2ch only audio suprised me when I tried YTTV last year- amazing they haven't upgraded to DD 5.1 yet.
Pic quality and stream quality (no glitches) were excellent, though. I believe the pic quality was better than my OTA tuner viewed at 8ft wide on a JVC RS420.
Good Dolby IIx/DSU receivers can make a multichannel presentation from the 2ch feed, though.
Compared to the abomination of DirecTVNOw, YTTV is how live stream TV ought to be done, other than the 2ch audio aand neverending channel churn/cost/license/carriage issues.
Also amazed they restrict live locals to viewing from your zip code! In 2019!? One of the BIG reasons I tried YTTV was to watch my live locals when I travel/out of town/vacation. Yeah, yeah VPN's and all, but this should be a non issue at this point. Simple fix is to lock your account to a limited # of devices (Phone, a tablet and a laptop or streamer for instance) for viewing all channels anywhere, including your locals.
OTOH, needing to log in coupled with a restricted number of allowed streams pretty much does the job- your login credentials are tied to a zipcode, and the number of simultaneous streams restricts the amount of devices/people who can watch, so what gives?
