Apparently it was a problem for many and they said it should be fixed. Mine is fixed.

I have an additional New un-used D-Box SRP-230 (4250C) 3-Axis Left&Right - 250Lbs, that I may be willing to sell for dealer cost.

PM if interested.

But otherwise I will be using it for a back up in case one of my current chair D-Box systems break.

Hello, everyone, I'm looking to buy a KCA-T or Kinechain Adapter with Termination at a reasonable cost (below retail). If you have one lying around that you don't foresee a use for, I will gladly pay for it. Thank you.

As the HEMC can only deal with analog 2 channel audio in, I ran into trouble with Apple recently going the "Dolby MAT" way for Atmos streams which my Atlona can't decode. I talked to the Atlona support and they said it's hardware related so no firmware update will help in this case.
So, my question is: How do you get AppleTV 4k Atmos movies into your HEMC?

I'm hoping for a little help. My Series IV stopped working last night. When I power it up, you can hear it turn on and begin to start, but then the green power light does not come on and the controller does not go through its normal start up cycle (board detection, loading library code, etc.) I've tried unplugging the controller and restarting it, but this doesn't fix the problem. Any suggestions short of contacting D-Box? I didn't know if there were any other kind of resets or fixes one can try first. Thanks in advance for any advice or if anyone else has encountered this problem.

Work around that will work.

Apple TV to HDMI splitter

One HDMI to your current processor
One HDMI to a second Dolby MAT capable processor and use the L/R pre outs to 3.5mm

I would call D-BOX for sure.

Otherwise the switch to the HEMC might be worthwhile, if it is in the budget.

Sounds good. But I've yet to find a Dolby MAT capable processor... Could you recommend one?

Would a current year 2019 Denon or Marantz not support the format?

Basically you can use a dedicated AV receiver with pre/outs as the Atmos/DTS X processor and convert to 3.5mm stereo.

I suppose you're right. But isn't there a smaller solution? I think buying a receiver just to get stereo out, seem's a bit too much, I'd say.

Sometimes you got to do what you got to do.

That way you know it will always work.

Another cheap way is to connect a microphone to the 3.5mm jack as well and just have it listen to the audio in your room.

My 340c did something like this a few years back. Basically, the motherboard capacitors went bad, and I had a local bloke replace them for under $10. Your mileage may vary.

Anyone want to place bets on when Endgame debuts?

Or Shazam for that matter?
