I'd get a better center speaker. ( I know you don't think speakers are your problem, but I can disagree.)

Mine started giving that option once I plugged in a USB drive. Perhaps the TV has not detected the presence of the USB stick. If it's a stick you've had around for awhile, there might be some...

The VSX-90 has 3 hdcp2.2 hdmi inputs. Do you really expect to have more than 3 devices to connect that require hdcp2.2?

Yes. My only Atmos AVR is the Pioneer VSX-90 5.2.2/7.2, which does not provide for FH (or for TF). Only TM.

I use dipole speakers for top middle and side surrounds in a 5.1.2 Atmos setup. And my "top middle" speakers are actually front height speakers. Sounds good, to me, except I have yet to hear...

The manual for my VSX-90 says that the speaker setup has to have two speakers beyond 5.1: "Any one of top-middle, surround back, or front-wide must be selected." (p. 75 under "About Dolby Atmos")

I don't know why that wouldn't work. (But the only time I tried two centers, a long time ago, it degraded the sound. I gave it up.)

I'm not clear about whether I am getting Dolby Atmos (though it sounds nice). My only Atmos source so far is the Expendables 3 blu-ray, and as I play it, my Sony BDP says it's playing Dolby Atmos. ...
