Will it be possible to use the new NODE for Dolby Digital surround sound?

    Glad to hear you're interested! At release, the new NODE will not have support for Dolby content over HDMI - 2.1 ch PCM Stereo only - so it will not be able to work in that setup as intended.

    That being said I can pass this forward as a feature request to our BluOS dev lab for future consideration.

    I did not see this post before, so I ended up opening a zendesk case (#235588) with more or less the same question. It turns out you get a different answer depending on who you ask.
    I got this response, which pretty much killed my hope of ever being able to use my node for surround: "The Node N130 is not Dolby certified and will probably not be a product that will be certified in future."
    But if there's a chance it will happen that's good to hear.
