I seem to be getting more and more buffering issues daily. Even Covenant is giving me problems despite the fact that I followed the Covenant tweak video :(

if the source is slow, no amount of maintenance is going to stop buffering. The best way to reduce buffering inside of kodi is to get a Premium debrid service.
