Video:YouTube/MikesMovies



So if you take a look at this video you will see that the problem is suspected to be from the new SKY Q set top box which apparently uses PLT even if it is connected via Wi-Fi.

I'd be interested to hear from anyone else who has had a similar problem which they can attribute to SKY television equipment.
