Slight stutter when watching Optik TV on XBOX 360
I've recently switched from Shaw to Telus mainly for the free PVR and faster internet. Everything has been going pretty well for the first few weeks that I've had it. PVR works, quality is good, haven't had any downtime yet.
I do have one small issue though...when watching TV on the XBOX 360 (new slim 250 GB free from Telus) I get a slight stutter throughout. Every 10 seconds or so there is a slight...I'm not sure how to describe it...hesitation, maybe. It seems to be happening with everything, live TV, recorded TV, VOD...it doesn't make most TV unwatchable but it's very annoying, especially with sports and football (where it is very noticeable). I'm pretty sure I didn't have this problem before the recent XBOX 360 dashboard update.
Is anyone else having this problem? I'm using an entry level Panasonic 720p plasma that I got for free with my house. It's connected to the TV with HDMI and I'm sending audio via optical out to my all-in-one receiver/DVD player unit. I'm connected via ethernet and the connection is good. I can play on XBOX LIVE and there is no stutter in-game or when streaming media from my PC.
The only things I can think of to try and eliminate this problem are to use component instead of HDMI, remove the optical cable, or try wirelessly connecting (none of which I've tried yet, hoping to see if anyone else has had this issue).
