I have seen this before, but not recently. Only the rear speaker tracks
were playing. It has happened once or twice with recordings, although
not lately. Previously when it happened I have switched to the other
audio track. At the time there was no audio description so that worked
for me. I suspect something messed up at the broadcast station.
Sometimes it sorted itself out after a commercial break.
