    I use VLC to watch US HD cable programmes, and it has A/52 as one of the audio options on certain files. Other files have 5.1 as the option, which is better? What are the differences?

    Also as a side issue, the larger US LCD's now have ATSC tuner's. Does anyone know if these would decode freeview?.............apparately not see below:-
