I've had a problem with pixelation and break-up of the internet channels for a quite while now. I've been onto the help desk and i've performed various resets with no resolution to the problem. I've replaced Ethernet cables and HDMI cables all to no avail, the channels still break-up.
Is it a problem with my Home hub or is it the YouView box?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Have you checked your internet speed. If they are live channels e.g. BT Sport it is IPTV streamed. Often Netflix is more stable because its buffered and not effectively live. Check the speed first is probably the best way forward. I use stand ard definition on BT progs and I have typically 16GB down 1GB up.
Mostly notice the pixelation issues on Disney a Junior when the kids are watching. I also watch the Discovery Channel a lot and that has pixelation issues also.
My upload speed = 9 Mb , Download = 41Mb so I've got good internet signal.
Is there any noise on your phone calls? Dial 17070 and select option 2, there should be no noise between the announcements.
Noise on the phone line will cause picture breakup even if your connection speed is fine.
What home hub type, how far is it from the BT socket, and did you originally have pixelation or is it new. It could be their signal as pixellation is normally means you are near the digital cliff for example if it was freeview, i.e. digital signals just break up and go unlike analogue ones that just fade into noise. What are the other live channels like.
Sorry to hear of the problems you are having. I appreciate this must be incredibly frustrating. I have a wee man in the house and if anything disrupted his cartoons he would not be impressed and I would hear about it
Disney Junior and Discovery are both IP channels meaning they work via your broadband connection. From the speed you say you have it very unlikely to be related to speed but it could still have something to do with your internet connection, perhaps there are errors on your line as this could well cause the problem you describe.
When you see the pixilation, are there any error messages displayed on screen? Pixilation is sometimes accompanied by error IPC6023 and this may indicate a problem with your broadband connection.
