    I picked up a new Mini VOX yesterday and hooked it up by using an Ethernet cable from my Linsys Velop module next to the TV. I routinely get 80-100mbps down from this. it immediately saw my main TIVO and I got rock solid performance for 3 or 4 hours on various channels and streaming apps as well. Was very satisfied.

    Last night before bed I turned it on again and the picture and sound were unwatchable. froze every 2 or 3 seconds. Tried a reboot but didn't fix it. Tested the thru put of the Velop module and got just over 100mbps down... WTH?

    Any ideas from this learned group?

    Thanks Joe - If I read the review correctly there isn't any way to prioritize video streaming but I CAN prioritize the device? Maybe that's worth a try?

    I have said it many times: what is there to lose? I have been reading your threads and looking at the mesh world. It's not for me, but I am not normal. I like to play with my toys, and those systems are designed for users who don't want to play with things. Like I posted elsewhere, I bought the DAP-1650 just to play with. It seems to be a winner. My Mini VOX is using it now. I hope you can get this working.

    I have seen what I call "stutter" on a Mini. It was due to very low network bandwidth. I was using the internal wireless of a Roamio. The "stutter" was worse on HD and 2.4GHz links.

    Wait, if you mean QoS, then that's a whole 'nother issue. Since it's just me, I never need to prioritize anything. I turn it off. Equality.
