No one is avoiding anything. Maybe you've heard, there's a pandemic going on. It already totally altered the plans to release this theatrically. The release to stream on AppleTV+ was entirely unplanned. We should be grateful that things were able to pivot to this online streaming thing.It certainly seems like someone is going to a lot of effort to avoid releasing this Universal Music album on Blu-ray Audio. At 57 minutes long, they could put the whole album on a BD-25 in Dolby Atmos (~4 GB), and LPCM 5.1 (~12 GB) and Stereo (~4 GB) both at 192/24 (assuming the audio even exists at 192/24, if it's "only" 96/24, then it's ~6 GB and ~2 GB) and even have plenty of room for the visuals, especially if they used a lossless compression codec like DTS-HD MA.
Is the laptop a PC or a MAC?How come this release hasn't got a poll? Are they for physical releases only?
Oh, and just in case there's anyone as dumb as me out there. I spent ages trying to get this to play in 5.1 through my amp via itunes on my laptop. Was about ready to chuck the whole thing out the window with a lot of cursing of Apple (well that will always happen anyway) , then realised,: I had not changed the audio channel in itunes.. channel 1 is stereo. 2 is 5.1.... amp was saying it was getting a 5.1 signal from my laptop, because it was.... but iTunes only playing in stereo .... d'oh... buffoonery...
PC.Is the laptop a PC or a MAC?
Are you able to get Atmos from iTunes on the laptop to your amp?
