    I have just got an LG SJ9 soundbar and LG and feedback online has told me it supports Dolby Vision.

    Apple TV -> LG TV works fine.

    Apple TV -> Soundbar -> LG TV doesn't work. It will only do standard HDR at 4k not DV.

    I downloaded the LG flow app to update the firmware and didn't seem to many any difference.

    Any ideas?

    Assuming it does support Dolby Vision it seems more of an AppleTV issue, in that it does not detect that the soundbar is DV compatible.

    You could use ARC as the TV and soundbar both support Atmos over ARC but I'm not sure on the AppleTV it's support for Atmos is still in testing ? and may not support the custom extension required for Atmos over ARC.
