I tried to listen to a dozen radio stations today and got the same problem, buffering. While on the desktop and would start a station and almost immediately it would begin buffering. I watched it for a while and noticed the play button which had been greyed out would now show up. If I clicked on it to play the song, it would begin to play for a short time then switch to the next song and begin buffering again. It would never automatically start playing so you just couldn't leave it and expect it to continue playing. I tried the suggestion you have to shut down the computer and router and it successfully played one song and then began buffering again on the next one. I have a good solid wifi connection and I use Chrome.
mod edit: changed title for clarity
Hey, @daleslad. 👋
Sorry to hear that you're experiencing buffering.
I enabled a trace on your Pandora account to see what's happening. Could you try running through the troubleshooting steps for Chrome? You can find them here: Chrome Troubleshooting
Also, have you tried using a different browser to see if your experience is different?
Let me know. 🎧
Hi Alyssa, yes I've tried all of the troubleshooting steps you recommended but nothing I did changed anything. I have switched to Safari and it appears to be working just fine so I guess Chrome is a non starter when it comes to Pandora.
