Can anyone tell me which devices utilize the latest Netflix apps that supports 5.1 audio and browsing of the Netflix catalog (like the ps3 or samsung bluray players). I'm looking for a bluray player and dislike Samsung. Thanks.

Currently the PS3 is the *only* device that supports 5.1 from Netflix streaming.

Hopefully that list will grow in the near future.

Thought the samsung app did as well bc the UI looked like the ps3s. In that case I'll probably go with a Sony player, although it looks like they only support Netflix queue in their app, not browsing.

Que only is correct on the Sony's, but picture quality is excellent over wifi at my house.

There was a thread somewhere here on AVS a couple weeks ago that Netflix will be introducing 5.1 for streaming on most platforms very soon.
