Is anyone getting any audio from the .1 feed of the 5.1 in Alias tonight? I haven't gotten any audio from it for two weeks now. I called my local affiliate and they say everything is operating correctly. I get the 5 part of the 5.1.
hated the fight scene. I don't understand how she can kick the crap out of 250 pound guys but can not take the 130 pound room mate. I think it was a little to inconsistent. I did like the ending though, If you are guessing then you will be back next year.
All of the channels are full range, so you can get the same effect without the LFE channel.
Ask the people who had the LFE bug with the onkyo receiver if you can get the same effect without the LFE. (search the forums for this topic)
I originally had my setup incorrect in which I didn't have the .1 of the 5.1. When I got it setup correctly there is a big difference. Yes, you still get bass out of the Subwoofer if the .1 is not pushing, but it's definitely different. To verify just watch the opening scene of Star Wars AOTC without the .1 then watch it with it.
I didn't say you _would_. I said you _can_. Certainly if there is a .1 channel that gets dropped somewhere in the distribution chain, you will be missing all of the information that was in that channel. And certainly if your receiver has poor bass management, it will not sound as good.
But the absence of a .1 channel does not _necessarily_ mean that the program will lack bass or that the sub-woofer will be inactive. It _can_ be just as good without the .1 channel.
