I've asked every MS guy on Twitter and didn't get an answer. Asked someone involved with the Xbox podcast community and they said they're being told that it's not going to be there at launch, but...

The criticism is that a cap exists at all, honestly. The only reason Comcast implemented it was because of streaming services competing with their cable TV interests. They blamed it on...

Naturally, decoding to PCM will sound identical (if the decoding outputs at the same level, though the Xbox One currently doesn't). However, the internal decoding also doesn't change output as...

This was one of the best surprises of the year for me. Absolutely loved the movie. One of the best small sci-fi flicks since Safety Not Guaranteed to me. I love a movie that treats the viewer with...

But for the purposes of Dolby Atmos or DTS:X, those conversions toss away the metadata needed... And degrade the audio quality. For UHD, if the One S doesn't bitstream, it will not be a full-featured...

On the contrary, I loved what they did with the sound design. Most of the movie was just sporadic ambient sound from the heights, but the contrast between those moments and the moments where heights...

I'll be the voice of dissent here. I loved the ending, because to me, it was a very Twilight Zone out-of-the-frying-pan-and-into-the-fire move. And the movie shows the lead character's development...

This is a prickly question, so you'll see both sides of it here. On a technical level, Atmos relies on placement between point sources to represent sounds in 3-D space. This is akin to phantom...

I'm not going to get into your fanboy argument, but for those who care about the actual tech: The Xbox One uses a programmable chip from Tensilica for audio. Processing "more than 5 channels" has...

Watched this in Atmos last night. While it isn't a constant barrage of above-bed-channel sound, the moments where they chose to use those channels were fantastically well done. The car wreck you...

The bigger problem with the Xbox One S as a UHD player is that we don't know if it bitstreams audio. The current hardware doesn't for Blu-ray, so it has me concerned. I asked on Twitter and they...

Posters over at blu-ray.com who have the disc in hand are saying that only the UHD version of the extended cut has Atmos, not the Blu-ray. GRRRRRRR! :mad:
