I have a Sony X900F and i’m considering buying a new atmos soundbar. The bar will need to be hooked up via the ARC port on the TV. I’m aware ARC doesn’t support lossless codecs but it should handle EAC-3 Atmos (netflix etc).
My questions are as follows.
If i were to play an EAC-3 Atmos file in infuse, would the audio be bit-streamed in DD+ container or is it output as PCM MAT 2.0?
Does the audio setting in the apple tv system settings have any impact for this use case scenario (‘auto’ v ‘dolby digital’)?
Can Infuse transcode TrueHD Atmos to EAC-3 and retain Atmos metadata.
I’m asking because i dont believe the X900F can passthrough PCM MAT 2.0 so an atmos soundbar may be pointless. As i said, it has to be connected over ARC due to a minimalist installation.
