Thanks - interesting test results confirm VUDU HD can be played with DD, but its a crap shoot whether it works or not. I tried the 10 minute preview of Contagion and sure enough was stereo. Then I tried a movie from ABC I had recorded on and stored on the network - so it was obvious the Smartapp/toslink would pass 5.1.
So then I searched and found the Pirates and low and behold it was 5.1
Went back to contagion and found the two-minute preview was 5.1 although the 10 minute preview still was not. Bridesmaids was stereo on the 2 minute preview, just like my experience with rental.
Bottom line try out the 2 minute preview on HULU HD before renting or buying if you are interested in getting surround sound
