New Streambar Pro playback issues - need help before I have to return it

I am having the exact issue. Apple TV+ is the worst, but also happening in Starz and Hulu periodically. I'll try uninstalling and reinstalling the apps and graduate to a full factory reset. Of note, when it happened in Netflix once the Netflix app at least did the buffering logo (red circle with %) - all the others lagging/skipping audio is EXACTLY how its been described by everyone here. Sounds like an aux cord half pulled out cracking and popping, no sound, and video keeps playing. Then the whole system seems to freeze. I also just bought this a few weeks ago and while I love the idea, the lagging is really bad. Considering a return as well if some firmware updates aren't made.
