I know different versions of this question have already been asked, but I wanted to ask the community about my specific situation. I pre-ordered the Arc 5.1 system which I plan to plug into a Samsung J6300 (2015, HDMI ARC only) TV which streams video from an Apple TV HD (non-4K). The user manual for my TV says it supports Dolby Digital Plus through ARC. Can you presume what level of audio will be playing through my home theater setup?
EDIT: for clarification, will the Arc be playing Atmos, Dolby Digital Plus, or just Dolby Digital 5.1?

According to rtings.com that TV can do DD 5.1 over ARC, which is surprising given its an old Samsung and they are famous for issues in that area. Doesn’t say anything about DD+.
Atmos is challenging from an Apple TV on any TV on any transport, though until someone has one to actually try it is hard to tell if it will work or not.
