"5.1 surround sound on the news?"
"BTW where was the NASCAR HD on Sunday?"
The Master Control operator didn't know NASCAR was in widescreen (it's not HD). BTW, we have a replacement HD receiver coming. We have had problems with it dropping out, and also can't do 5.1 with it right now.
As for news in 5.1..........The new board has the capability. We are discussing it, and I think 5.1 would work well for news. Of course, most things would still be mono and stereo. Surrounds are better when used sparingly, for effect. I think I mentioned more about this earlier in this thread.
