BEST SETUP Question: Sony X900H + Apple TV 4K + Vizio SB46514

So I finally got an Apple TV 4K. I didn’t NEED one until they came out with Fitness+ and made that the only way to get workouts on the TV. I’ll admit though, the upscaling, playback of content, and OS seem great. But looking for the best setup to insure best possible quality with Dolby Vision/Dolby Atmos with the least hassle.

I tried connecting Apple 4K into Soundbar but doing that didn’t pass picture to screen, only audio. Tried HDMI port 1 for Apple TV but that didn’t seem to be giving me Atmos.

All software and firmware is latest all around.

Current setup:
Apple TV 4K > HDMI 4
Xbox One X > HDMI 1
Vizio 5.1.4 Atmos soundbar > HDMI 3 (ARC)

That the best approach? Am I missing something?

SOLVED: eARC on the Sony is the problem. Turn it off and voila. Everything works perfectly! (Haven’t tried to plug Apple TV direct into soundbar but as of now things are working fine without that)
