    I got my Samsung SIR-T150 hooked up Monday; Tuesday night I watched NYPD Blue and Philly which I thought would be in 5.1, but I only received a 2.0 signal. Is this because ABC doesn't broadcast in 5.1? Are there any other stations in the area with 5.1 output? Or am I doing something wrong in my decoder setup? Thanks,

    The ABC network broadcasts their HD programming in 5.1..You would have to find out from your local affiliate if they have the equipment intstalled to pass it along to their local viewers...CBS and NBC do not do DD 5.1 at this time..

    Any suggestions on how to find out if my local affiliate broadcasts in 5.1? Will their web site let me know? Is there a phone number to call?

    Most have a web site if you do a search by your locals call letters..Most have e mail addresses and you would want to contact some in engineering...

    Well, I didn't make any changes, but tonight's ABC lineup did come through in 5.1! This pleases me...
