    Evening all, my first post & tbh I pretty much know jack s about led tvs hence why I need to post
    I've just got the Phillips 47pfl6907t, I'm still learning my around the thing (so far v impressed) but when I watch a you tube clip short or long it gets about 20secs into it & freezes, so I guess it needs time to buffer so I puase it for about 1 or 2 mins then its fine for a mine then it catches up with the buffer so by now I guess you get the picture.
    It's connected via wifi so I guess it will have to be connected via lead to the router for a better connection. What you reckon chaps/lasses
    I aspect this is a common Q on here, I have a quick look but can't see anything at the mo, my eyes are all screened out for tonite so took easy option in asking.
    Tnx for replys

    Video streaming requires a fair bit of bandwidth; you can reduce this a little on Youtube by selecting a lower resolution setting on the video itself in Youtube.
    Wired is always better; you could hook up in wired etherent mode temporarily to do a comparison.

    I will try that when I get hold of a cable.
    When I watch euro news app or I player it's all hunkey Dorey so maybe it's more something to do with you tube or the host itself as apose to Internet
