Pioneer VSX-60 No Dolby 5.1 from Netflix

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just finished connecting my new Pioneer VSX-60 AVR with my new Samsung PN60E6500 3D Plazma TV, Samsung BDE6500 Blue-Ray Player, Xbox 360, and my Sonicview 8000HD satellite receiver . THe first 3 units are wireless and connect and stream movies from Netflix effortlessy. The only problem is, none of them will play the movies in the 5.1 Dolby format that Netflix says they are in. They stream nicely in HD, but the sound only comes out in Stereo. The receiver automatically recognizes any Dolby content and will switch perfectly when I play a BR disc, when a show or movie from the satellite is broadcast, even when I use either the Sat receiver or the TV to broadcast over the air TV programs that are in HD Dolby digital from my antenna! Netflix tells me to check with Pioneer, I can't see it being the receivers fault. Any one else out there having a similar problem?

Netflix is installed on the TV, the BD, and the Xbox. The TV is connected to the receiver via HDMI ARC. The BD and Xbox are both connected via HDMI.

After days of back and forth discussions with the chat help support of Netflix, it seems that my high speed internet isn't fast enough to get 5.1 Dolby digital. Although my internet is rated at 7mbps, that is the max I can get and normal speeds that I checked with Speed Test, are around 4.3. Netflix tells me I should have between 6 and 8. That sucks! For some strange reason though last night, I watched 2 movies on Netflix and they both came in in Dolby 5.1, it was quite nice. Maybe all my whining and complaining made Netflix look into the problem? They also gave me another free month of service for the agravation. For $7.99 a month after my freebies, I will probably continue with their service.
