Likewise, glad you were in town and had time to get together. Always a pleasure to talk movies and home theatre with fellow enthusiasts!

1)We are working on an Atmos update for the RS20i

It's not so much that we don't intend to update it, as there is no feasible way to do so (short of a miraculous new DSP that fits into the existing hardware). The RS20i began its development cycle...

I don't know what you're using as your processor, but can you also use an array for the surround height channel? That would be optimal, for each speaker to have a corresponding height speaker.

I said "no" in the poll, but I guess there should be a "within reason" caveat to my vote. We live in an apartment, and my home theatre setup predated our relationship (she moved in when we got...

Dolby is an American company. Headquartered in San Francisco (but with offices all over the world), and publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange.

FWIW, DTS is also American, based in...

I don't know for sure. Does Screen 8 have a Doremi server by chance? The Doremi servers can decode Auro in the media block and hand it off to the processor as discrete LPCM.

Interesting. I did not know that. Wouldn't you still need DTS support on the playback side to roll out a hypothetical 11.1 DTS-HD MA Blu Ray disc though? Your AVR would need to know where all the...

I think that would be an excellent solution. I'm only speculating here, but it could be that DTS was resistant to adapting their encoder to adopt what is really a competing format. Especially since...

Good question. I would expect in that case the Atmos decoder will be working, but things may sound odd with the renderer assuming overhead speakers that then don't play anything. Also I wonder if in...

It is not the case. If you don't have any height speakers (whether actual overheads or Dolby-enabled speakers) then the processor will simply decode the Dolby TrueHD 7.1 soundtrack. It does not apply...
