Secondly a post from Danielle Nagler, the new head of BBC HD, over on the Beeb's Internet blog - here. Good to see this (often frank) blog is being maintained.
Finally today, a question from Darren that I can't really answer but hopefully someone else can (not being blessed with a 5.1 system myself nor having seen the programme):
Just wanted to know if anyone has noticed any problems with the sound on Last Choir Standing. My av amp is working fine and I can listen to all other BBC HD programmes but for the second week running the sound output has been zero on this programme only, although interestingly enough the amp shows a 2 channel signal detected.Personally, I'd see the lack of sound as a bonus on that show, but that's not Darren's point of course. Our fellow blogger Virgin1 has replied that
This issue has been bugging the BBC HD team since the Eurovision live, sound drop outs on live broadcasts. Yes it is an issue nationally and affects Sky HD customers as wellAnyone know any more info? It's live events that are suffering - other programmes are fine.
