Follow these steps to fix lag issues.
1. Restart the Wi-Fi
Sometimes the Wi-Fi sending too much data in and out and serving too many devices at once, can cause the HD streams to lag for the TV. Restarting Wi-Fi helps the device refresh its settings and cool down.
2. Restart the TV/Firestick/Box
The set-top box whether it’s a Shield Pro or Firestick or any Android device has background apps running and also has processing and depends on the RAM. If it’s used for a long time or getting a load from background apps, can cause the CPU and GPU to overheat, resulting in the IPTV App performing slower. Restarting the device helps it clear the useless processes. You can also close other Background apps.
3. Check the Internet Speed
You can test your Internet Speed with a few apps that are available on the Firestick App store and also the Play Store. If your speed is lower than 40MBps your IPTV can lag on HD channels.
