My AMC recordings of fear walking the dead are rubbish ????

The 1st show is very blocky 2nd is also blocky and 3rd failed 4th was just OK with light blocky image troubles.

 

Why is that I have blocky recordings at all as BT site say that my broadband Infinity 2 speed of 44.2Mbps is OK for all services even with me getting 70Mbps in the past ???

 

1) Its AMC HD that I am trying to record.

2) I am not using the box on any channel at the time of recording.

3) I have good level of 80% signal from Freeview channels.

4) The BT Humax Youview box is conected by network cable to my Hub 5a.

5) Hub 5a is using a cable DSL that goes into BT socket only few meters away.

 

6) looks like Niose levels are to high on my hub details below could this be giving the recording trouble ?????

My recordings of Fear The Walking Dead are rubbish too. Nothing wrong with the picture quality - the programme is just terrible. I thought it might finally get going after a few episodes, but it's still awful and it's the final episode next week.
