Hoseline going offline/distorted audio - openspot to blame?

Hello, up until I received my Openspot, I've been listening to talkgroups on hoseline and participating by hitting a local repeater with my MD-380. Sound quality was always excellent and Hoseline never went offline except after ~ 10 mins or so.

Now I have my Openspot hooked up and Hoseline is going offline all the time (sometime less than a minute), sometimes in a conversation. Also when there is audio, it is frequently full of distortion, dropouts, splatter. THis happens even if the Openspot is not participating in any talkgroup (no LED activity)

Openspot audio on my MD-380 is always perfect when there is something going on, even on the same talk group on my chromebook.

Are the problems I'm having coincidental with the addition of the openspot or real? If real, how can I fix this?

Its a possibility if you have a slower internet connection as you would be using the same internet connection to download two streams-one to the openspot, one to your browser.

Best way to test it is to turn off the openspot and see how the webpage works. If you're having the same issue its not the openspot. Although if its doing it when the openspot isn't in TX, it shouldn't be pulling bandwidth at that point.

I'm able to do both no problem but I have a pretty good connection through a pretty modern modem/router combination that works fine even with a few people in the household streaming video, though.

I don't really use the website though since I if I'm listening to something, its usually coming through the openspot 9/10 times...

i'm also able to operate both openspot and hoseline together. this is probably a coincidence. what happens when you try to use hoseline with your openspot turned off; and vice versa ?
