Trying to play back my TS recording (from GBPVR) of CSI last night, and got no voices (using AC3 filter, pass through & FFD show passthrough) When turning off passthrough in AC3filter it showed no activity on the center channel.
Same problem when playing back on my Popcornhour (downmix to stereo through RCA )
Ha I saw this too on an inbuilt Panasonic Freeview HD Tuner. Switched from dolby to AAC and all good there. This solution worked for me as I was only watching through the TV anyway, so only needed stereo. Must have had some issues putting the centre channel mix in. Hope I don't have to swap everytime in future though!
Yip I had this too when I went to watch it on the MC last night. Switched it to the 2 channel audio to get around it.

I had the same issue, switching the home theatre on for surround fixed it tho (issue was only present when using stereo setup).
Inciddentally, has anyone noticed TV3 on freeview HD is significantly quieter than all the other channels? Kinda starting to p$^s me off when I have to turnt he volume up when flicking to TV3, then down again when going to any other channel. TV3+1 has no problems with audio.
Yeah, the AC3 sound track is quieter than the AAC for TVC3, and all other channels.
Wish they'd just bump the volume up a little on it.
It's pretty garbage about the center channel - considering TV3 probably get the program delivered with AC3 already in place - wonder if it was a problem with their content provider (unless they get some other 5.1 soundtrack and encode to AC3)
