Seems there was another update:

- Improves overall performance and stability
- HEOS app update

I think this update fixed the HDR pass-through for HTPC that uses Win 10. As always, there isn't anything on the changelog.

I plan to expand my spk lay out from current 7.2.4 to 7.2.8 for the 8500 AVCto cater for Atmos as well as Auro, 4 more surround to be added to current 2 front top and 2 back top. a additional top surround will go to 2 middle top surround, one centre height and one more ( TS  ) top surround.  my question is  where to place the centre height, it is directly on top of centre spk on the ceiling or inline with centre but but on the front wall ?  and what about the Top surround ( TS ) how far away from the front wall ( on the centre axle offcause .
        any bros can advise pls

I believe 8500 only process 11 channel ?
Center height channel , i dont think current Aduy calibration can or support that ....
i dont think there is any AVR out there in the market can support 2 tyoe of physical speaker layout .

Bro this amp can do 11 channels plus wide for a total of 13. The rest will simply playback the same channels..

I think this is what u r looking for.
I understand that the AVR8500 will switch on the appropriate speakers for the sound mode, i remember that was being pitch when I am looking at it. I may go to this later if Auro3D material becomes more maintstream and 8500 survived.  😁

Hope this helps
