Now that we’ve cut the cord, we get a lot of our home entertainment by streaming (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc).
This is not always a pleasant experience – pretty much inevitably, at some point the video will stop. We’ll get a spinning clock or equivalent message, or sometimes it’ll just freeze with no explanation. Sometimes it picks up again quickly…sometimes, not. Often we can un-freeze it by rewinding or starting over…sometimes, not.
I assume that it’s buffering, or the bandwidth is choking, or something like that.
How can I keep this from happening? Is it my ISP (Comcast cable)? my modem/router? The hardware on the TV (Roku or Tivo, depending)? Environmental?
