Is anyone else seeing occasional picture tearing/pixelation issues with The Walking Dead on TV2 via Sky?
I record it via Mysky and while veiwing occasionally the picture will teari/pixelate, almost like there is a problem with the feed when you are streaming video.
I have only noticed it with The Walking dead, not any other recorded programs.
Which doesn't make sense to me.

Watched the latest episode on free view (terrestrial) without any quality issues. Maybe a sky related issue.

Generally I haven't noticed any pixelation issues with TWD here on FreeviewHD (Whangarei - Parihaka transmitter) However in the latest episode (Monday 12/12/15) there was pixelation of the shot of Rick standing in the canoe, with a paddle in hand on the zombie lake, after Aaron has fallen in. Only time I've noticed it though...

I haven't noticed any.  UHF Wellington (Taranaki St).  No idea which transmitter, but I'm in large apartment building with distributed UHF.  I imagine there is a substantial antenna set up and booster gear.

 

Sky signal is satellite and vulnerable to interference. 

 

I notice our satellite reception in Nelson (Freeview or Sky) pixel-ates or drops out every time an aircraft comes past.  We are about 1.5km to the side of the airport approach/take-off route.
