Myriad STS v2.6.5 (and earlier)

In a \"Live\" hour, if you have a Q-NXT log that contains two split break entries one after another and they have been set to stop after the break (i.e. Red Dot) this will cause the first break to be dumped.

The STS Master machine constantly checks with Q-NXT to find out what is coming next and it also informs Q-NXT when it can start again.

In this scenario, the first break is cued and then told to play by Q-NXT, once that information has been sent, Q-NXT will want to cue the next item ready for playout, this however is another split break. So it now tells STS to cue the next break, which dumps the current break.

If you do need to play two split breaks back to back, they must be separated by at least one audio entry in the Q-NXT log.
