Netflix has now finally acknowledged the issue and says in a statement to
- “We hope to have the fix out soon, but I can’t commit to a date. We have put a workaround in place that will playback titles in stereo instead of Dolby Digital 5.1.”

It is unclear if Apple has to issue a software update for Apple TV or if Netflix can fix the issue at their end without an update. No date for a fix has been provided.
