This is open source, isn't it?

Yes. The first filter fix allowed Atmos disc to be played properly (computer based players had an issue where the Atmos data was messing up playback). My system never had a problem playing back (hmmm?). I bought TF4 on day one and popped it in and it played TrueHD 7.1. The new version of LAV filter sorts out the Atmos issues. What's being worked on now is a decoder for the metadata (if my sources are correct).

A non open source vst already exist for Auro 3D and it will matrix non Auro 3D sources. No Auro 3D movie content exist - but there are about 6 audio only (music) - multi channel disc that exist.

I'm very confident that all of this will make it's way to PC soon (just like Blu did). If its made and mixed on a PC...it can be decoded by one as well

It's about time that Cyberlink update its player (I can play Cyberlink or my old TMT inside of JRiver if I want to...now with all of my JRiver enhancements). With that in mind - I would think that the next version of PDVD will include either Atmos or DTS-UHD decoding...if not both. The PC used to be my test platform of choice...now it's just my platform of choice!

auro probably wont be a real competition as much as they want to be. film studios trust only dolby and DTS. auro's been chomping at the dolby/dts since forever... but they won't make it.
Blu-Ray is so awesome! =)

I can agree with that statement. If anything, I see Auro turning into a music only format. It has placed itself into some price processors, and its concentration seems to be multi-channel music.

Obscure releases on obscure labels. The'd be lucky to be as "successful" as DTS CDs were (and those had some mainstream artists).

I am impressed, by the open source community for pulling this off.

And I don't expect Dolby Atmos to appear in commercial software yet. But I'd love to see them working with hardware manufacturers, something like Creative to create a sound card that goes beyond 7.1.

Maybe something to push PC gaming into overhead surrounds. Now that will give PC gamers something to brag about.

That would be sweet, I can see Asus pulling that off before Creative ( just a little jab at Creative - they used to be the sound card kings, now they are behind Asus and HT Omega...speaking of which - HT Omega is supposed to be working on some type of super sound card).

I haven't been in touch with PC technology. What about this brand? Auzentech or something? I remember they used to make pretty good HTPC type of sound cards.

Auzentech used to make one of the best sound cards - they haven't done anything in years. The best sound cards are now made by Asus and HT Omega (I actually have the Asus in one htpc and the HT Omega Claro Halo XT in another - both have Burson Supreme op-amp upgrades on the main cards and Muses upgrades on the daughter cards). I will however give Creative a nod for the ZxR too
