    So, this is what I am seeing in terms of both Roku and Fire TV sticks:

    Roku Premiere:
    4K UHD and HDR10 (reverts to HD when connected to an non-HDR capable UHD display)
    Dolby Atmos (even on my non-HDR display)

    Roku Streaming Stick+:
    4K UHD and HDR10 (did not attempt to connect to my non-HDR capable UHD display)
    Dolby Atmos

    Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K:
    4K UHD and HDR10 (I do not have a DV-capable display to test this on, but 4K UHD did show on my non-HDR UHD display)
    No Dolby Atmos (only DD+ 5.1)

    Cool. I'm going to watch episode II later tonight. I'm going through all of them in order, but I had to sample the OT, and was pretty blown away by those.

    They do … just not from Disney.

    I've seen some of the 16x9 crops of the 1980s/1990s cartoons Disney actually made, and the cropping is pretty obvious. The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh looks especially claustrophobic but much more clear and colorful than the original ABC broadcasts were capable of.

    Atv4K

    This is the same as MA or maybe it’s Amazon Prime but one of the other services also won’t give Atmos unless it’s connected to a 4K tv.

    It can clearly be done as Atv4K with ITunes passes Atmos throug.

    Just check, it's all true. George got us one last time! At least he doesn't yell "Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo".

    Honestly, they should just cut the whole scene at this point if they are so unwilling to go back to the original. Cutting it would actually help the added Jabba scene because both scenes give the same information.

    FWIW, things seem to have stabilized. I am good with all 4 installs; iPad, iPhone, AppleTV HD, AppleTV 4K.

    Not to start rumors or anything, but perhaps the now-proven-false rumor about cutting Dumbo was to distract from yet more changes to Star Wars?

    Which reminds me, has anyone checked the running times on Bedknobs and Broomsticks and Pete's Dragon* yet? The absence of Song of the South is just business as usual, but the passive-aggressive way the studio has treated the two 1970s hybrids irritates me to no end. Uncut versions or no deal.

    *The original was 3 years old when it debuted on video in a shortened-by-a-half-hour version that moved "Candle on the Water" to the opening credits. The in-name-only remake that enabled all the subsequent ones is now 3 years old as they both fly onto Disney+.

    I just started up a new ATV4K, and I am getting Atmos. I bought it for that exact purpose.

    I do not have a 4K TV, but I do have an Atmos capable AVR (Anthem 720) between the ATV and the TV. I did have to update the ATV to the current release before I saw the Atmos/Immersive Audio indication in the Audio/Video menus.

    I think it is possible that they decided not to change Dumbo because of the backlash they were getting.

    I was skeptical, but not shocked that anyone would suggest it; the only reason people believed it was because of the withdrawal of Song of the South and the post-hoc censorship of Fantasia and one or more of the late 1940s package films.

    Are you connected to an AVR then on to the TV?

    Welp I restarted my Atv and now I see the Atmos indicator on the movie descriptions, it wasn’t there before and I now get Atmos.

    Weird.

    This really really needs a Resume feature.
    Maybe something that shows the most recent things you watched.
