Sorry, but here's the deal. We've discovered that due to the age of the HD server we use for delay, it won't do 5.1 audio. So until the Olympics are over we're keeping the system set up for the live 5.1 feeds. But that means that wehen we HAVE to delay something - like today's show or the 4-5pm daily feeds - they have to air upconverted or there's no announcer audio. (This whole audio thing is a LOT more complicated thans we originally thought.) So that's why it looked like it did. Sorry, but I can't do both with the equipment we currently have. I spent most of Thursday, all of Friday, and about half of today on the phone and email with everyone up through Dolby's support techs trying to get answers to this problem. We may have figured out a solution, but I'm not sure corporate is going to buy into it since it's going to require spending another $15-20K to resolve. (We're already in about $9K for the Dolby Digital encoder...) When I get an answer later this week, we'll decide where this is going but I can pretty much guarantee that we'll be back to a 2/0 stereo feed (Dolby Prologic) at the end of the Olympics until we can get some more equipment in and installed to fix this.
So sorry for the upconverted - but I can't switch back and forth at will - we have to physically rewire part of the chain to make the switch back and forth. We'll be back to live Olympics tonight in prime time...
