He’s about the give birth to an episode of anime. That’s just how he rolls.

I am having a delay probelm as well the video will freeze leaving the audio running, and it takes the experience away from me when I have 30 seconds of missing video

it happens frequently with most if not all the shows I try to watch, sometimes I luck out and there are no problems.

these are my speed results from speedtest.net

Well you have a connection problem somewhere… when your speed is fluctuating like that and going at 1 or under MBs, that is a problem. I’d say to get a comfortable viewing experience for non-HD you need at least consistent 2-3 MB/s (this is a guess). Usually my connection ranges from 5-10 MBs and if it drops lower than that I get a few streaming issues not only here, but anywhere.

I agree that Hassian has a bad connection. First thing I would check is the actual male connector at the end of your cable wire. They need to be perfect, or you will have terrible speeds. Also, if you have wireless, the modem/router may be shot.

Haissan -
Yes, the problem lies in your connection speed. Your speed tests are showing a massive drop in download speed, which is what is halting the video stream. Audio streams are less cumbersome; that’s why the video halts, but you still have sound.

You should check your cables and hardware to make sure that everything is plugged in securely.
Comcast should have a connection speed test/diagnostic wizard of their own.
Beyond that, you may need to contact Comcast tech support and let them know that you are having these drops in speed.

Sorry you are having difficulties.
Keep us posted if the problem continues or gets resolved.

Does it happen when viewing videos from CNN, Hulu, YouTube, etc?

Last time I had fluctuating bandwidth like that, running PING showed incredible amounts of packet loss. Opened a trouble ticket with Comcast, they sent a tech out and he found a loose connection on the pole, and replaced an obsolete (14 year old) splitter/filter.

Another possibility:

I sometimes have problems where the frame rate slows to around 1 per second. I use ctrl-alt-del to bring up Task Manager or Process Explorer to see if any other process is using up CPU time. Often, there is.
