    Here in Minneapolis, they did the "Previously On" in 4:3 and stereo. Then, when the show itself began, they shifted the video to HD, but kept the sound in stereo for at least the first 20 minutes--but it was the left & right of the 5.1 mix, so no center channel and thus no audible dialog.

    I hope this is just a local glitch, so BitTorrent will have the good stuff tomorrow...

    Yes, it happens here regularly, just on ABC too. The real crime is why they don't use the L and R speakers for dialog, so there is not even stereo to this 5.1 audio. Actually, they lose speakers ALL THE TIME, you only notice when it is the center one! Don't know why, but ABC is far worse. I have checked the SD broadcast, it has audio. Your torrents should be ok, unless made there... Seems to be a local station thing usually.

    Oh, when that happens, turn on captions from the TIVO menu, not the TV, and enjoy the show.
