I can't tell you how mad this makes me. I updated my unit from a 100% reliable Denon 5200 to a Marantz SR7010, solely so that I could get the DTS:X update sooner (I was going to wait till October...

I was referring to the bugs not the cross-codec upmixing. Denon have released a FW update that has huge problems. It appears that DTS:X only works correctly if one chooses FH+RH as the speaker...

It doesn’t matter. You buy the unit from Denon, Denon are responsible for ensuring it works properly. How they do that, or what they put inside the unit is none of our business. Getting a unit that...

Well, while I respect GXNnow's views and his posts, I respect the views of Dolby more (so far as insights into Atmos are concerned anyway) and would suggest that no matter how much testing GXMnow has...

Not at all. What Dolby are saying is that when you are limited by your AVR to two pairs of overhead speakers, whether you set those two pairs as FH+RH or TF+TR makes an "indistinguishable" difference...

I suspect this too. By the time this is all sorted, D&M will be on the next year's model release, so the incentive to go back and fix it on earlier years will be limited. As someone with this...

The "indistinguishabilty" which Dolby confirm is only relevant to units which have FH+RH and TF+TR designations. I believe this does not apply to Yamaha who have implemented Atmos differently with...

Since the FH+TM implementation has issues with it, you would enjoy better sound by switching to FH+RH anyway, even though your speakers are not in precisely the correct place. My own speakers are...

It's starting to become very confusing. I believe that I will not be affected (no update here till 3rd March) since I am happy to use FH+RH and since I don't upmix 2ch. As soon as I get the update,...

Thanks for the clarification there Scott. I'd remembered it as just the rear pair of overheads for some reason. As you say, it's way, way worse than that. Fortunately, as FH+RH is functionally the...

To be fair to DTS, if FH+RH are 'indistinguishable' from TF+TR, maybe they just saw no real point in specifying TF+TR as a potential setup. And other AVR manufacturers don't make this distinction...
