    Was Dolby's plan to restrict non-native upmixing on Atmos implemented?

    Yeah, I think it might be an interesting lawsuit. Can a manufacturer disable a useful feature which was part of their product when it was delivered to the person who paid for the product. As a person buying a product you enter into an implied contract which says, "In exchange for money, you are...

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    Was Dolby's plan to restrict non-native upmixing on Atmos implemented?

    After the initial hubbub in May-June 2018, I don't see much reported about it. That is why I am trying to find out whether it was implemented or not.

    Was Dolby's plan to restrict non-native upmixing on Atmos implemented?

    BTW, I found a DTS Blu-Ray in my collection (Fantastic 4 Rise of the Silver Surfer) and watched it in DTS-X mode and it sounded "fuller" for want of a better term.

Partly because I like to tinker. Partly because I like decent sound. But the one thing I always try to do is...

    Perhaps my language isn't precise. What I am referring to as upmixing is when a source contains a limited number of channels and additional channels are synthesized. If a codec is used to extract the various channels, say 5.1, to their discrete bit streams (or analog channels) it would then be...

    Was Dolby's plan to restrict non-native upmixing on Atmos implemented?

    Actually in reading various blogs, some people claim that DTS-X provides a more engaging height experience from non height enabled content than either Atmos upmixing or Auro upmixing. So I wanted to see for myself what the difference in upmixing 5.1 content to 7.1.4 was. One way to test how...

    Was Dolby's plan to restrict non-native upmixing on Atmos implemented?

    I have a Marantz AV7704, which is up to date firmware wise. I was testing the upmixing capabilities of my new 4 height channels. For source material I was using Xfinity and Avengers Ultron, and then Deadpool 2. Both I believe are Dolby 5.1, at least off of Xfinity. My test was to find action...
