    2.2 Aspect Ratio

    Still not sure why K would report 2.2 and 2.0 movies as 1.85. I have to go through some craziness to get my Lumagen to get the correct AR for that content. K has a specific component in their control system to report aspect ratio, but even though they know the correct AR, they report incorrectly...

    Watching movies while downloading?

    Does it do this behavior when your not downloading? If not, might be network traffic.

    Signal loss between end of playback and OSD

    I also noticed that a few times and started stopping the movie before the credits end. Doesn’t seem to happen all the time. SJ

    You can go into the video setup web GUI and see what the Strato is reporting.... SJ

    Latest KoS Version & Changelog?

    Wonder if they can just have a change/version log on their website. Lots of companies do this... SJ

    Latest KoS Version & Changelog?

    My system updated and came back and told me it restored movies from a failed drive. But the drive was replaced months ago. I had already done the restoration. Strange. SJ

    Movie Updates

    Been mentioned before, but it’s 2021 so... At some point would be nice to have an Update All button like we have for Buy All. Even better, selectable feature that lets you auto update any movie title and send me an email letting me know or a notification through the app.

    World's First SONY Crystal LED powered by Kaleidescape si going up as we speak at the Blofeld Clone PH

    How are you handling Dolby Atmos with the two center front speakers with the Trinnov? In your document, it states C X-OVER Bm. I believe that Trinnov has specific recommendations for this layout. Thanks. SJ

    Movie updates - where does it go?

    Have to hear from K, but everything goes first to a Terra is you have one. That would be my guess... You might be able to notice if you look at the remaining space on each device before doing the upgrade.

    Wonder Woman - 1984

    I run a 16:9 screen with top masking for primarily 2.4, but added 2.2 recently for Tenet. At least this movie starts in IMAX and then settles to 2.4...

    Wonder Woman - 1984

    Not bad on HBO Max, but want the K version. How does K handle different aspect ratios on films that do this? The beginning was IMAX, then it settled into 2.4.....
