Thanks so much again
I do not know of any cable, satellite or broadcast signals that are Dolby True-HD or DTS-HD. Those large and uncompressed (lossless) codecs are only available via a Bluray disc & player and usually handled by your AVR. It sounds like with the LG that you can get advanced codecs with an application but only for the native speakers. My guess is that any other format that you send via ARC will be like everything else - - DD+ (Dolby Digital Plus) - which is capable of Dolby Atmos but there is not much content available outside of more expensive streaming sites (PPV - Pay Per View) and Netflix. Again - if you're using ARC to your AVR, I'm not sure how this works. I know with a One Box X/S - the application is loaded on the Xbox and then the HDMI out to your AVR is Dolby Atmos (not via ARC).
And separate question for all...if you can buy the B7P for $200 bucks cheaper than the X900E, you’ll do it?
Boy, that's a personal preference question. Assuming they are the same size set - - it's up to you what you like the most. Either way - make sure you get a solid return policy. Then, if there are problems, you can switch from one to the other. Hope this helps.
