    Can't get Netflix 5.1 Audio on Windows 8.1 App


    All I get from Windows 8 Netflix App is PCM.

    Troubleshooting:

    Old Windows Media Center recorded TV show works.
    - SPDIF out from GTX 960 works
    - HDMI out from GTX 960 passthrough to TV SPDIF works

    Netflix Windows 10 App on WinTablet works.
    - HDMI out from Atom x5-Z8350 works

    This site says it works for Windows 8 App. Is it true?

    I found the solution.

    Under "Languages" for some odd reason, there's:

    English (Stereo) <--- defaulted
    English (Dolby Digital Plus 5.1)
    .
    .
    .

    What a weird category to put this setting. Why would anyone think to look in "Languages" to change a setting like this?
