This is how things started, with the same issues seen via two different decoders with different code paths;

The next one and the others so far have been fine;

That one looks like the faxes from last year when they were having issues on their end.  I had experienced those problems then.  But currently they are fine.  I don't know how to help you but something is goofy for sure.  I hope that you can rectify it!

That's a beauty!  Don't be too bummed out - some of the problems could be on their end.

I found how to reduce the issue in fax reception where the decoder resets timing. Setting the system performance to apps rather than background services seems to greatly reduce this issue.

When set to background, the system devotes almost double the time slice an app has in a cpu core and gives mostly equal preference to foreground and background apps, setting this to apps gives foreground apps precedence over anything running in the background, such as os calls, networking, and etc. Setting to background helps in compute intensive operations as it hives longer timeslices overall.
