Poor video quality with watchespn

Very poor video quality when streaming watchespn to my HDTV. Occasionally quality changes to HD/good, then returns to bad.

Re: Poor video quality with watchespn

How are you streaming? If it is via Roku try this...


Click home button 5 times

Click rewind 3 times

Click fast forward 2 times


It will take you to a screen showing download speeds. Scroll down and click "DISABLE PLAYBACK DEBUGGING" Then click on 3.5 mbps. Try watching a live feed on watchespn. It may take a few minutes to improve the picture quality but just be patient. If that doesn't work it is a server issue with espn.
