I've been having a weird problem with the CR app on FireTV today where I'll select an episode of an anime to play and then instead of playing right away, it'll display a black screen for around 1.5 to 2 minutes before actually playing the episode.

This has never happened before and it's always been instantaneous. I have tried resetting my network, uninstalling and reinstalling the app and restarting my FireTV and it has not fixed it.

Anyone else running into this problem today?

UPDATE: It appears to be some sort of buffering issue. Just for kicks I just selected the play and pause several times and eventually it booted up like normal. But this is annoying if I have to do that for every episode I watch now. Hopefully it gets resolved soon as it definitely appears to be an issue with the app itself, as all my other video apps work properly.

Okay, Day 3 and I'm still having issues.

Episodes literally take 3 minutes to start, it'll boot up and then I have to stare at a black screen until the app feels like playing the episode I selected.

This has never happened until a few days ago and I have no idea how to fix it.
