I usually end up unplugging and plugging in the Fire TV weekly. It gets befuddled and locked up once in a awhile. It’s been a long time since I powered everything down and back up.
The issue is not so much between my router and the outside world. That comes in at 120MB Down/20MB Up. It’s the Fire TV itself that seems to throttle it to 50MB Down/5 Up. Understood 50MB should be enough. I’m just curious if anyone else is experiencing the same.
I can never watch a 1080p movie that’s over 1GB in size. To stand a chance of watching uninterrupted I have to scroll down to around a 720p @ 750MB source. If I use my laptop through WiFi it’s much better. Understood the Fire TV is not going to compete with a $1300 laptop, but I expect more than what I have.
