It was a problem 2 years ago, but it was also a problem for BEV at the time when using HDMI.
Now, it never happens.
I have have my HDMI into a 1 into 4 splitter, one out going directly to the tv, the other to my HK receiver for when I want to enjoy a program in surround.
I know BEV had issues with this as well with HDMI, then by the time I migrated to the 9241 it began to get better and eventually disappeared as well.
Sasktel gets, or used to get their programming from BEV, but I don't think there is a link between that and both having issues with multi channel signals over HDMI, it is strange though.
