I just reset my Shield TV, because I was having problems streaming IPTV channels. This is my SECOND reset, BTW. Figured if I would reset, start from scratch, and only install a minimum amount of apps, so as to not cause any other problems. Previously, while streaming Area 51, the Shield would stop streaming, and act like it’s buffering. Stream would not come back on. Normally you would check that your reception is good on your WiFi, you had a sufficient speed to support streaming, and that there were no other factors possibly involved. Check, check, and check. Speed is more than sufficient, distance from WiFi source is only 25 ft., signal is excellent, and all equipment, modem and router (Orbi) is new and capable of handling any streaming thrown at them. Normally, you would say it has to be something other than the Shield. Normally, I would agree, but here is the “rub”. I have TWO Shields in the house, experiencing the same issue. I have two Fire TVs, which work flawlessly when streaming under the same circumstances!!! It can’t be a network issue on my end, therefore, all I can figure, is that the problem has to lie with BOTH Shields. Since both Fire TVs work, that eliminates any problems on my end. All I can figure is that, an nVidia update screwed something up, as I seem to recall things working fine, until one of the last two updates. Have read elsewhere of this being referenced to.
Any thoughts, ideas, or suggestions? Apologize for being long winded, but wanted to lay out all the facts, specs, etc., so a possible solution can happen.
