Mag 256 freezing/stuttering

Postby eps0n » 07 Jan 2018, 15:25

Hi,

I have a Mag256 which regularly stutters/freezes (but this is not related to my Internet speed), it also takes 2 goes to turn it on, occasionally hangs and sometimes has HDMI issues. The stuttering seems to be related to picture content, detailed (e.g. lots of trees) or fast-moving (e.g. battle scenes) seem much more likely to stutter than less detailed close up scenes.

I am on the latest firmware (2.20.03-256) but on hardware version 7.11-cyb-00 (even though I only bought the box in November 2017). I think the latest hardware version is 7.2 and wondered if the old version might be the source of my problems.

Has anyone any similar experiences that might shed light on this.

Thanks

I have exactly the same problem on a brand new MAG 256. I have 80 MB/sec fiber connection with 75 MB/sec at the LAN cable connected to the STB (as measured by my laptop). The MAG 256 reports the speed variably between 20 and 35 MB/sec. I run Netflix 4K from an Amazon Fire TV box and that is perfect as is iPlayer etc. However the MAG 256 stutters and occasionally refuses to connect for minutes/hours on end. At times the stutter is longer than the stable sections. I know the IPTV is a stable source so it must be the MAG 256. Also the MAG 256 won't switch back on after use and I have to disconnect the 12v input effectively rebooting the STB. Has anyone any idea how I can improve the MAG 256 performance? I'm very disappointed with this STB.

Similar problems here. Device (256W1, 29/07/2017) has always been really hot. From the beginning difficult to turn it on, now most of the time the only solution is to unplug. Wireless also been bad quality although only 10 meters from router, we now have permanently a cable through the middle of our room. The complete freeze (were you see scrambled infomir logo's on top), only started recently but seems to come more often.
Any solutions ?

use powerline adaptors rather than a cable across your room
