When I play back a Netflix movie with DD+ on my bedroom PS3, it displays Dolby Digital on my old JVC receiver, connected via optical.

Dolby Digital and DTS is the best you'll ever get through optical.

My point was it works. I still see people stating that DD+ doesn't work through Netflix.

DD+ and DD are two different things. For whatever reason Sony hasn't enabled DD+/DTS-HD/TrueHD playback outside of Blu-Ray playback. Same goes for 24fps, that could be why there is no 24fps DVD playback.

I understand, but either way my receiver displays "Dolby Digital" from Netflix.

Yes, it should. The DD+ signal is being converted to standard 640k DD. It does this for everyone.

You said you can only get DD+ over HDMI, then you said everyone's posting that they are getting DD+ over optical (I am one that does). I wasn't able to get it to work over HDMI. Go figure.

you are not getting Dolby Digital Plus.over optical.
Dolby Digital Plus is supported by HDMI™ 1.3 and higher, enabling transmission together with high-definition video through a single cable connection.read this page.

My system that supports DD+ (Pioneer KXP-1020) has never said "Dolby Digital +" on the display, through HDMI.

All I know is Dolby Digital works, both on HDMI and optical, and is good enough for me. If I needed anything better I'd go to physical media. The picture quality on Netflix, even HD, isn't enough to justify worrying about whether it's DD or DD+.

Well I just updated the Netflix app on my PS3, and I can confirm that Dolby Digital Plus is being bitstreamed to my receiver. I tested it out with Thor, and it sounds awesome. My Pioneer VSX-33 displays Dolby Digital Plus on it's display.

I just ran across the thread by accident and started reading and wonder if this was an old issue resolved last year or something since all but the last post were 8/11 or before. I just walked over to my receiver and and am getting Netflix DDplus displayed, I use LPCM over HDMI. Pretty sure the little I've used Vudu I got the advertised audio (renting movies).

Hi DRC72, agree. Now hoping Vudu and Amazon will get DD+ as well.

I wonder about VUDU, because my PS3 sends it out as PCM. Could be my PS3 is transcoding the DD+ bitstream to PCM before sending it out to my receiver. Nonetheless some movies sound superb, so I'm guessing it's not Dolby Digital that's being transcoded.

Pretty much gave up using PS3 for streaming video apps. Now using Sony S590 for Netflix, Vudu (both DD+) and Amazon (DD).

All in all I think the PS3 does a nice job streaming Netflix, and VUDU. Don't really have a need for Amazon's new service.
