Ripper S/W:           Aiseesoft Blu-ray Ripper Version 6.3.52          Profile:   HD Video --> HD MPEG-4 (*.mp4)  Audiio 5.1


Media Server:        Plex Media Server Version                 Advance Preference   5.1 Support Enabled


Media Player:        Roku XD (3050X)                                             Audio Mode:  Set to 5.1 Surround Sound

    Strange others have not experienced this issue or provided any input.  I've seen posts in AVS, Plex, and Roku forums of 5.1 drop outs but not total lack of 5.1 output.  There have been suggestions that the length or quality of HDMI cables or lack of strict adherence to standards in some display devices were at fault but nothing of any certainty.  After troubleshooting and eliminating hardward and software components in my system, I was left with only the Roku.  I've since replaced the Roku 2 with the Roku 3....issue resolved...hope this post helps others who may have experienced this issue.
