So in Spreydon / HeiHei (two places where I have seen the TV recently) the signal is frequently choppy and blocky with Sky channels. This is new, in the years that we have had VF/Sky we have never seen so much interference.

 

I did a speed test and its at a typical level 50/2mbs so its not the internet itself. Its getting annoying.

 

 

 

Anyone else experience it, or can explain it?

Internet speed doesn't affect it, There is a signal strength meter in the settings somewhere, but really a technician needs to test it

Are you on the old telstra cable or on Fibre?

 

Eitherway, call your ISP and log it.

 

If you are on fibre, I dont think a speedtest would give you any indication about the fibre connection as I believe the the VF TV box is plugged directly into the ONT one its own VLAN (and you are trying to do a speedtest via the modem/router which would be a on seperate VLAN).

Im in Rolly and mine was doing this (VF Fibre with Sky via). Turned box off and left off a while then back on which fixed it. Occasional since but when was bad was every channel unwatchable.
