I set up a AVR-X4500H this week in my basement setup. I went from a 7.1 setup to a 7.1.4 setup. I'm only using the internal amplifiers for the ceiling speaker for now. I'll test later to see if the internal amp sound as good as my external Rotel Class-d amps.
I have almost everything going, except Atmos from my Sony 4k player (no model on the front). That source seems to send Atmos (see pic), but it shows up on the Denon as PCM. The Denon sends out to all 4 ceiling speakers, but it is not Atmos, just some fill sound.
When I play a BluRay from my Oppo BDP-95, I get Atmos. I've tested with several 4k packages that have Atmos on both the blue ray and 4k versions - like The Matrix and John Wick 2. Atmos on the classic helicopter scene is really fun!
I tried the blue ray version of The Matrix in the 4k Sony player, but still no Atmos.
For troubleshooting so far, I started by updating the firmware on bot the Denon and Sony. I looked at the setup on the Sony and the audio is set to "auto". The options are auto and PCM.
I have a phylips 4k player on my upstairs TV. I can try that, but I'd rather just get the Sony going.
