pixelation when recording

Hi guys,

 

Whenever my PVR is recording a show I get pixelation on whichever tv I am watching live. I have only 2 Cisco boxes (4k PVR + wireless box) and both are hardwired. I have the internet 100 plan. I tried reseting all boxes and the modem but still have issues:( Any thoughts of what I could try next?

 

Thank you

Ray

Unplug the wireless receiver and cat5 as a test. See if your PVR still has pixelation issues when recording.

I once had a similar issue whenever more than one stream was in use (1 recording + 1 Live). It turned out to be a faulty network switch behind the PVR of all things. I had the PVR / Bluray / Roku conntected to that switch. If I was watching only 1 live stream at the time, there was no pixelation. Replacing that switch solved my issue. If you don't have a network switch in the mix, and the basic troubleshooting doesn't fix things, I'd call Telus and have them check your connection just in case.
