Netflix 5.1 Needs DD+ so Soundbar/AVR choices.
I think it is ironic that to receive the venerable 5.1, one has to have DD+ which in Samsung soundbars, the HW-Q60R (according to samsung.com online specs) does NOT have. The HW-Q70R DOES according to them.
So that looks like DD+ is not available in "lower" $500 models. It seems (as far as Samsung is concerned) that DD+ is found w/ATMOS bars.
That puts me OUT OF BUSINESS - it's beyond my budget.
To get Netflix 5.1, now I have to confirm DD+ specs on everything I look at to be a "basic 5.1" surround.
QUESTION: Do all AVR's have DD+?
QUESTION: Any chance of a soundbar with Q60R features with DD+? at the $277 Q60R price?
NOTE: It's a good thing I didn't buy a Q60R, I was on the fence and fortunately procrastinated enough to discover this limitation.
This also means my venerable but functional RCA RT2760 with only the optical input needs upgrading.
QUESTION: Are there any HDMI to Digital Optical DD+ to 5.1 converters w/HDCP 2.2 out there?
