So I will play with this setting tonight as well and see whats what. Also how did you get your denon to overlay the Sound options on the tv? I can get the main menu on my vizio and I use the Movie Sound button on my harmony but it only shows the sound options on the denon display. thanks!

Image 1. Audio Output on the XB1S is set to "Atmos". Info Screen is up while viewing Blade Runner on Amazon which is in 5.1. In the picture you can see that a 7.1 signal is being sent to the speakers, although the signal is PCM.
(note: the Signal is DTS and ONLY 5.1, or 5 speakers+LFE are active when DTS is selected in Audio Output and NOT Atmos)
Image 2. When Dolby Atmos is Selected (On Netflix) there are nothing available under surround other than Stereo, Atmos, and Multi Channel.
Image 3. Audio Output on the XB1S is set to Atmos and the Info correctly shows it being sent a Dolby Atmos Signal all the way around.
Findings: When Atmos is enabled on the XB1S, I cannot use upmixers on the content, and the signal that is being sent is PCM. The jury is still out on whether it is real 5.1/7.1 or stereo...
Also, (I didn't take an image of this) - When watching a UHD Disc (ie. proper Atmos and not on Netflix), The other upmixers are present on the surround menu including Dolby True HD + Neural:X
Oh and Mark, I am watching on my Xbox, so the surround menu comes up by default when I press the surround "movie" button on the bottom of my remote. If you are watching via ARC it will not come up I don't think. If it still isn't working for you, I would check the Video/Output Settings > Video Conversion as mine is set to "On" and also Video/On Screen Display > Info as mine is set to "On" as well.
And no, I cannot get Netflix to decode the Atmos audio via Netflix/Okja when DTS is selected as the Audio Output on the XB1S.
Hope this helps..somebody! Lol. It certainly hasn't helped me too much as I would like to stick to ONE SETTING and have ALL of my modes available (upmixers, etc). Is that too much to ask!?!!?
