I would imagine the fact that the moderators have already, repeatedly, removed off-topic posts, only for more to be added, must be very frustrating. :rolleyes:

MHEG switching, as in switching between video/audio streams and an MHEG caption. It's not incorrect, you simply misunderstood the point. As I stated in the above post: "that's not actually what I was...

It is switching, insofar as the video is replaced by the MHEG caption. Clearly NOT hidden streams accessed from an MHEG, as would be the case with TVX, but that's not actually what I was...

Compare it with the "Ask an Aussie" link http://www.channel5creative.com/wordpress/5-star-ask-an-aussie/ - the broadcast version is a panned segment, stretched to 16:9. Hardly surprising as the video...

It's not 4:3 content, it was...

16:9 playout would make more sense, this method just reduces the picture quality and confuses some tv equipment.

The last time I checked they weren't even using a standard screen resolution, it was 4:3 with an AFD of "16:9 center".
