In Boston market (not the restaurant) and NBC tve is having issues:
in home (on wifi) i get the first frame and then a spinner. sometimes it eventually starts, often with no audio. when it does start playing it has some buffer, but skipping in it is laggy
out of home (lte) the stream starts faster (with audio) but flakes out to "connection lost" after a short while
edit: and when i watch through the web player, it starts immediately, with audio, for 15 seconds, and then stops. below the player says "remux running 0s"
using iOS app, server on a ds220+ running 2021.09.09.1401
this might show the logs from the relevant time
