Ran flawlessly for me, not a single judder. Ended up running it from Internet Explorer on a Windows 10 laptop via a standard HDMI cable to a 4k TV. Looked fine and was much better quality than Now TV. I did miss the crowd noise though, I'll admit.

I got no work done today just stressed myself getting LUTV back on. I think it's ok but wish they would keep up with the play - they'll end up missing a goal before the end of the season

ta. i had family round and blamed lutv being overloaded, but it seems to have been my internet which has been a bit hit and miss recently.

i have complained to virgin about this, but it's easier to blame LUTV. as i said the second half was fine, the first half, when it was working looked to be in SD not the usual HD.

LUTV gets the thumbs up for me. Worked nicely for me. Emma's voice lagged by about a second but the picture was good. Her dress was superb playing 2 upfront with Ben Parker at left back worked well.

Aye, bob on for me except missing too much action to show meaningless replays.

Same here. [Sound always lags. Used to it now.]

Are the match pictures from Sky with LUTV commentary on top? I found it frustrating that the camera concentrated on Bielsa pacing the technical area whilst action was going on and I assumed that the pictures were associated with Sky commentary, rather than being directed by LUTV.

the picture quality was exceptional & the feed didn't cut out at any point. the cohesiveness of the whole thing [i.e. cameras & replays following the action & matching the soundtrack] were not as slick as you'd get with one of the main broadcasters. no chromecast option.

overall good, 7 and a half out of 10.

Ben Parker knocks it down a couple of points for me. He comes across as dull and a bit thick. Not really watched much match coverage on LUTV before.

I didn't actually get a chance to test it last night but I gather that almost anything you can have open in a tab in Google Chrome will cast.

Is Parker just standing in for Eddie during Covid?

i think it's something like this - the pictures come from a central feed for the whole league, probably sky, as Bryn Law tweeted that they had no control over them or the lack of replays.

Anyone else finding they're not a huge fan of Becks on commentator duties?

Ah I like Beckford, gives some good insight. Parker not so much.
