I've recently dumped windows media center and switched over to channels DVR. It's working pretty great for the most part. I have noticed the last couple of evenings that when I'm watching tv off my HDHR Primes sometimes the channel I'm on will freeze up. I am using FireTV Cubes and FireTV Sticks as my STB's. Channels server sits on a windows 7 box with 16G of RAM and a i5 processor. 4TB recording drive. I have a dedicated intel gigabit NIC with flow control off.
If I hit the back button to go back to the guide and then select the channel again it starts playing again with no issues.
This seems to happen more overnight, I leave news either CNN or Fox News on overnight it happens on both. Any suggestions as to why this is happening? I am not transcoding locally, I'm set to original quality.
