The secret life of bars and tone?

    If I had my TV on showing a test pattern and it suddenly came to life like that I would have been happy for a year. But it would probably have to be totally random. :)

    I so want to use that for bars and tone on all my projects in the future. I wonder what a station would do if that was on the tape?
