Freezing and breaking up of picture and sound on YouView and IPlayers

Any help greatly appreciated. When playing back recordings the picture often feezes! Have the same problem with iplayers too, but far greater as the picture breaks up and the sound also. Funnily enough the commercial ads during the programmes are fine!!! I have checked for systems updates and downloaded. All pulgs and sockets are ok and have switched everything of at the mains and back on a again. Still no joy. Gave up trying to watch a film on Netflix yesterday as it froze five times. Cannot watch catch-up on demand 5 as the pictures goes completely bonkers. Pixels all over the place and stuttering sound. Help please?

Are the recordings breaking up on the freeview channels or extra channels? Are you connected staight to the hub or are you using powerline adapters?

Seems to be only on extra channels and 'on demand' and iplayers. I am using adapters.

Might be useful to try a speed test to rule that out as an issue:

If the result is ok, try to connect the box to the hub with an ethernet cable and see if the problems persist.
