Playstation 5 and Dolby digital Plus with Sonos arc A90J


Novice Member
Hey guys, so I had a bit of a strange issue going on. So I have the Sony A90J and the new Sonos Arc (2021). I have the ps5 connected to HDMI 2.1 input 4 in the tv. I have the Sonos arc connected to the eARC port of the tv. Pass thru is enabled and the sound output settings are for dobly digital plus and auto 2 (compressed multi channel output). So up to yesterday the ps5 was outputting dobly digital plus. For some reason it suddenly stopped and now all I get is dobly digital 5.1.

I keep switching from dobly bitstream to DTS see if anything changes and have no clue what changed. If I set the ps5 to 7.1 LPCM I get sound that seems more subtle. I dunno how to get it to show dobly digital plus again on the Sonos app when I check the sound I’m receiving. Has anyone had this issue or know anything ??? Any info will help. And thanks I’m advance guys. I’ve looked all over.
