Usually Sunday nights may be crap too but not last night.

Apple devices use one of two sets of encodings based on Apple's HLS (HTTP Live Streaming) system, with AVC video and HE-AAC stereo/basic DD surround sound; the earlier of the two being deprecated. Anything older than 3 years will likely be using one of two sets of encodings based on VC-1 video and Windows Media Audio stereo sound.
I'm not sure if this is the same issue but found the above posts when searching for info...
My xbox 360 gets a Netflix movie as 5.1 audio but my Sony BDP-N460 blu-ray player doesn't list the same movie as 5.1. Is that normal? Is that Netflix sending different audio to different apps or something? The blu-ray is up to date with updates, I don't know if the apps themselves update on that though. On the xbox I've had to update individual apps multiple times so is it just that the Netflix app on my blu-ray is older?
