i have Q9FN and HW N850 Atmos Soundbar
when using Netflix App on the TV, i went into Expert Audio Settings and it lets me select "dolby digital +" for audio ouput
the hw n850 sounbar supports Atmos
yet when on netlfix still only get crappy 5.1 sound
ive owned a sony xf9005 recently and their netflix app gives Dolby Atmos sound using "dolby digital +" , yes it is "lossy" dolby atmos but still sounds much better than DD 5.1
so my question is why are Samsung not updating their Netflix App to have Dolby Atmos. i have what is required here, dolby digital + selected on q9fn and atmos capable hw n850 soundbar. this is all thats required for "lossy Dolby Atmos" same as you get on 2018 sony & LG tv's
come on samsung, please sort this out by updating to a atmos capable Netflix APP version. its all thats needed
its bad enough having no DTS after spending £2000 on your tv & sounbar, the very least you can do to keep customers a little bit happier is Fix this one
@rahulsandhu: Does your setup all the time switch the soundbar on and off when you toggle the TV? Do you have devices on your soundbar?
I only have a Q7F (2017)... So I probably won't get it . But it would be interesting to know if 2018 and 2019 will be getting.
For what it's worth, I've noticed excessive clouding when viewing HDR content (backlight goes to '20' automatically) and they have agreed its a panel issue and will fix under warranty. As the set is a 2017 model I'm wondering if they still a panel and , if not, will I get a 2018 or 2019 replacement?
That'd be great to get some Atmos greatness
Well why you are lucky if it doesn't work like it should? Mine doesn't turn on automatically when I switch on my TV but switches off correctly when the TV turns off. Don't know why but I have this behavior since the beginning. I all the time have to switch it on via the corresponding options on the TV.
@rahulsandhu well the soundbar is able to decode Atmos, DTS:X, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, and Dolby TrueHD, along with DTS Digital Sound and DTS-HD Master Audio.
