I agree. (Gaming)

Although so far I haven’t heard a problem.

Did Korny just drop fake news?

It's weird. When I upload a clip to Xbox Live, the audio sounds different from what comes out of the screen (does the Xbox capture in Stereo while outputting 5.1? Apparently!).

Recording the screen, however:

Music and radio chatter tends to be the loudest thing, characters sound distant if you're looking right at them, louder when you're turned away, and your weapons sound muffled. Oddly, I don't have this issue in Cru- wow. Multiplayer matches.
Only Reach has had this issue.

Based on what you’re describing, it sounds to me like the Center audio channel is straight-up missing from certain audio elements (specifically character dialogue). If the video capture is pulling a stereo version of the audio rather than 5.1, that would explain the difference.
