Same issue here. Only seen it on Sky Sports 2 when NRL is on.

Yep, it's horrible tonight but once again it's ok if you record then play. Time for a phone call I reckon.

Be interesting to see what Sky tell you.  Apparently Sky don't have a problem Wink

A very nice young lady told me to reset the box and if that doesn't cure it ring back tomorrow. She did say some channels do play up on some streams which would explain why it's the NRL on 31.

I am surprised no-one from SKY has come on here to offer an opinion. I have given them  a link to this thread, twice. ;)

During the start of the Warriors game on ss2 Saturday night the picture was doing it's usual stutter so I rewinded for 2 seconds and started playing it back to remove the stutter. All was going well and then all of a sudden the picture went black for a second and returned  back to the live feed (without me doing anything). When it returned the picture was perfect and didn't do a single stutter for the rest of the game on either of my decoders. I watched all the NRL games plus 40/20 and the League Lounge on Sunday and it seems like the problem is fixed. Maybe Sky has remotely done something to fix this? Did anyone else notice their picture return to normal on Saturday night and all of Sunday? I have a technician booked for Thursday to replace both decoders but will see how it goes on Monday night footy and if all still well will cancel. Would be great to hear feedback from others. Maybe our messages have got through and their techs have done something about it!

Watched the Warriors on Sunday night and it looked ok but the earlier Toyota Cup game had the stutters. Thanks to SKY if they have sorted the problem. Tonight will tell all I reckon. :)

I dont know what Sky have done but it appears to be fixed now with 3 nights in a row with no stutters on ss2 (including 4 nrl games). Will call Sky today and cancel technician booked for Thursday. Phew!

Rats. This has started up again for me. Once again it's only when I watch it Live, if I record it it plays perfectly. Anyone else having the lag or jitters on the wide view?


I flicked over to the rugby from Aus and it was fine. Frustrating...

Cheers, Rusty.

Yip, I noticed the exact same problem as last year. Once again only on Sky Sport 2 and only when watching a live feed. What the hell is going on Sky? It was fixed last year and then sure enough when the league season rolls around its back as bad as ever. All we can do is start complaining again to raise the issue and get a tech to fix it from their end as we know from last year it is definitely not our hardware as much as sky customer service would like you to believe.

Didn't notice it this weekend so hopefully it's all been fixed.

Yeah it looks good now. Only got to see the Warriors *sigh* but didn't see any sign of the jitters on the TV, me on the other hand. ;) Off topic but that Team takes me from high to low each week.

Aggggh, it's doing it again! REALLY bad for me tonight watching on 31. Couldn't watch the Canberra game at all. No problems with the rugby so not sure what's up.

Anyone from SKY out there that can shed some light? Please?

Cheers.
