There are HFR shows at 11am and 11:55. Unless they have two Atmos equipped auditoriums, I don't see how "All HFR's" could be in Atmos. The 5pm, 8pm and 11pm shows are clearly marked Atmos.

Those modules ARE "Atmos-enabled" speakers, as well as the ones that have those modules built in (like the Andrew Jones speakers from Pioneer).

Neo:X is up to 9.1.2 (7.1 plus wides plus heights). Atmos can be 9.1.2 (7.1 plus wides plus heights) or 7.1.4 (7.1 plus two pairs of heights).

DSU only does extraction (like Dolby PLIIz and DTS Neo:X). Auromatic generates reverb/reflections that weren't in the original recording (like Audyssey DSX and Yamaha Cinema DSP modes).

No. DTS-UHD was a temporary name. We will hopefully find out the final name at CES in a few weeks. There's never been any such product as "DTS Ultra".
