Strange Stuttering Frame Rate on ITV HD?

In the past week I have noticed this weird issue whereby when watching ITV1HD, I am getting a stuttering frame rate every few minutes.

It's hard to describe but essentially, it's like the frame freezes for a second but then continues without the missing frame causing a jump in the picture (so as an example, if the screen is showing a person's finger pointing at a blackboard with numbers from 1 to 10 going downwards in a list, he will point to number 1, then 2, then 3, then there will be a frame freeze, and then it will unfreeze and the picture will jump to the person pointing to number 5, then 6 and so on).

I've tried to see the same behaviour on other HD channels but can't seem to do so. I have mostly noticed this whilst watching I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here on ITV1HD so can't be sure if its to do with ITV1HD in general, my V6 box or the Live transmission from Australia to UK during the program causing the glitch (the program is always shown Live)..?!!

Anyone else noticed this or is it just me.....?!

Not seen that here.  What region ITVHD do you get as in may be specific to one?

If you set your video output only to 1080i so that scaling is done by the TV, do you still get the problem?

...not sure of my region - I'm in the South London area if that makes a difference?

.....haven't tried this but if I'm honest, I'm not sure I want to go mucking about with these settings again after my exhaustive testing here: https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Virgin-TV-V6/Version-20-9-1-rc2-roll-out-time/td-p/4017512/page...

Don't think it could be this though as I'm only really noticing this on ITV1HD (and weirdly, more so when watching I'm a Celeb,,,,,,)?!

Re: Strange Stuttering Frame Rate on ITV HD?

You can tell which region your HD is by the news at 6pm each weekday. I suspect it is London.

...London South East then, more than likely.

London will have London News - South East will have Meridian News.

Just checked my TV Guide and it is ITV News London. 

I’ve currently got ITVHD on Corronation Street and I’m not seeing this issue now?! I wonder if it’s more to do with the Live transmission during I’m A Celeb......
