    My rx-v2500 will detect 5 channels when playing a blu-ray or dvd disk. It will also detect 5 channels from an on-line network channel from my OTA tv antenna. I had an old roku box that I believe was limited to just 2 channel stereo. Has anyone here got their "older" AVR rcvr to detect 5 channels from any new streaming devices? I am using the optical output on the roku box connected to one of the optical inputs on the 2500.

    The two Roku express's I have are both connected via HDMI. One is connected to a Yamaha HT receiver. The other is connected to am Emotiva pre/pro. On some of the channels I had to manually select 5.1 for audio. At $30 the Roku Express is IMO a great buy.
