Denon AVR-X3600H not passing Apple TV Dolby Vision


Standard Member
I purchased an Apple TV 4k at the weekend and i’m having trouble with The Denon AVR passing through Dolby Vision to the TV.

The components in question are;
Sony Bravia KD49XG9005
Apple TV 4k
Denon AVR-X3600H
5.1 Speaker set up
2 x 1m MyTySun 2.1 48Gbps HDMI Cables (Amazon)

All have been updated to the latest firmware and the AVR has 4k Signal Format set to Enhanced.

When I route the Apple TV into the AVR using 6 AUX2 input (second closest to the output) and Connect the AVR to the TV using the ARC channel (TV HDMI 3), I get 5.1 sound but only a 4k SDR 50Hz picture.

When I route the Apple TV to the TV using HDMI 2 and then back the the AVR using the ARC Channel (TV HDMI 3), I get 4k Dolby Vision 60Hz but only but only Stereo sound.

It would appear that my system will give the highest possible sound and vision but with the current configurations, I have not been able to get both together.

Has anybody else experienced this issue?
Are there and further settings I should try?
Is there a different configuration I should try?
Or any other suggestions you can give?

Thank you in advance for your help.

I have replaced the HDMI cables with CYP Premium UHD 4K Certified 2.2 HDMI Cables in 2m.
I checked the cables with the HDMI certification app and they are genuine.
I still have the same issue, can anybody think of anything else to check?

You need to set the HDMI setting to Enhanced under Menu - Video - 4K Signal Format
