Just got Beam gen 2, the effects and music is okay but the speech volume is very low when it comes to atmos

Using eARC.

The LG Nano956NA speakers ( speech ) sounds much better than arc at volume level 20 - 30 while Beam sound 50 to 80.

I m android user so dont have that trueplay options.

I tried loudness enabled and disabled didnt see much difference,

Speech enhancement is enabled.

Bar is in bedroom so not even in a open space.


Sadly i can only use TV spakers and HDMI arc individually to use tv speakers i need to switch sound  bar ro optical digial out adapter

Any suggestions what i m doing wrong ?

Be sure the TV is set to these settings:

HDMI Input Audio Format: Bitstream

Digital Sound Output: Pass Through

eARC Support: On


Are you streaming from the TV’s native apps or from an external media device?

 Nvidia shield tv

I dont use native tv apps 


Earc is already enabled

I have updated digital sound out from auto to pass through 

Hdmi input is set to bitstream

On the Nvidia Shield, set the Available Formats setting to AUTO and Dolby Processing to OFF.

Let me know if the Pass Through setting on the TV makes any difference. If not, I recommend borrowing an iOS device from a friend or family member and performing Trueplay tuning. It only needs to be done once.


 SELECT FORMATS is set to auto.

Dont see dolby processing.

Sadly no iphones, mainly its android users

Pass through didnt make any changes.
