So I have had the XB1 since launch and I love it but I have always noticed something and have not really seen it brought up much on this forum. I have a DirecTV genie and have it hooked through the XB1 HDMI passthrough to my Denon 1912 receiver. I have the Surround Sound BETA option enabled and 5.1 uncompressed enabled in the xbox settings but ever since day 1 I notice that the 5.1 sound is not legit 5.1 (I know Dolby is not supported yet, maybe this is why). In other words when watching TV through the Xbox all 5 channels work but it doesnt seem like the rear 2 speakers are distinct compared to the front 2. It seems like its almost the same and when I compare it to running the DirecTV straight to my receiver there is a notable difference in distinction of channels. I just wanted to make sure other people notice this too. It could be simply due to the fact that DD isn't yet supported (until they patch it)....thoughts?
