Yup. It either needs an HDMI 2.0a firmware update or you'll have to wait for some other device with HDR capabilities. Also, no lossless pass through support.

The short answer is there will be no 5.1.4 capable receivers that do both Atmos and X object rendering at your price point. You will have to save up and move to something like the...

Don't set anything like that in the TV's menus. It should be an automatic handshake between player and TV. Forcing any other 3D settings than what the player is expecting could cause problems.

The 2D to 3D mode is only for 2D video being "converted" to 3D by the TV itself. You have to go into your player's setup menu and enable 3D disc playback. Then, it should work. However, some...

What kind of budget can you swing? If you want 7.1.4, then you will probably want to look at the Denon 6200 coming this fall. If you can only swing 5.1.4 in your room then the Denon 4200 should do...

I don't think it's overrated. If you can design a theater with similarly voiced speakers all around, that would be ideal for a more seamless sound field. If you absolutely cannot, then you have to...
