Here's my method for ripping TV shows.

I rip using Makemkv. I don't do .iso so this might not be helpful. I just find having individual files easier.

I have no idea about sync. It isn't something I do just stating that it is possible.

The converter doesn't care that DD+ is lossy. It just converts.

You can convert mp3 to flac or wav if you want. There is no sound quality benefit. But if the original format is causing problems...

This power strip is actually triggered instead of sensing. I use 2 on my setup. One for the main zone and one for the 2nd and 3rd zones. They can be configured to trigger on separately in the Denon....

I don't think that you will ever get all spots sounding great. Personally I would just worry about the MLP. Most people won't notice.

So at some point if both Atmos and Auro stick around we should expect AVR's with speaker terminals for all those speakers? Then we can have 5.x.4.4 or something?

If you heard the XT32 and don't think it is worth it then don't jump forward yet. I got the X4000 to try using the "wides" but ended up more impressed with XT32 than anything else. I bet X4000s are...

I can't remember what I had to do and I'm not at home to check but setting up my Logitech remotes was fairly easy. Not that this is any real help but I know that it does work.

Not quite. Bass management will still send to the sub if you have it set up to do so. This is in addition to the .1 info it gets.

I think you may want to try some blind x-over tests to see if...
