The games aren't rendering properly and I'm having some display issues, how can I fix this?
If you're using a Wi-Fi connection, get as close to your box or internet router as possible. Avoid using two streaming services at the same time. If you can, use a RJ45 ethernet network cable - it will avoid interference with other networks and degradation that can occur with a Wi-Fi network.
