  1. Xbox One should switch back to Receiver decoding Atmos


    Ever since the Dolby access app, there has been a problem with Dolby Atmos movies for me on Netflix.

    Back awhile ago when the Xbox allowed the receiver to do the decoding it worked perfect.

    In my opinion, don''t fix what ain't broken!!!

    At least the option should still be there, and have the choice of which to use.

    Onkyo TX SR 444 ATMOS

    Apparently dolby atmos will only transfer through hdmi and not optical,i was just wondering whether it is something to do with hdr
    Do you have "let receiver decode audio" enabled in Settings > Disc & Blu Ray > Blu ray?

    And after that go to Settings > Display & Sound and go, under HDMI audio, to Bitstream format and select "Dolby Atmos for home theater".

    After doing this the blue light for Dolby Atmos should be lit on your receiver when it is decoding Dolby Atmos input.

    Dolby Atmos

    I had the exact same problem with my 4k Mockingjay and other movies. I enrolled in the preview program a few months ago just to get Dolby Atmos compatibility with my movie collection. At first the movie played with the Dolby Atmos track without problems,
    but after the last update it stopped working. I quit the program and reset my Xbox One to get the official firmware with final support for Dolby Atmos but it kept showing an error.

    A few days ago I was able to download the Dolby application which as Cpt Chaos 2 says outputs everything as Dolby Atmos. The problem is if I "Let my receiver decode audio" like Xbox support suggests for Atmos to work, then the error keeps showing up even
    though everything else seems to work fine on Dolby Atmos, but if I uncheck the option to let my receiver decode audio it plays all of my BluRay movies without a problem with the dolby atmos light on, on my HW-K950. When I play the movie it sounds like it is
    the actual Atmos track, and in the audio settings "Bitstream out" with Dolby Atmos is on, but the "Let my receiver decode audio" option is off in the BluRay app so I am confused. Is it enough that the XBOX is bitstreaming all the audio out to the Home Theater
    even if the BluRay app has the option to decode audio off? Is my sound system really decoding the Atmos tracks even though the option is off on the BluRay player app but supposedly everything is outputted via the audio settings of the Xbox?

    This is really confusing. I talked to customer service and they had no idea. They dind't even understand what dolby atmos was and told me that the problem must be on my movie collection even though I told them it used to work perfectly on my PS4 before I
    sold it to get 4K and Dolby Atmos support with my Xbox One S.

    I would really appreciate if someone could clarify this, because everytime I activate the "let my receiver decode audio option" on the BluRay app, a lot of my movies without an Atmos track show an error and even some with an Atmos track like Mockingjay don't
    play either. I want to know if the bitstream out option really works on bluray movies even if the option to decode audio by my receiver is off on the bluray settings.

    Note: BTW, I tried something weird, if I start playing Mockingjay with the "Let my receiver decode audio" option on it shows an error, but if I turn it off and it opens without problems, and then turn the decode setting on again, the movie resumes fine with
    the "Let my receiver decode audio" option on.
    Hi,

    I have a similar issue in that my 950 won't output any sound if the "Let my Receiver decode audio" option is on plus the "Atmos (via HDMI ONLY). The only way I can get sound is to turn these two options off. I get good sound and it seems like it's still
    Atmos but no blue light or Atmos message on the 950 display.

    Dolby atmos not working

    Do you have a Dolby Atmos compatible receiver, sound bar, or speaker system? If you do, have you changed the settings within 'Disc & Blu-ray settings' on your Xbox One to enable 'Let my receiver decode audio'? Currently Dolby Atmos is only supported within
    the Blu-ray app for Dolby Atmos compatible Blu-Ray movies.

    Keep us posted!

    Dolby Atmos on the Xbox One S console

    I seriously doubt that will be supported. Sound isn't something you just patch with software, it requires decoders and DACs which is also hardware related.

    I'd assume they went with HDR10 for a reason as even Sony skipped the Dolby Atmos support.
    HDR10 is a video spec. Dolby Vision would be the equivalent video spec. Atmos is an encoding in the audio stream that the receiver would decode. (similar to how Pro Logic worked a long time ago). The reason is doesn't work on the xbox is the xbox decodes
    and sends uncompressed audio to the receiver. For Atmos to work correctly it would need to send the Atmos encoded bitstream to the receiver. This is the crux, they could support this feature on 4k Blu-rays and other video sources, but the audio would have
    to be preencoded with it and the xbox would have to bypass it's internal decoder. The issue with that is that you then lose the mixer, meaning that they cannot add other audio sounds into the stream (like notifications sounds etc.). Ultimately you will probably
    never see a game utilize Atmos, but they may add support for movies.

    Personal opinion, Atmos will be dead in a few years. These crazy niche audio schemes never hang around. DTS and Dolby try new ones every few years, but they never really work for the average consumer. Atmos requires additional speakers or specially purchased
    ones and the vast majority of people don't even have 5.1, and those that do don't generally want to replace/upgrade there speakers that often.
