As I'm not the OP, the answer is no. If I lived there, then I would probably give them a call. Only to get it fixed for viewers who care about sports. I don't/
My guess is they're coming out of an IRD with an NTSC output, then through an A/D converter, an aspect ratio converter, then into the router.
I seriously doubt that. IIRC, WRC is a NBC O&O, which means that corporate bought the necessary gear for all of the O&Os. Plus I doubt that it was a rush job in this case. BTW, I've not seen a video A/D that also captures the VBI, or at least gives the user an option to do so, or not.
Really, I'm pretty sure there isn't a vast conspiracy nor intentional insertion of VBI. More likely they're waiting for a dedicated IRD with an SDI output to arrive. But aside from my guess, you can always just ask.
Nope, never thought that it was being done on purpose. As the feed is 8PSK, any IRD used to tune in the feed would have a SDI output. I don't know of any IRDs these days that don't, especially newer ones.
I just figure that it is a misconfiguration somewhere in the chain that has gone unnoticed.
