I have 2 accounts tried both on various apps still the same. I have another service that is functioning much better, Don't know what's going on. But, like I said it is somewhat channel specific but has been deteriorating through the night. Tried all the fixes. Sent ticket.
I would like to be of more assistance to you, but over a long period of time, perhaps going back a year, you seem to have a disproportionate amount of trouble with this service either it being out or buffering. I continue to be unclear of what the issues might, but I suspect it's something specific to your provider, your device, or settings. I can't say. No doubt you have looked into some of these troubleshooting tips on page 288, and I see you have a ticket open. Perhaps on this go-round if they give you a reset it might help. For now. Good luck!

Tuned into NBC/NY to see. Been watching for a while now and nothing. No problem at all. Just not experiencing that. Check some of the troubleshooting tips on page 288.
I did..it started a couple days ago..

Can someone check for me polish channel Canal Plus Sport? Buffering pretty bad for me.
Also what app you guys recommend?I use XCIPTV, it was working great for a while, now I noticed more and more channels are buffering. I use VPN and do troubleshooting but that not always help.
Last time I had fox news buffering but fox news 1080 was working fine....

Ok, .. Had to 'unhide' it. No wonder I could find it. Plus Sport 1, and Plus Sport 2 appear to be working normally for me.
I mainly use TiviMate. I do not use a VPN. Certainly, depending on the speed of your service the VPN can cause issues. And, if it is you may want to experiment and change countries and see what happens.

Thanks Mike
Well today I couldn't get anything running, pretty much every channel buffering. I did troubleshooting, change VPN servers, and countries, change the stream type tried without VPN , got TVMate- all the same, buffering. Just about 5 min I launched XCIptv on my phone- same app as the one on the stick, same wifi and VPN- tried fox news and runs just fine while on the stick I have spinning circle...
Is that means my stick is f-ing up or there is some other explanation?

Did your Firestick get the new update? After the series of small updates..then the final one..many Firestick owners are complaining of lack of memory now. Check your memory and see how much you have available. Lack of memory will cause the buffering as well.

Hi, Does anybody has problems with the Game Master EPG server?
It is not working since a week ago. Maybe something has changed, and I wasn´t aware.
Thanks in advance for your help.

@AnnaC, are you having a buffering issue or low space as @Crystalblue6161 described? Have you gotten a low space warning from the device?
If you're using a Firestick, as she indicated the new interface is taking up more space than the old. I'm unclear at this point just how much.
You can free up some space by going through each app and clearing the cache, deleting apps you do not use, and making sure you have deleted the installer package from apps you have installed.

The EPG is working fine. Depending on your app, clear the cache, force close, reload and refresh the guide. If you're using an app like TiviMate, you can clear the EPG, and then update the EPG.

There is an app called "background apps& process list" it shows whats currently running and gives you shortcut to close all unnecessary things
Weird, I almost gave up on it yesterday then when I tried last time it was running smooth. Not sure what an issue is. Like I said everything runs fine on the phone so it's gotta be the stick. My speeds are good, I'm on fiber, Nord VPN gives me 80-100 mb/s.
Next weekend I'll try different stick, let's see how that works

That is a decent app and it can be surprising how many apps don't close properly when you think you close them. The bigger culprit overall is storage space on a stick. If we're talking about a 4K stick I like to have about ~2gb free, but you can get away with less. It was unclear to me,. did the background app and process app clear up your problem or no? - In a more drastic measure that can be time-consuming is to restore a device to factory settings. Doing that arguably eliminates the question of space and memory being an issue.

I've been having buffering problems for a couple weeks now, even after restarting internet, clearing app cache, all the maintenance steps. Still plenty of room on firestick after update because I deleted most everything except Gamers apps. I have a backup service that is working perfectly with no buffering, so I have to assume the problem lies with Gamers somewhere. Hopefully it resolves itself soon.

I have been trying to find out the answer to the size of the new Fire interface. There seems to be a great difference of opinion. I thought I could get an answer from AFT News, or Troy, but no. Some of my devices have updated and some have not. I'll say this, I'm fairly certain on one, there is no difference, however, I just saw the following on Reddit which is suspect. Just being on Reddit it's suspect. If anyone finds out the real truth on this let us know.
"I only have six apps on mine but....prior to the new UI update it was around 2.7 to 3.0 free. After the update I have 3.2 to 3.4 free.
For whatever reason it appears the new version uses less space, at least on my Stick 4k."

There can be a myriad of reasons that can cause these problems as you know. The most frustrating is as you describe, two services, one no problem. Perhaps try a different app and/or different settings and see if there is any change in performance. While I can agree from some of the posts others are experiencing some buffering, it appears in the minority. If it persists you can put in a ticket and asks for a reset but I wouldn't assume that's a help right now.

Buffering issues. I have plenty of memory. I tried rebooting, changing the VPN countries and still major buffering.

I realize you're not alone, and these things can be frustrating. @tedm3 for example has another service that causes no issues, so how do you troubleshoot that? I don't know where you're located, so if you're in a country with one of the services that throttle it can be an issue. Likewise, are you losing a great deal of speed with the VPN running? Have you/can you try it with the VPN off?

I live in the United States. I tried with the VPN off and its the same. I've had this happen a couple of times in the past but not this bad. Oh well

I sympathize with your frustration. Generally, and that's a rather "general" comment these issues are local to the user. But there are odd circumstances as well that are very frustrating. For example, recently the 2.4 TiviMate had many arguing about buffering (I never had any). The 2.5 seems to have cleared up that issue. Why? I gather people with a service that use a custom app had made some changes internally in that app and as people were not made aware, there were issues with the TiviMate and others. In addition, there was a time where I appeared to be down for hours, but my neighbor was up and working. I opened a ticket, got a reset, and was fine. You can open a ticket regarding the buffering, request a reset, and see what happens. However, I do not think there is a similarity between my outage, my neighbor working, and your buffering. I tell you this because it's still likely there's an unknown at your end. If it was a GM problem there would be hundreds of messages here, not four or five. Having said that. I'd like to solve the four or five and will keep trying on your behalf and others.
