So I got maybe my first blu-ray knock off disc 'The Age of Adeline'. In the past I was always able to find the uncompressed digital audio on their discs. But not this time. It was very upsetting. I'm hearing that this will happen more and more. I called and 'put in a complaint', and the tech guy sent me a couple of discs. I told the guy, that likely he can't do anything about it. However I did ask if there was any way to tell if a blu-ray is the 'cut-rate' version or the real version. So we waded through a couple waiting in my queue, and they all say 'Dolby 5.1'. We thought this meant cut-rate. However then after the call, I went back and saw that the 'Marigold Hotel #2' was also marked this way. But that played fine as 'DTS-HD Master'. So unfortunately they are just not marked.
Perhaps this has been quoted and mentioned several times, as I've just become aware of this thread. But Netflix does not always properly track it's bluray audio (so I did not include the link). At least in my experience. For instance the copy of the Marigold Hotel 2 had a Dolby HD Master Audio on it... Yet NetFlix 0nly says: Dolby Digital 5.1
Another question. Why did someone put a title with a 'Dolby Atmos' track in the list. Should I take that out. Someone should. I added the 'Age of Adeline' I was very upset when I found it with no 'Lossless' audio. That was the first one I received from Netflix. I complained to them. And they gave me two extra discs.
I updated list, not many people are updating these lists. I need to know if john wick from red box has atmos?
Isn't the list supposed to track 'Lossy' audio not 'lossless' audio? Like when all that is available on the disc is some 'AC3' tracks. 'Atmos' is a totally new order of 'lossless', and would need a separate category.
