    I have a 55 inch LG C2
    Samsung Q930 C soundbar setup

    I have my PC hooked to my LG tv via HDMI through the Nvidia 4080

    I have the soundbar hooked to EARC in TV

    when i do a speaker test my LR and RR channels come out of the RF and LF channels.

    This happens with it set to 7.1 and or Dolby Atmos.

    Does Youtube through Chrome support Atmos or 7.1? When I watch Atmos Test videos and the object should come from behind I hear nothing behind me but when it zooms back to front i get front right , center , front left and two front sides.

    This sound bar has front R and L also Front R and L height
    center
    Side R and L
    Rear R and L and Rear R and L height
    Sub

    I just want everything to work right and get the most out of my setup

    I want to listen to music in surround or Atmos as well as movies and games.

    What sound output settings are you using?

    A lot TVs don't pass through more than two channel LPCM, 5.1 Dolby is usually fine, dunno about 7.1 though

    I am using the Nvidia High Def Audio output set to Dolby Atmos for home theater ticked in spatial sound . also set at nvidia properties and exclusive mode are unticked.

    I am testing 7.1 at 24bit 192000 atm. When i test the speakers this way they all work in sound test. Youtube channel test vid still plays the rear test sound out of the fronts. I also get no atmos tags in videos within Netflix through chrome or the app. Same with amazon music or apple music.

    yes to dolby atmos being enabled on the TV and yes to Netflix Premium.

    Could it be a browser issue? Meaning its not supported?

    I can see Youtube being an issue but not Netflix or Amazon music to where the atmos and or 360 surround tags do not even show up in app.

    When I use MPCHC new builds for movies my speakers seem to work fine, I loaded all the new codecs and stuff.

    Is the netflix app running from the TV or your PC?

    Maybe a silly question but the netflix shows you are checking support atmos right?

    Do you even have a set of back speakers in your setup or just that soundbar?

    Yup when I cross check from the apple box and then the pc both amazon and netflix show their respective spatial sound formats.


    It is a Samsung q930C a 9.1.4 setup consisting of the sound bar with center, left, right , left side, right side,left up firing and right up firing , right rear speaker with up firing and left rear with up firing, and a sub.

    I have been reading up on this way to much lol.

    I found a link to this site to test audio channels

    AAC Multichannel Playback Test (fraunhofer.de)

    This plays everything correctly which means all is working on audio end I am thinking.

    I am left wondering where the issue is.

    To test all the channels that I could I set my windows speaker setting to 7.1 and ran the 7.1 channel test.

    Atmos setting for home cinema seems to not play from all the channels but that might be normal and ill have to switch between 7.1 and atmos depending on content? I am really out of the loop with all this audio stuff and its way more complex with all these setting across diff devices than I anticipated.

    Edit:: Reinstall of Netflix App and Dolby Atmos tags are now present but still not through chrome.

    Apple Music has no Spatial audio/Atmos tags via windows app
    Amazon music app has no spatial audio tags on HD/Ultra HD or via browser

    pinguX is right, but i will say you should run the Apple TV app for videos and believe it or not iTunes as new(er) updates link AppleTV and iTunes, then separate podcasts from media
