    Lord of the Rings Fellowship of the Ring
    Lord of the Rings Return of the King
    The Matrix

    No, I only go by the specs VUDU lists on their "more info" page, I didn't get on and try it yet (frankly, I am not interested in anything that only plays in stereo). Good to know the quality is there and just their website is wrong.

    I was curious so I looked. I checked a few. All the episodes appear to be in Dolby Digital 5.1. All the 'extras' are in Dolby Digital Stereo.

    I have noticed this issue, but for me it is an inconvenience that I trust will be improved if not totally fixed in the future.

    I will admit, a few times I've started to watch a movie, particularly of the action genre, on Vudu and ended up switching to the blu-ray because the lack of 5.1 was that noticeable, but for the most part, it doesn't bother me for most dramas and/or comedies. The nice thing about this technology is that it is not static and will continue to improve as UV gets more support and bandwidth speeds continue to increase.

    The fact that VUDU is transparent on their quaility is one of the main reasons I prefer them as my IVOD provider of choice.

    I do get and appreciate your point though. I think your average consumer cares much more about video than audio, and so for the IVOD services in general are more geared to mobile devices where quaility isn't a huge factor.
    I have movies from Amazon (12), iTunes (9) and Vudu (435). You can tell which one I prefer and only bought the ones on iTunes and Amazon because they weren't available at Vudu. I have complained over and over with Amazon to give us the audio quality and they keep saying that they will pass it along but it hasn't been done. No, Amazon doesn't give us the audio quality but the movies I have are all in 1080p (but I download to the TiVo and hardly stream with Amazon). iTunes does give both the audio and video quality (both 720p and 1080p) but sometimes it's hard to tell which one your going to get on the device so I try to stay away from them as well for the most part.

    Found this......

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/video/ontv/faq

    Can I watch content with 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound?
    Most of our HD movie rentals and HD TV shows are encoded with 5.1 audio. If you have 5.1 capable equipment and sufficient bandwidth you will be able to enjoy surround sound. If you do not meet the requirements for 5.1 audio, you will receive stereo sound.
    Fair enough. So, if I understand it correctly, one of the below is happening on this series;
    1. Vudu has a 2.0 track on a new release TV show incorrectly
    2. HBO released it 2.0 and all iVoD vendors will be in the same boat
    3. Vudu made a decision to limit this title to 2.0 and Amazon has it in 5.1

    If #3 is the case, I guess the question is if you feel justified in jumping to Amazon Instant instead.

    Best wishes. I agree you should have better audio on this title. Stinks it is 2.0. Hope it gets worked out for you.

    Sincerely,
