I was so happy when I descoveredthe app for Fire Stick to have dish on the go, As a snowbirder it is nice to go away and see my recorded programs on the TV useing fire stick and app for dish anywere. But why is it buffering all the time think the app or Dsh needs some upgrade. I can watch a move on Amazon on the fire stick and there is no buffering but when I try to watch a recorded show on my Dish it buffers almost all the time. WHY ?
Hey Ardell! You are certainly meeting the recommended upload/download speed, let's take a look at some other things that can be causing your programs to buffer. Do you experience this issue only while watching a program from your DVR or are you also experiencing this while streaming live content? When it buffers does it go to a black screen or is it just freezing/unfreezing?
Let's change the picture resolution settings to help improve your viewing experience. Starting at the home page of the DISH Anywhere app, select the Settings icon on the top right corner. On the following screen highlight General, then arrow right to expand its menu. Highlight Video Quality, then arrow right to expand its menu. Toggle between HQ/SQ and let me know if this makes a difference.
