It appears that I may have a setting that is off base.
My layout for Dolby Atmos is:
Assign Mode: 9.1
- Layout: 5ch
– Height Sp: 4ch
- Layout: Front Height + Rear Height (or whatever 2 settings are available that you want to use)
- Pre-out: Height 2 (or Front)
a. Regardless of whether externally powering just the Height 2 speakers or more (eg. using 5CH/7CH) amp, the above AMP ASSIGN would still be used as you only need to identify the speakers being used to expand the AVR from 7CH --> 9CH (ie. the other pre-outs are still hot and will pass a signal as well).
b. If you want to use the same configuration for all three audio formats (ie. Atmos, DTS:X, and Auro 3D), you'll want to use "Front Height + Rear Height."
I have 4 in ceiling speakers above the listing area.
Should I change it to TOP Mount instead of Height ?
Also when playing a Dolby Atmos blu ray disc why is the front panel on the 4200 displaying Blu-Ray True HD + Neu : X , shouldn't it show DOLBY ATMOS ? My BD player is set to Bitstream uncompressed.
Thanks for any info.
