Why is ESPN 2 constantly buffering on my TV? It is hard to watch
since you posted in the X1 area your device is an X1 set top box. If you are watching live TV on a numbered channel, the video is not buffered. you may be talking about pixelation. Would you describe the image you are seeing? also, most equipment carries the audio on the HDMI cables (more capabilities) and the older digital audio coax or fiber tplink is not needed. If you have a DVR, record a prime time show and then play it back. does the receiver decode and play 5.1 sound?
