After a year of trying different boxes and different IPTV providers, I finally have a combination that is excellent. I want to share this information, because many people became discouraged with IPTV. Give it another try, because this system rarely freezes, has great picture quality (true HD), and has a playback feature in case you miss a show. You can also use apps such as Kodi. You get live streaming of all the U.S. and Canadian channels, plus UK and other European channels and others worldwide. Since Cable Onda is providing such high speed now, it supports IPTV very well. The box is a Dreamlink T1 Plus, available from Amazon. The IPTV provider is one Carlos de Campo found after much searching. This provider has a tech he can reach immediately if there is a problem, and the tech is very responsive about making fixes. Fortunately there are very few problems with this one. The cost is $12.50 per month if you purchase a one year subscription. I don't make money on this. I just want to spread the word. The Dreamlink has to have a direct ethernet connection to work properly. My modem was in a room far from the TV, so I got Cable Onda to move it. Very simple. If you want any technical details, please contact Carlos at Carlos_DeCampos@hotmail.com or send me a private message.
The freezing seems to be a Cable Onda problem, related to an abnormal upload signal.A Cable Onda tech came to my house tonight and checked out the problem with the freezing. I had written an email to CO reporting a choppy spiked signal, particularly on the upload. The tech confirmed what I said about the uneven upload signal as probably the reason for the freezing. He did some testing and found normal internet was ok, but when he did live streaming (YouTube), there was inconsistency in the upload signal, which he said was not normal. He is going to report the problem to his supervisor and also said everybody who is having the same freezing problem should do what I did, send an email with screen shots attached showing the download/upload graphs. The only speed test site that shows both graphs is Cable Onda's, so that would be the best to use.CO Speed Test Site Everybody who has been having this problem needs to write to CO at this email address:firstname.lastname@example.org Do speed tests at different times of day, particularly when you have the most freezing (most likely from 7 to 10 p.m.). Take screen shots of the download/upload graphs and attach those to the email. The more people they hear from in the various areas of Boquete who are having this problem, the faster they will fix it.Note: Since this is a CO problem, it is affecting people with both Juan's and Carlos' systems.
