    You can experiment with a MTU setting in Your router connection settings. Default for adsl is 1492 if you want less use 1472 and if You want maximum for /cable/fiber use 1500. Another thing is to asign a qos to a IPTV device to high priority on port 8080. There is also a Windows TCP configuration tool TCPOptimizer and for rooted android You have Change MTU app.

    Good Luck

    PS. IF YOU STIL HAVE A PROBLEM MAYBE YOUR INTERNET PROVIDER IS FILTERING IPTV TRAFIC SOU YOU SHOULD USE SOME OF VPN SERVECES ( TRY NORDVPN).

    Mtu settings are maximum transfer units that defines size of internet protocol packets. Praticly what it does control is size of packets distributed tru network itself. Sou if mtu size is to big or wrong you have packet fragmentation ( ip packets are comming with a delay so you have a problem ) First configure You router then thevices on your subnet. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maximum_transmission_unit .
    For qos youy must se your router documentation but generaly you have to asign a mac address, port, service or protocol to boost.

    Intresting, so if I ban the kids off the Xbox and tablets and buy them slates and chalk and asign myself QoS to watching sports and telly.

    MTU settings I checked in on 1500 is that the best or is it still worrth having a tinker?

    Many thanks harry
