I am watching the ball game ,on TBS, I noticed that their is a 3rd audio option call "DA DD", does anyone know what this is. I did notice when D showed a pay preview add of a movie, that you an order, the audio went silent. When the game came back the audio was back also.

I just tried that and the ball game went from Dolby Digital to Pro Logic on my Yamaha AV receiver. It is a noticeable drop in the quality of the sound.

I checked in Settings and it does not change DD from ON to OFF in there.

Edit: I just checked TNT and it has it also. Checked, ESPN, SPEED, GOLF, HBO, SHO, STARZ and didn't find any more that had it.
