For gaming, get a projector. You don't have to spend a lot for a decent 1080p unit. For serious UHD movie watching until true 4k projectors with LED or laser light sources come to pass that aren't...

Dolby Atmos tracks for the home can go to at least 24.1.10 because it uses 3D objects. DTS: X for home use, despite the initial hype, is locked in place at 7.1.4 with no plans for expansion. Any...

It's weird. I'm running front wides and most Atmos discs I've thrown at my Marantz have sounds, music, and occasionally dialog come out of them most of the time.

Why is it "useless" to you? There are English subtitles available. The script was written by an American, if that matters. It's a really good movie.

There are certain apps you cannot move. It's a contractual bit of advertising between the streaming service and Samsung.

I've read that it has the same restrictions governing at least Dolby TrueHD lossless off video files.

I found that the 7702 mk II, at least in the States, was about the same price as the 7010. The 7010 can pass all current HDMI specs (static HDR10, Dolby Vision, Rec 2020, 4k, 3D, etc.). It also can...

Since you will have to wait til the end of this year for a 2017 unit that can handle HDMI 2.1 anyway, which is the next step up on the 4k specification ladder.

It could be that the frayed HDMI cable shorted out part of the board on your player.

Can you take your player to a family member or friend's house and plug it into their HDMI capable receiver?

Have you gone into the player's menu and changed the audio output to HDMI 2? Do you have it set to Bitstream (Unprocessed)? Do you have Dynamic Range Control off?

I too stuck with the 2015 model 7702 mk II. It also has Front Wides.

Time for gear that doesn't make you choose between speaker locations. 11.1.6 would be really cool!
