During the past month or so, I have noticed that when I start playing a file, initial playback may delay for 30 secs up to a minute (white circle spinning). After this initial delay however, playback and all other functions (rewind, fast forward, chapter skip etc) work fine for the duration of the file. While this behavior is easily reproducible, it does not happen every time I select a new file to be played but appears to be random.
This affects both my Apple 4K TVs, its a newly introduced bug (about a month or so), no settings have been changed to the NAS or the clients (apart from the normal push updates to the latest software releases on all devices).
My video collection is stored on a Synology NAS (with HDD sleep timeout disabled), accessed through Gigabit Ethernet to two Apple TV 4K players via NFS and played directly by Infuse 6 (no Emby/Jellyfin integration). All devices are running the latest versions of software.
Can somebody please help me?
