Did some work on Saturday with TWC, and discovered an issue, while fine for OTA, was causing their processor to have some major issues when regrooming and mixing streams. We and TWC will be sending recordings of the streams to FOX and Terayon to see what is causing the problem. Our HD system, as well as how TWC handles the signal, is somewhat advanced and on the cutting edge, so there are still bugs being worked out even today.
I'm also convinced that there is another problem that has developed on our end late Friday or early Saturday which led to TWC's discovery. Rather than risk killing the race altogther, I let it go as it wans't that bad. All of this gear, including the FOX splicer, is single thread with NO redundancy. Even if I wanted to buy an extra splicer, FOX doesn't make them available.
