Yes, that's correct. You need TWO PLII decoders, and make sure they're operating in 3.0 output mode (not 5.1), otherwise information is being 'extracted' and possibly sent to non-existent/not...

Apple TV can do 5.1 bit-stream passthrough, but only with regular Dolby Digital AC-3, not with DD+, which is what is required for Atmos.

Slightly off-topic, but still related to PURE DIRECT mode, is that SACD 1-bit DSD (Direct Stream Digital) input via HDMI can be decoded in the pure DSD to analog domain when in Pure Direct mode. No...

Episode I (and maybe Ep II), were only shot on HD-CAM, which is definitely only Rec.709 colour space, not P3. And 3:1:1 sampling to boot! And only 1080 x 1440. AND 8 bit. Thankfully, even "2K"...

With UHD @ 60p you don't need to fear 4:2:0 chroma sampling. I used to think 4:2:2 was the only best way to do chroma, but then I realized that 4:2:2 was really suited to the old interlaced formats....

I think you meant to say "Does anybody know if the RX-A1030 keeps the pure DSD stream native or converts the DSD to PCM first?"

Yes, just select 'Extra Bass' in the setup, and you can have Large Fronts with LFE going to both them and the subwoofer. Bass filtered off from SMALL speakers will also go to both Fronts and Sub.
