Just a heads up, I have discovered that Netflix on Sky Q does not output Dolby 5.1, only Stereo, via optical.

I have a room with a Playbar with surrounds set up directly to a Sky Q Mini and noticed I was not getting 5.1 when viewing Netflix, but native Sky Programs were fine.

On my Beam, connected to the Main Sky box via TV and HDMI ARC both native sky and Netflix are in 5.1

So I moved the beam to a different Mini box and it works via Arc... changed it to optical direct and no 5.1 on Netflix only native sky programs.

Back to the main TV and connected it via optical and same results no 5.1 for Netflix.

I have reported it to Sky, so hopefully they will fix it.

I thought I should post here in case anyone is wondering what is going on.
