Now my Netflix on Roku 3 is reverting to stereo!
Over the last few weeks I've been trying to debug a similar audio problem that has started occurring when I watch Netflix on Roku 3. Now when I start Netflix and then start a show it plays back in stereo rather than surround. To fix it I have to go to the Netflix settings menu select reload Netflix and then restart the show which then plays back correctly in surround sound. Then it seems that as long as I stay in the Netflix app any new content I play will output surround sound correctly but if I leave the app and later return it reverts back to stereo and I have to reload the app again. It makes me wonder if the fix they implemented for Samsung has introduced a new bug into my non-Samsung setup. Up until recently it had been working perfectly. In case anyone's wondering, my issue is isolated to netflix. The other Roku apps I've tried produce surround sound without issue and so do all other AVR input sources (blu ray, OTA, etc.). Swapping AVR inputs, HDMI cables and receiver settings has no impact on the problem. Anyone else experiencing this?
