Re: Subtitles on BBC flashing 888 up in the corner

Hi everyone, 

I'm afraid we don't have much of an update on this issue at the moment; however our team are continuing to investigate this and we hope to have this resolved soon. 

Thanks again for your continued patience. 

Thanks

Re: Subtitles on BBC flashing 888 up in the corner

Just a reminder for your Tech Guys.

The 888 appears when V6 box subtitles are switched on, but there is no dialogue for about 10 seconds, that is, no subtitles are being generated.

This usually happens during credits and the beginning or end of a program.

I would imagine that the 888 would be consistently apparent if there is a BBC program that doesn't have subtitles, but subtitles are enabled on the V6 box

I haven't been able  to prove  this though.

Re: Subtitles on BBC flashing 888 up in the corner

I have this problem in Hampshire.  Has there been a fix that I have missed?  It's very annoying.  I need the subtitles so switching them off is not an option.

Any advice appreciated.
