Why is AirPlay Lagging on Hisense TV?

The likely reason why you are lagging with Apple AirPlay and your Hisense TV is due to the wifi connection you have.

You need a solid wifi connection in order to be able to broadcast content seamlessly and in a smooth fashion to your Hisense TV.

When you have a wifi signal that is not fast enough, that is when you may run into a lot of lag.  

Identifying Lagging Issues With Hisense TV

You need to work to figure out why you are running into lagging issues with your Hisense TV.

There are some steps you can take, many of which revolve around you spending a good chunk of time taking a look at your wifi signal.  

Investigating the WiFi

The way you check the wifi connection from your Apple device to your Hisense TV is to first look for any interference.

Do you have a direct line from the router and modem to the Apple device and your Hisense TV?

If the router and modem are inside of a cabinet, that may be a sign that the signal is not as strong as it should be. Remove interference where you can.

You also want to look at the connection type of your router. Switch to a 5GHz wifi router if you have the option.

You want to have the router in the faster 802.11n mode. You do not want to have it in b/g mode as this will slow down the signal.  

The final piece of the puzzle is to minimize any distance there is between the Hisense TV and the Apple device.

Place the two devices as close as possible and it will help to eliminate any of the lagging you are experiencing.  

Resetting the Devices

Another problem area could just be the devices you are working with. A restart of an Apple device and the Hisense TV can go a long way to helping get rid of any lagging you are experiencing.

Try a hard reset of your Apple iPhone or iPad. When you do the reset it will change things up and refresh the connection.

This will help to clear out any cache and other memory which could be slowing down the connection. A reset can be something that, on its own, corrects any lagging you are experiencing.
