This problem is driving me nuts, I have a HTPC running DVBViewer and just recently the new C4 (Formerly C42) has started stuttering approximately twice every second, you can also see some minor video glitching.

I am in Hamilton and getting my reception off the central Hamilton location (frequency 690000), none of the other 690000 channels or any other channel at all have any problems and I have 100% signal quality consistently.

Previously the old C42 was fine but since it wasn't a channel I watch particularly often I cant say exactly when this problem started, all I know is C42 was fine and C4 stutters.

Does anyone know why this could be happening?

Yep I've got it too. TV3 Had this issues I while a ago, many people reported it. At least with TV3 you had the option to switch to AC3. Eventually TV3 just came right.

Fine here in the sunny Manawatu - using MediaPortal (latest SVN build) and PowerDVD 10 codecs + AC3Filter 1.63b/Monogram 0.9.6.

Can anyone on the central Hamilton transmitter (not Te Aroha) give an indication either way? Mcraenz are you central Hamilton?

mcraenz: MediaPortal SVN as at about a week ago


and DVBviewer for the OP.  Just wondering whether its a software-specific problem, or a video driver/transmission problem.

Playback straight from capture card with VLC there is no audio for C4, but video is smooth.

Something to do with the audio codec for C4 is causing the problem.

VLC uses FAAD internally - precisely the codec that we were saying has problems on the other thread. Wink
Actually, I've just discovered that the issue is only present on the DVB-T feed for me. I'm using a very recent SVN build of MediaPortal with the Monogram codec, and the satellite feed is fine but the Terrestrial feed stutters.
