If so then how should it connect to my HTIB to support SS? Thanks
No, that isn't what it means, although i don't understand what you mean by "provides. 5.1 channel stereo audio". 5.1 channel and stereo are two different things.
Most TVs with digital audio outputs will send DD 5.1 on programs matching two conditions: (1) the program is acquired by the TV using the set's internal tuner or via its own Internet apps and (2) the program has a DD 5.1 soundtrack. Netflix matches the first condition, but not necessarily the second one. You should be able to determine whether your Netflix app is sending DD 5.1 by looking at your TV's audio input display. See p44 of the manual. You can also post in the owner's thread for your TV. Other owners have likely made that determination. As I said earlier, some Netflix apps support 5.1 while others do not.
