Harman/Kardon HW-N850 soundbar - PS5 audio settings


Novice Member
Hello everybody

So there you have it, after a long time using my sound bar on my LG CX TV, I just realized that I was using the wrong settings : I was in PCM
However I come to you because I do not know too much about If I should put it in AUTO or on PASSTROUGH?
My sound bar is connected to my TV with HDMI ARC because it does not have HDMI eARC and my ps5 is connected directly to my TV.

From what I understand, I should adjust on the LG CX
HDMI Input Audio Format: Bitstream
Digital Audio Out: Auto
EARC: Disabled (because my sound bar does not have an HDMI EARC port)
In the menus of the PS5:
Device Type: AV Amplifier
Number of channels: 5.1
Audio Format: Linear PCM

Have I adjusted correctly or am I missing something?
Or do I just have to leave the default settings on my PS5 regarding audio?

I specify that all my films or series, I do not watch them on my console.
