Ch. 106, Live From Abbey Road in mono.

I get BOLD ch. 106 on Illico.

Whenever the program Live From Abbey Road is on, my receiver says that the sound is Dolby 2.0 but because the left and right channels are identical, the receiver's DSP creates a center channel by combining the left and right sources. Thus I only get a combined track coming from the center speaker and the main left and right speakers shut down.

If I force the receiver into 2 ch stereo mode, the left and right speakers come back on and the center speaker shuts down, but the sound coming from the now wider sound stage stills sounds mono.

One would expect that this program with it's high musical content would have been distributed in stereo. What gives?
