So I’m new here I’ve been searching before asking questions but im coming up with nothing so I have to ask.
In my home we have a 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos setup with a Pioneer VSX-933, a lot of my media is stored in “7.1TrueHD-Atmos”
With Apple TV settings set to ‘auto’ and my receiver set to 5.1.2 whenever I play these files my receiver reverts to PCM 5.1.
But if I change my receiver to 7.1 (yes even though the speakers are in the roof) then upon playing the same file the receiver will pick it up as 7.1 content.
My issue is, I think because the “atmos” track is stored in “7.1” and my receiver is configured as “atmos 5.1.2” (which I’ve verified with Apple TV+ is working correctly, video files that support atmos there it comes up with the DD Atmos logos on the lcd of the receiver) then infuse 6 can’t match the audio track with the number of available channels on my receiver so it reverts me back to 5.1?
I’m not sure if this is the case or not, but I can’t seem to get it working in any of my content (tested about 20 - 30 movies, most 4k, HDR, 7.1-atmos)
I’m loading the files off a SMB share from a local home server.
What am I doing wrong?
