Stuck pixel in cricket transmission?


Established Member
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.

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