Try using it wired ethernet and see if the frame drop goes away.

>> I upgraded to the Raspberry Pi 5, after compiling v33 mythtv from the source, everything just worked smoothly out of the box with no tuning, no overclocking, menus responsive, jump forward and backward was quick. But since I had adequate cooling, I am running the Raspberry Pi 5 overclocked from 2.4Ghz to -> 2.9Ghz. Unfortunately, 3.0Ghz wasn't stable for me and kept crashing. Also I am not running 4k since my TV is just HD 1080p.
