Playback jumpy/jittery when playing from macbook pro to tv via HDMI


Standard Member
I can watch videos (e.g. VLC media player, youtube, sky go app) fine purely on my laptop and I can cast on google chrome a video on to my tv and again playback is fine, it's only when I try and use a cable there is an issue:

When I plug in a HDMI - USB C cable into my laptop which is connected to my smart tv and attempt to play the video on my tv e.g. VLC media player the video and sound is very jumpy. I have tried playing around with the settings and changing refresh rate but nothing seems to fix the issue. I have also tried 2 different cables and different ports on the tv / laptop but still doesn't fix it.

I've only had his issue a few months and it worked fine before so I'm not sure what has changed. I would do away with a cable completely but can't cast the Sky Go App from my macbook.

Any ideas?
