That's not the point here. It is about the reliability which I counted over 10+ ppl claimed they lost sub connectivity in 47 reviews. Average ratings are meaningless.

Besides, it doesn't work as...

It requires app dev to go extra mile to implement it in the app and possibly need some secret API that is not available to 3rd party. Think how long it took MS to implement it in its own bitstream...

That bitstream option has always been there since day one of Xbox one. I don't see what is new here. Re-encode into DTS or DD is hardly called bitstream.
