Playback buffering issues on roku express and trouble getting strong wifi connection
for several weeks, my roku express has had trouble keeping a strong connection on playback issues, and it seems to mostly be with only 1 channel, DAZN - a sports streaming device. Live streamed events work fine, but anything I playback that was aired earlier stops to "buffer" (the spinning wheel of death) for a few seconds and then continues. It does this every minute or two. It is not my wife itself as all other devices work fine and stream the same app without problem. I've reset my router, reset roku, uninstalled and reinstalled the channel, moved the roku around, and still the same problem. The roku works fine for streaming other apps, including Netflix, Disney+ and Prime. can see similar issues on this forum but nothing this specific and not sure if anyone has experienced this.
