Re: buffering??????

have you go the picture quality set as "high" as that fixed it for me when I first had this issue on the old Sky Player.

Re: buffering??????

Hi squize, 

 

Buffering can indicate an issue with your broadband connection or the connection between your computer and the router. Please see our Sky Go Troubleshooting guide for this on the Help Centre.

Re: buffering??????

hi i have a buffering issue after the 30 min ad break. This is an issue that has been carried over from Sky Player, I am not the only one experiancing this issue and since Sky Go is just a renaming of Sky Player online with an added library, the back ground programing and code is pretty much the same thing. this issue has been raised on this tread to which i could not reply due to it being archived:

Please could you tell me if sky has yet found a soloution to this problem. My connection speed is between 6-8Mbps so it is not a connection issue. 

 

Many Thanks

Hi MelandHugo, 

 

Can you tell us how your PC is connected to your broadband router is it a wired or wireless connection?

Re: buffering??????

Hi, does it say buffering when it happens or is it just the picture stuttering and dropping frames?

Re: buffering??????

I've also just started to have this problem, after I had to re-register my PC again. The word buffering comes up with the circle thing rotating + % number.

I'm set to High Quality but there again my BB conection is 38Mb down & 9Mb up so it's not my wired conection. Just another Bug in Sky Go.

Re: buffering??????

Hi. It seems to me that since the change to Sky Go I have had nothing but problems. Constant buffering, error messages and such a stupid small picture area when you first log in.

 

The buffering makes it almost impossible to watch a progamme, never had the problem has badly before.

 

And before you ask I have gone through the troubleshooting guide etc.
