To start with I have Sky coming though Vodafone cable. So, this could actually be a Vodafone (not Sky) issue.

On Sky Sports HD channels 54 (Badminton) & 55 (Swimming) the live feed is having issues. The audio is intermittently pausing, and I have noticed on a couple of occasions frame strutter.

Curiously, the Bowls on channel 57 (also live HD) isn't suffering the same problems. Another channel which is broadcasting pre-recorded content is fine.

Note: I have an HD ticket for all CG channels (for what that's worth).

Anyone having the same problems?

Frame stutter on 55 is annoyingly regular now. Basically every 4-7 seconds.... *sigh*

Okay, it appears to have calmed down. Before then the swimming got so bad it became a virtual slideshow. However, it's as smooth as silk for now. Long may it continue... :)

Yep had same issues with the swimming (55), then the woman triathlon (58) started stuttering towards the end.  Now the track cycling (53) is starting to have occasional hiccups.

There are currently issues with BBC playout from one or two locations in Glasgow.  These are also evident here in UK.  Don't worry.  Teething problems, lol
