Roku Ultra HLS Extreme Load Time

I have a channel that I wrote to play Floatplane videos. The same code was working before this latest update (Roku Ultra 4660X 9.3.0 build 4170-46), but now every m3u8 HLS stream I try to play in my channel takes forever to load, sometimes never loading at all (with no errors being thrown via the roVideoPlayer's state field).

Lower res (720, 480, etc.) load faster than the default 1080 (all being separate m3u8 files), but even they still take unreasonably long to load.

The same code works just fine on my older Roku 3 (4200X, 9.3.0 build 4170-04), loading the same m3u8 HLS stream(s) right away without any issue, and even the port I wrote for tvOS (with the same underlying logic/m3u8 HLS streams) works as intended.


Am I just missing something obvious, or is something broken?
