    Is your AV Receiver HDMI-ARC compatible and is plugged into the HDMI1 (ARC) port on the Sony Internet TV?

    You might have to plug in an optical digital cable from the back of the TV into the AV receiver. Then your set the audio settings to PCM. This will allow your AV Receiver to use the post processing for virtual surround sound. Btw, the current Netflix app on Google TV only supports Stereo not 5.1.

    I have noticed this too. My I have an optical cable running from my Revue to the AVR and I get 5.1 from the Direct TV box. The Netflix app is only 2.0. Bummer. Is there any plans to make the change? I think it would be Netflix that needs to update the app. If I really want 5.1 I just go to my Roku but it would be nice to have it on the Google TV.
