Roku - Loading .... issues playing HLS

Hello, is there some additional code I can add to help the Roku stop going to the "Loading..." message a few times an hour watching HLS content?
Here is the code in the XML file;

    <streamFormat>hls</streamFormat>

    <media>

            <streamQuality>HD</streamQuality>

            <streamBitrate>0</streamBitrate>

            <streamUrl>http://myserver.com/video.m3u8</streamUrl>

    </media>
Would this help at all? : <switchingStrategy>full-adaptation</switchingStrategy>
if not in the XML, how about in the Roku channel code? Thank you

Re: Roku - Loading .... issues playing HLS

I turned on Playback Debugging and see that my Roku 3 is saying my network is a 0.8-1.2 Mbps Network plugged into my Router direct but my Roku Stick on 5G says 7-10 Mbps, so definitely it is my bad Roku 3. The Roku Stick doesn't have these Loading... issues.

Soooo, anyone seen this before, are the Roku 3's known for bad LAN connections?

Okay, I guess I'll have to buy another one or try a full reset/wipe on the box
