F1 Qualifying on TSN5 pixelating.

Watching my recording of F1 Qualifying on TSN 5 today I saw an awful lot of pixelating, stuttering, even pausing. I always worry when I see that stuff whether my PVR is failing. But maybe it's just Sky feed. Can anyone else confirm this?

Hey @OLDYELLR,

 

I checked TSN5 for both Ignite and Digital TV and it seems to be okay right now. 

 

Did anyone else in the Community have the same issue during the F1 Qualifying?

@OLDYELLR : As you know I'm also an F1 fan. I watched all of the qualifying and didn't see any pixellation.   Poor Signal or Hard Drive on your trusty 8300.

Re: F1 Qualifying on TSN5 pixelating.

The signal on TSN5 is good, Level -3 dBmV and S/N 37 dB.  No hard drive errors. Today's race recording only only had one little stutter. The race was on both TSN1 and TSN5, so if I'd recorded both I could compare. I also have another SA8300HD. Maybe next time, or any time, I'll do simultaneous recordings on both and see if there are identical glitches.

 

My ISP is going to fibre which will be available in my area in August. I've already ordered a switch to that from VDSL, which will actually be faster and cheaper. They also offer Internet similar to Ignite TV, but with better options and choices, so I have a couple of months or more to decide if bundling that too will work out better than my VIP.
