Not really as I run a Mac.
I'm absolutely sure it has more to do with the app or All 4 servers than problems with the consumer.
Clearly there's a difference between devices, i.e. chromecast/humax etc. and chromecast handles All4/4OD better.
As far as I know, Virgin Media (VM) have their own distinct network and more or less everybody else Sky, BT, TalkTalk etc. piggyback off BT's openreach. If you take UK users there does seem to be more people (3 out of 4, a massive sample I know) having problems with All4/4OD on VM
I can't ignore the fact that All4/4OD works fine on my 3Mbps connection and it doesn't on your 52Mbps BT. There can't be much difference beween my hb1000s and the hdr 1000/1010/1100S I'd imagine the software is exactly the same and we both use the same openreach backbone I assume.
There is a traceroute equivalent for Mac under 'network utility' and I believe there's a pathping equivalent called 'mtr' which can be run from a terminal window. I realise it's all pretty academic as you use chromecast, but if it were my connection I'd want to run nperf.com as well or a similar speed checker just to double check whether there's any contention issues during busy periods or just general network issues. For reference Graham's 70Mbps VM has a throughput of 56Mbps during a quiet period. My upto 24Mbps adsl comes in at a real 3Mbps and works fine so raw speed isn't the problem, quality has to be an issue.
If there's anybody else out there, a bit bored, and All4/4OD doesn't work or does work with a change/tweak it'd be interesting to see some more stats
