Description
It is forbidden to configure more than one Ethernet port on the same sub network. It may cause sub-network. streaming or management problems Teletext A is not supported Audio change in SDI like PCM < AC3 is not supported <-> Mono audio output is limited to 8 Too High values of TTL are not checked and block the output ANC buffer is too small for 8 audio MPEG Audio Downmix from 5.1 works only in 384kbit/s "High Temperature Up" alarm is reported too late. With specific content and using 5.1 AAC encode, the Kyrion can produce a bad stream after a long time No warning for configuration denial when trying to use S302M with MPEG instead of DVB conformance CRC errors on PMT occur when encoder is set with 16 audios and more than 12 language descriptors WSS should not be present on second field SMPTE352M 'isInterlacedContent' isnt correctly decoded Recurrent loss of AES3 frames (mostly in NTSC) Bitrate target not respected by EAAC Audio alarms 'incompatible' can stay indefinitely opened External audio inputs are not supported PIP is not supported
