Yes, Scott.... the question was when will Atmos content be available? The answer, officially, from Dolby, is "this fall". Unequivocal.

They do a whole day of demos in two hour slots, so there is no time after one's allotted slot has ended as they need to move on to the next group of attendees.

Current Bluray releases are not Atmos Blurays, for obvious reasons, so they will have DTS tracks if that is the particular studio's usual codec. I don't think you can draw any conclusions from what...
