After reducing my TCP *receive* window to 64KB, the 720p50 stream at the main site is playing just fine - or at least it was, until the presenters just came on for the "Grand Finale".  That was a very abrupt and well-synchronised change in performance, so there has to be something different there.

I appreciate, however, that a 64KB window requires a maximum of 100ms round-trip latency at 5Mbps, so that's not a solution for New Zealond.
