Interesting. When WTVT has to put up a weather graphic over network, the whole thing skips ahead by 2 seconds. When they go back direct to net, they go back 2 seconds and we see the same video/audio over, again. Took them a while to do it, too. Kept hearing the beeps, but then nothing on the screen.
Also, it seems to me the audio level on network direct is lower then when they're routing it through a switcher. I'm guessing whomever is working the game is having fits getting a weather graphic up. He/she got the crawl going, but that's it. I'm happy, too, as they're putting the graphic in the 4:3 area. Blocks a lot of the game.
Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.
