No. Onkyo won't do it. Even knowing this, I bought a 929 (it arrives tomorrow), because I had no intention of suffering through AccuEq having just given up on a Yamaha receiver (RXA 840 Adventage) with its abysmal YPAO calibration.
So, by going to the 929, I gave up HDMI 2.0, HDCP 2.2, and any hope of getting Atmos. In exchange, I hope to have a great sounding receiver. Until the infamous HDMI/no-sound issue on my 2009 TXSR707 stopped the receiver, I was quite happy with the Audyssey calibration. Also, tomorrow I'll find out if my new 929 qualifies for Onkyo's new, free extended warranty (through 12/2018) for receivers built through 2012. I don't know if I should be happy or disappointed if it doesn't. If it was built in 2013 (it's a new unit, so I think that's likely), there's no extended warranty--presumably because they fixed the HDMI issue. OTOH, if it's covered by the warranty, the audio will at some point die.
But, getting back to your question, if you want HDMI 2.0, HDCP 2.2, and Dolby Atmos, you'll need to buy a new Onkyo receiver. And, if you do, you'll be stuck with AccuEQ (which for me was a deal-breaker). If you want to get a receiver with the 929's brand of Audyssey, Denon/Marantz would be the way to go (plan on spending $1400 for an Atmos-enabled Denon X4100--it has HDMI 2.0, but HDCP 2.2).
