hello, Ive posted this on kodi forums too for more eyeballs. hope you like and can help me. thanks.
I am trying to improve performance of my rpi3 on wifi. it has full bars
or almost full bars with an adapter stuck right into its usb-hole. i
have a 2.5 amp power supply on its way to replace the current 2.0 amp
one. idk if there are power issues, the rainbow never appears. Yes i
have the mpeg2 license.
i have edited my advancedsettings.xml like so:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
i am trying to smooth out my wifi that looks like this:
the drop you see is coincident with a stutter in the video, then it
peaks to recover… similar peak doesn’t happen when i load a video, no
matter how high i set readbufferfactor … though i havent gone past 8.
Also, i figured, top reports 500 free mbs, why not use 450 of them? …
maybe too much??
perhaps… perhaps those curl commands for advancedsettings.xml will
help, i see a lot of curl failures… idk how to use the curl commands.
ill look into it tomorrow.
Lastly i’d like to mention, rpi3 is butter smooth bringing up menus
while playing video in the background but … changing channels fills my
body with fear and the rpi3 becomes unresponsive for a while, sometimes
it does switch ok, but surely won’t switch 3-4 times… it will freeze.
seeking usually causes freezing behavior.
Here are my logs from last 2 sessions… many sorries, idk what to cut out that is important, so there’s all of it…
it’s so close! it almost works perfectly! surely it will get there with
some advancedsettings.xml tweaks?? what all else can i try?
Thanks tons for your interest and help.
