It is also under programs, xunity maintenance.

Delete Packages Folder
Delete My cache
Delete Crash logs.

This should improve performance big time on your setup.  :o

Advanced settings on your devices is exactly what it says. Incorrect setup can almost certainly kill your memory and memory cards. Talk to someone who has same device as you and have made the correct settings. On a PC it will not matter much if at all but on a small device it can or will burn them out early.
Check out the Wiki

Also, your isp will have problems delivering High Speed Broadband at peak times.
The illustration below shows on my Virgin Broadband 50mb that at peak times I am lucky to get 3mbs. Not fat enough for Kodi to serve.

Don't expect everything to work Hunky Dory
You will always get SD quality in the evenings and HD quality in the early daytime and after 24:00hrs.

Create an Advanced XML file, I can show you an easy way to create if you are interested.

@ Scott, here goes.

1.    Restart/refresh your Router at least once a month – self explanatory

2.   Create/modify Advancedsettings.XML for buffering.


2. Advancedsetting.xml

Go to Program and select Maintenance Tool> Select System Tweaks

Select tuxen XML> System will prompt you if you have backup your XML, Do Not worry just Click Yes.

Select Verify Advanced Settings. This will show you what you have selected, tuxen XML.

Next Select Create/Edit Advanced Settings. Edit Setting> Network Settings> Network (There you will find settings that you can manually adjust)

Buffermode> Select 1 or 0  (When you select this, you may see a word DISABLED, remove DISABLED and input your value)

Cachemembuffersize> Type 209715200 or 157286400. For 209715200, this will create a memory cache of 200mb, which will take up to 600mb of RAM. 157286400will take 450mb of RAM. Your choice.

Readbufferfactor> Type 10 You can go as high as you want but don't go too high, I use 15, for Wi-Fi connection use 20

After changing these setting, select Write XML File, than go back and select Verify Advanced Settings to check if it is okay. You should see “YOU HAVE Verify Advanced Setting SETTING SETUP”.

DO NOT select Zero Advancedsettings XML or have 0 (Zero) value for Cachemembuffersize, the cache is written to your hard drive, can cause increased wear-and-tear to your drive, your drive may die sooner than later.

Every time you modify the XML, you must select Write XML File.

Settings are explained in more detail below:

Now enjoy your video playback without any buffering issues or problems, of course there will be a video that will give you problem, that could be the way the video was encoded by the uploader, but you will not have any problem playing your video smoothly 97% of the times. Good Luck.

Good luck and let me know if this worked for you.

thanks for the information.
I will test it soon and give you feedback if it works.

Much thanks for the moment my friend.

Cheers ;)

I tested it with two different settings.
First with 209715200/15 and second with 419430400/4.0

Both working but on LiveTV (especially Penthouse HD1) there are often standing pictures.
No watchable. Same like before.
I have deleted cache and  packages before.
Any idea or depends it on Penthouse Source?
My Internet connection is up to 100 Mbit and Kodi works via Lan.

Best Rgds scott ;)

@ Scott,

Live TV currently is not very stable, with live TV I have the same problem, some links will work flawlessly and some don't, but overall viewing pleasure will improve on other sources except for live TV using the Advanced XML file.
And yes, live TV mostly depends on the provider's source.
