    When your Co-Star receives an update, please post & share your experience....
    Btw, try to list the firmware & the App version number.




    Good luck ;)

    sounds good! :) anyone else?



    Does Netflix app bitstream (pass-through) "5.1 Dolby Digital Plus" (5.1DD+) or "5.1 Dolby Digital" (5.1DD)or from HD [5.1] titles?

    if you get a chance could you have a look at this (costar Q&A") post & see what you can help us with - thanks in advance ...

    That was a fast update! It sure seems like support will be better than with the Logitech Revue -:)

    Just installed this update myself, NO DD5.1 from Netflix for me, only audio options are stereo. I have a feeling this maybe a limitation of my TV. What HDMI audio out options are you guys getting, for me only options are Auto and PCM.

    The only options are Auto or PCM. I have mine set to Auto. I am getting DD 5.1 from my stb but I am only getting 2 channel with Netfix.

    Well then I am going to conclude that it is my TV, my STB when set to passthru looses audio regardless of co-star being in line or not. Guess its getting time for a new TV and/or receiver. Sure wish the co-star had optical out, but for $100 I am not going to complain. :)

    After the upgrade, I am able to get 5.1 from my apple tv 2 (jail broken) and play all my files without a problem.

    I am wondering if the Vizio upscales the 720p content when sending it to the tv? Since it links up to the tv at 1080p. Anyone know?
