Playback does to start for live TV streaming from shield...restart fixes it

WittyCoconutWittyCoconut Posts: 2Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Occasionally when I go to play live TV from a mibox android TV streaming from my shield, it hangs up and does not load. A restart of the shield fixes the issue. How to I correct this to allow for playback without constant reboots?

    I'm having the same issues with my shield pms.

    A new version was released today, 6.3.4 (or if you are on the beta releases). Have you updated and tested the new version yet?

    Where are my log files?

    How do I properly name my media files?

    Yes and still locks up occasionally. If I change channels much I have to reboot to get it to tune after a few channel changes. I run pms on and old windows 7 machine and everything's fine. I'm on the beta also.
