Not one of those titles has an Atmos soundtrack AFAICS. What a total disappointment, especially for those, like me, who are only interested, at this stage, in UHD for its so-called 'premium' package...

And is the HDCP 2.2 automatically converted to HDCP 1.4 so that the HDCP 1.4 PJ can handle it? I thought that HDCP 2.2 was needed throughout the chain in order to play a UHD disc? Or is that just to...

Thanks. When you have them in your hand, would you confirm they do actually have Atmos on the cover? Thanks again.

Thanks. Can you please clarify. You have your K8500 connected to your Denon 6200 and then out to a 1080p PJ, right?

Unless you have a 2015 model (eg my Marantz SR7010). That doesn’t have cross-codec upmixing to begin with.

I was referring to the bugs not the cross-codec upmixing. Denon have released a FW update that has huge problems. It appears that DTS:X only works correctly if one chooses FH+RH as the speaker...

Since the FH+TM implementation has issues with it, you would enjoy better sound by switching to FH+RH anyway, even though your speakers are not in precisely the correct place. My own speakers are...
