Lorenzol I'm getting 5.1 on Netflix through my ATV 3 in case you weren't aware of it. It seems that they have finally fixed the issue.

Paulo I spoke with someone at Netflix and they assured me that the problem with DD5.1 is Netflix and NOT Apples'.

I have an ATV2 with the latest FW and still no DD5.1.

Riko Looks like 6.1.1 firmware now has the same bug for me. I don't get Dolby through Netflix anymore. It works when streaming from my iPad or iphone to ATV3. Here's hoping for a permanent fix soon!

expressmoria New firmware 6.1.1 has been released by Apple that should fix the Netflix audio problem.

I have not yet downloaded this new release to my ATV 3 so not sure if Dolby Digital 5.1 is now working.

blueroomelectro Yep, you lose Dolby 5.1 on Netflix. Hope Apple fixes it in the next release.

ATV3 update loses Netflix SuperHD

Anyone else experiencing this since the last Apple TV update to version 6.1 recently?

Shows that used to have the SuperHD tag, now are tagged 'HD", eg Everybody Loves Raymond.

The odd thing, is that the Netflix app built into my ST60 Viera, still displays the SuperHD tag and the PQ from it is noticeably superior to the same show thru the ATV3.

There is talk on the Apple forum about a loss of DD with this update, but I'm only running 2 channel so I can't comment on it.

Apple TV Latest Firmware Issues (With NetFlix)

Since the last Apple TV update 6.1 it appears that Netflix is only outputting stereo for movies and shows that should be in Dolby Digital 5.1

I have confirmed this behavior on my Apple TV 3.

From reading various Apple TV discussion forums this problem has been reported by many users and Netflix or Apple are trying to fix it.

If you have another streaming box like Roku or a PS3 you can verify that his Netflix problem is only related to Apple TV since those devices correctly output DD 5.1 audio.
