Possibly like others, my iPad I player playback keeps trying to catch up with itself an remains static until it does catch up but this is repetitive. My Vierra tv has the same problem on I playertv Can my router be causing this, or is it something I have to live with?

Have you checked what download speed you're getting? You need in excess of 5 Mbps (perhaps nearer to 10 Mbps for the greatest reliability) for HD streaming and at least 2 MBps (with perhaps 5 Mbps being better) for SD streaming.

It's hard to see why you're experiencing problems then. However it might still be worth turning removing the power to your router, waiting a few minutes and then powering it up again. That will reset the connection and might possibly fix your problem.

Have been on to talk talk and all is good with their end and Router after a lengthy check through with me. I am getting way above my router allowance and I have no other problems. They did say it could be my app having trouble for this so I will delete all on mobile, I player and tv for a short while and reinstall.Will let you know .

Spent time with provider and a full check on set up proved speeds I am getting are in excess of guarantee and no other problems, like me they thought of app. I deleted all and rejoined, definitely a major difference, so thanks all.
