Dolby Atmos

How do I get Dolby Atmos to my soundbar using the V6 box? I am using the best HDMI cables that I could find.

Re: Dolby Atmos

It would depend what you're trying to get it on.

Dolby Atmos is currently only on the BT Sport Ultimate.channel. No other content has it at present.

Re: Dolby Atmos

Is your soundbar connected directly to the V6 or indirectly via HDMI ARC?

Re: Dolby Atmos

I'm also unable to get Dolby Atmos via BT sport ultimate on my v6 box

 

Now I'm not sure if that's because we obviously have no live premier league games on at the moment or it's because I've not set my Dolby Atmos soundbar up correctly

I have a Samsung TV with Samsung soundbar both with Dolby Atmos. 

I have a HDMI cable from soundbar HDMI 1 to HDMI v6 box and I have a HDMI cable from soundbar HDMI arc to tv HDMI arc and I'm unable to get Dolby Atmos on my TV apps for Netflix, YouTube, Amazon prime and BT sport ultimate on v6 box

Re: Dolby Atmos

None of the TV apps on the V6 currently include Dolby Atmos.

Re: Dolby Atmos

Prime Video on V6 has ATMOS. Try Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan

Re: Dolby Atmos

Thanks I'll give it a go 

Are my connections correct

HDMI arc from soundbar to HDMI arc to tv

HDMI 1 soundbar to HDMI slot on v6 box?

Re: Dolby Atmos

Not really as HDMI ARC is for audio from the TV to the sound system, and I don't know the effect of using this to get video in the opposite direction and pushing audio into the soundbar from two sources. Try disconnecting the soundbar from the V6 and connecting the V6 to the TV.

Re: Dolby Atmos

I purchased an Amazon cube

I'm now definitely getting Atmos from Netflix and Amazon prime as I'm getting Atmos displayed across the front of my soundbar

The v6 box I just have plugged into tv again as not much content on the v6 box anyway with Dolby Atmos
