Re: Each receiver playing for 5 seconds after channel change then freezes

It is recommended that if you are to do a complex setup like this, keep computers and STBs separate if at all possible.

 

I know it would be a PITA but if you have more than three STBs (including the DVR), run an Ethernet switch directly off of the RG and plug those STBs into that.  Then, get another Ethernet switch and plug that into the RG and plug only computers (and other wireless access points, like DIR-655) into that.  The idea is to try and keep the STBs and computers on different segments of the network.

 

Yes, most SOHO network switches and routers handle the multicast data that uVerse uses for video very poorly.
