I mean, Netflix uses streaming and the quality is quite good. Perhaps its a live vs non-live issue? I know I had my video settings at the highest on the box (1080p, 60fps) so I don't think that was a problem.

    Is there anything (server, box, etc..) that comes close to fta/iks in terms of pic quality on iptv?
    This was my exact results after testing ok2 on mag254. Quality was horrible...i can see pixels with my bare eyes. I have no idea that different boxes can make a difference in quality. Well, other members say so. I am looking into getting a better box like Buzz but not sure how different it will look. If you do, let me know

    well i think when your talking the mag 250 or 254 how old are they?

    buzz 3000 is the new kid on the street and even with the dreamlink plus there is better picture then the old mag boxes.......


    it sucks but with this game some times you have to upgrade not like the old fta that copied a real receiver.....

    theses iptv boxes are changing all the time building them as they learn, the streaming changes with there advances. iptv has come a long way.


    throw out the old box it owes you nothing, upgrade to the newer boxes that can do more for you then just private iptv like the mag box


    just my 2 cents

    Not sure if you got the Buzz already, but i did and i want you to know something as we were in the same boat.

    Tried the ok2 server that everyone is talking about. Quality on sports chs is alright. It is nowhere close to the smooth 60fps on sat/ota. You will easily notice that you are playing iptv ch. Additionally, there is about 20-30 sec delays on all sports chs compare to Sat feed so you will have to stay away from social media and score apps while you watch. If you are used to iks, you won't find a similar service (top quality and minimal delay) no matter what iptv server you try. May be in future but not as of yet.

    No, i had sat feeds playing to compare. No one uses OTA for sports lol. If you didn't know almost all sport coverage are not on OTA. OTA feed to Sat feed might be 5 sec delayed but as i said, no one uses OTA for sports and quality is almost the same. Unlike on IPTV where it's night to day difference compare to smooth sat feed.

    nbc and fox carry sports all the time
    so does cbs,cbc and abc
    I know because I use ota for sports and news
    and weather affects sat reception

    Occasional coverage and random games. OTA is NOT for Sports.

    If you are on the b3w sat footprint, it is reliable for a while now. Never missed a game yet.
