I have the Samsung HW-Q90R sound bar and Samsung Q8DN television. I’ve connected the Vero4K+ directly to the HDMI 1 input on the soundbar, and connected the TV to the soundbar through HDMI ARC.
My issue is that I can’t get my soundbar to display “Atmos” in its display window, which I believe means it is indeed not encoding in Atmos. Instead it says “Surround”, which means it upscales to 7.1 or whichever. When I go to Netflix, I have the option to activate Digital Dolby+. But doesn’t seem like it does anything. Still won’t say Dolby Atmos in display of the soundbar.
When I play a file directly off Vero4K with an Atmos-track, it also says “Surround” and not Atmos. I have enabled “allow passthrough”. Don’t know if that is supposed to be on or not with Vero4k connected straight to soundbar? I struggle mildly to find out what passthrough actually does, to be fair…When playing through the Vero, I only get options between PCM and Dolby Digital. Not Dolby Digital+.
So what exactly do I need to do to enable Atmos using my soundbar?
