Are you able to select Dolby Atmos as the sound output from your Series X when the TV audio output is set to "Passthrough"?My setup is working to: Xbox series X to LG CX (03.21.16) with original xbox HDMI than from LG by eARC to Samsung HW-Q950T (firmware ver 1017.5) via samsung original HDMI.
This is amazing Jon. I have the same setup as you.Everything working after 2/9 Xbox update! This is for @PrMinisterGR since he and I were talking about this 2 months back, and for @AWESOME 4000 too since we were DM'ing about it, because he and I have same exact TV/sound setups. BLUF: before the update, if I connected straight to my LG CX TV, I couldn't get Atmos at the bar. If I connected straight to the bar, I could get Atmos, but lost 120FPS.
Now the detailed post. Before, with the Xbox Series S hooked straight to the bar, I could do 4K/60FPS/HDR/VRR/Atmos, but not 120FPS. Now I've got 120FPS! Before, with the Xbox Series X hooked straight to the LG CX TV, I could get 4K/120FPS/HDR/VRR but no Atmos. Xbox just wouldn't pass it. It would only do Dolby Digital. Now I've got Atmos! [One caveat: for Xbox game titles, if you connect Xbox straight to the bar, you're only going to have 1080p gameplay (movies will still be 4K though); however, connected straight to the TV, you will have 4K gameplay (or 2K, in my case, since I have Series S).
Before, it was a tradeoff of "do I want 4K/HDR gameplay and 120FPS by connecting straight to the TV, while sacrificing Atmos?" or "could I live with 4K/HDR gameplay and 60FPS by connecting straight to the bar, which gives me Atmos?" Now, I don't have to choose. Connecting straight to the TV gives me everything, including Atmos. No audio/dialogue delay, either. I. AM. STOKED.
Set to Auto and now letting me select Atmos but now got a delay on AC Valhalla :-(T
This is amazing Jon. I have the same setup as you.
You definitely have the TV audio output set to "Passthrough" and not "Auto" and passes atmos no worries?
I'm away right now and can't wait to get home and test this for myself!
You will love it - XBox issue aside mine sounds amazing, it was a replacement to a 7.1 Yamaha wired system and I think this sounds better. Watched The Mandolorian on Disney plus and wow it sounds stunningJust hope it all gets resolved, have my 950t coming next week...
Hope so, I'm coming from a 8 year old Denon AVR 5.1...with boston acoustics..You will love it - XBox issue aside mine sounds amazing, it was a replacement to a 7.1 Yamaha wired system and I think this sounds better. Watched The Mandolorian on Disney plus and wow it sounds stunning
Yes bro, Digital sound out set to "auto" on my tv. But i can use dolby digital.Thanks mate. Not that I dont believe you guys, just would love to see a video or something because i'm excited!
Just switched back to auto and select "atmos" i think working normal, please try.Yes bro, Digital sound out set to "auto" on my tv. But i can use dolby digital.
But i can swear, it working good with atmos and "auto" but few days ago, sound became aweful from xbox.
I got delay, but when i switched to pass thought and DD and than back to auto and atmos, delay is minimal, but atmos - way better than DD even with delay.Did you get any delay? I got some audio delay on Assassins Creed Valhalla and worse on Odyssey. R6 siege not great but bearable but needs to be better as the game relies on sound
Have you downloaded the Dolby Access app on your Xbox?Please can you help me then - I have XBOX series X >LG CX > Q950T and I have set up CX as:
Atmos - on
Sound out - ARC
DTV Audio - Auto
ALL HDMI set to Bitstream
Digital sound out - pass through
eARC - enabled
using dolby access XBox settings are
HDMI audio - bitstream out
Bitstream audio - this defaults to stereo
When I try to set Atmos in the XBox I get the error message "Your reciever doesn't support Dolby Atmos for home theatre" which it clearly does - I have certified brand new 2.1 HDMI cables so I know it is not that (I get beutiful HDR gaming on AC Valhalla)
What are your settings to get this? Any help will be greatly appreciated
Yes it is installed but if I set it up with pass through on the CX it tells me the soundbar is not Atmos compatible. If I use auto on the CX I can choose Atmos but there is an audio delayHave you downloaded the Dolby Access app on your Xbox?
You will need to download this and click a few buttons to enable “Dolby Atmos for Home Theatre” in the app.
