LG C1 and beam2 atmos help please


Novice Member
Good morning

I hope you can help please?

I have purchased a Sonos beam 2 to go along with my LG c1 telly and was wondering what settings I need to have on my LG to receive Dolby Atmos?

I have been on Amazon and Netflix via my Virgin V6 box and I am only getting Dolby digital 5.1 plus when it should me be atmos .

Could you please advise as I am not sure if I have my settings wrong on my LG.

Thanks for your help :)

eARC = enabled (Sonos Beam 2 supports eARC)
HDMI audio input = bitstream
Digital sound output = pass-through

Use the internal apps on the TV and they should send DD+ Atmos were supported.

HDMI devices many need additional configuration in passing audio.

Also make sure firmware is up to date on both TV and soundbar.

Awesome thank you, might be the virgin V6 box causing no atmos as this is how I have it set up at the moment .

However Sonos say I should digital sound as automatic 🤷🏽‍♂️ But that does not make any difference

Will try it tonight 👍
