I have just installed a NOVA-S-Plus DVB-S card in my HTCP running Vista x64 MCE with TV pack 2008 installed with all hotfixes. Channels on 12483000 Transponder works like a charm but channels on 12456000 stutters and i get many artifacts on the screen. Any ideas about this problem would be great

You need to check your skew as you are getting inteference from a vertical upload.

Thanks for your advise but at the risk of sounding stupid could you please expand on 'skew'.

The LNB that points at your dish needs to be rotated slightly so that it isn't picking up an overload of Horizontal and Vertical signals.
