Same question for DTS:X? I am thinking DTS Neural:X
Also, is there an indicator on the AVR that tells me it is playing actual ATMOS or DTS:X (so I know I have it set to the correct sound mode).
I have been reading about these formats today and am thinking that maybe I am not setting the sound mode correctly to get ATMOS or DTS:X when it is available on the Blu Ray.
My 920 auto switches to the right sound mode: Atmos or DTS:X depending on the 3D audio in the source.
For non 3D audio, it switches to the correct mode such as DTS-HD MSTR, TrueHD, DD, etc.
There might be an easier way... but there are a few buttons on the remote:. Movie, music, and game. gives you the ability to set your preferred sound modes for either movies, or music, or console games.
For non-3D audio for movies, just keep pressing the movies button to cycle thru the modes... You will have both DTS Neural X and Dolby Surr upmixers available... So select one of the upmixers and the receiver remembers what you selected. The next time you play non-3D audio.
If you truly have DTS X or Atmos content playing, and assuming you're receiver is set up properly, then press the info button on the remote control and the front panel should display either DTS X or Atmos.
also, you can press movie button to cycle through the modes, you should see that it is on the appropriate 3D audio mode. DTS X neural and Dolby surround are not available as options when the receiver receives 3D audio.
