I am no longer able to get 5.1 audio from either Netflix or Amazon with the express 4K+ 3941X
software 10.5.0 build 4208-cr
everything audio is set to "auto" as it always has been.
it only outputs stereo
netflix doesnt even show the "5.1" in the title description anymore
restarted the express etc
However I plugged in my old 4210x, roku 2
software 10.0.0 build 4209 04
same receiver, same wifi, same cables, same content/titles, same hdmi input and set to auto and I get 5.1 audio again on netflix and amazon
and netflix shows "5.1" in the title description
what has happened?
What audio formats are available when you highlight Settings/Audio/Digital output format/Auto ?
If you dont see "DD+" listed, you wont get 5.1 in NF/Hulu/Prime (and some others) - you may need to adjust settings in your AVR/TV (whatever it is connected to) to obtain 5.1 again.
Otherwise, make sure you havent accidentally enabled Volume modes: during playback of any content, press Options (*)/Volume mode=off

You sir, are a genius! 🙂
Levelling mode had been accidently enabled.
Thank you very much!
