I'm not talking FH and RH on the walls - but in the 'TF and TR' positions but just designated as front and rear height. I agree that I don't want my overheads to be on the walls either. I find that...

I meant that D&M have their own nomenclature (not used that word for a while :)) as compared with, say, Yamaha who, AIUI, have 'height' and 'overhead' designations which do different things....

Possibly so. But it is backed up by our own evaluations, undertaken before the Dolby guy made his remark, which came to the same conclusion: FH+RH is sonically indistinguishable from TF+TR in our...

A sort of consensus seems to be emerging that a designation of FH+RH will serve all three immersive formats and become a kind of de facto 'standard'. Front pair in front of the MLP, rear pair behind...

Yes, good point. "Positional rendering for home Atmos" is what I ought to have said, and even then, to include batpig's caveat. It's a minefield of semanticism :)

We don't know why D&M decided there should be FH, TF, TM, TR and RH designations. But there is a good reason for their existence - if you were able to play all the pairs at the same time, then it's...

I think the object mixes are better because the mixer has more control, more easily. And that reflects in the experience we have at home - but with just 4 overhead speakers and 7 on the floor, I...

Yes, your interpretation of what I was saying is spot on. By positional rendering, I mean rendering to specific positions, not to assumed positions.

That is one of my concerns too. Or even if they don't go out of business, they can decide to change their model and leave you in the lurch. I've also noticed that movies 'come and go' on some of the...

Why? They are two entirely different things. Example: I can show you two vases I have here. I can assure you they are not identical. However, when you look at them, they are indistinguishable.

We don't know why D&M used those designations. Yamaha, for example, doesn't. Note that Dolby have not said that the designations are identical. They are saying they are "indistinguishable" which is...

I do not follow. Who is suggesting moving the speakers? I thought the discussion was about whether there is any discernible difference between using RH+RH or TF+TR designations in the AVR?

Although positional rendering is part of the Atmos spec, no current mainstream AVR incorporates it.



What is it that you are finding conflicting and/or confusing?

Only solution is to use a video processor then. Or wait for the Oppo. My PJ has vertical and horizontal stretch modes so it wouldn't be a problem for me, but sure, I hear you.
