Netflix question

Does Netflix output Dolby or DTS audio when streaming? If so, will a basic Roamio detect and output it to an A/V receiver?

Some Netflix titles have Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 sound. I know that TiVos will bitstream that over HDMI but I'm not certain whether they will convert it to basic DD 5.1 for output over S/PDIF or to AVRs which can't decode DD+. Since TiVo has to license Dolby tech they probably do.

There's no filter or even indication on Netflix's site of which titles have DD+ sound; there are some Netflix search sites which do have filters for 5.1, such as TVandMoviesNow.com (that link has the 5.1 filter on it).

if the title is listed as 5.1, then it should be in DD+. At least that is how it has always worked on any title I've watched. Every title I've viewed that is in 5.1 audio, uses the DD+ codec.
