Noticed something very interesting while watching Sunday Ticket today. I thought I'd share it with you guys.
First off, let it be known that this observation has no bearing whatsoever on the vast majority of ST viewers. You see, I'm one of the rare bunch that watch multiple games (along with Red Zone and Game Mix) simultaneously on multiple TVs.
Anyhow, to get back on point, I've always admired the ST production crew for doing an excellent job on broadcasting all the games (especially RZC) week after week. What I like most is that all the game feeds shown on Game Mix, RZC, and the corresponding channels in the 700s are all in sync (the video and audio are all within a fraction of a second of one another).
My main TV is tuned to Red Zone and when glancing at the other TVs, it helps to have all feeds in sync. But, because the games designated for local broadcast in my DMA (Los Angeles) have to be watched on their respective local channels, those local feeds are no longer in sync with ST. They are usually off a few seconds or so. I know it's nitpicking, but those delays have always bothered me. I would regularly tune to the West Coast DNS feeds or OTA feeds to the get the video as close to in-sync as possible.
Recently, I've noticed that our local Fox feed has become in sync with ST. But, CBS was still off.
However, today CBS was perfectly timed with the other feeds.
I'm hoping that things will remain the same from now on. Perhaps it was just a coincidence, but if D* did indeed do something to "adjust" the feeds, I am very grateful that they did.
