XTV freezes lately while playing on a Mac

Hi all,


I'm using xtv.comcast.net, and for the past week, the video freezes every few seconds when watching any type of video.  The audio keeps playing, and the video eventually catches up, it drops whole segments of video.  This only happens on my two Macs running Safari (my Windows computer runs it fine), but this wasn't a problem about a week ago.  Any ideas as to what may be causing this issue?

Re: XTV freezes lately while playing on a Mac

No idea why it is happening, but it even happens when watching on my Windows PC.  I watch 80% of my recorded content through the xtv.comcast.net website vs the actual DVR, so I have seen this issue numerous times.  Probably Comcast's system can't handle the load.


I might try an experiment though, and see when I get the issue, mark down the time in the recording when it happened.  Then go to the DVR and find that spot in the recording and see if it glitches there as well.
