It is aiming too high. If you magnify the view all you see is treetops
and sky :-(


I'm not sure what you are viewing on, but for me the view is
fully scrollable.

If you want to download a slightly higher resolution version of
the whole panorama, just click on the left hand arrow that
appears when you hover over the clock.

What arrow? What clock? If you zoom all the way out, it's a 180 degree
panorama covering NW to S to SE. No scrolling unless you zoom in to
see part of the picture.

I'm on Windows 10 and Firefox. Sitting on the white line across
the bottom of the screen there is a digital clock. If you mouse
over, it then shows the date, with a down arrow at the left to
download the current image, and a right arrow at the right to
show the current live image.

Beneath the white line are Best Shots, Rotation and Hot Spots

In the top right corner of the screen is a compass indicating the
arc of the selected view, and below this is the magnification
slider.

If you zoom all the way out, it's a 180 degree
panorama covering NW to S to SE. No scrolling unless you zoom in to
see part of the picture.


Indeed so. IJJ had zoomed in but his browser wasn't permitting
full scrolling.

there are now six temporary Red Button channels on 12421 MHz

I noticed RB2 to RB6 in SD on COM8, are they new?

Yes, within the last couple of days.


The loops they're displaying at the moment are below 1Mbps, how much
spare bandwidth was there before?

There are 8 Red Button allocated to Wimbledon


??
What I can see in the epg on Freesat are the normal RB HD and RB 1, plus
the temporary RB 2, RB 3, RB 4, RB 5 and RB 6. On Freeview it is the
same except there is no RB HD.


If you look at the Freesat EPG after Wimbledon starts they are labelled
Wimbledon.


What I see in the epg for Monday morning after the tennis has started
is:

980 BBC RB HD Tennis: Wimbledon Red Button, 2019
981 BBC RB 1 Tennis: Wimbledon Red Button, 2019
982 BBC RB 2 Wimbledon
982 BBC RB 3 Wimbledon
982 BBC RB 4 Wimbledon
982 BBC RB 5 Wimbledon
982 BBC RB 6 Wimbledon

BBC RB HD is the HD version of BBC RB 1. There are 5 additional RB
channels: 2,3,4,5,6, making a total of six different sets of content on
RB channels.

Were you, perhaps, misled by the channel listed immediately before
those?

979 BBC2 WAL Wimbledon

That is the normal BBC2 channel for the Wales region. It is not an RB
channel.

I do hate websites that do things when you hover. I never hovered over
the time so never knew the arrows you described existed. Your word
"clock" makes me think of something round, not digital.

Can't see what's so unusable about it, scrollwheel to zoom, left drag to
rotate/pan ... basically the same as any maps site.
