OK - I tested it and it is all the way I described earlier.

This is the lengthier scene I mentioned where the dialog is in Chinese - it is timecode 1.07.18. As you can see, the subtitles are on...

On that basis, I can tell...

+1 to all points. I too am waiting until the 2016 models before considering an AVR swap. The last year or two have been hugely transitional, with 3D immersive audio, 4K, HDCP 2.2 and HDMI 2 all...
