I recently received some warranty service work on my UMC-200. I have had one issue since it was returned. I can't get services using the Dolby Digital Plus codec to stream sound properly.
I'm running a Roku 3 through HDMI2. I can't get sound when using Netflix and Amazon Instant Video; both of which use Dolby Digital Plus. The menu display on the UMC-200 says "Dolby D Plus CH: 2/1" even though it should be 3/2. When I use HBO Go I get full 3/2 surround sound. HBO Go doesn't use DD+. If I switch to the Apple TV (3G) Netflix works fine, but on the ATV Netflix doesn't use the DD+ codec. On the Roku I have used suggested audio settings:
- Audio Mode = Auto - HDMI = Auto-Detect
If I switch Audio Mode to Stereo I can hear two channel audio as you would expect.
I have also tried switching from HDMI 2 to HDMI 3 and switching to a different HDMI cable, but this has not resolved the issue.
It feels like I'm missing a setting somewhere, but I can't find what it might be.
I could also swear that audio worked briefly in Amazon Instant Video when I first set up the UMC-200 after it was returned from service, but I can't figure out what I might have done to break that.
Finally, this was all working before the box failed and had to be shipped in for warranty services.

When I had the UMC-200 and had an anomaly, I'd perform a factory reset which I believe is called a "Load Default" in the UMC-200 settings. Just make sure you write down all of your settings as well as the P-EQ settings, as it clears all of these if I'm remembering correctly.

Before you do the factory reset meador make sure any downmix settings are switched off [if the 2/1 is close to accurate?] ; cant remember if they were per codec when I had my umc200 in my system
