It has nothing to do with network connection. Different players connected to the same ethernet jack on the same port produce different results.
Im still making sense of it, seems to be two different idea's at play.
In the case here and guardians of the galaxy vol 2 the shield seems to have issues with the above, a shield employee confirmed the issue but said the fix broke other avr's.
Supposedly only lav filters on pc fixed it.
My zappiti does not experience guardians of the galaxy vol 2 bitrate issues and dropouts, however on ralph breaks the internet and incredibles 2, zappiti and the oppo have complete loss of audio in spots. Oppo apparently said it could be an issue with seamless branching and the ripping software (it uses the licensed player for everything including mkv's), and it sounds like makemkv spits out errors ripping these movies.
The shield oddly does not lose audio like those devices, but has split second dropouts possibly from high audio bitrate.
I dont know if these two are related or not, my head is spinning, but its 2019 and its frustrating disney movies are proving problematic remuxed to mkv. And unfortunately makemkv i dont think has ever responded to these issues about seamless branching titles and its software.
