I am not aware of any setting in the denon that would be applicable. It simply plays whatever you throw at it. Although you can cycle through various 5.1 to 7.1 conversions by pressing the STD button on the remote. This makes no difference for me though since the denon reports no channels when the netflix app attempts to output 5.1 with either dd or dts enabled.
Do you have all audio outputs enabled in the ps3? (except aac) that's how I have always had it configured, until it became necessary to disable dd and dts for the netflix app. This is with the ps3 set to convert bitstream to linear pcm because the ps3 fat cant output lossless bitstreams from blu-Ray.
Could you try disabling dolby digital and dts on the ps3 and report on what the denon displays?
Could it be that my fat is attempting to output dd+ and failing because the fat can't output dd+?
I know nobody else is reporting dd+ playback, but if the dd+ were wrongly tagged as dd by the netflix app, this could explain it. Granted, this wouldn't explain why other fat owners are reporting the 5.1 working even with dd and dts enabled. Perhaps their receivers don't support dd+ and that is what gets it to work. This denon does support dd+.
Hell, I don't even know if "tagging" is an applicable concept. Are audio tracks tagged with format type over hdmi, or do receivers just analyze the audio stream to figure out what it is?
