So I have a pretty simple setup - a Samsung 4K TV and a Bose 520 Cinemate surround system. The Bose 520 does not support 4K HDR via its own HDMI inputs, therefore I need to connect most of devices directly to the TV and return audio back to the Bose via the HDMI Arc channel.
For longest time, I have been in search of a Plex Media player that can direct play everything I throw at it (including PGS subtitles).
I just got an Apple TV specifically to try out infuse and it perfectly plays back video but I’m having big trouble with the audio.
When I have it set to auto, if will output LPCM but my Bose will only report LPCM 2.0. after carefully examining different surround tracks, I have determined that my speakers are in fact not outputting surround 5.1 but instead 2.0. My Samsung has two settings in its own Audio, “PCM” Or “Bitstream” and I’ve played around with both to no avail…
So I thought, well at least just getting basic Dolby and DTS to Passthrough would be ideal. When I set audio to “Passthrough” I get large static sound and especially can’t get DTS to Passthrough properly to my receiver.
Does anyone have any thoughts as to how to get my issue fixed, short of buying a brand new surround system?
