Ive recently purchased the new Apple TV and have the now tv app for the entertainment package. Watching game of thrones I'm getting a great picture but it's so so juddery! Can anyone help me sort this out. Some days is worse, some days if seems to be a bit better, but at present BBC I player offers much smoother picture. I am using standard broadband wireless, Panasonic veira tv. Apple TV setting is auto for the hdmi and output. Can anyone advise on best course of action before I cancel it? Would it help getting a wired connection or optical broad band? Thanks Ian
Try setting the ATV to 50hz video playback in the box settings.
Also, if your Panasonic TV has motion processing settings, try different combinations.
Hardwired Ethernet would also give you a more stable picture with reduced buffering (not sure it would help with the juddering on the picture though).
I have a ATV 3 with 38mb internet connection over Ethernet with no picture juddering whatsoever.
Also, if you got the ATV 4 you could try deleting and then reinstalling the NowTV app to see if that makes any difference.
Personally speaking, I would not recommend that people use a computer to view any type video.
There are too many variables with the capabilities of graphics chip-sets to recommend their use as an 'across the board' solution for accurately processing and decoding the many different ways video can be encoded and flagged.
In my opinion, you're better off playing video using a hardware playback device that supports 50 and 60Hz along with progressive and interlaced decoding...
