So I recently bought myself a nice Dolby Atmos setup, with fronts, surrounds, sub and height channels. I also got the Sony DN-1080 receiver with support for the format. However, once I plugged my HDD into the LG C8 OLED TV and tried to play off a file with Dolby TrueHD (an Atmos-enabled format), the TV essentially told me there was no such support, and changed to a non-Atmos audio file. I was disheartened to say the least.
Now with Vero 4K+, I see that it supports Dolby TrueHD. What a relief. But… how do I actually go about using this device? It has 16GB internal memory, I presume mainly for the Linux based OS itself. My 4K HDR files with Atmos soundtracks, usually border close to 60-70GB in size. So I reckon I would need to connect an external HDD, right?
My question is thus. A) With the Vero4K+ having USB 2.0 (60 MBps limit) ports rather than USB 3.0 (640MBps limit), will all 4K HDR bandwidth be covered? I’ve seen some REMUX copies of BluRays where the bit rate is 67 MBps, which would theoretically be above the specification limits of USB 2.0. And B) Will you be able to play 4K HDR w/ Dolby Atmos through the external HDD, by using the HDMI 2.0 port of the Vero4K+, feeding it to a HDMI-ARC port of the Atmos-enabled receiver? Is it really that easy?
What alternative is there? Is streaming through Gigabit-ethernet the only way? If so, I’m stuck, because I don’t get fiber and my connection is fairly limited at where I reside. Thanks for any help guys!
