I have the marantz 6012 and found a workaround that works great. Using Zone 2 will kick out of of atmos.

Use the RCA pre-outs on the back of your receiver for the front left, right, and center channels. Use RCA Y-cables and then stereo connection into your HEMC. I can send pics or drawing if you need help.

With this method my HEMC reads the movie right away and atmos remains.

That's awesome! If you don't mind, could you send me a pic, so I can do the exact same thing. I only have a one of these https://www.homedepot.ca/product/com...ack/1000724189

Get one of these as well. Put this cord into the left and right fronts. And put your cord into the female end of this and the center channel (with respective colors matching) and then stereo end into the HEMC

Thank you so much! I will try that out. I wanted to watch Godzilla: KOTM in D-BOX and Atmos, but couldn't get past the stereo sound.
