Playbar / LG TV / Netflix (Dolby) issue: Subtle, regular clicks/glitches from Playbar watching Netflix with Dolby sound

I’ve noticed this problem on certain Netflix shows and it seems related to Dolby (Atmos). I know I can’t get Atmos to the Playbar due to its optical connection and I’m perfectly happy with the sound other than this subtle, but annoying, issue. 

Any suggestions?

Aswell as checking the TV is using the latest firmware/software, have you tried changing each of the devices involved in the HT setup to all output Dolby Digital 5.1 rather than perhaps leaving them set on ‘auto’ audio output to ensure any Atmos aspect plays no role in the TV sound out. Maybe that might solve your issue🤔?
