Hoping for some help here. I have purchased both HDX and UHD titles on VUDU.
I am using a Samsung BD-F7500 4K Upscaling 3D Wi-Fi Blu-ray Disc Player, HDMI output configured to AUTO. I am using the VUDU app on the Samsung
when I pull up Movie Sound on the AV7702, I get the following Options (when playing a UHD title):
Dolby Digital +
On the VUDU app, its says I purchased a UHD title and highlights HDX. When playing the movie, at the bottom it allows me to pick between HDX and SD only.
So does this mean I am actually getting Dolby Digital Plus for sound not Dolby Atmos?
Is it offering me to upconvert from DD+ to Dolby Atmos?
My AV7702... I have a 7.1 surround system as far as speakers. I dont actually have the 2-4 ceiling speakers nor do I have height surrounds.
My TV is a 1080p set not a 4k set. Its a Panasonic TC-P65VT60.
The reason I ask is that eventually I will be getting an Smyth A16 for headphone surround. My entire collection of bluray and 4k is on VUDU now. I think what VUDU does is the software looks for a downstream 4k TV EDID. So what I think I need to do is the following (If I dont upgrade to a 4k TV);
Change my bluray player to a VUDU UHD compatible device like a Samsung Blu-ray Disc Player UBD-M9500 or Nvidia Shield TV
Connect that to the Smyth A16
Connect A16 to something like this: HD Fury box https://www.hdfury.com/product/integ...60-444-600mhz/
(not sure if this would go in front of or behind the A16 or after the AV7702..in between the AV7702 and the TV)
Connect Fury box to AV7702.
So what I am trying to do is pick off the Dolby Atmos audio feed to go into the A16 for my headphones and then have the Fury box convert the video from 4k to 1080p for the TV.
