How to connect Q90R for Atmos?

Hello peeps. 

 

I'm new to 4k and Dolby Atmos and anything TV related (my previous TV was over 9 years old). I understand that QLED TVs don't support Atmos or Vision, but I'm planning to use the Q90R as a panel only. I will watch most of my stuff with Apple TV 4K, Xbox One X and Chromecast 4K. I will skip all TV apps. I understand that hardware listed above do actually support Atmos and Vision. 

 

Is there anyway to connect all the gear to actually get Dolby Atmos and Vision?

 

Thanks for any tips.

What sound system are you trying to use? Does it support Atmos?

I'm planning  to get an Atmos capable soundbar. Either LG or Samsung.

Then you would connect Atmos compatible devices to the soundbar directly.

Thanks for that. That makes my choice somewhat easier as I was confused by "QLED doesn't have Atmos" comments. I assume it's related to TV built-in apps? 

 

Also, would there be a way to get Dolby Vision on Q90R through Apple TV 4K?

 

Or am I out of luck on that one? I'm not really chasing Dolby Vision, since it's still a war between DV and HDR10+ right now, but something I'm insterested in.

It is because Dolby Atmos is not supported via ARC.

 

The television does not support Dolby Vision. For all Dolby standards, both devices must support that standard. 

 

I'm in the same boat, I'm just waiting for the dust to settle on DV vs HDR10+

Perfect, thank you very much for your help. 

Guess I might go with Q90R only due to bright living room and constant fear of burn-in on OLED because kids like to watch the same thing over and over. Hopefully the standard is set in the next 5 years.

Hey!

I read your answer but i found a different one from another moderator!
You say "both devices must support that standard", but the other member says "If you are sending the Dolby Vision content to a receiver that supports Dolby Vision and then to connecting the receiver to the television, you will get Dolby Vision."

But since no Samsung tv supports Dolby Vision, it seems that your statement is correct and the second isn't!

Can you please help me?
Thanks in advance!

@SamaungGill Then what about the native apps on Samsung Q90R TV? They can't play Atmos with compatible Q90R soundbar. Is it due to missing eARC
