If you play an Atmos Bluray on a non-Atmos AVR then you get the 5.1/7.1 soundtrack just as you have always done. If you had height speakers and rear surrounds, you would need to use an upmixer of...

Can you temporarily put those surrounds at ear level, even if you can't keep them there, and see if it makes a difference. I can't believe it is accidental that Dolby put the surrounds at ear level...
