i use torrents when i download tv shows/movies and no problems

maybe its the steams, (am new to the android box thing) as when i use "Supremacy" seems everything works great, but when use "Placenta" some of the tv shows hang and buffer.
...if you max out your upload speed it will choke your download speed
Please explain this..... ? i only watch one show at a time andam not uploading anything at the same time and when i download using torrents, i usually download 3-4 shows at the same time..
my upload is usually 90+Mbs
ok just using phone line ADSL2+ as an example, say you had a possible download speed of 20Mbps and upload of 1Mbps, if you are uploading (via torrent or ANYTHING) and it's maxing out the 1Mbps upload then you will find you can't surf the web or do anything with your download capacity.

Some live streaming services use peer to peer technology, so in order for you to stream/watch, you are also simultaneously uploading the data you're receiving (just like a torrent), so if your internet connection doesn't have a high upload rate then your stream will buffer and crap out. You might see this on coax cable in Cambodia where some providers only offer 1Mbps upload. That's why I stick to fibre.

Having said that, if your upload rate is 90Mbps then I guess it's probably not going to be an issue.

^^well I'd be surprised if you had any problem with that connection, that's pretty much what I had on my FTTB connection in Sydney.

I have been programming the Android boxes since when Kodi was in its prime.
Now Kodi is virtually useless.
If you are looking for a box or have one which needs the latest apps, then PM for a price.

I use kodi too , 8 months +, on my MI Box 3 and it works fine. I don't stream stuff from torrents i download them and then put them on the 1T HDD connected to the MI Box then watch.
