No "Audio Output" settings on V6? Is that correct?

On V5, there was the option of “Auto” or “Passthrough” in the Audio Out options but I notice this is not available on V6. Is this correct? How does it handle the audio DTS HD? My amp (Sony STR-DN1080) is just showing LPCM.

I am using an ATV 4K.

Apple killed passthrough post tvOS 11.3. The option was removed because it didn’t do anything anymore and was confusing end users.

How is the audio handled? Will my amp always just show LPCM?

Yes, since LPCM is an uncompressed (lossless) format, you will always get the best quality available to you.

A bit more info on how this works can be found here.

got my answer.

You would need to use a version earlier than 11.3, but AFAIK Apple does not allow the tvOS software to be downgraded.

Thanks James.
