H, I've recently purchased a Google Chromecast HD (the Google TV one with the remote) to use on the bedroom TV as it's not 4K. I use a 4K one on the living room tv and barely see any playback issues when watching live tv. When I watch any live tv on the HD Chromecast I see regular frame drops, basically all the time. I've tried with all three decoder types (Hardware: Seems stable but plays at half the frame rate so things like live sport look wrong, seems to be playing at 25 fps rather than 50 fps - Hybrid: constant stuttering completely unwatchable - Software: closest to watchable as in it seems to attempt to play at 50fps but there are regular frame drops as described above)
I turned on show stats whilst watching on Software and all the frame drops were on output frames, so I don't believe the server is a problem and the connection speed to the DVR server is over 100Mbits.
Is this possibly that the Chromecast HD just doesn't have good enough hardware to play these high def streams or maybe as it's a reasonably new device there's something not supported in the android tv app yet? Any help would be really appreciated!
