I can't seem to get everything to work together. I have a Samsung JS8500 and the Samsung HW-K950 soundbar. Pairing this with the Xbox 1X has been a headbanger.
From what I understand, in order to get Dolby Atmos support for the xbox, I need to connect the xbox directly into the back of the soundbar. The enables me to get Atmos up and running on the xbox. However, with this configuration the X1 shows that HDR 10 Support is not available.
In order to get HDR 10, I need to plug the xbox directly into the One Connect Mini. However, the soundbar cannot pass Dolby Atmos support through the one connect mini.
Help! How do I get the two samsung products to work together to be able to get both HDR 10 AND Dolby Atmos simultaneously?
Please don't tell me I've wasted money by being Samsung Loyal and have to pick between these two technologies.

Okay. Apparently my problem was with the individual input capabilities. Running HDMI from the X1 into the soundbar (HDMI1), and then running HDMI from the soundbar to the One Connect TV arc switches my TV input to HDMI 4 (Set as an AV Receiver).
By default, HDMI UHD Color is not enabled on this port. I had to go to back into the manuals to find out how to enable UHD HDR for this one.
Menu/123 >> Menu >> Picture >> Picture Options >> HDMI UHD Color
From there I was able to turn on the HDMI UHD Color for HDMI 4 ... and ... Perfect. 4K, HDR, And Atmos.
I had my cable running into the x1 when it first came out. I switch away from that some time ago. I may revisit it and see how how well the upscaling works.
Thanks for the help!
