Telstra TV no 5.1 audio output

I have read on forums and on the Netflix website that the Telstra Tv supports 5.1 audio for Netflix but no matter what I try I am unable to get 5.1.  I have connected the Telsta Tv via HDMI to my Yamaha AV Receiver which supports Dolby Digital and DTS but can still only get stereo sound.  I have played with settings on the amp and the Telstra Tv and still no luck.


I have tried everything suggested in forums.  The streaming and video all work fine and I love the simplicity of the Telsra Tv.  I just need 5.1 audio for my home theatre set up.


Is it possible to return the Telstra Tv for a new one?  I just noticed that there is a new Telstra Tv box.  As I am on the $99 plan is it possible to swap my current Telstra Tv unit for a new one?


5.1 works fine when I connect my laptop

Re: Telstra TV no 5.1 audio output

Can you confirm which version of the Telstra TV you have? Can you also go into the Audio Settings on your Telstra TV and advise what options have been selected?
