Thought I'd mention that I am also getting 5.1 Dolby and DTS on netflix streams. I'm using a Denon 1610. It's possible to simulate 5.1 with different settings with the Denon but this is clearly Dolby and DTS per the receiver. What gives?
I have the denon 1909 and samsung bd when I stream netflix I'm not getting 5.1. shouldn't I be getting it?
Are you serious? The last post before yours in this thread is nearly 20 months old; Netflix 5.1 sound has been available on multiple platforms for quite some time. It's on only a minor subset of titles, but a lot of recent big-sound action titles which can benefit are there. See a list of Netflix titles with available digital 5.1 sound here and a list of devices which can play 5.1 sound from Netflix (sort of ) here.
