Huh? The autoselection code originally written so that DVB
and ATSC streams would be in your primary or secondary language (i.e. in
Belgium you would maybe want Flemish over French and French over

a desired preference for the French, English or Spanish streams.
And if you are or are not blind you will have a preference over
whether you get audio commentary on the what is happening on the
screen. (Although I did watch 20 minutes of a Simpsons episode
before I realized the 'Nature' like description of everything
homer was doing wasn't part of the intended comedy.) BTW ATSC
always carries AC3, and DTS has been seen in the wild for DVB.
