It's FIVE months later. Just making sure that this is still in the pipeline.

Again, FIVE months later. There have been multiple examples in this thread (and others) and shows continue to be advertised in 5.1 when they're not.

Current examples ...
Chronicles of Narnia (CU+ Download) = 5.1 Sound
Game of Thrones (CU+ Download) = 2.0 Sound (advertised as 5.1)

Night Shift (CU Decoder) = 5.1 Sound
The Queen (CU Decoder) = 2.0 Sound (advertised as 5.1)

This is in the pipeline - not sure of the delivery timeline.

And thanks for your reports - we do send them through to the relevant areas. And thanks for your patience.

Pleasure. It's really odd that it's still happening to such an extent though.

As an aside, the advertising of 5.1 is almost completely missing on the EPG for the main channels (MNet, etc.)
