Hey, duders. I was wondering if anyone else was having issues streaming GB content from the official app lately. When I go to play a video, it will start to stream in HD but quickly drop to the loading screen and decrease quality. The video will then pick up where it left off and play a few minutes before loading again. This seems to only happen in the evening, so I am wondering if it is a site traffic issue, but I was just curious if I was the only one. Thanks.
I've been running the app since it came out and have loved it. And yes, just recently I've been getting the same issues as you. I was thinking it was Comcast throttling me, but since people have been experiencing the same exact thing I hope that's not the issue anymore.
Does anyone know of a way to contact whomever actually worked on the app?
I'm running it on the new Roku 2 XS.
At the Roku home screen, input the following code:
Home: 5x, Rewind: 3x, FF: 2x
This should bring you to a secret bandwidth settings screen. The default setting will be "Automatic", change it to "3.5".
This will prevent the Roku from automatically downgrading to a lower quality stream.
@evilmax17: I didn't even realize there was this menu (or the other hidden things that I would have never looked for). I will give this a shot whenever the app works again (seems the new site has caused some issues).
@oldenglishc Yes, I have Xfinity.
