Hi guys

Trying to work out whether this is a Sky issue or some other issue.

I watch SKY at home via a number of different interfaces two of which are computers another is my iPhone. The iPhone app works perfect over wireless, 2G 3G and 4G , is crystal clear and runs continuously without buffering.

The issue I have is that both PC's when connecting via SKYGO on the web give less than a perfect picture (PC and laptop are both IPS screens), the picture is absolute crap when viewing in full-screen and worst of all, the stream keeps stopping to buffer despite having what I deem to be a relatively fast and stable internet connection (UFB). Often the picture will freeze while the sound continues.

Both the PC and Laptop run Windows 7 Professional, all the software is up to date and deliver performance better than most home computers.

Thoughts? Does any body else have these issues?

This is common and is constantly complained about here.

There's another thread on the crap quality ongoing already.
