Re: Update LOVE !! - 2016 Soundbar w/ Dolby Atmos HW-K950

HDMI Arc will not pass Dolby Atmos.   There are numerous complaints on this thread blaming Samsung and the Soundbar, but this is a design feature of HMDI Arc.   A new standard was just launched HDMI eArc that will pass Dolby Atmos.  So,  you can just connect your HDMI Arc to the HDMI 1 or 2 on the Soundbar and see what happens.

Maybe dumb question but is there a way to see if my k950 is receiving DD or DTS signal? In other words how to see what Audiosignal is coming in to the k950

Other question can I stream video directly from my Nas/ dlna server? Seems only to work with music

And is it right I cannot use equalizer when listening music in surround mode?

I'm not aware of any way to "see* DTS vs Dolby except Atmos which shows the blue LED light on the bar.  The source component or file should tell you.

 

You should be able to stream from the server if you connect through hmdi 1 or 2.  Does it stream video if you connect directly to the TV?

Has anyone had trouble with Blade Runner 2049 with listening to it in ATMOS? I have the Blu-Ray and I select AtMOS in the Audio Menu and I get no sound, infact I don't get the audio scroll for dolby when the audio starts to play in DTS either. Am I missing something??

The audio needs to be set to bitstream on the Blu-ray unit menu.  The hmdi cable must connect directly to the soundbar into hmdi 1 or 2.

"Yup this soundbar should accept Atmos through ARC".

I think the new 2017 LG OLED tvs allow ARC and Dolby Vision at the same time.  But those are competitors of samsung so there is no incentive for this soundbar to improve.  Samsung supports HDR-10, not dolby vision.
