    Since the demise of Blockbuster I've found that most online services output only stereo?

    Blinkbox has a great catalogue but only offers 2 channel stereo.

    I believe Lovefilm instant may offer 5.1 but find their catalogue somewhat limited.

    Is there an online service that I'm missing as I feel my Yamaha ysp-2200 audio support is being wasted.

    I mainly use the ps3 for streaming services, blinkbox Now Tv.

    Does anyone still use Lovefilm bluray rental service or is there a better non-subscription one?

    From memory does XBMC support the hd audio formats if it's many plug ins? I've remember seeing it once at a friends house but I'm after a legal service!

    I don't think any of the streaming services offer the HD audio formats. They would use too much bandwidth.

    The best you will get is Dolby digital +(640 Kbps) via Netflix.

    There's like only 4 Netflix threads on this page, adverts on TV & the internet everywhere you look :facepalm:

    p.s I'm after a next gen console- I've seen the Wii U instore today- is there nothing else available? I can't help but feel I'm missing one or two :laugh:;)

    I'm starting to feel sympathy for some of these posters now - it's too easy ;)
