New user here so please don’t be too hard on me
My Apple TV is on the latest firmware and ATV flash is fully updated too as of 29th Novemeber. All installed and working, got a Seagate Freeagent 2TB external USB drive as secondary storage and have transferred a couple of dozen videos onto it no problem. They can be seen and played by NitoTV, Sapphire and ATVFiles…
My proplem is that any of the videos will play just fine for a few minutes and then the picture will freeze for a second and then carry on, this cycle is repeated over and over. The sound continues to play correctly throughout. When the picture resumes it is still in sync… This happens on both ripped video files and on complete dvd dumps (VIDEO_TS). Have tried playing the ripped files with Sapphire and ATV Files with the same result. It’s driving me mad as this is the only reason I bought the software as my Apple TV hard drive is almost full. Incidentally, any of the ripped video files play just fine if I sync them across to the Apple TV and play them off the internal drive. They’re nothing special either just SD videos with a 2k bit-rate. The Segate drive is brand new and I can play the videos on my PC off the same drive without any issues…
I’d be grateful for any ideas what’s going wrong?
