    Hi. I am putting my Apple TV through a Sony soundbar to get Atmos which works pretty good. Problem I have is I’m connected to one of the enhanced HDMI sockets in order to get HDR but the TV insists on saying “if you have no sound connect to ARC hdmi 3”. Everything works fine but I keep getting this ***** message! I don’t want I go through HDMI 3 as it doesn’t support HDR. Can I switch this message off? It’s driving me nuts!

    Have you gone into the TV's sound menu and set it to external speakers.

    Hi, thanks for reply. Yep, it’s all as it should be. This is extremely annoying as it’s a decent 4K TV so I don’t know why all the ports aren’t hdr anyway but to then put this message up is ridiculous. Just once would be irritating but it just keeps flashing up. I’ll have to take the soundbar back if I can’t sort it, it’s that bad

    Update! Been a bit of a twit. HDMI3 does actually support HDR (2 & 3 do on my TV) I didn’t realise I had to update the settings on the AppleTV if I changed HDMI sockets. So all good now! Amazing what a beer and a last minute late night look can achieve!
