My theory is that they leave the 3D with Atmos version to help the sale of the UHD bluray version.

I think most studios either release inferior, not very salable movies with Atmos or save their...

Honestly they are both inferior.

The first thing I did when I received my Platinum version was to mix the Atmos track with my 3D bluray version.

HDMI 2.0a is likely to be of no significance for projectors for quite a while, as they don't have the necessary brightness (or local dimming ability) to support HDR. HDR support is, AFAIK, the only...

I'm not sure about a 4K JVC at Cedia, I think they are closer to deliver laser than 4K and they are unlikely to do both at the same time.

There is no auto switch with the user modes. You have to use a factory mode (standard, cinema, stage) for the PJ to switch automatically to the corresponding 3D mode (standard 3D, cinema 3D, etc).
