    I have found now that HD broadcast signal gets passed to the receiver as Dolby Digital, however Netflix is Dolby PL as is Bluray. BR is played on a ps3 wired to GTV with HDMI.

    Any suggestions?

    thanks.

    As far as I know, the PS3 is the only Netflix player that has been released to support the 5.1 audio at this time. I imagine they will update the GTV player as well in the future, but based on Netflix support, and the Netflix website, it is only supported on the PS3.

    thanks for the info re netflix. I now have an optical out directly from ps3 to receiver which solves the blu ray problem, hd broadcast is 5.1, and we'll have to wait for web providers to catch up.
