Hi everyone. New to YouTube TV & like it very much so far. I'd like to play it on my 2015 Samsung UHD but there isn't an app for that year's model yet & I'm beginning to think it there never will be one. So, I purchased an nVidia Shield (2017) & have been using that. But, I do have questions & need other users support.
My internet service is connected to a wired router & is a newer type of DSL which is 25mbs. This service speed does fluctuate sometimes into the low teens but that's rare. But, even when my PC says it's at 20+mbs, the YouTube TV "for nerds" info is usually reads speeds capped at 12-13mbs. The picture is okay at that rate but every now & then the internet speed dips 8-10mbs to below & the YouTube TV "for nerds" reads 1 mbs or less. The picture falls to low quality SD at best. I usually have to reboot the Shield to get it to reset. The oddest thing is I have YouTube & YouTube TV on my PC & the "for nerds" speeds are a solid 20-22mbs & I can even stream UHD video.
So, why would the YouTube TV "for nerds" indicate speeds be lower than what the actual internet speeds are? Perhaps so setting within the Shield? Thanks!
