It seems the PS5 is lacking both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos

This is really disappointing for me, was waiting for the ps5 as a 4K blu-ray player and all my hdmi slots are full! I think I’ll just buy a 4K blu-ray player.

Sony on the PS5 is pushing their proprietary sound technology. I believe it requires proprietary hardware i.e. headphones, but will soon support normal headphones too.

The fine print is that they will be in no hurry to support Atmos, if ever.

More disappointing is the lack of Dolby Vision. Xbox X supports it but for one big snag - if you’re watching non-HDR Netflix content you have to disable HDR on the Xbox - because the app forces HDR by default, which will mess up standard def colours. This is apparently the fault of Netflix.

Atmos is supported through 4k/blus if you are in the media player with a disc playing that has Atmos. You need to change the settings while in the app to Bitstream from PCM in order for it to work.
Unfortunately this setting does not work for any of the streaming apps.
So the PS5 as an actual media player is pretty much broken.
