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
Yes I am, if I was not getting 120fps the tv would not allow me to select it. Even the tv settings in Xbox says 120fps am able to select it. The Q90R certianly does 120fps. It has wider bandwidth than normal hdmi 2.0 its hdmi 2.0b and a custom version, but only works on hdmi port 4
On hdmi 4 its 24gb bandwidth not 18gb of hdmi 2.0 and only hdmi 4 will work. Also get VRR and FRC. The hdmi bug only effects some receivers and does not effect tvs, on HDTV he mentions this, its hdmi bug with a certian Panasonic hdmi chip. And he also said going through your tv will be fine
I am not the only one who is getting 120fps on Samsung Q90R, its bandwidth is 24gb, not 18. The rest of the ports on the one box are 2.0, the 4th is 2.0b. The only thing won't get 12bit colour, evrn though the Q90R is selectable.
Also the recent firmware allows VRR at 120hz, before the update was selectable, but mucked up the screen. Also game mode seems clearer
Just because your tv has Dolby Visiin does not mean its great. Just like a cheap TV wont have good HDR depends on how well your tv processes the picture. Dolby vision is well over hyped and seen and heard examples very little difference and very minor to not worth worrying about. Samsung does very good HDR processing compared to many tvs. I dont miss Dolby Vision and really needs a 12bit tv panel to make full use as its really designed for 12bit much brighter screens, so not working at its best potential on a 10bit screen and why little difference over HDR
Hi guys! I've read this topic, but I can't say I've seen a solution for Q6F TVs. Or maybe I've missed it...
So, I have the same issue reported by so many others. If I'm using the internal app to run a mkv movie that supports Dolby Atmos, it works perfectly with my Q70T soundbar. It is also working if I use prime app. My problem is that Dolby Atmos does not work for Netlifx app.
I've tried to:
- start a movie (Dolby Atmos available) with the internal app, and then switch to Netflix
- I've updated soundbar's firmware via Smart things app
- I already have the latest firmware on the TV
- being a 2018 TV, I cannot find any Input Signal Plus or Atmos Compatibility menu setting
Do you know if there is workaround here? Thank you so much!
Hi, when I had this issue I done a hard factory reset on the TV and it restored atmos (via digital +)
You can try soft reset 1st by holding down the power button on the remote.
Also make sure tv setting has digital + enabled on audio (probably check this 1st)
