So they must be specifically DTS 2.0? Most stereo soundtracks are Dolby Digital 2.0 or uncompressed PCM stereo.

I wanted to chime in on this a few days ago when people were discussing the PLIIx Atmos-EX stuff and wides vs. heights.

OK, that's why I was drawing the distinction, because the post you initially quoted (and most of the discussion of "blame") had to do with the cross-codec upmixing limitation.

Denon and Marantz are owned by the same company and are functionally identical in nearly any respect. So it can be assumed any issue like this would be common to both.

No, you should be fine. These older non-network models could only update firmware via serial interface and generally would only have an update if there was a major bug that needed fixing.

I wonder if 7.1.4 vs 5.1.4 is another impacting variable? Correct me if I'm wrong but the tests of Marc's setup were in 5.1.4.

Surely someone with a 7.1.4 setup and the Last Witch Hunter BD can...

You are SOL unfortunately. ARC won't work as it can't pass hi Rez bitstream audio back through.

With a 4k bluray player you'd have dual hdmi outputs to accommodate this but with the Roku4 no dice.
