BBC Alba Red Button Commentary Default Audio

The BBC Alba coverage of Ospreys v Glasgow yesterday had the red button commentary as the default audio option, instead of the audio that should have been broadcast. I noticed that this happened previously during the coverage of the Edinburgh v Glasgow match on 27th December, but put that down to a TIVO recording glitch. To get the 'actual' gaelic commentary for the match yesterday, I had to select the red button option. Can anyone from Virgin Media tell me why this is happening?

Re: BBC Alba Red Button Commentary Default Audio

I think that VM take the same satellite feed used by Sky & Freesat to distribute ALBA. It would be interesting to know if their viewers had the same issue. The coverage of all these matches is now in the hands of an independent TV producer, so it may even be them that messed up.
