I am having some difficulty with buffering recently.
Current setup is a synology NAS streaming to 2 different Apple TV 4’s via netgear ORBI setup. My collection of DVD’s ripped as well as videos in 1080p have had no problem streaming to Infuse. Recently, I have decided to digitize my Bluray collection after finding out that DTS master audio and Dolby True HD could be passed through infuse. It was around this time I upgraded from Infuse 4 Pro and bought Infuse 5 Pro.
Initially I had no problems, having set up my Synology to share via SMB and playing the full lossless Bluray MKV on infuse, however recently I started to get the buffering spinning icon. After starting a video it will pause about 5-10 seconds in and buffer, and then will continue playing. It will then occasionally buffer (this started about 2-3x per movie), but over the past week it seems to do this about every 2-5 minutes and pauses for about 5 seconds.
I have since changed my synology shares to NFS (which seems to more quickly load the metadata), but some videos still seem to buffer. This only occurs on 1080p lossless mkv bluray rips and on my GoPro 4k videos.
So far I have tried changing to a wired connection (still had issues, and then found out that my Apple TV 4 has 100mb ethernet) so went back to wifi. On other devices I can confirm about 450mb connection via Orbi so I don’t think the wifi connection to Apple TV is the issue.
Is there something I am missing or does anyone else have any ideas to try? I love Infuse and the ability to have centralized lossless bluray is amazing, but not if I continually have buffering issues. Is there a chance this is a limitation of Infuse on my Apple TV 4 and I need to move up to Apple TV 4K? That would give me gigabit ethernet but I would think 450mb I am getting on my Orbi setup should be more than enough to run lossless bluray rip (and my GoPro 4k videos as well, obviously not in 4k on my device).
