Cloud DVR audio is now 5.1

This past Tuesday (5/11), I noticed the firmware on my XG1v4 had been updated to 4.8p9. When I went to play a recording that I know is cloud (Smithsonian HD), the audio was DD+5.1! Before, all cloud recordings were DD2.0. Even some older recordings from over a month ago are also 5.1. I'm not sure if this is a fix for a bug that prevented 5.1 from being passed on, or if it's a new bug itself and passing 2.0 as 5.1.

Unfortunately, I have realized this appears to be a bug. I went to watch a show on Netflix (Sysyphus) that is only 2.0, even on my Roku. It is showing up as 5.1 on X1. It appears that anything that involves streaming (which includes Cloud DVR and IP channels) are being faked to DD+5.1.
