  • Hi Guys,


    I apologise if this is not the right place to post this but I’m really struggling with my VOD on my formuler z8 and this seems to be the most knowledgable place around for that.


    First of all, the z8 box is a fantastic bit of kit and really loving the MTO2.


    Live TV streams flawlessly for hours on end. Never a buffer and channel hopping is so snappy.


    I’m connected to my supplier through a portal.


    However, when viewing VOD, I will get buffering multiple times per episode.

    I have tried using external players.

    I have tried increasing the buffering time (this seems to do nothing for the VOD)

    My device is wired and up to date with current updates.


    Any other tips Or tricks to try? Or is it purely limitations of my supplier? Live TV is perfect.


    Is there anyway to allow the z8 to download a buffer on the VOD? It doesn’t seem to be doing that.


    Thanks in advance
