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
It won't output atmos on the low end soundbar you have. If you want atmos then need a much better sound bar. The TV with Earc will enable atmos, but your soundbar is not capable of outputting atmos. It's like saying if my tv has earc I should get almost through a single speaker, which is impossible. Simple fact your soundbar is not possible to output atmos or allow earc to output atmos to your low end soundbar.
No dolby + will only be atmos if your sound bar is capable of it. The TV itself is not atmos, so no way are you ever going to get dolby + to work unless your soundbar is atmos capable. Dolby + is only for atmos and if your soundbar cannot do atmos, or your tv then won't get it. It's just not available to you.
I have the q90r tv and soundbar and my tv outputs atmos to soundbar with dolby + simply because my soundbar has atmos inbuilt. My Xbox bypasses tv altogether and the Xbox does its own processing and gets atmos output on soundbar
Get a decent soundbar which has atmos built in and you will get atmos. A good capable atmos soundbar is not cheap, not low end like you have. Certially not on a 3.1 system. Mine is 7.1.2 channels. With your setup no way can you get atmos and spend the money on a decent capable atmos capable soundbar.
