Infuse wrong surround with Apple TV 4k + stereo HomePods

Apple TV 4K 2021 directly connected to an LG OLED65G1.

Apple TV 4k (2021)
Only connected to Ethernet and my Philips 77OLED806 via HDMI 2.0 cable
I‘ve tested with Reduce Bass Switsch on and off which changed nothing
Also I rebooted my Apple TV and the HomePods + killed the infuse app but nothing changed

Anything new on this topic?
I’ve also tested the files in my bedroom (ATV 4K 1Gen with an old Sharp Full HD TV and 2 HomePod Classic as Stereo Pair) with the same results…

Edit: Infuse is on the latest release version 7.4.1 on both ATVs

Poster from the original topic here, I can also confirm that it is still not behaving properly on my setup.
Using ATV 4K (latest model), Panasonic TV (but tv would not mather because the connection is between the ATV and the Homepods).

So three people with the same issue and it is still being ignored :frowning:

That’s how firecore works…
The are many other bug reports they also ignore…
Like this one

And we are not the only ones

Many bugs are ignored and a lot suggestions are ignored or „planned“ for years

I‘m still missing MRMC which I used before the developers stoped working on it and take a pandemic nap….

Yeah I switched from MrMc to Infuse because of their ‘better’ support :frowning:

This is still on our radar, but isn’t something we’ve been able to replicate here (even testing with an LG G1).

If you have a chance, can you try replicating this with one of the samples linked above (confirming no sound from LFE) then send in a report from your device (and post the code here)?

I’ll will send the report next week after my holiday break. :+1:

So maybe the implementation of Spatial Audio is related to the HomePod issue?
Any update on this?

And another week went by without any feedback :frowning:

This is still on our radar, but we have not managed to replicate the issue here with a number of different setups. This makes troubleshooting a bit tricky.

Anecdotally, one of my personal setups uses HomePods and the sound is very full (and definitely includes LFE).

Hi James,

Is that a stereo setup with the original HomePods you’ve got?

Can you test the following file:

It is the first file from the following site:

That is Dolby Atmos Amaze demo which has no surround an no bass (especially notice when there is thunder) in Infuse.

Plex and internal Apple player sound rich and bass heavy, in Infuse it sounds dull and no bass.


I think the best video file to test this with is a channel test video. Then there can be no subjective opinion on wether or not the LFE channel is working.

You may want to provide a link to the file you’re referring to since there are some channel test videos that are bogus out there. :wink:
