I didnt think this was an issue for a while but recently I have been experiencing random skipping in episodes where it jumps a few frames ahead for no reason. In some cases it locks the stream where nothing plays. I am unaware if this is just my end or if its a larger group. I figured I would post here to find out if it was just me. No point bothering with support if its something stupid after all.

I noticed this yesterday, too. And I've seen other people mention this.

It's similar but not identical to, an issue on the Xbox 360 app. However that version you had to rewind to within the skip to see the missing bit, otherwise it would skip again. At least on the PS3, rewinding past the skip will cause the scene to play properly.

If I see it happen again at my end, I'll try switching consoles to see if the 360 has the same jump point.

I've seen this as well over the last few days. It generally skips about 5-10 seconds forward. No particular use case causes it that I have seen yet, or at least I haven't been able to discern a pattern.

However, the overall performance of the PS3 app seems way better all of the sudden in the last 3 days or so, ever since this started occurring, so I'm not particularly annoyed by it. Better to have to rewind occasionally than not be able to watch episode at all.

And it is far, far better than the Xbox 360's version of teh same problem.

These jumps seem to be once-only. I don't know if they'll recur on a rewatch, but rewinding to before the skip point actually causes th scene to play through properly.
