The info. in the Wiki was incorrect (now Corrected), the Dolby Digital Source icon is not used on the HDR-Fox T2, It was to be used when the broadcaster transmitted Dolby Digital, however Dolby Digital is not broadcast via Freeview in the U.K., instead the HDR-Fox T2 converts the transmitted audio into DD internallyIf that doesn't light up, look no further.
Non that I can think of, apart from the indication that you will get when connected to multi-channel AV ampSo, basically, do we have no reliable way of knowing whether the transmission is in surround sound, other than to peek inside the resulting .ts file streams?
It appears so.I'm not getting any 5.1 from hdr ( blue planet 2 is I believe ? )

Maybe it's a status flag that could be added to the WebIF media browser file listings.
You Could look at the recording stream during recording using the chaseget process employed by DetectAds, I guess it would be best tied into DetectAds since the commercials could be different from the main programme.If you can't rely on the broadcaster stream how can you rely on it ? You can't look at the stream the box is recording because by then it's already encrypted. I guess you could somehow decrypt a small sample and check how many channels it has. Much easier to analyse after the recording is decrypted and display the info in say the programme info after the recording is decrypted. Basically as posted in Lukes post.
