Dolby 5.1 via Optical Out with Google Play Movies?
I posted a day or two ago about this, but no reply yet.
I watched Close Encounters, which I got as a 4k Freebie on Google Play Movies, and while it was in fact in 4k (and looked quite good), I was unable to get Dolby 5.1 sound. I believe I have my setup configured properly, as I get Dolby when available with Netflix and Amazon apps (I have digital optical out from the Sony to an older Onkyo AVR).
Is anybody getting Dolby 5.1 out of Google Play Movies? Theoretically, it is supposed to be there, at least on certain devices. The question is whether or not the Sony 900E series is among those devices.
