A lil disappointed, oh well

Double source confirm...

Updated July 16, 2018:Microsoft has reached out to Windows Central to clarify the initial statement reported by CNET was not accurate. For now, Dolby Vision Xbox One support is currently set to be limited to streaming. Here's hoping Dolby Vision disc support makes its debut one day!

Well my Denon receiver finally got its firmware update to allow Dolby Vision and HLG pass through. Now I just need to buy a new tv that will accept Dolby vision.:)

I'm still using a 2002 model Pioneer 5.1 with S-video as it's high end input. Are you guys jealous?

Does one run a splitter from an Xbox to a receiver then and the tv or is it from Xbox to receiver to tv? And does that have any latency/lag issues if one were to run the latter?

What a relief!
2002 pioneers had component video which is better
Not on the low end models. $200 was my max and I got the best with I could at the time.

Latter I believe and you shouldn't notice lag unless you have some processing turned on.

No red,blue and green composite looking jacks?
I got a $399 model that did in 2002 and FWIRC the models below it had them but were lower watts.
NO. Mine doesn't even have s-video in/out after all. :sad:

Anyone go with sound bar systems instead? I am thinking about replacing my Sony soundbar (which included a sub) with a new one that has more bass and punch. Looking at Bose right now, as the Soundbar 300 looks nice, but has no sub. I haven't heard one though.

I would only ever use a soundbar type thing if I didn't have the space for a 5.1 setup.

My brother has a sound bar with a pretty punchy sub in his room and it’s pretty slick. But has told me when he plays games like destiny or anything pvp he goes with his headset to hear footsteps and such, as do I for halo 5.

5.1 in the living room for the Switch and 360, BoTW is just heavenly.

And when i said a 5.1 setup, that would be minimum.

I would if I could have built the house and had all the stuff run behind the walls. We want no wires.
I didn't build my house and ran the wires in the walls. I also ran CAT6 cables to every room in my home too. It certainly can be done. They also have wireless speaker bridges. I don't super recommend them, but they do work.

But wireless speakers still need power to them.

So do sound bars.
Right, but you can't see my soundbar power cord or optical cord, nor the sub cord next to the TV stand. Having a center speaker on the wall with a power cord and 4 more wireless speakers throughout the livingroom with power cords on each one would be a nightmare..

After tweaking it...
Try Gears 4 mp at a decent to loud volume.

Man i thought numerous times that someone walked by and said things it was such a 3d positional type effect and I'm only setup for 7.2 not even using ceiling speakers.

Now my experience is with the 2 Pioneer AVR's i tested...other brand mileage may vary.
