Hi there, I just got off the phone with 2 techs from Samsung who had no idea what I was talking about. I've sent them a message in the mean time and am waiting for a response from a QUALIFIED tech. In the mean time, For some reason the new bd disk player won't output netflix in dd+. It's downconverting it to regular dolby. Before you ask, My AV receiver is more than capable of handling dd+, ( it's a newer Denon AVR 391 ), The stream is Definitely dd+ from the particular title I was trying to stream ( as it worked in dd+ on my roku2 player) and It's of course connected with hdmi cables. The side of the box clearly states it handles dd+. So I have no idea what the problem is. I asked the tech's if only plays blu rays in dd+ but they said no it should have no problem handling it. At which time I argued with them about 1. whether my receiver is capable of handling dd+ ( It Is ) and whether or not Netflix even streams dd+ ( It Does). I've tried tinkiering with the settings to let it bitstream the original signal directly to my AVR to no avail. I'm still just getting boring old Dolby no matter what I do. Which means that this purchase was just 100 dollars I'm tossing out the window, as my ps3 already plays netflix in boring old dolby. ARGH!! Help!

Are you sure your samsung player can do DD+ from Netflix??


On the Netflix menu, under Audio and Subtitles do you see the words "Doby Digital PLUS"??

Yup, It was streaming in the dd+. Triple checked it. In any case, after about 3 hours with techs that gave me answers such as " get an optical cable hdmi won't carry digital signals " to " netflix doesn't stream in dolby digital " I gave up and returned it. Spent an extra 20 bucks, and got a Sony that worked immediately with crystal clear sound and picture. Last time I ever buy a Samsung. Long live Sony.
