I have channels running on a 2020 firestick, and a firestick 4k.
With the exception of 4 Freeview UK channels, it all works great on Hardware.
If I set the decoder to software, these 4 channels that don't work, do work, but the consequence is slightly poorer quality on all channels, and the HD channels become very choppy.
If I use the Hybrid method on the 2020 firestick, nothing seems to work.
I used to have a dodgy IPTV service years ago which let me select a different decoding method for some channels that didn't work properly, would it be possible to implement something similar, where I could override decoding to software on the channels that don't work?
All the channels just work using the HD Homerun App on firestick, so I don't know what they are doing differently that can't be replicated in the Channels App, but if that cant be replicated, control over decoding on a channel by channel basis seems like a fix that would avoid the faffing about once the channels are set up.
