Advertisements Hi --- We've had a Roamio OTA and a Mini for several years. The Roamio works great, although I've just ordered a replacement fan as the original has become pretty noisy. My beef is with the Mini. We have 100Mb internet service from Spectrum, and speed tests (not Spectrum's) show that we get 70-80Mb almost all the time. The Roamio is connected directly via ethernet to the cable modem/router, and the Roamio never exhibits buffering or delays. The Mini is connected to a Gigabit switch which is also connected to the modem/router via wired ethernet. My home computer is connect to the same switch via wired ethernet, and it is from this computer that I measure 100Mb download throughput from the ISP. And lastly, on the Mini, I can watch shows recorded on the Roamio without problems, as well as live broadcasting streamed from the Roamio. The problem is when I try running any of the streaming apps on the Mini, be it Youtube, Netflix, or Hulu. It takes the app forever to load and start, and then forever to pull up navigation screens. Once I select content to play, it buffers. I'm assuming that when streaming from a service, the Mini is making a direct connection to the server, and not routing via the Roamio. If so the connection is ISP > coax > cable modem > ethernet > gigbit switch > Mini. The appearance is that the mini just doesn't have the horsepower to run these apps, or that there is some fundamental o/s bug.It works fine if I stay away from the apps. Once I try to run an app, it's slow to respond in all modes - including playback from the Roamio. Reboot makes it run okay again until I try to use a streaming app. Are the minis just a POS or might I have a bad one? Thanks for your insights!
