Re: Throttling RTMP to Twitch

I've been surviving with the VPN trick.   I went ahead and tested it again last week to see if the issue was still there.  Sure enough, turn off the VPN, and the connection to Twitch gets throttled down to 0 and then back up again.  This happens at least every couple of minutes.

 

I have to wonder, do Rogers "Business" accounts suffer from this throttling.  I'm guessing they don't 😉

Re: Throttling RTMP to Twitch

@RedLir I believe this issue might pertain only to the CODA-4582. Users with this modem and using amazon servers to upload, or download information have been experiencing problems where they are able to download at full speed, but then drop down to 0. 

 

There is a firmware fix available that Intel has deployed, however we have to wait for Hitron to send the new firmware with the fix to Rogers to deploy to the firmware trial community. The next beta firmware for the CODA-4582 might be a big release due to big changes in the code. So, a temporary solution would be to use a VPN or switch back to the older CGN modems.

@RyzenFX  I'm the OP

 

I've had 3 different modems, the other 2 were CGN modems.  That's the stock answer from support.  Change the modem.  It hasn't worked yet! 😉

Re: Throttling RTMP to Twitch

This is going to take a rather focused investigation by Rogers and Twitch engineers and a willing volunteer, all working together to get to the bottom of the problem.  This would be much easier if there was another modem available for test purposes that wasn't an Intel product.  That would either clear the Intel modems or place the problem directly in Intel's lap.  I'll have to post a question in the DSLReports TPIA forums just to see if TPIA users on Rogers Cable system have any success with Twitch uploads.

I streamed on Start with Zero Problems for 2 years with just a minor hitch for a couple of weeks. So ya, this is getting annoying.

Hi @abelmacneil,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums, and thanks for your post. 

 

I completely understand how frustrating it must be to have issues streaming with Twitch. 

 

Can you possibly expand a little on your statement that your network seems great but unstable? Perhaps @Datalink or @gp-se can provide some guidance on how to obtain some clearer data for us to look into?

Re: Throttling RTMP to Twitch

Although I'm not abel, I'm having the same issues where the stream will be rock solid for a few min, completely go to 0kb/s then recover and go back to rock solid. I'm on the CODA4852 modem and I recently switched over from Start where I had Zero problems streaming.

 

This is my SNB info:

and this is my Twitch inspector info:

As you can see, it flatlines throughout the entire stream and essentially freezes the stream, but the sound goes through. It's a wired connection with no extra routers or bridges or anything of the sort.

Re: Throttling RTMP to Twitch

@Tal3 what modem model were you using with Start?  I'm curious at this point to know if it was a Hitron CDA3 or CGN variety or something completely different.  And ..... cable or DSL/VDSL?  You were on R-cable with Start, correct?  If I have that correct then the difference would be the modem and the back-end support as your data should have been routed to Start's servers and then onwards from there.

It was a THOMSON DCM476 on Cable.
