Netflix really needs to update the Apple TV app already. It is missing so much other equipment have.
So they are aware of this issue good because I was watching anime and it says it can stream in Dolby Digital 5.1 but all I was getting stereo and never had this issue. Another problem Netflix should worry are subtitles they are lagging in most foreign movies reported them so many times and chatted them about it been over 4 months seems like they do not care.
Subs in anime for netflix are horrendous! Try watching Kite. They literally sub every other sentence. Stick with hulu and crunchyroll for your anime fix.
It would help diagnose the problem if you guys list the version of ATV, where you are (US east coast etc) and whether you are using hdmi or optical. May at least find a common denominator.
Like I mentioned I have zero issue . ATV3 6.1, optical out, USA East coast.
Bro the version of Kite they are streaming sucks it is censored HARDCORE and yes it is a HARDCORE adult anime and that is the point of it if they are afraid of kids seeing animated sex than it is the lazy parents fault not knowing the difference between Anime and Disney.
I am using HDMI I am in the U.S. West Coast.
Netflix specific problem only.

I researched issues before I bought and if I had issues with this I would use the thread on here to downgrade to 5.3. The 6.1 update so far causes stuttering for some, and dolby issue on netflix and/or other media.
Netflix 5.1 audio missing is not a random bug and effects all ATV (7.1) users (at least HDMI). It is a problem with the App and 7.1 compatibility....but he says he has it in home sharing AND netflix. So the bug is random its seems....
Just tried and the Netflix App is still not updated to add back 5.1 audio. Does anyone know if the ATV Netflix App can be updated (like an iOS App) or does it require complete ATV update from 7.1 to 7.2 or 7.1.1 (or even a build update)?
5.1 works fine using AirPlay of Netflix from my iPad so it's definitely the App (as Netflix has said).
