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.
Life's a roller coaster. Wear a seatbelt and don't stand up on the hills...
