I have a very basic JVC ATMOS Soundbar, it was given to me, not my choice. I downloaded an ATMOS demo which is on a USB stick and it plays fine and the bar indicates it is indeed broadcasting in ATMOS. However if I try and play a film which has is ATMOS from a usb stick or a HDD it will not recognise it. To check if the film did have an ATMOS audio track attached I opened it in Plex and it does show the selectable soundtracks as 5.1 and 7.1 ATMOS.
I posted this on one of the AV forums and was told that a dedicated player would be my answer, and the Vero would be an ideal candidate. I am about to hit buy it but have a few questions…
How would one set this up? I currently have The JVC THD588B and a Samsung MU6400. As it stands I am using ARC to connect the bar to my TV… I am able to stream atmos and also my bar recognises the Dolby demo on a usb stick. But if I try and stream a rip etc it does not recognise the soundtrack. I have been told that in order get ATMOS from a USB or HDD I would need to connect the Vero to the JVC Bar HDMI input, but how would that carry the picture to my TV if it is not connected directly? (sorry if this is all very basic and I come across dumb, I am a noob, hence the user name).
Where is the media stored, is it on the Vero or do I have to use a USB? Where is the dashboard/interface if it is not connected direct to the TV.
Finally how will the TV recognise the Vero as a selectable source/device? Usually when you connect anything to the TV directly you can select it in source but if its going to the bar I assume that cant be done?
I hope all this makes sense??
Thank you very much in advance.
