Q9FN One Connect Dolby Atmos/ eARC? HDMI Issues?

Apprentice

Cheers for the information. And what do you use as input to the HDfury to play video or games

I don't game. I have SKY Q, Panasonic UB9000 Blu-Ray player, Xbox One-S (For Netflix as it supports Dolby Atmos and HDR on this device) and lastly the Amazon 4K stick.

It would still support gaming low latency though I'm sure. The good thing about this is that it's firmware upgradeable and they also can just make small alterations to suit you should you need a tweak. Just email them if you are interested but concerned about gaming. I can't recommend it highly enough. It's $600 and saved me a LOT in needing to find AMPs that can support passing through all protocols and eARC is also not need for now and in the future.

Just to throw in my experience. I have Q9FN 2018 and HW-N950 soundbar. I have PS4 Pro connected in to soundbar and then ARC from soundbar to TV.

 

When using the PS4 Pro (via soundbar and then selecting HDMI 1) I cannot change the sound output from PCM (i.e. Dolby Digital and DD+ are greyed out). I have PS4 Pro outputting DD in it's settings. I am not getting Atmos for any games which should have Atmos (i.e. no Dolby Atmos scrolling text on the soundbar).

 

Netflix app (with Super HD profile) both through the TV and the PS4 Pro can't do Atmos.

 

The only Atmos I've managed is Amazon Prime Video. In this case DOLBY ATMOS scrolls across the display of the soundbar.

 

It appears that Netflix TV app doesn't support Atmos. But I am confused (and disappointed) why I can't get Atmos from the PS4 Pro.

you will not get Dolby Atmos on Netflix through a Samsung tv, it has to be through another media device. Also would you not be using your Ps4 settings for sound as it passes through the soundbar first, the tv shouldn't have a lot to do with it apart from equilizer settings. If the Ps4 can produce Dolby Atmos then it should be feeding it directly to the soundbar and not through arc. My N950 displays "surround" on Netflix through the tv with the q9fn settings on dd+. the PS4 cannot produce atmos over blu-ray or disc games it can only pass it through apps.

Thx, you answered a question ive been asking on here last couple days about what the 950 soundbar displays when watching neflix

 

Does your tv settings expert audio settings stay in 'DD+' mode when you watch netflix?

And does the soundbar not scroll 'dolby digital plus' across the display

 

I know netflix use dd+ lossy atmos on last years high end sony tvs (i had one)

 

I beleive SKY will be making their Q box netflix app HDR / atmos compatible sometime this year by firmware update. So thats one way to get atmos sound with q9fn + 950 / 850 soundbar..

 

Pity samsung cant at least update their netflix app for atmos, especially as it has no DTS support too

I use the Xbox One S for Netflix with Dolby Atmos.

my expert settings are DD in the Netflix interface but once I start a movie or show the settings automatically switch to DD+ the sound bar displays surround when I switch to that setting but that's it, all I get is "TV ARC" and a + or - if I adjust the sound. The only time I've seen Dolby Atmos scroll across was on Prime once and playing blu-rays and I don't recall ever seeing Dolby Digital plus scroll across, but that doesn't mean it hasn't I may just not have noticed it.

Yes I agree that Samsung is pretty slack and for their flagship top of the range tv you would think they could have splurged out for some licenses. I think it's the same for this years models too and don't expect any updates from them unless you buy a new tv will be the only way u might get an updated version of Netflix to allow Dolby Atmos
