As far as I know, DTS:X works in the same way as Atmos. The sound objects are generated according your configuration. In other words 9.1.2 should work fine. But from my personal experience, I had 7.1.2 first, 7.1.4 is much more immersive and sounds far better than only two height channels. But your question about 9.1.2 indicates to me, that you are using wides. Correct?
If yes, there was a discussion about wides some pages before and I can't say anything about this, because I don't have the space to put wides.
OK, DTS:X update. The current version is 01.05.00 which seems to be the beta. Update takes some time, because after the first reboot, I found that the DSPs were erased and then new programmed. After that another reset. So you should have some patience but this should be no problem.
Below are some screenshots.
Sound is - I want to be careful here - better than Atmos in sense of immersion, liveliness and precision. Especially the highs are in 'The huntsman and the ice queen' better than in any Atmos track I listened before. But this can be also due to the individual soundtrack - we know, every mix is different and there are no standards or guidelines.
Everything worked smooth, the sound quality is stunning and is really a very welcome addition to Atmos and Auro 3D. I hope there will be more disks in the future. In Germany we have only about 8 BDs having DTS:X on it.
If you have questions please let me know. Well done Datasat, thank you.
PS: The only thing I found was that VNC is quite slow. I needed about seven connection attempts until I got a picture. Connection worked but I got no screen.
