Recstudio.. YES! i have the exact same problem.

I have Hero3+ Black. and especially low light theese lines is even worse.

And it is the bacpac extra battery. Remove it.. and its fine.

Fireware is the latest. 2.0

I sent an email to gopro support 2 days ago about this.
doesent matter resolution or fps that i record in.. its the same all across the board. Also with protune on AND off.
With bacpac detached everything is perfect.

And i soo need that extra battery time, coz when i record and stop and then start record over 5-6 hours i need it!
removing helm and change the internal battery every 1-2 hours isent convinient at all. But bacpac just makes theese horrible lines.
And it get worse the less light there is. But even good light indoors is giving small horizontal lines.

And no its not wifi or phone or radio that does this. Its the bacpac.. remove it and its 100% fine.

Sigh.. i hope gopro support takes my mail serious and actually tries to help.
BTW, my camera is 3 weeks old. and the bacpac is about 1 week old now. And every darn recording i done with bacpac on is messed up, have theese lines in em all the time.

the same happens to me, and you are right: the bacpack is the issue. I cannot imagine why!? such bad interference, totally ruining my low light videos, including my concert of my girl. Bad news, and you would imagine this would be picked up in accessory testing. I will issue this complaint to the support team and see what happens. It should not be named bacpac, but full sunshine bacpac.

Wow, I've been having the same problems although lot worse in low light for me, so when I found this post I tried without the bacpac and the problem went away!!
Here's a video example
it does appear to cut in and out at times though which is weird.
Have any of you had luck with the support team? is it a faulty bacpac, or is it just something that happens with all bacpacs in low light?
I had already submitted a case to support team before seeing this post, but not heard back yet...
