  1. Broken surround sound with Dolby Atmos

    For the last two or three skip ahead releases, I have noticed that I no longer have any surround sound in apps that I normally would expect to have it. For instance, YouTube TV video on demand content used to contain surround sound for the most part. The Starz and Showtime Anytime apps also. Some content on Netflix that claims to have Dolby Digital 5.1 sound support is also not in surround sound for the past couple of weeks. Has anyone else noticed this? Yes, I did file a report about it. My sound system is Vizio SB36514-G6.

    Atmos Problem

    Dolby Surround is a upscaler from a not atmos source like 5.1 or 2.0 to surround with use of al your speakers like 5.1.2 or higher.

    dts neuralx is the same upscaling system from dts

    You had no problem with atmos, you think you had.

    Now with the new firmware update the xbox one x is a broken thing with netflix

    With a non atmos source the receiver must do the upscaling but now the xbox puts out a 2.0 or 5.1 stream in a atmos package, and no sound is comming out your atmos speakers.

    Xbox one s not using atmos speakers in games

    I also re-installed the dolby acces app. Demo content in the app itself plays sound from my height speakers and the rest of my speakers. I only get this problem when playing games, where only the height speakers are not playing any sound at all.
    It seems that the console and your audio system is properly configured for Dolby Atmos, since the Atmos Demo works.

    Also try to download the free "Insects" demo from Microsoft, which allows you to switch between Dolby Atmos and "regular" surround sound.

    Check if Atmos works in that demo, as the Atmos Demos in the app are usually videos with a fixed, pre-rendered audio track.

    Also, which games are you trying exactly? Do the games really support Dolby Atmos themselves? Because the Xbox One S will not "upscale" regular surround sound from non-Atmos games to have height information.

    Dolby atmos issues

    Yes its now broken with the update, for watching netflix with a real atmos setup 5.1.2.

    The receiver thinks its atmos but its a 5.1 or even a 2.0 stream hidden in a atmos package.

    blu ray works fine atmos is atmos and 5.1 is upscaled by the receiver to dolby surround with use or al your atmos speakers so it must be.

    Using earphones on a wireless remote

    Check that you have fresh batteries in the controller, as the controller turns off some features when the batteries get low to conserve battery power like rumble and headphone sound.

    Also, can you go to the Settings under Display & Sound and check the settings there. If you have set the headset audio to "Dolby Atmos for Headphones", be aware that you need to have PURCHASED the Dolby Atmos for Headphones app.

    If you simply downloaded the Dolby Atmos app for free, you only get a 14 day trial of Dolby Atmos for Headphones. After 14 days, Dolby Atmos for Headphones stops working.

    You can switch to "Windows Sonic for Headphones" to get the same spatial surround sound effect "for free".

    Can't Hear Game Audio or menu sounds through headset

    Is your console enrolled in the Insider Preview Program?

    When you go to the settings under Display&Sound, do you have the console set up to also play game sound through the headphones? If so, do you use any spatial surround modes like Windows Sonic or Dolby Atmos for headphones?

    If you set it to Dolby Atmos for Headphones, did you actually purchase Dolby Atmos for headphones? If not, you could only try Dolby Atmos for headphones for two weeks. So check the settings if the headphones work with Stereo or Windows Sonic.
