I’ve been working with Sam on a very odd problem and have decided to reach out and see if others are seeing the same issue. My setup is that I have some Vero 4K+, Raspberry Pi and Intel NUCs streaming via uPNP from a Mezzmo streaming server. The devices are a mix of gigabit Wthernet and wireless over the 5ghz band. Everything has been rock solid running new versions of OSMC for the Vero 4K+ devices and LibreElec 9.0.2 for the Raspberry Pis and NUCs.
My goal is to start replacing my Raspberry Pis with Vero 4K+ units to support 4K formats which Raspberry Pis are limited to 1080P. My Raspberry Pis are a mix of gigabit ethernet and wireless 5ghz. Up till now I have had my Vero 4K+ unis connected via gigabit Ethernet and all has been fine. I recently started testing Vero 4K+ replacement for a wireless connected Raspberry Pi. What I am seeing is that when I stream via uPNP to the Vero 4K+ over the 5ghz band the IR remote starts acting up with erratic behavior (multiple repeats of button presses, lack of response etc.) and after a few seconds it totally stops responding. The Vero wireless remote continues to work. When I stop the video the IR remote immediately starts working fine. If I take the same Vero 4K and plug it into Ethernet everything works fine.
I’ve tested this issue on multiple Vero 4Ks, including taking an existing unit off of Ethernet and connecting via 5ghz wireless The problem is consistent with uPNP streaming across 5ghz. I’ve tested 2 different IR remotes, a Harmony 650 and an HP Media Center, and both act identically.
Has anyone else seen this behavior ? Or does anyone else have a Mezzmo, Plezx or similar uPNP server they are streaming to Vero 4K+ unis across 5ghz with an IR remote ?
