Yes, my problems were only when the main program, CSI:Miami was running. I noticed it'd drop to 2.0 on the commercials (which were fine to listen to), but as soon as the show came back on, the sound would pop between 5.1 and 2.0 every couple of seconds until the next commercial came back on.
We, and you viewers, haven't seen a problem with any other 5.1 (audio) programming.
I.E. Football, NCAA Basketball, Golf, etc.
If I recall correctly, when they first started doing the metadata testing on the sporting events, the same problem existed, but has since been fixed.
CSI: Miami was the first attempt at 5.1 in anything other than sporting events.
I'm sure the engineering types at CBS are aware of the problem, and will have a solution as we continue to roll out 5.1 programming.
As it sits, Miami is the only one that will be in 5.1 for the forseeable future.
I'm thinking it might be similiar to NBC's problems, the recievers having a problem with the metadata.
