Default Roku and Dolby Dig Plus ?

This audio format will not play on my home theater system. (5.1 Audio)

Can someone confirm that this format is NOT backward compatible ?

Does this mean all new equip (again) to support this new audio format ?

Roku support was NO help.

Dolby Digital Plus is used almost exclusively afaik, by Netflix.
You will need a DD+ AVR in the loop for playback in this mode.

If your AVR does not have DD+, the use of Surround Sound modes will of course, derive simulated surround sound playback.

The fact that Roku was no help.... not a big surprise.
