Whoops, thanks for the heads up

Does that incident on Channel 4’s TNT with the Essex accent Michael Jackson count as a breakdown

Don't link to that one, the poster who uploaded it changed the thumbnail to a very "witty" one to troll the people on here.

CCXTV is having a problem with the picture and sound at the moment with both the picture and sound glitching up every second.

The programme is virtually unwatchable with the problems.

Quick Update: The adverts are also affected.

That’s as exciting as CCXTV gets.

Are you thinking of another video? The thumbnail on this is just from the actual clip:

He must have changed it back, because it was one of his "hilarious" thumbnails with a picture of DVB Cornwall last time I saw it.

Looking through his profile, it does look like he's removed the thumbnails on all but two of the videos.

There's been another breakdown on Sky Sports. This time on Sky Sports Football during live coverage of the MLS.

The breakdown card does contain the new Sky Sports Football logo on a flat red background with the caption underneath saying "we're sorry for the temporary fault".
Stay Safe.

The Midlands Today breakdown was a card in the vision mixer that failed. Apparently they were quote lucky that there was a spare available on site, presumably because The Mailbox is home to the English Regions support teams

Impressive to have diagnosed the faulty card so quickly. Does the Mailbox have a pres gallery?
Write that down in your copybook now.

I should think it was diagnosed because they had a duplicate spare card locally to hand!

Possibly the system indicated which part had failed, or they opened it up and the duff component was the only one without any lights on

Smoke's also a good general indicator.
