I recently switched to using Channels DVR server on a Synology NAS, connected to 2x Amazon Fire TV sticks.. Everything works, but a few things have been a bit temperamental.
My live tv channel changes used to be pretty much instant, now channel changes take anywhere between 5 to 10 seconds to load & play.
When using the FireTV client app, when I want to view "on later" loading times are quite slow - I recon 20 - 30 seconds minimum before anything is displayed.
I've checked everything obvious I can think of - Network is ok, server speed tests to clients ok, NAS is healthy, channel lists up to date etc. Nothing has been added / changed on my network, nor have any firewall, permissions etc changed, my FireTV sticks have been reset, no changes. Also my TV channel lists remain the same - I havent added a load more live tv channels.
Yesterday evening I decided to try running Channels PVR on Kodi & also setup my "movies" & "tv show" libraries in Kodi as a test - Live TV loading is pretty much instant. Playing movies & TV shows is also instant, so is making me think the hardware side of things is all ok & so is the Channels DVR server?
Im not sure what has changed / why channels DVR client app on FireTV is running slower than it used to.
Any help would be appreciated.
