    Watched a few things today.
    Pixar in real life was good.

    Watched the Black Cauldron.
    First time I have seen this movie and it wasn’t very good.
    Watched Iron Man and it was great.

    Now watching Phantom Menace and believe it or not I forgot all about the Jar jar binks stuff.
    And as soon as he came onscreen I remember how awful all of that is.

    I can understand that too, but am glad they didn’t censor Dumbo. And speaking of the package films, Melody Time is uncut on the service.

    I think I already know the answer but haven't seen it mentioned. Do the original Star Wars films have the original FX?

    But apparently Saludos Amigos returned to the cut version. Such an odd mixture

    Good to hear. If only I could say the same for:

    Foolish! That they would do this is
    Unbelievable! That they will not restore it is
    Calamitous! It is
    Killing me that Disney movies still face this

    Desecration. Do you find it
    Irritating? So do I, and it’s
    Stupefying and mind-
    Numbing, not to mention
    Enervating, that this still goes on this
    Year.

    Dolby Atmos question: Is it only available if you’re streaming 4K?

    My Nvidia Shield supports Atmos, but my projector is HD. I tried streaming “Captain Marvel”, which is reported to be in Atmos. But the audio on my system was Dolby Digital +, not Atmos.
    https://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1570449300

    I was hoping that I could enjoy D+ in Atmos on my HD system via the Shield (since my AppleTV HD only supports 5.1).

    Any insights / info much appreciated!

    In fact, superb: I sign up on my iPad and then it automagically linked to my AppleTV 4K.
    Looks spectacular: watched some of The Mandalorian - very impressed.

    When/if is the Fox material going to appear? (Futurama, Simpsons, Family Guy, etc.)

    I'm all 4k (except for my display). So I'm using an Apple 4kTV device routed into my new Denon X3600h with the video ending up displayed on my old Panasonic Plasma. And I get the Atmos audio just fine.

    Peg and I watched their new live-action Lady & the Tramp which did NOT have an Atmos track, but I also sampled Star Wars (episode 4) and the Atmos indicator came up.
