No audio for "Small Soldiers" tonight. It's in OAR at least. Called the news tip line and was promptly patched through to Master Control. He was very polite, but does not appear to know how to correct the problem.

What makes it all the more frustrating is the fact that they bought the DD 5.1 equipment months ago, but they still don't know how to use it. Rory Boyce posted a list of upcoming movies shown in HD with DD 5.1 on ABC in the next couple of months (Programming Forum).

They've flipped back and forth between HD with no audio and NTSC with two channel stereo. Looks like they've settled for giving us the NTSC feed with audio. Ugh.

Thanks Linda, at least I now have an explanation why it's not HD tonight.

Alias is a shared experience with my 17 year old. He looks forward to the HD and the girl.

You're welcome, Tom. My apologies to your son. Hopefully, we can get this problem resolved soon. There are several ABC broadcast engineers here on the AVS forum who have their DD 5.1 working. How can we put Gene Faulkner and team in touch with someone who can hlep them?

Edited to add this update: According to Rory Boyce, there was a problem at the network end. ABC failed to send the two channel stereo track. This was only a problem for those stations without DD 5.1 like WSB. :(

It seems like a good reason to get that DD 5.1 equipment up and running.

I hope in another 2 or 3 years this stuff will be history.

I was surprised the Atlanta HDTV Yahoo group had to comments. Or maybe not so surprised. I changed to get the daily digest. There has been nothing of interest to me in a few months.
