What does DD+ have to do with matrix processing? with my receiver it doesn't matter whether it's DD or DD+ or DTS-MA etc.
If your receiver has a problem with it then you need to set the BD390 to decode it and send out PCM.
And as far as some movies only available in stereo, VUDU has no control over this. This is the same with all providers of VOD. They can only encode what is givem them by the studio. Many times the studios only give them a stereo master to encode and not a multi channel master. But whatever VUDU receives that is what they encode.
You need to talk to the movie studios if you have problems, but it won't change what they do.
The movie studios dictate the rental period, the quality of the master they give them, and whether the title can be in HD or Sd and whether it can be rented, purchased or both. They could give them a crap master or a great one. But either way the VOD providers have no control over any of it. The Studios control all of this.
So don't blame VUDU, blame the movie studios.
