Hi uelmaree123

The platforms team played out the movie using the LAN and ADSL, it is playing fine without any buffering.

Kindly try again and feedback, as it might be network issues on your end.

Currently my CatchUp + downloads are pretty much non-existent. I'm trying Goldeneye and after 34 seconds buffering (HD) there is only 6 to 8 seconds.

My M-Web fibre speedtest shows 54Mbps but on my Explora the speed it is not even 1 Mbps.

Having the same issues on my Afrihost 20mbps DSL line.

Speedtest (wireless) at 17mbps. Explora 2 is wired directly to a gigabit switch.

John Wick (HD) unwatchable.

Netflix almost instant HD streaming with DD 5.1 too.

Same problem again tonight... down to between 0 and 2Mbps on the Explora - close to 50Mbps on my fibre.

Yip, same here. Training Day Ep 1 .. a full 2s of viewing time . testfile from MC around 200-250k as opposed to 4.5Mb

/update 21:00 - testfile back to 4.2Mb, Explora back to normal speeds, although still getting "Download Server Error" every now and then
