Roku 3 - no Dolby Digital from Pandora?

Have a Roku 3 hooked up via HDMI to my Pioneer Elite SC51 receiver which supports all formats (DD, DD+, DTS, DTS-HD, etc.).  When I play Netflix I get Dolby Digital / 5.1 sound fine.  However, playing Pandora outputs in only stereo.  Can anyone explain this?  It sounds terrible and I would love to get Dolby from Pandora if possible via my Roku 3.  Would happily upgrade to a newer model if that is the issue but I wanted to check first to see what the issue might be.  In case it matters I'm on free Pandora account.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Pandora doesn't stream in Dolby digital, only stereo, like most music services.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.
