With a Amazon FireTV/Alexa latest version and the current Plex player there is horizontal tearing of video on edges.

    Update:
    updated the firmware on the HDHomeRun Extend to the latest.
    In plex changed the transcoder quality on the HDHomeRun Extend to "High quality (30fps limit).

    This changed the quality on the Amazon FireTV to very good, but another problem came back.

    Randomly but not on all recordings, you will get a part of the recording (usually about half of the way through) when the video and audio starts to repeat in small loops. It will play through but very hard to watch.
