I have been watching some shows on my system and was wondering why the quality was meh in terms of surround sound when watching TV (ATT box). Today I had on the Incredibles for my girls which I recorded off TV. I noted there was no real oomph with anything during a couple of action scenes. Then it struck me.

I went into the settings to audio and yep, my audio was set to stereo, not surround sound. I made that quick change, hit play again and all the speakers jumped to life. The sub was moving and the surrounds were going.

Let me chalk this up to being a tired parent. Now time to enjoy more shows on TV

I've done that more than once. Hell, I've been so burnt out that I watched and entire movie that way.
