LG SK8 + Sony BDP-S6700 Atmos compatible?


Novice Member
I have an LG 49” UK6470PLC television, LG SK8 sound bar and Sony bdp-s6700 blu Ray player.

when I play the life of Pets on blu Ray it displays Dolby True HD 7.1 when pressing the display button.

Should I be able to get Atmos with this setup? I’ve got rid of all the old hdmi cables and replaced them with hdmi 2.0 ones.

I use a ‘HDMI Switch Vention’ switch from Amazon.

I’ve followed a guide to change the Sony blu Ray player to bit stream.

I figured out the issue. I needed to connect the hdmi switch (I upgraded to one that states it supports Atmos) to the sound bar. Then connect the sound bar to HDMI 2 (ARC).

Then I need to set the sound bar to HDMI not Opt/HDMI Arc.

I had the switch connected to the tv via HDMI 2.

Now to figure out if it’s possible to keep 4K as well as playing Atmos audio.
