Streaming Netflix 5.1 audio
Hey everyone, I've spent about an hour googling and searching AVS without luck on this issue, was hoping someone out there might have some ideas.
I'm trying to stream Netflix with 5.1 audio. Regular stereo works fine. I have two options to access Netflix, a Vizio Co-star and my Samsung BD-5800 player. Both are connected to HDMI on my Denon 1912 AVR then via HDMI to my LG TV. When streaming 5.1 content, the Denon says it is receiving PCM 2.0 stereo.
On the BD-5800, My options for audio out are PCM and Bitstream. Neither option changes how the Denon "sees" the audio input. Of note, I can get 5.1 out of the BD5800 if I'm playing a Bluray disc.
On the Vizio Co-star, my options for audio out are PCM and Auto. Again, Neither option changes how the Denon sees the audio input and it reports that it is receiving PCM 2.0 regardless.
I tried switching HDMI ports without success. I've also tried tinkering with the Denon settings. I have it set to Auto surround on and then cycled through the input mode from Auto to PCM to DTS, but still no luck. If I change to DTS, it tries to force the audio into Dolby, but no sound actually comes out and on the audio input it says the audio is "unknown"
Thanks in advance for any help and suggestions.
