20200508 freezes

Post by asauers »

Using 20200508 on my nvidia shields and randomly, but frequently the video will freeze for a second or so but the audio continues normally. The video will catch back up then happen again in a few minutes. Happening on latest app, did not happen before.

I’m experiencing the same issue. I’ve tried restarting all devices and server.

I left the beta, Uninstaller and installed the non-beta. Seems to have fixed it.

I have noticed this kind of behavior on previous beta as well on a different Android TV device (Verizon Stream TV). So I don't think this is new to 0508 release or Shield in particular.

Seeing the same on Shield. Hoping leaving the beta will resolve.

Seeing the same on both of my Shields. Gets very annoying. Also seeing the same on my Mi Box.

Any updates on this issue?

I rolled back to the previous release and the viewing has returned to normal so it's definitely related to the 20200508 version of the app.

I'm following this too..

I'm fairly new to HDHomeRun, and don't watch too much live TV so I haven't been able to figure out how long it's going on, but I'm having a very similar issue. I have four "VodaTV"devices around the house, which are Australian AndroidTV boxes.

I'm getting both video "freezes" (2-5 seconds) and random pixelation when using my Android TV boxes... but if I use the iPad, iPhone or even Windows 10 store app version... they are all completely fine. No freezes, no pixelation. For a laugh I put the ipad right in front of the TV so I could watch both at the same time, and yep - definitely confirmed! The Android TV version is seriously unreliable. I wasn't sure if it was my VodaTV boxes (I've no idea of the hardware inside), or a common thing with AndroidTV but after reading this thread, maybe it is!

According to the app's setting screen, I'm running:

Version 20200318 (App) / 20200508 (UI)

Yup both the latest standard and beta versions of the Android app are experiencing freezing.

Haven't been able to watch live tv for 2 weeks now.

C'mon guys.

Looking forward to it! In the meantime I've set up Plex to stream live TV, but it's nowhere near as fast as the native HDHomeRun app to change channel :)
