    bandwidth from provider,dont use hogging resources with bad internet,if its ok with no pc/lappy been used then you will know,have you tried a reboot as in power off box modem and router for 30 secs then on.

    tried a reset on modem and no change like i say it has just started to happen the last week or so i have a VM 10meg connection so that shouldnt be a problem with bandwidth but im no expert just seems strange that it hasnt happened before.

    downloading while using the box is not good as your downloading will rob all your bandwidth

    Cheers for the reply but like i say i have done it in the past with no problems its just started lately plus im not downloading all the time it happens even when im just browsing like if i change web page as it is doing so the telly will glitch untill the page is loaded, just seems strange but if thats the way its going to be then so be it, thanks again.

    glitching is never related to downloading.the amount of bandwidth required by tv box is equivalent to 1kb per second. you have a 10mb connection.reason is related to splitters

    look at cabling. identify cables not required. for a test remove cables that may not be used normally. take it a bit at a time and figure which one is dragging down your connection
