Yes, it does support hdr passthrough. I’m using the Xbox one X and PS4 Pro with Samsung 60” ks8000. The HDMI cable that came along with the soundbar I use it for ARC connection from the Samsung One Connect box’s HDMI ARC to soundbar’s HDMI ARC , PS4 Pro to connect to soundbar’s HDMI 1 and One X to 2, it does show hdr when I play hdr contents on the tv screen when I press the information button.
All new to this.
I have Samsung Qled 65f TV, HW K950 soundbar and m9500 4k player.
I want to experience Dolby atmos sound.
My current setting is:
TV to SOUNDBAR - HDMI cable 2.0 TV ARC to SOUNDBAR ARC.
M9500 PLAYER- HDMI cable 2.0 running from Anynet HDMI port to TV HDMI port.
Are my settings correct and will I get Dolby sound ??
No, you will not get Atmos with that setup (only regular DD 5.1). ARC does not support Atmos. You need to connect player directly to soundbar, soundbar to tv.
When Atmos is active on the soundbar there is a blue light on the top right corner. Dolby Atmos text is also shown in the display.
Here is a problem I just noticed, I got a software updaate for my UBD-KM85C dvd player. Now I get no sound on Netflix or Amazon Prime Video, anyone have any ideas as to what happened or have had the same problem?
I power cycled both the DVD player and the soundbar. That worked, thanks. So tell me, are they going to add the other Dolby surround formats to the sound bar? I'm really dissapointed with that, I got rid of my Pioneer surround sound system for this soundbar. The soundbar its self has issues with the ARC TV.
It handles other Dolby formats, you just don't get the blue light except for Atmos. If you have setup to upload the sound bar software updates, it handles DTS formats also. Read the thread regarding updates.
