    Fox is broadcasting their football in 5.1 today for those of you with HD capability. Nice touch.

    I'm in D.C., and I'm getting 5.1. I got the info from the display of my Anthem AVM-20.

    If it makes you feel better, it's not really that different than PLII Movie. There's not a ton of directional fx in football.

    Our Fox affiliate in Detroit only broadcasts in DD 2.0, so DPLII was the best I could get (same for the CBS HD broadcast).

    Is ABC planning on a DD5.1 broadcast for the Super Bowl? Our local ABC affiliate does transmit 5.1.

    I'll trade the DD 5.1 for 1080i and DD 2.0 anyday.

    No 5.1 in New York City, but the fly-over sounded pretty amazing even in Pro-Logic (totally freaked my dad out).
    It's amazing how much better CBS' real HD broadcast of the AFC looked than Fox' bogus 480P NFC broadcast.
