Hi there -

 

I just moved a camera from outside to inside, and it is now on full power, plugged into an outlet.  I am viewing the camera live right now, and the screen is showing this cyclic pattern of pixelization.  The picture will clear, then the pixelization intensifies, then the pictures clears up again.  The cycle lasts about 2-3 seconds.  The base station is on a 20MBPS fiber optic internet connection, and the camera is about 6 feet from the base station.  I am viewing remotely, where I am connected to a broadband connection at work that approaches 1TBPS, so I don't think there are bandwidth issues.  Has anyone else experienced this?

Yes, exactly what I see as well with pro 2 cameras. Annoying, low quality, pixilated, rhythmic.

sounds like a pulsing of the key frame from compression

Yes, I’m experiencing the exact same thing with Arlo Pro. The picture never totally clears up though just goes from bad to worse. Very frustrating. Seems to be a bad firmware update.
