    Screen flickering when gaming and Netflix after upgrade to 4K/ Dolby Atmos not working


    I recently upgraded to a 4k sony 75 inch x900f with the sony htz9f soundbar w/wireless sub and rear speakers to use with my xbox one x. I am using all high hdmi cables on each device. The current set up is a hdmi running from arc input on tv to arc input
    on soundbar. I have my cable tv provider as xfinity comcast that i running through the xbox one x via hdmi out on the cable box to the hdmi cable/sat input on the xbox one x. Lastly, i have another hdmi running out of the xbox one x into hdmi #2 on the tv
    which is the best inout according to the booklet and everything i read online. I have updated all the settings on the tv and the xbox to proper settings where i receive all green checkmarks on the 4k details setup screen on the xbox.

    Also i am unable to change the setting to dolby atmos even though all devices are compatible.when i was the cable box its fine, no flcikering. When i switch over to game or watch netflix the flickering starts and its consistent. I’ve read a bunch of troubleshooting
    steps, spoke to microsoft and nothing seems to resolve the issues. Microsoft suggested a factory reset but thats the last thing i want to do. Well second last because i dont want to return the tv and soundbar either.

    I know others experienced similiar issue so i was wondering if anyone knows how to fix both or either issue. Thanks

    :)

    Xbox One X 4k Blu Ray Won't Play Dolby Atmos

    My Xbox One X will not play Dolby Atmos when using a Blu Ray disk, but Dolby Atmos games and the Dolby Atmos app work fine.

    I recently purchased "Coco" on 4k Blu Ray and it will pass a Dolby Atmos signal to my Onkyo TX-RZ900. My receiver is Atmos capable, and works fine with Atmos games such as Gears of War or the Dolby Atmos app.

    I have tried changing every setting I think of and clear the blu ray cache, and still nothing.

    Hello jcm04tb!

    Thanks for reaching out to the forums with this situation. I understand you're having a bit of an issue playing 4k and Dolby ATMOS off of your Xbox One is that correct? You may want to contact the manufacturer of your Television to find out if they have
    more information about their products compatibility. Take a look at these helpful support articles: Troubleshooting 4K and HDR on Xbox
    One X and Xbox One S.


    or
    HDR on Xbox One X and Xbox One S


    I would also suggest a restore to factory defaults but start off with "Keep My Games & Apps" option. That way you don't have to erase you're games or apps. (keep in mind you will need your Microsoft account email and password to recover your profile after
    the reset.)

  5. When you say you “updated all the settings” does that mean you’ve got the most up to date firmware on the tv?
