Hi CR,

You guys need to fix surround sound for the episodes. I think it's some kind of encoding issue, or whatever else.

PS3 - No rear channels, stuck on 2.1. Other PS3 apps like VUDU behave fine.

Xbox360 - No rear channels either, other things on the console outputting surround fine so it's not the connection or the equipment

PC - From website, all surround channels outputting the same signal. Motherboard's Dolby Digital Plus is working fine for everything else- Other websites, other apps and programs including VLC, all fine.

It used to be okay. Fixit pls

I don't think the specs matter, but I have it in this thread http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-854987/review-crunchyroll-using-xbox-360-ps3-pc

CR can't fix something that isn't there. Believe it or not, televised anime in Japan is produced with only stereo tracks.

If you have some recent anime DVDs or Blu-rays, you can verify this for yourself by checking the Japanese audio. (The dubs are sometimes remastered to 5.1 audio). About the only 5.1 audio you'll see on anime discs in Japan are for movies and Blu-ray box set remasters.

...Then CR should stop having audio sent the way it is sent. Why do all the other sites and apps behave (and CR did behave a while ago) and CR doesn't? CR doesn't have to be the lone exception that's sticking out like a sore thumb.

If there is no surround then clean the signal so it doesn't get messed up.
