    4000T:
    Has anyone seen the following or have any ideas - I've started to see some stuttering on whichever broadcast I'm tuned into after stopping watching a recording, coming out of Netflix etc. It lasts around 5-10 seconds then goes back to normal. It's been happening the past week or so having never seen it in the previous couple of years.

    Thanks.

    I also should have said it also happens for a few seconds when starting the box.

    Yes, I see this when starting the box sometimes, and also when changing channels. I especially see it on BBC 4 since the reshuffle last week.

    It might be related to the box establishing the time shift buffer. Can't say I have seen this on live TV, but it does happen if you elect to play back a recording that has just started for a few seconds until the recording has enough content to give a stable picture.

    Yes, that's it - it's only BBC4 and BBC News (both HD) that I've seen it happening and it occurs every time - boot, channel change, coming out of a recording. I re-tuned last week also and it's happened since then. Tried another tune last night but it made no difference. Any ideas?

    My take is that BBC4 HD moved to a new mux which only shows as 80% (can't remember without looking if that's quality). Something is 100% and the other is 80%. Sometimes the picture on BBC4 HD breaks up. Every other channel is 100/100 I think

    I don't think it's related - I'm at 100/100 for bbc4 hd and even when it happens it's only for the first few seconds.
