I am travelling in Portugal in my motorhome and using my UK purchased 4K stick to watch TV. Amongst the applications I use is Smart IPTV, side loaded to the stick. I access streaming services using a Mifi device with a local Sim installed. Internet speeds are fast - in excess of 10 MBPS download. The problem I am suffering is an annoying flicker on the screen every couple of seconds. It does not affect the sound. I have tested the problem by using a different Wifi network, turning on a VPN, but it still persists. There is nothing wrong with the hardware as I have a satellite receiver connected to the Tv via the same HMDI port and when watching broadcast channels there is no sign of the problem.
Can anyone offer advice? The one thing I have not tried is to change my country of residence in my Amazon account as I am here in Portugal only for a few weeks. Many thanks for anticipated responses.
@Bob: I may well be totally wrong here, but I think that UK STICKS are only licenced to receive and play streamed digital content in the UK (and other country sticks only in those other countries.) If this is the case then you may be advised to not use your stick overseas.
If i am wrong then someone smarter will hopefully correct me and I'll offer my sincere apologies in advance.
