Was wondering if I could get some help from you guys on a problem I've been having with some of my HD channels for a while. I am located in Augusta, GA and my local NBC and CBS affiliates do not broadcast 5.1 sound. My local FOX and ABC stations do have 5.1 available. I know that only some shows are in 5.1, but I'm talking about primetime shows like CSI which state right at the beginning of the show that they are in 5.1. When I view these two channels in the guide, the info bar shows Dolby D only, but on FOX and ABC the info bar says Dolby D5.1. I have tried calling Comcast but the CSR always has me go into the Audio setup menu on my 3412 DVR and goof around with the setting in there, which does not solve the problem. I had this same problem with the 6412 DVR I had previously.
Do you guys think this is a problem with Comcast not passing the correct signal, or is it the local station that is not providing the correct audio feed to Comcast?
I have my 3412 DVR connected to a receiver with coax for audio, and connected to my Samsung HLR5667 with HDMI.
I was thinking of using my TV's built in ATSC tuner to get CBS and NBC over the air to eliminate Comcast and see if a direct feed from the station has the same problem, but I don't have an antenna to connect to my TV.
I have also tuned to NBC and CBS HD channels using my TV's digital cable tuner to eliminate the DVR box from the loop, and I get the saem problem, so I don't think it is a STB issue. Any help on what I could do would be appreciated. sorry for the long post!
