    I've been using RapidIPTV for about 10 days now. And I am overall actually really pleased with the product/service (especially compared to other IPTV compeditors) and from what you can expect for this kind service. So over all, thumbs up to RapidIPTV.

    But... Every night when I try to watch especially UK HD channels, they are buffering, stalling or stops. No problem watching them in SD quality. And no problems in the daytime. I've been through several guides, trobleshooting, wired and wifi etc. And still the same.

    I use MRMC (Kodi) with IPTV Simple PVR on a ATV4 with a 100/100 Mbit connection with a 12 ms latency.

    Is it only me, or is this are others experienting the same problem?

    Best Regards JADK

    I'm also facing the same problem, Most of the time its buffering a lot on weekends and i think its becasue a lot of people are watching the same video, now i got the problem with not only UK channels, The USA, Poland(PL), & UK channels seem to be giving me the same problem. not sure what to do, support says its my internet because the channels are 100% live and working.

    I also tested Rapid IPTV with family members and friends, they alll gave me feedback saying its a lot of buffering going on, now this is different dervices, different internet services.

    i tryed vlc player on pc does the same, i told my clients to try to vlc on pc to see if the problem still going on and it is

    im not sure what it could be and im not sure how to fix it but i hope it gets fixed

    my speed connection(Fiber), 340 Mb\s down and 200 Mb/s up, ping 9 ms. my MAG 254 connected withe wire.
    tested with VLC same issue,
    i'm sure the rapidiptv server is busy.

    It is a known fact that in the morning there are MUCH less internet users. I am on cable 100 meg internet. And I know other people who I got a sub for from Rapid who have 50 Meg... Rapid is stable and no freezing 24 hours... and they watch almost just the UK channels. If they froze they would immediatly tell me. All are on a fibre powered cable internet connection.

    Internet in general is less busy in the mornings, come 5pm / 6pm the internet slows down for everyone, just because you have 100MB internet doesnt mean you'll get 100MB all the time, datacenters become busy, ISP's become busy .... IPTV becomes not so great!

    Why can't you add the HD channels of Sky UK Movies? it really sucks to only have SD.

    BBC Uk (SD and HD) runs badly. Strong buffering. Stop and Go. Can you do something?

    Found out that I have a relative working as a specialist in the network department at Yousee ( my ISP). He told me that that they do NOT do any kind of traficshaping. And COAX and Fiber connections allways runs with af overhead of approx. 30%, (DSL 10%) to secure that you have at least the connection you pay for. He testet my setup, and there is absolutely nothing wrong. Conclusion? I've guess i just have to live with it.

    Anybody else having problems with UK Channels not working? Had a few customers messaged me from different locations saying not working for them.

    Not that I'd noticed on the ones I watched apart from DMAX, which is still buffering every 20 seconds or so.

    Are they still having issues? If so did they mention channels?

    @Rapid IPTV is there any update on additional UK HD Channels? Apart from Sport channels the only HD ones are the free to air ones...

    Other countries, like Germany have a lot more premium HD channels such as History HD, DIscovery HD, SyFy HD etc... When can the UK list get more premium HD channels.....?

    Same here.
    The Rapid team needs to invest in some more servers with higher bandwidth in order to avoid this problem.

    I think the rapid iptv team should say something about this rather than have customers doing all kind of unnecessary stuff.
