I read articles about this stuff and the jargon is way over my head - but it sounds to me like they want to use the HTPC as a BD player/pre/pro since they said get Atmos decode from Power DVD.

I'm going to run the
Yamaha RX-V667
up the flag pole.

It has HDMI 1.4a and hence ARC.

They sell right around that price. Probably can get a new one for $250 and a used one for $150.

So...

Is your LOOM stable? In other words, does it just LOOM on Youtube and Netflix never LOOMS on 2.0 programs?
