Default No Dolby Digital Netflix or Vudu Through Roku

I have a Yamaha TSR7790 receiver with a Blu-Ray player on HDMI1, Directv on HDMI2 and a Roku Premiere+ on HDMI3 inputs and one HDMI output to tv. The Blu-ray and Directv both are processing Dolby Digital and the Roku is processing PCM. I have checked the settings on the Roku and and I have it set to output Dolby/DTS. Am I missing something? What else can I check? Is it possible the receiver has separate output processing per input?

With having both HDMI ARC on TV and your Receiver, you should be using that using an HDMI cable. There are settings on your receiver and Roku to use ARC.

If not using ARC for both picture and DD sound between the 2, then you will need to use a separate optical cable from the TV to the receiver to get DD, using Roku.

I hope this helps. Using the ARC Connections between the 2 is nicer, IMO.

I see your Yamaha has 4K upscaling. If you don't have turned on, go into your AVR and try and find. My Denon had factory setting turned off.

My Denon has factory specific upscaling specs. The picture upscaling does work with my 4k TV and do see a difference in picture sharpness from 1080i feed from cable company into 4K AVR out to HDMI ARC connection[s]

Thank you for your input. It turns out I had "volume leveling" (dynamic range) on and that prevents the Roku from seeing anything but PCM. I turned it off and I now have Dolby Digital+ back.
