Inconsistent recording - sometimes works, sometimes 1 min

I am wondering if I have this setup the wrong way.

Nvidia Sheld Pro + Tivimate, both fully updated, Tivimate is through wireless with strong connection @2-300 MBS/sec. It is connected via usb-c to samsung T7 2 TB SSD. We have a service with 3 connections and never watch TV live, always recordings. Normally we dont have the TV on at all.

Id say 60% of the time the recordings fail. Is there a setting on the shield or TV mate that can make this more consistent?

Thanks.

I use a Xiaomi TV-Boc connected via wi-fi to my TV and I have a 650mbps internet average speed.
I'm interested in this same problem as my Tivimate recordings are consistently failing.

At this point I'm unable to work out ff it's a provider issue, a hardware or a software issue.

there have been loads of problems regarding nvidia shield since their last update, some hot fixes have been issued since then. I would try a different player, i use an app called ProgTV for all my recordings with no problems at all plus you can pause live TV.

prog TV is from the google play store you can try for free. For PC you download it from his web site.

Thanks, ill give ProgTV a shot. Maybe we can use both. Tivimate is cool, and dang it wouldve been a steal at $25 if the recording thing was reliable.

That could be down to your provider, it does not take much for it to stop a recording
I think it will be a good test with this other program. If they both have issues then maybe it is the VPN I am using. Definitely not ruling anything out, but this should give some confirmation. Will report back.

I like IPTV Extreme, the user interface is easy enough and you can download movies and you can record in different formats

I'm not to familiar with ProgTV and I'm not a big fan of the interface, I prefer IPTV Extreme but both have pros and cons
