nVidia Shield, HDHomeRun and UK TV stutter

Hi,

Has anyone got an nVidia Shield working with HDHomeRun on UK TV channels without stutter on Live TV?

It seems to be worse on Channel 4 HD and Channel 5 HD. SD channels behave fine, and BBC HD channels also seem ok most of the time.

Other channels have micro stutters. Interestingly playback is smooth if using the Live TV feature of the nVidia Shield itself - so I know the feed is good.

Thanks,
Ben

I fixed this issue, for 1080p HD channels, on my Sony Bravia Android TV by changing the Settings->Advanced->Allow Insecure Connections to "On Same Network". However, I'm still experiencing stuttering on some SD channels. I too have flawless playback through the live channels app.

I had this issue and fixed it by moving to a faster mass storage device.

The latest nVidia Shield 6.0 update contains some fixes that are relevant:

Since this update, I haven't noticed this issue - hopefully this is a permanent fix!
