For some reason one of the cycle of test cards seems to have moved sideways...it's the same on the rpi screen and the off air signal?

Hi Adrian

Well spotted! Yes, I erroneously saved the test cards that I am using for the CardMPEG2 mode in the folder for the carousel of cards. They are a larger image size (720x576 vs 640x480) so overflow the top and right of the screen.

I'll correct the problem with the next software update.

Dave

PS - There is one advantage. If you've ever used the CardMPEG2 mode with the caption enabled, you'll find that one of the cards has your callsign on it.
