GD77 handles choppy input better than MD380

I have been using https://app.brandmeisteractivity.live/ a lot recently to find random active talkgroups, and a lot of the most active ones are XLX gateways, which I'm still a bit unclear on but I guess they could be DMR, Fusion, Allstar, etc, pretty much anything. Interesting some of them sound very nice, some very digital, some choppy, etc.. but I like listening around, kind of reminds me of spinning the knob on the HF rig when the bands were better.

Anyway, today I was listening to one (31059; whatever it is, I have no idea!) and for some reason it was very choppy on my hotspot, both radios were cutting in and out so pretty sure it was the feed itself. But the MD380 (with MD380 Tools) kept stuttering randomly and a few times forever, but the GD77 did not stutter that I've heard at all! I've had to switch channels on the MD380 on and back off like 5 times to make it stop stuttering, GD77 is trucking along.
