Same show on two tvs

GBKeeper
I've been here awhile

I have 2 tvs, each with their own Ignite box. Can I select a show on one of them and have it play on both tvs simultaneously so I can watch the same show as I move from room to room?

Each box is its own independent stream.

So, for TV, yes - tune each box to the same channel

For streaming services, no. You can't "cast" one box/stream to another box.

and I have $5.00 says they will not be in complete synch. Have watched ball game on bedroom Xi6 within ear shot of living room TV and Xi6 which my wife is watching. Not in 100% synch. Sometimes 1-2 seconds difference.

To me that makes sense tho.
While technically being broadcast at the same time..
Each box when you tune to the channel, has to start the stream and buffer for a few seconds, that buffer could cause that delay.

I had a tv in the kitchen and one in the living room that I could watch at the same time from the kitchen table with no glitching on cable.  Now I have ignite and there is a 2 second delay...so aggravating!!!  Makes me regret my decision to change!
