That receiver definitely supports DD+. The manual here confirms that on page 43: http://usa.denon.com/DocumentMaster/US/ ... E_305A.pdf

When I change the roku to "surround" and change say a Netflix hd and DD+ program (I.e. house of cards) to DD+, I lose the signal. This also happens on VUDU and HBO go when trying to watch any program encoded with Dolby Digital.
My Denon amp plays DD, DD true, Dts, etc. perfectly with blu ray and DD with Verizon set top box.
I even had an installer from our local (excellent) sound and video retailer and he could not figure it out. We called roku and denon support and they were no help.
When you say you "lose the signal" do you mean you lose audio, or you lose the picture and audio? Have you tried a different HDMI port and/or a different HDMI cable? Does the display on the front of the Denon indicate that it's receiving the DD+ audio?
