Windows 7: I have 2 simple questions about my htpc with Windows Media Center 7.

I have 2 simple questions about my htpc with Windows Media Center 7.

#1 If I rip all my dvd's as .vob will Windows Media Center 7 stream the bitstream 5.1 audio over hdmi natively with no extra codecs installed, to my Onkyo HT-RC260?

#2 Why when I stream Netflix in 1080p do I see jutter but every other type of HD streaming seems to work fine?

I am streaming Netflix using the wmc plugin but it seems to happen in IE9 too. I use IE9 to stream Netflix because in recent Browser studies it scores the fastest with Silverlight content which is what Netflix uses. I am streaming using a Client bridge over the 5ghz wireless-n band. Downloading files over this connection nets 4032Kbps, so it is fast enough for HD streaming. The Receiver will decode pretty much everything, it is even ready for 9.2 when and if they ever finalize a codec. Specs of the htpc are in my signature.
