Can anyone explain the high score issue with billy's game?

the issue was brought up in stream but i think misinterperted exactly how the high score is changing, so let me explain in a largeer comment here

day1
high score is 12930
billy eventulaly passes 12930 and new highscore is 977480

direct feed goes out, billy moves camera away from machine
when direct feed and camera returns high score is again 12930

12930 is eventually passed with 315240
the 315240 score stays for multiple games, never reverting

end of day the high score is 327870

day2
beginning of stream high score is reverted to 315240
THIS IS WHATS WEIRD. i could see reverting to some internal saved score, but now we've seen it revert to 12930 but more recently 315240, which is a score billy earned. the reverting to previous high scores is what i dont get

billy eventually gets 990080

2:34:36 990080 high score, direct feed goes out, camera not moved
2:48:15 mentions "we gotta wait for the computer people here
2:48:40 blocks view of screen
2:49:33 score reverts back to 315240

weird dialog with doc mac

4:08:13 direct feed cuts out, mentions "gonna have fun with doc tell him i was over a millin"
--remember we know the high score on cab SHOULD say that from earlier in the day desepirte direct feed lowering. is he covering for knowing doc will see the high score?
4:09:11 doc inspects back of machine
4:11:15 we see that weird bug on screen
4:11:42 "i got to 1.1 milion" he tells mac as mac look at on screen score and seems to accept that as believable
whats strange about this, is the score should show the 977480, and when doc mac checks the screen after hearing billy rolled it he doesnt say "nuh uh you only have 315240", he seems to think the roll is believable which is how someone would respond if 977480 was on screen despite 315240 being on the direct feed.....

anyway you get the idea. i'll paste in my more complete notes in the next comment

    Who breaks the continuity of a recording between games? Meaning when a game ends who moves the camera away from the cab until they are ready to go again? Nobody that is who. Thanks to @Jace Hall for showing me that Pac-Man has it's own separate high score table from Ms. Pac and Galaga too and that unplugging the machine still keeps the high score table saved.

    and cutout without showing board at beginng or end, lovely. with all the suspcious activity on the high score of the board i'm very disappointed there was no attempt to show the insides as part of one continuous stream

    honestly, it has some small amount of skill, some fun gimmick value, and an entertaining display. I enjoyed the minute.
