    Has anyone else noticed this during the HD cricket (last night's England match for example). There appears to be a problem with one of Sky's closeup cameras where I get a "lit pixel" effect on the screen.

    First time I saw it I thought .. doh .. it's my TV! But it only appears when they cut to that camera :rolleyes:

    (About halfway up the screen, above the score)

    Yeah I saw that last night and also had a moment of slight panic that it might be my TV.

    I attributed it to light reflecting on a tiny spec of water on that particular camera.

    Could be wrong though.

    The wonders of HD. :D

    Doubt you'd have picked that up on SD.

    It's been like that on most games they've covered for the last week I think :D

    Oh right.

    I only saw yesterday's game so that blows my water theory. Must be a faulty camera. Write in and tell them.

    Also spotted it here and had a brief moment of panic, I think it was just the one camera.

    It was. The one used for the closeups of the player at bat.

    I spent 3 hours checking my TV with various Dead Pixel tests, drove me mad,
    Glad someone else noticed it.
