I've had a few delays but nothing serious. It's also been fine for the last half an hour.

I had buffering until someone pointed out that you can adjust the quality of the stream via the settings icon in lower right corner - going from 1080 to 720 did it for me. No more buffering :D

^ Ditto, switching the res down to 720 worked for us. Reset the router before the second film and it played fine at 1080.

Thanks to anyone who replied. I rushed out and purchased a Roku Express stick from Argos between movies and now have crystal clear uninterrupted viewing so problem solved.

Watched everything so far on a Chrome browser on PC with Virgin fibre - crystal clear pic, no buffering, no issues so far - hoping it stays that way! :)
