IPTV stutters, is constantly buffering, you see evil: what to do?

If you have this kind of problem and are looking for a solution I want to offer an article that will describe what I would do to check what is wrong in the system of your IPTV.

Before going into the control sequence, in the verifications to be performed, precise that the IPTV is a mode of use of the TV that involves different components.

  • The Internet connection
  • The type of Internet connection
  • The playback tool (TV, PC, TV, BOX)
  • The “harmony lines” channel (basically the ones that give us the flow)

For this reason, when the vision of our IPTV is not optimal we must begin by discarding the various components that are defective potrebbereo, up to track down the one source of the problem.

Our IPTV we see evil? Let’s start with an Internet connection!

If the IPTV explaining goes shots and is continuously buffering (virtually the transmission stops and resumes after a while ‘) could be that there is not enough data from our Internet connection … how to test your Internet connection?

Nothing could be easier: on the internet, from a computer, type Test Speed and you’ll be amazed in the face of hundreds of results you get … I do not think I have to suggest a particular test, you could read what I wrote about in How to Test ADSL line; Optic fiber

A test worth another with these clarifications:

  • Only one test is not enough!
    • The line, in particular ADSL low-value or worse geographic WiFI connections (those you receive with an antenna) have bigger bandwidth fluctuation problems, so at the moment are fine, but five minutes after no more … rehearsed continuously and during times in which detected the defect of vision … to enjoy a good IPTV serve almento 7-10Mb in constantly download

    • If you have a WiFi connection geographically, you have to test the line in different weather conditions because even those strongly influence the performance
    • In terms of stability, optical fiber is the only one that really ensures consistent performance over time … the other methods are more prone to “swings”

If concluded tests on the Internet line, you always have the famous 7-10 Mb in download you can go to the successes checks to determine where the problem may lie.

The IPTV is seen poorly or not seen at all: we test the flow line

Only if we are fully confident that our connection is stable and sufficient , let’s see if the flow line is doing well … how? Easy, we have to get a Buo PC (not those of 1980) and download them VLC. How to prepare a PC to take advantage of IPTV I wrote it pretty well here How to see the TV on PC or MAC without antenna. IPTV with computers and the Internet

Enter your list of channels VLC aboard a decent computer and test your IPTV – ATTENTION !!!! You have to do it in the same house / office / space where you have experienced problems … the Internet connection must be the same!

Even now, do not you start the viewing and after 10 seconds you think “You see tests, the problem is not here! “… a test is that if it lasts a reasonable time … for reasonable time mean that an entire drive must also see it on the PC and mahgari for 2, 3 days to also occur in these circumstances stability.

If the second test ends successfully pass the last step

The IPTV is seen evil: the player tests (TV, TV Box, PC)

Remember that if you came here because you are absolutely certain that the connection is OK and also the flow lines …

At this point we assume 4 scenarios and related operation checks:

  • Smart TV
    • The connection is via cable or WiFi? The WiFi connection can be subject to fluctuations as a function of positioning the receiver then test it using an ethernet cable and test the vision with a wired connection
  • TV BOX
    • The connection is via cable or WiFi? The WiFi connection can be subject to fluctuations as a function of positioning the receiver then test it using an ethernet cable and test the vision with a wired connection
    • Have you tried changing Player (IPTV, Perfect Player, Kodi, etc) although personally I do not think this possibility
  • PC / MAC
    • The connection is via cable or WiFi? The WiFi connection can be subject to fluctuations as a function of positioning the receiver then test it using an ethernet cable and test the vision with a wired connection
    • The computer that we are using has a CPU and a graphics card of this century? I have purchased in the store or stolen in a museum?
  • Decoder
    • The connection is via cable or WiFi? The WiFi connection can be subject to fluctuations as a function of positioning the receiver then test it using an ethernet cable and test the vision with a wired connection
    • You can change the firmware distribution you are using? Often some distributions are better than others or even some do not work at all!

If you’ve come this far and have not found any solution, it is certainly appropriate to test your flow lines in a divero environment (other connections and other equipment) to verify that indeed everything is working properly.
