Normal service has resumed by the looks of things on SD as well.

It was due a power outage according to their Twitter feed.

Seems they used ITV Border as a sustaining feed (once the initial panic subsided)

ALL playouts come from Glasgow, no matter what. But of course Aberdeen can still provide cover. If that makes sense?


Which begs the question has the whole of STV gone down if they can't even switch to Aberdeen?



Is there anything more than a news studio in Aberdeen to switch to?
Write that down in your copybook now.

I'm pretty sure Aberdeen is just a remote source into Glasgow Pres, so if Glasgow is dead.....

Arqiva would have replaced the feed going into PSB 2's code and mux with ITV Border.
That's the advantage of centralised code and mux. I think the northern half of the UK PSB 2 code/mux site is in Leeds or at Emley ?

Do we know if it's a power outage internal to STV or in the wider area and so it might also be affecting BBC Scotland a couple of doors away?

It must have been internal as there is no reported power outage listed on SP Energy Network's fault checker for both PQ's postcode and next door at the Beeb.

And for PSB3 (the HD Mux) it's done at the BBCs central code and mux centres.

we've had a power outage at STV in Pacific Quay so have switched to ITV Border temporarily to ensure you can watch your shows. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible. Apologies for the interruption!

There was no just eat sponsor sting coming out of the first part of X factor, and the lotto insert during the ads stuck on the start frame for several seconds
Edit: the lotto insert cut off too early as well
