Can you make a 30s recording from the channel and share it

Does this recording help @tmm1 ?

I see the same thing on my setup, I’m using the standalone Channels for HDhomerun app (not DVR). Don’t think it’s for slower recently but has always taken about 4 seconds to tune to a channel.

Apple TV 4K (2nd Gen) tvOS 16.6

Please can I ping you on this again @tmm1 - did the linked video help? I'm hoping there's a fairly simple bit of buffer tweaking in the code to rectify this.
