My phone, which uses Comcast VoIP, cuts in and out every time the Roku player is retrieving data, so cannot be used at the same time as the Roku player.
Is there a way to give the phone priority over Roku for bandwidth?
I get 4.2mbps on average and my Roku box gets 4 dots 95 percent of the time (except during simultaneous Internet downloads, in which case it gets 3 dots). I wouldn't mind if it goes down to 3 for the duration of phone calls. I've checked during test phone calls and Roku doesn't seem to give up any bandwidth (i.e. Roku is still at 4 dots while the phone cuts out so badly I can't understand a thing). Right now I just pause Roku if someone needs to use the phone, but it would be nice to be able to watch my shows at the same time. Any suggestions?
EDITED TO ADD: Just did a bit more testing. We actually have two phone lines and this only happens to the second (business) line. The main VoIP line actually works fine with the Roku going. I guess this isn't something that most people will run into. Maybe I'll give Comcast a call and see what the difference is between the two lines
