    Well, they did it again didn't they?

    I'm sure it's not my box, but let me know if i'm wrong folks

    last night's premier of Black Hawk Down was not transmitted in Dolby Digital, in fact it was not only in prologic but they transmitted the signal without the dialogue channel -- great effects but not much story line!! I switched to my tv signal through the scart but it was the same.

    i've seen threads about this sort of thing before and the last time thay screwed up was "From Hell" in which the sound kept on dropping out.

    I rang big brother ..sorry Sky this morning and the "technical helpdesk" said they knew nothing about it - so why was there a 20 minute queue at 9.15 last evening on the phone line.

    Sky if it's my box i'm sorry but if it is you guys why dont you ever say the "s" word - you know "sorry"?

    What would be great is if a mole on the sky helpdesk could start posting the real deal on here. "The truth is out there" sky, lets here it from the agents in the call centre.

    Oh just one other thing, i've had a lot of programs i've recorded cutting off early just recently- did everyone get blown to S**t in Monach of the Glen?!!

    They appear to have cocked uo...BHD seems to have been transmitted minus the audio track...it's not your box.

    I was quite enjoying the soundtrack without dialogue - they didn't look as if they were saying anything very profound.

    For those who did not persevere the sound went off altogether for about 30 seconds after about 30 minutes and then came back withn all channels - they probably rebooted the DD gizmo when the complaints started rollin in.
