Well, believe it or not 'use video as timebase' fixed it!
[Settings->TV->Playback] Though I have little idea why...
I have watched stuff for a couple of days and although I get the occasional
infrequent hiccup (guess everyone does) I do not get the prebuffering pause
messages like I used to and playback is smooth!!
I can go on to fix the sometimes distorted sound and RW/FF issues now!
Thanks and regards, Graham
