Good day all,
Ralph, thanks for the wonderful work you do with your reviews, they are very insightful and have helped me build a nice movie collection at home.
Given your access to disc media, I was wondering if you have come across the March 2018 UHD demo disc from Dolby? This disc features both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos demos. I happened to get my hand on one, and unfortunately, it does not work well with my setup. I'll explain...
As you can see from my signature below, on the audio side, my gear is well equipped for Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. Video wise I can also view 4k HDR10 content, however not Dolby Vision. Typically this would not be a problem since most discs include an HDR10 track which pairs well with Atmos and DTS:X. However, for some reason, this particular demo disc when played gives me an audible message claiming that I'm listening to the alternative audio track and need to set my UHD player to Bitstream and use an HDMI connection (both of which are already in place). On the video side, the disc displays the content but adds a text overlay which reads the same message about needing to set up the UHD player properly. I can understand the Dolby Vision part not working properly since my gear does not support DV, however, I don't understand why the Atmos audio would not play properly. I have other Dolby Atmos demo disc (Blu-ray versions) which work as they should. Not sure why this UHD version presents this issue.
So I'm wondering if this is something you may have come across yourself, or heard of prior to this message?
