MAG 254 Buffer setting

Hi

I have had my Mag 254 for a couple of days. I was watching football and it started freezing etc.
I changed the internal portal buffer setting to 3000ms which has sorted it.

My question is: I see there is another buffer setting on the Local settings menu which can from 1 to 15. What is this buffer? and should I put a value there is it is currently set to 0?

Thanks

Funnily enough I was aware of the buffer setting in settings but of the internal portal buffer. Curious to find out where that one can be accessed?

Does anyone actually know, what Buffer Setting and Buffering do?
I believe they preload the stream and play it back using the value set (i.e. 0 - 15 seconds). So that if the stream is interrupted it allows the playback to catch up without glitching or freezing as long as the interruption is shorter than the buffer period. I hope that makes sense!!
