I like banana plugs :-) Moving posts isn't so bad then...
One thing I don't understand... what is the 9.1 vs the Dolby Atmos setting?
I noticed when I did the Dolby Atmos setting, and said I had two ceiling channels, it just plunks them in the center of the ceiling (front to rear). If I say I have 4 ceiling, it shows top front and top rear. There seems to be no options for where to put the ceiling speakers when selecting Dolby Atmos vs. 9.1.
With 9.1, I can choose 2 or 4 height speakers and pick where they go (front, top front, middle, top rear, rear) which is really nice... but what about when I have a Dolby Atmos encoded soundtrack? Will the height speakers get used properly or will I have to go to the Dolby Atmos setting? If I do, will my front and rear height speakers work well enough since they are fixed to top front and top rear? Is there more configurability and I'm missing it somehow?
Lastly - when I use the Dolby Atmos setting, put the height speakers as the ceiling and play music, none of the music options (Dolby Surround, etc.) seem to result in any content coming from the height speakers, they seem silent. I only seem to get sound out of the height speakers with the 9.1 setting.
I browsed this thread a bit trying to find the answers of 9.1 vs Dolby Atmos, etc. but it's a big thread and I didn't find anything particularly insightful (I'm sure I just missed it). Could someone point me to the info or tell me what they know? Thanks!
