So I switched from Nvidia shield to FireTV because it seems to solve "network issues" that I would periodically see when watching TV (read disconnects".
The problem I have now is that FireTV doesn't provide enough storage for a decent buffer. I found expanding it with channels moved to a USB flash drive, I got tons my ore buffer. However, with channels moved to an this drive I suffer frequent pauses in the playback, even when behind in the timeline, leading me to believe that the performance of the drive is the issue.
Can someone recommend a drive they are using (brand / model) that works well?
