Vero 4k, running Oct. 2020 build.
Connected wired to powerline adaptor which has another associated powerline adaptor connected directly to the router.
My BananaPi media server is connected directly to my router.
I believe I’ve mounted the server over SMB using FSTAB.
Log of issue - https://paste.osmc.tv/fuzubepugi
The whole set up used to work fine and at good navigation speeds quite a while ago, but for months and months now it has been sluggish. Particularly going between menus, for instance going from the home screen into a menu like TV Shows or Films. Then once in those menus it is slow to go to a further submenu. This is not the case for menus like “System” however, indicating it is probably a connection to the media server issue.
The delay between clicking to access and it loading is sometimes 20s or so. It appears to be getting slower over time too, although that could be my imagination.
Possibly linked to this is playback of 4K files. I don’t watch much 4K content, but tried it out today. Went to watch some Rogue One 4K and initially it played fine. But skipped forward a bit and then it was just buffering. Exited and left it for a bit. Went back and clicked to resume from where I was, it loaded and then played for a second or too, then buffering… I have managed to watch this 4K file before, so I know this wasn’t always an issue.
I then logged the whole thing after a fresh restart, so the slow navigation into the menus and the 4K buffering playback should be in the log.
Concerned that it may be throughput speeds over the powerline, I used the arnubox speedtest add on to test my internet download and upload speeds.
Download was bad… 4.79Mbps, but my upload was good 17.21Mbps. I repeated it and got the same results. I’ve no idea why my download speed is so slow. I’m presuming though, that that may be related to my overall sluggish speed issues?
I tried connecting wirelessly, but that was a non starter. Speeds were microscopic after that (0.04Mbps upload, 0.00Mbps download) so I’m presuming there’s too much stuff around there to get a decent wireless signal (I’ve got a chromecast TV, chromecast audio, echo dot, and google home all using wireless connections in the immediate vicinity).
Any suggestions you have would be very much appreciated, and if any further info is required, let me know.
