I see this in a few threads here, but can't quite figure out what to check next. I've got Channels on a 2nd gen FireTV, wired to my netgear router. I've got HDHR Quattro tuner also wired to this router. The DVR is on a PC, also wired. When I try to watch live, after 3-8 minutes, the stream freezes. I have to exit to the guide and select the channel again. If something is recording from the same channel, it records and plays back fine. I can also watch the stream fine on the HDHR app and in the Channels web viewer on the PC. I tried tuner sharing on and off, no change.
I have a Pihole on the network, but it is disabled for this test.
Below is from the HDHR log. You can see my most recent tests. 18:17 is with tuner sharing on. The DVR PC is 192.168.1.24. Then at 18:21, I try again with tuner sharing turned off. The FireTV is at 192.168.1.7. The 3rd trial at 18:51 is from the channels web interface on the PC which hosts the DVR.

I have a logcat from the fireTV, but it's 12k lines, I don't want to post that here...
