Stream Lags Behind Coax Connection

Hi everyone,

 

I have an annoying problem with my cable setup and hoping a brilliant mind here has a solution. I have two TCL Roku TVs - one of them is in my office (coax connected to a box) and the other is in our living room and uses Xfinity Stream Beta to access cable. I'm a big sports guy and love to host friends for games. I noticed that our Xfinity Stream TV (in the living) room lags behind my hard coax connection by 30-40 seconds. It's actually about a second slower than the ESPN app which I find very surprising. Since my living room does not have a coax option, I am wondering if I have any options other than contracting and making a new coax connection in my living room. It's not the easiest procedure, so I'm hoping someone has a better idea!

 

Thanks!

Possibly try a wireless box? Right now you are comparing 2 different sources, so they won’t be equal

the stream is generated on the fly from the supplied media stream. It takes time to encode the stream and then send it out. the effect is like having a few seconds (20-30) delay.
