I have a BDP-S370, which dates back to 2010. It works fine apart from the Atmos issue and the outdated streaming software, which Sony won't upgrade with firmware updates.

I had the same problem that I had with The Expendables 3 with TF: AOE when bitstreaming the Atmos track, but it seemed more like the levels during the action/battle scenes were significantly lower or...

Probably nothing, but it likely isn't as simple as "Shown With Atmos Means Blu-Ray With Atmos" release given the scarcity of Atmos titles that have Atmos on their home video releases.

Nope. It's a Disney release, so it's packing DTS. Next Dolby Atmos release is TMNT.

I've been poking around other places and it looks like older players from pre-2013 cannot properly bitstream Dolby Atmos tracks. That won't change without firmware updates, which they aren't likely...

Use Windows Media Player instead. The fancy players are too buggy with 4K content and WMP works fine, based on the tests done with the 750 TI. Also, be sure you have the latest drivers.

More or less, but the 750 TI just has a bit more power behind it and the 750 often has lesser specs such as 1GB of VRAM and no DisplayPort. The 750 TI with DisplayPort is really the logical buy if...

Not worth it. The current gen cards don't work too well with 4K TVs using HDMI. The next gen cards will have full HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.3, so you get full 4K/60FPS connectivity next year.

There is absolutely nothing you can do without installing one of the latest graphics cards. Your integrated GPU isn't even suitable for normal HTPC use.

There are compact GTX 970 cards coming soon that might be a better fit for you since they claim to have HDMI 2.0 and they are second-gen Maxwell which has better 4K decoding and support for h.265.

I switched to PCM and the track seems fine now but I can't say for sure if it's as good as the bitstreamed TrueHD would be.

I just picked up The Expendables 3 and I'm having audio drop outs on the Unrated cut. It happens during action sequences when surround activity should peak or when the sub should be doing it's thing.
