You need to change your pre-out setting. Right now you are saying that the Pre-out is top-rear, so it probably won't send that to one of the shared speaker outputs. Did you see the PM I sent you to...

Yes, you can do this. The default by Denon is to use an external amp for one of the Atmos pairs, but this can be overridden. It's not always completely obvious though. You should be able to do...

Well you are probably better off waiting. As far as I recall while following this thread there's been no mention of an upgrade to 2.2. Some people have said that will require some new chip, that it...

I get about 5 days of routine use for the Ultimate. The charger is better than the 890, drop it in and it connects, not finicky at all.

I have had the Ultimate for a while now, and I used to have the 890 for a long time also. First, it's built better, and feels better. I don't know what more hard buttons you could ask for. Aside...

Thanks for pointing that out, I'll check into it. Although it did work fine when played by my Oppo 103.

I'm wondering just what the supposed issue is. If older blu-ray players can pass the...

I downloaded a blu-ray that is 17 minutes of Dolby people talking about Atmos as well as several demos, including a song by Enrique Iglasias. That also played via XBMC just fine. So I'm not sure...

I can play the four demo files via XBMC 13.2 and the Atmos soundtrack is passed just fine. However it cannot handle my mkv rip of TF4. When I choose the TrueHD track it is silent. Why this is the...

The case on the two projectors is similar, perhaps you can swap the two. Then she'll never know.

No, it's been improved throughout the scale with the upgrade. Most people seem happiest at 2 or 3, after that it can appear a bit drastic.

Only use a 50c or 60c for a center if you have some strict limitations in speaker size/placement. They are very weak for centers and require a pretty high crossover, which doesn't work well.
