Channel : Discovery HD
Program : All

Problem(s) : Many video errors. Breaking up of picture. Almost looks like HDMI errors, but other channels are fine, just this one. Started noticing it a couple of weeks ago.

@WarrenW - thanks for reporting that. I have asked the team to look into it. If you can provide specific programme names on that channel which show these errors, it will help the teams to trouble shoot.

Hi Marietjie

No specific programme... it does it randomly on all the content.

It also seems to me that most content is upscaled and not actually HD. Is this so?

Thanks
