I've just seen the update log for the latest version (6.1.3) of Infuse 6.0 which includes the note:

"- Improved handling of Dolby Audio tracks"

Anyone know exactly what this is, and if there is any implication for Atmos tracks?

Not sure but definitely not yet support Atmos.

My gut instinct is if it fixed the Atmos problem, there'd be a much bigger song and dance about it!

What does all this mean for TrueHD Atmos?

Nothing. TrueHD with Atmos gets converted to flac. Only eac3+Atmos is supported by some players on tvOS. MrMC has stated they might try to convert tracks on the fly but this is basically still just an idea as nothing has materialized I’m code (it might not even be possible).

This article makes it easier to understand what atmos is. It is definitely worth waiting for atv to implement passthrough atmos, if they ever will do it...

It also says that there are good audio tracks where you can't tell, just by listening, whether you are getting Atoms Wink

Atmos via streaming using Digital plus can never match the experience of Atmos via uncompressed True HD. The again not all Atmos tracks on UHD bluray are created equal. Quite a few don't much to a True HD track and IMO added just to warrant the extra cash you have to pay for UHD physical media.

I got an Apple TV to enjoy Atmos on Netflix and what I've experienced so far is marginally better than the Digital plus alone. Maybe someone could suggest something on Netflix which really shines in Atmos?

Also as this thread is to try and convince Apple to allow bit-steaming there is still DTS:X to consider. Not as popular but bloody good!

Try DARK on Netflix.
My receiver switches to DTS:X when it finds a TrueHD Atmos track!

Netflix doesn’t do TrueHD. Nor are you getting DTS:X as it doesn’t do that either. Nor does the ATV. I don't know of any streaming service that does lossless audio or DTS:X

What’s happening is you’re just getting DD or DD+ and your receiver is doing an upconvert with neural X.
Or it could be sending atmos but you have a setting on the receiver set wrong.

Season 1 of Dark was in Atmos - which I watched before I had the ATV. Season 2 is in DD5.1+. My AV switches to DT Neural X (by choice) when it receives PCM from the ATV,

Exactly Smile
I have caused some confusion with my quick short reply, sorry. When I referred to TrueHD Atoms, it was taken in the Netflix context while what I meant was the playback from my own video library; then my receiver switches to DTS Neural:X (and not DTS:X).
