Strange, only the HD version shows the update for my system here, my HDR version doesn't have an update available and has always shown both Atmos and DTS-HD 7.1. No mention of "Video quality improvements."

Strange... I don’t remember what I had but two systems were updated (one has the HDR and the other the HD version).
Post #149 from @Luke may be the answer to why this is happening.

Thanks guys, mine may have been automatically upgraded.....because I'm special....😁

Obviously kidding. Unfortunately, when it comes to audio and video "improvements", once they are downloaded there is no mention that it's been done, with exception to audio tracks being added (Atmos, DTS-HD, etc.), so I have no way to know if I received "video" improvements, but my copies of the HDR version shows Atmos, and the DTS-HD 7.1, and there is no "update" available. Maybe a glitch, I'll figure it out tomorrow when they open.

This upgrade process needs to be fully automated as an option.... Maybe you are testing that new feature! 😉

If I'm being used to test it, they forgot to tell me!😄

Seriously though, I think the option to have the updates done automatically would be great, but not sure how much engineering work is involved.
These things always sound easy to implement, unless you're the person tasked with making it happen!

I would NOT be happy with automatic updates as this process would delete all my marked scenes. Even worse is that I wouldn’t be about to watch the scenes and not start and stop times so I could re-mark. I would just have to remember what I had. Also, automatic updates would strip out the scenes from all of the scripts anyone has downloaded.

I did say “as an option” :)

Maybe they could come up with a way to preserve scenes, etc....

Missed that...I would be fine as long as I could opt-out. Users would still need to understand that downloaded Scripts could be affected.

Yes, I agree that the "option" would be great.

There were some differences in audio between the Blu-ray quality version of Clapton and the first pass of the 4k HDR version we released. We worked with the provider on an alternate audio track.
