Information about Dolby Digital:
Dolby Digital will now play correctly on Live TV. The adjustment for replay and recording will follow with a fix in January. The fix does not require
new software on the box and can be added as soon as available. We will inform you as soon as this is done.

After watching the Dracula series on BBC1, the difference in sound between live TV (dolby digital) and replay (stereo, upscaled to DD) is very noticeable.
In the announcement above, you say a fix for this is coming in January. Is this still on target?
Replay, or recording, or even just pausing live TV for a few seconds, all currently result in DD being lost.
