mrsmith can't receive DD+ (NOT a "requirement") on his low end Sherwood and instead of blaming Sherwood, it is easier to blame the streaming service(s).
michaelscott IS CORRECT in that there are NO AVR's that will decode DD TrueHD and DTS Master Audio and not DD+ or even DTS High Resolution for that matter.
Worse case scenario is that the DD+ streaming from the Roku 2 XS gets down converted automatically
in the AVR if the AVR does not have the ability to decode DD+ (as is with the Sherwood AVR in use at mrsmiths). If audio cannot be passed via HDMI as in the Sherwood case, then the end user is forced to use digital coax or TosLink to attain DD or DTS.
mrsmiths Sherwood does not have the ability to handle ANY audio via HDMI...period...
