Hi all. I have my Sonos Beam connected to a Sony 55x850d through it’s single HDMI ARC port. The Beam is connected to two Sonos One, running 5.0 surround sound (no SUB). I am able to get Dolby Digital 5.1 through certain apps (Netflix) running directly through the TV, but not through my XBox One X. The XBox only transmits stereo, whether I am running games or playing movies.
I have the audio settings on the Xbox set to transmit 5.1 uncompressed. Do I have a setting wrong?
How do I get 5.1 from the Xbox to work?

set the XBox to send Bitstream audio via HDMI, and set the Bitstream format to Dolby Digital
