Pioneer VSX-S510-S + Chromecast no DD Plus

Hi everyone,
a few weeks ago I bought an Pioneer VSX-S510-S and got an Chromecast Stick.
But somehow I just can't get the Chromecast to give me DDPlus...
I already tried some test-files on my Dreambox with DDPlus Sound --> working (AVR shows DD+)
I tried to stream the same test-file on the Chromecast --> PCM 2.0
I tried a test-file from maxdome (like netflix, in germany) specially to test your DD+ --> PCM 2.0
Tried some movies on maxdome (these were DD+ movies) --> PCM 2.0

Anyone of you here has got an idea whats wrong here?

The AVR can decode DD+, but the Chromecast seems not to recognize it for having DD+ support...
The Chromcast is connected to the AVR and I already tried all HDMI Ports...

I already tried the tips found in this thread:
*** Chromecast Tips *** | Google TV - Android TV Forums
Tip: Pioneer AV receiver - NO surround Sound,
• Press [S.DIRECT] button on your AVR remote and select 'AUTO SURROUND'.
• Press [SIGNAL SEL] button on your AVR remote to switch to Auto /HDMI (not PCM).
• From your AVR - AV Parameter Settings menu set HDMI to [AMP] - NOT [THROUGH] - ( the Audio should come only out of the AVR not the TV).
• You may Press [SB ch] button on your AVR remote and select 'SB ch OFF' (for 5.1 Max) - ('SB ch ON' for 6.1/7.1)
--> the S.Direct is set to Auto Surround
--> Signal Sel: I can't set anything on my receiver as it's already bound to HDMI
--> AV Parameters are set to AMP
--> SB ch is set to: off
(Also tried to switch off CEC etc. and power off everything and power on again...)
But still... I only get PCM (2.0!)...
Does anyone of you know any other thing I could try?

Only Netflix can do DD+ on the Chromecast. Everything else is PCM.
