I have a TU8500 50 inch tv.
I have a ps4, youview box and Sony X800m2, the Sony is connected to my Yamaha rxv 685 directly, the others are connected to the Samsung.
Everything is on auto or pass through.

Yet all digital audio from hdmi sources is down converted to 2 channel pcm whatever settings I chose?.
Same applies to any on-board apps.
Only way I can get 5.1 dolby or dts is if the connection is direct to the Yamaha.
Am I missing something?
Confused? The Samsung clearly has pass through and atmos compatibility.

Hello,
yes but It is mainly compatible with samsung devices, there are some major incompatibilities with various other brands. I believe that the direct connection is the best solution you can get atm.

Thanks for the reply, I managed to sort it out, it does pass through multi channel audio, I got confused with the settings.
