As you know, the Euro 2008 championships football have begun. So far, we Dutchies cannot complain 😉 Last Saturday , I was watching Greece against Russia on my TV with analog signal and decided to try the live stream at the site of Dutch public broadcaster NOS (Dutch only) – which is a great site by the way. The quality of the stream was perfect. But I noticed a lag of exactly 30 seconds between the analog TV signal and the Internet stream.
It seems (Dutch only) that Dutch cable company Ziggo states that the lag between analog and digital TV is 1 second and the lag between digital TV and a live Internet stream is also 1 second. What happened to the remaining 28 seconds?
I have a 2Mbit synchronous DSL line directly connected to a fibre network via Telecompleet (Dutch only) which performs very well. Is this due to their performance, e.g. because of network buffering? Or do you have similar experiences?
