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
denodan, you're the kind of guy who plays with others problems!
So, you've a Samsung TV and are getting Atmos from your netflix app, and then you say that atmos get it's lossy via that streaming source!
Others like me, don't get atmos at all.. I'm not get your point!!!
I've 2 firing up dedicate speakers that could be running quite often (they actually run with appletv4k connected to my AV receiver, one extra spent on appletv to fulfill the samsung gap, more one thing in the forniture), otherwise, I only would get atmos with my blueray player. Quality via blueray it's outstading, but think twice when "you say" that lossy atmos it's like a *****, for sure your bar doesn't do what it should, in my system with distinct speakers, it's pretty awesome in the lossy format... imagine with lossless Dolby truehd.
If this topic doesn't fit with your life, please make a favour for the others and absent yourself of comment it!
@Smazza1070, I've lost my faith in my 7105, just replied to keep the post alive, but I won't buy a Samsung TV, that's for sure, lost weeks with partner support and they took my TV to repair 4 weeks two times, because of waking issue when connected with WIFI. Had to solve the issue by my own, buying a powerline kit to use the cable instead wifi.. one more extra spend with the TV.
Have a denon avr-x2700h running 5.1.2 and the only option to solve the problem was buying a Appletv4k and connecting it to receiver, no more issues. 😁
Don't have samsung smartphones (fortunately), all settings that may interact with smart equipaments were off.
They used the remote services, they took the TV, they left one other samsung tv here for borrow that didn't woke up connected to wifi.. this happened in 2018 and found another person with same issue, that solved the issue like me, powerline and connected the tv to internet by cable.
They decline responsibility, saying that I live in a place with third party interferences (I don't live in an apartment, but a house with just a few houses nearby, and ofcourse, my old tv didn't had this kind of issue, and the model they borrow also don't)... well, don't want to remind that times..
I have a 2021 QN800A and a Q70T with eARC connected, pass-through and atmos enabled and it will not play atmos content from any of the native TV apps. On top of this, YouTube will not stream 8K content from the native app either. Samsung just doesn't care about its pro-sumers at all.
The Q70T 100% does Atmos and I was finally able to get it working by force closing netflix and rebooting the TV. After that, Netflix finally allowed me to play Atmos content. It also fixed the 8k YouTube issue
