Re: Subtitles on BBC flashing 888 up in the corner

"and what we've discovered is that this is an expected behaviour due to a recent change to the new EBU subtitling format"

 

Does this mean that Sky and BT subscribers/users are having the same problem

Re: Subtitles on BBC flashing 888 up in the corner

Also. If this is a change to the EBU subtitling format, why is it not happening if I watch TV directly i.e. freeview?

Re: Subtitles on BBC flashing 888 up in the corner

Does anyone know if this has been fixed yet? (If it has, an official announcement might have been useful...)

Re: Subtitles on BBC flashing 888 up in the corner

Apparently it’s a BBC problem.

Search the community for:-
“The display of '888' on transmission of BBC1 (or recordings from) via V6 box”

Re: Subtitles on BBC flashing 888 up in the corner

London SW19.

Just watched Pointless with subtitles enabled.

Didn't see 888 at all!

Dare I say it's fixed?

Who fixed it?

VM or BBC?
