With an Atmos 7.4.2 setup, what are the options when watching DD5.1 sources (e.g. cable)? There's no such thing as Atmos upmixing, I'm stuck with 7.2 options correct?

Right now I have regular 5.2 speakers, then front heights, side heights, rear heights. I think I'll listen to true Atmos material at most once a month. Aren't I losing my front heights with Atmos?

My setup is a hybrid. My speakers can serve Atmos or 11.2, and normally we watch Tivo DVR and use 11.2. I can say the server Atmos since it's not a perfect Atmos setup but I think it will work....

No, but they are two different classes of projectors. It's like comparing a Hyundai with Lexus. I am sure people here can give more professional advice, but if you can afford it go for the 5040UB.

I think my 8802 didn't have any "A" indication either. Only the box did. So no worries there.

If I remember correctly, I had the same problem. I think the unit was set to zone 2 or something. The...

That's about 1,300 hours a year, so a bulb will last about 3 years. A new OEM bulb can be had for $240 (see above), so that's $80 a year. I think that's worth it IMHO.

Is it normal for the Roku to turn itself off? This is third time that I tried to use the Roku and the unit seems to be switched off (need to unplug the power to recycle).

My 2 cents: if you buy a knockoff don't spend $125. You might as well get a genuine bulb. Most knockoffs can be found for $50 or less.

The streaming "app" in the 203 is much, much improved over the 93. In fact, I use it over the Roku Ultra - and I'm sure the Oppo upscales nicely.
