Samsung TU8000 does not have Multichannel PCM sound

I have a Samsung TU8000 TV (2020). Having spoken with a Samsung expert, I was informed that multichannel PCM (LPCM) is a supported audio format on that TV; however, when I run sound passthrough to my Sonos Arc, I still only get Stereo PCM 2.0. I have tried changing all audio settings to different configurations, but this is all that I get. For instance, if I have a Nintendo Switch running on it and try to get surround sound (which should be applied now due to the Sonos Arc's support of multichannel PCM), I still cannot get it.

 

Samsung, are there plans to update your firmware to allow for multichannel PCM sound? If not, will you please issue one?

I'm having this exact same issue with my Sony 7.1 Receiver via eARC on my Q80T. I'm tempted to return the TV and buy an LG instead over this.
