Streaming Surround Sound (5.1) from Xfinity Through My PC (Mac Book w/5.1 Support enabled)

I wtch On Demand movies through My Mac. I have set up the sound through an M-Audio ProFire 610 giving me 10 output channels. I've set up the MIDI interface so that if I play a DVD, using VLC (as it has the Dolby Codec) I get Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound.Based on this I have a couple questions: 1) Are movies delivered via Streaming On Demand sent with a Dolby Sound track? 2) If the 5.1 sound track is available does it require I have a Codec plugin installed on Safari inorder to take advantage of the stream?
