It won't just be a problem on server events, it'll be like that on every single change of source.
Correct. There is currently no picture sync between sources on that feed. Having looked it at, it isn't as bad as I had thought after reading this thread initially.
Incidentally, re the switches to/from ITN output - there have been problems there for some time...even on the main Network feed. It tends to occur only during Night-time broadcasts. The picture distortion is usually a lot more severe than that being experienced on the so called clean feed that UTV are using at the moment. The picture break up usually starts 3/4 secs before the switch to ITN and continues for a similar duration afterwards. Curiously, I've noticed a similar problem from time-to-time around ITN programming on Channel 4 and Five.
No such issues at the BBC though. They prefer sticking Radio Times captions up during programmes.
Having had an early start on a couple of occasions this week, I also managed to catch BBC TWO symbol audio playing over Learning Zone output from around 5.30am. Are BBC Network Pres capable of producing a day of flawless output??
