I recently signed up for the free trial on Netflix, and I have 2 devices that I watch on: a new Xbox and a Vizio 420i-A0.
I notice when I choose a movie on the Xbox, it indicates on the menu before I watch it that its 5.1. However on the Vizio, it does not even list its 5.1. is this the limitation of the device? Does the app need an update or the tv, if there is one?
Also from Netflix's website, it indicates that on Vizio tv's the resolution is 720P, although I cannot confirm that because my Vizio does not offer info on the screen when using apps.
I could not find info for the resolution on the Xbox, but my TV says its 1080P. Anyone know? Is it truly1080P?
On a side note, I notice picture qualiity a little better on the Vizio than on the Xbox.
Also I have been trying out Hulu and I do get 5.1 on the Vizio, and the picture looks a little better than Netflix.
