Hi Mike,

No, they were using the ATSC version.  You can read about it here:

As for the analog audio "issue", you can see the post just above that 
one make mention of it.  As I said, there were a bunch of other posts 
(in several threads) alluding to this, but I saw no evidence whatsoever 
... personally I just think someone just picked up the rumour ball an 
ran with it and others blindly followed suite and preached it as gospel 
..... still, Kaxkid's observation has me scratching my head ... (and I'm 
in no way doubting him, as he has always seemed to be a reliable poster).

--Cheers, CK
