I have the following setup:
-Sony X950G with eArc output
-Apple TV 4K
-Sonos Arc with two Sonos Ones 5.1 setup and sonos boost
So my problem is, whenever I play dolby atmos content on apple tv, the center channel sound on sonos arc shifts back and forth to sonos ones, which is quite disturbing. Its like sonos arc is incapable of handling the atmos content, gives up and all sound is coming from sonos ones for few seconds and then suddenly arc picks up the sound again.
Non Dolby Atmos content plays just fine.
Anyone has any idea what’s going on!? I haven’t been able to enjoy Atmos content for once since I have bought this sonos arc in August.

Guys, this problem is not from Sonos Arc, it is Netflix app in ATV4K. I have the same thing happening too. It happens more when the internet connection bandwidth fluctuates. That’s why it happens more in the evening at home for me when every neighbour are streaming heavily. Try to note whether it happens with you too when the traffic slows down.
I am using Nvidia Shield to stream Netflix, everything else, I prefer the ATV4K for its Content Matching feature. Hopefully Netflix will fix that in cooperation with Apple.
This is an example thread that happened end of last year, before the Arc even exists in the market:
