    hi everyone
    ive just bought a formuler z7+ box and are having problems with buffering .. its been updated to the new software but the problem is still there. it seems to work fine for about 10 minutes or so and then goes into its buffering mode. done a factory and software reset. any help would be much appreciated.
    cheers.

    Good evening, how you connected to your Internet? Did your sub work on whatever box you were using before without buffering?

    In settings. There is a buffer prefix. I set mine to 5 . But it could also be something easier. your internet settings. Depended on your isp

    If trialling a new server sack it and try another. It's a process of illumination

    Try reducing the buffer by 50%
    But I would again look at your isp settings . They have a habit of adjusting settings.. myiptv app is smooth but not without issues.
    trial a different provider as a temp..
    Wi-Fi or Ethernet ?

    change rhe wired connection from Auto DHCP to Static IP. If you continue to buffer. After trying this. Contact your provider of the box and return it.

    This has to be a problem on their behalf with the q router. As you are the second person this week with this issue and I had it my self glad my guide and @stuss Formuler knowledge has got you up and running.

    I spent a lot of time reading up on pro's and con's on anything I buy. But most of what I have learned is on forums such as Techkings.
    The help I have received on here has been invaluable..
