About getting 5.1 broadcasts on the SA 8300HD. According to a tech I talked to about this, and he had me do some changes on my box which didn't work, he said a lot of times it is the local affiliate that is not passing the 5.1 signal but is merely transmitting the hi-def program in DD 2.0. I think this is the case because I watched the NFL playoffs AND Superbowl in DD 5.1 (my receiver confirmed this), but the 8-11 PM Monday night CBS broadcasts that declare "In DD 5.1 where available" always defaults to DD 2.0 with prologic processing on my system. I am almost positive it is the local CBS affiliate, KFMB channel 8 that is the culprit.
