Can you go into a bit more detail? I have pretty much the same setup as you (optical to ancient receiver, HDMI to tv) and never had a problem on my insignia or any other brand (sony, panasonic, toshiba, and samsung at least). Are you leaving both the tv and receiver speakers on at the same time? If so, you should turn off the tv sound. I can definitely see how there could be a delay between PCM downmix over HDMI and bitstream from optical, even some lag in what your receiver decodes. So you need to stick with one sound output at a time.
If on the other hand, you're getting a lag between the center channel and the other front channels, then some thing weird is going on in your receiver.
Also realize that netflix is only 2 channel, not 5.1. So any echo effect is probably being artifically produced by your receiver.

Welcome to Community@Inisgnia™!
Actually what mdavej states is very accurate. My advise will be to check on the receiver and setup the delay between speakers when using only 2 channels if you get the echo from your receiver. You may want to try only with the TV sound, see if when hearing with only 2 speakers the echo occurs.

Thanks mdavaj. You hit the nail on the head.
Previously I used to watch Netflix streaming movies through my laptop connected to s-video on my TV. When I installed the WBRDVD and connected the optical output to my Yamaha RX-V800 SS receiver, it auto-detected a digital surround sound stream coming from the Insignia (not exactly sure why), and gave the appearance that Dolby Digital and DTS were available for Netflix streaming with a choice of several surround modes in each. That gave me the impression that Netflix was now streaming in digital surround. I figured they must have upgraded their service at some point. (Something that I never would have noticed using my laptop.)
The sound was always fine with the digital effects switched off. Apparently, my receiver is reproducing some sort of simulated surround sound with varying degrees of success, although mostly failing in this regard. However, a couple of the surround modes do sound decent, and are a much better option than when I used my laptop (which only has a stereo output). Now that I realize that Netflix is still only streaming in stereo, I will just have to set my sights lower for audio, until they one day upgrade to 5.1.
