Sound stuttering on BBC4

I'm getting intermittent stuttering in the sound on my TiVo. Only noticed it on BBC4 (though the box is usually on that). I've reset the box but I'm not seeing any improvement. Broadband is fine (well, more than fine at 200mbps!). Anything else I should be trying?

Re: Sound stuttering on BBC4

I've had the same problem on BBC4 HD on my V+HD box. The SD channel seems OK. I first noticed it on Thursday and it was the same yesterday.

Re: Sound stuttering on BBC4

That is interesting. I recorded "Britain's Biggest Fibs"  from BBC4 HD at 21:00 on Thursday and watched it yesterday. There was a definite stutter throughout the recording.

This was on a V6 and I have watched other recordings without any issues, including another recording from the same time slot on ITV. Possibly a problem specific to BBC4 HD.

Nice to be able to post again, after their mistake (removed by the Censorship team).

Re: Sound stuttering on BBC4

Yep, definitely getting this here too on the HD channel (163). Watched History's Biggest Fibs and an '83 TOTP recorded this week and both with sound issues. Have got The Young Montalbano on right now and it's still doing it.

Any chance of a fix, Virgin?

Re: Sound stuttering on BBC4

Sat down earlier to watch Roots, recorded Wednesday evening on BBC4. Before it started I told my partner about this thread and the recording I watched yesterday. Almost as soon as the programme started we noticed the stuttering.

I stopped the recording and went to the iPlayer instead. We were able to watch the programme without any stuttering so it may be an issue with the path between the BBC and Virgin.

Nice to be able to post again, after their mistake (removed by the Censorship team).

Re: Sound stuttering on BBC4

Trying to watch Wagner Rheingold on BBC4 HD tonight and sound absolutely appalling - unwatchable.

Had same issue last week with recorded programmes from BBC4 HD.

I will be phoning VM tomorrow, and seeking bill discount (yet again).

Given what this now costs, I think the service is absolutely terrible and very poor value for money.

Same here. Roots, TOTP2, Wagner's Ring cycle. Only on BBC 4 HD. I've not tried SD.
