Re: "audio descriptio

I started experiencing this recently too and found your question posted here in my search for an answer. I then found a support article in the uverse help section:
Apparently they use "Spanish" on my box to represent the SAP audio track, but setting my box to "English" still didn't solve it for the show we were watching, so I followed the "Setting alternate language preferences for select shows" method of clicking the Zoom button, then selecting Audio Language, and sure enough, it was set as Spanish, once I selected English, the annoying scene descriptions went away. Note that once we stopped watching the recorded show, then went back to it later, we had to once again select "English" using the Zoom button, so it didn't seem to persist for a single recording.
I think it must be some kind of bug with their system that caused this to just start showing up by default, and that it doesn't remember the selection for a recording.
Hope this helps, and I hope they address these bugs as it's rather annoying.
