Wow. That's right up there with "I know you are but what am I?"
That *5 is NOT referring to Atmos/DTS:X, it's referring to channel-based content
Please point to any
document that shows there's direct native (non-Atmos, non-Neural X) support for FW and FH channels if you are correct. I don't recall ever reading about any direct support for such channels. I think HDMI has a limit of 8 (7.1) analog channels.
Unless something has changed (and I can't find anything on it), I don't see any evidence of this "theoretical" support. I'd love to find out there's new format options so go ahead and show me how I can output to those speakers using direct native encoding. I'd love to try it out.
-- for example, if he were correct, why is there a separate listing for Atmos in the chart?
I'd say it's because the manual is listing ALL POSSIBLE AUDIO CONTENT that could be played and while Atmos is technically layered on top of TrueHD or DD+, it's still important for the user to know which speakers work with it. As to why certain speakers aren't included in TrueHD/DD+/DTS-HD but are included in multi-channel, it's hard to say, but I'd find it easier to believe they forgot to include them than just make up native channels support with no evidence such a thing even exists.
but he's on my ignore list and I have no interest in responding or arguing with his insufferable 10,000 word diatribes.
I don't recall having arguments with you in the past and I liked your home theater system. I did notice you liking put down comments by others so I figured you had some issue along with the "usual suspects" that attacked
me the moment I asked some questions about Atmos after not following the site for several years (apparently if you don't bow down to the King, his followers get quite testy so I can only assume you're one of them). If they or you want to 'ignore' me, that's their option and as far as I'm concerned, their loss. I don't have any of them blocked any longer (it's been years for god's sake). I can't help what or whom you like, but I never had a problem with you. No one can win over everyone as people have different opinions, views and dispositions. Otherwise, the whole world would be a wonderful friendly place. If people want to post things that don't make sense on here, I'm going to call them out on it. Maybe I'm right and maybe I'm wrong (I've been both before) but ignoring other people simply because I don't like their opinions or don't like reading longer posts would be juvenile behavior, IMO. I only block trolls not people with whom I disagree. Having different
opinions is supposed to be the purpose of discussion forums, but all too often all I see are people who want their egos stroked. Sorry. I'm not kissing anyone's butt.
Trust me, I'm correct here
you? I wouldn't trust anyone
anymore, especially when new format or previously unknown features are suddenly invented to explain things. I certainly
wouldn't trust someone who calls my posts insufferable.
