Yeah. This SRS Circle Surround is crap. I had never even heard of it. I read something about how the whole point is to camoflouge it into an analog signal. Apparently, it's not even as good as PLII. ESPN says make sure your receiver has the SRS Circle logo on it. Mine didn't. Does ABC also do this?
My receiver kicks into Dolby Pro Logic II when ESPN comes on, however I have it set up to do that on the TV Input whenever it does not detect DD5.1 or DTS. It sounds alright that way; however, not nearly as good as the DD5.1 on TNT-HD.
