Ok, AVS is so big it can be hard to search and clear a way for information.
I have a Denon X4400h and will soon be putting ceiling speakers in for a 7.2.4 setup. I have an Epson 5040UB projector that is HDR compatible but only at 24/30Hz, it cannot do 60Hz. I have an AppleTV, and PS4.
I also have an HTPC that I use for games, that has an i5-9600k, 2080ti, DDR4-3200 Ram and SSDs.
I am content with using the AppleTV 4K to handle Netflix, Hulu, and all internet streaming stuff. I also have Infuse that I've used for my 4k library (via Plex).
Going down the Atmos path, like many, I want to passthrough audio to my receiver rather than the locked down AppleTV decoding it mysteriously and sending as LPCM. You just don't know what and if it's doing the job correctly.
Leveraging my HTPC I played around with Kodi last night and have gotten the bitstream working beautifully but it cannot tonemap the HDR to SDR. I'd much rather just stick SDR for the time being than being stuck at 24hz for all menu navigation and such.
Is there a player on the market that will simply:
-Play uhd content ripped to .mvk container and with all of the usual codecs whether it be hvec, h.265, h.264, ect.
-Bitstream the audio rather than decode and LPCM multi-channel
-Handle forced sub-titles
-Handle the tone-mapping for HDR content on an SDR display
-Have some sort of movie data scraper that functions like Plex, Kodi, Infuse, ect. Not too picky but bonus points for having trailer support.
