Looking to enhance the sound in my back (L/R) speakers more specifically the dialog. Sort of, like you can with the Music under 'Room Settings>[Room]>Advanced Audio>Surround Settings>Music Playback'.
Sonos 5.1 - Playbar, Sub, and x2 Play:1.
TV: Samsung UN55KU6290 (6 series 4K; yes its a 'black Friday tv'..)
TV Audio Format: 'Dolby Digital'
Sonos App Audio In: 'Dolby Digital 5.1'
Sonos 'TV Level': 3/4 to max
Decided to go wireless so I got rid of my older Pioneer system (which was great) and went with Sonos. Mainly got Sonos because they connected to my Smart Home and secondly I heard the speakers individually prior to purchasing and they were great. **One of the things I noticed immediately after setting up my new system, was that when I watched something on Netflix (TV app) the dialog only comes through the Playbar and very little sound comes through the back speakers (music and some ambient noises). When I first installed my Pioneer system it did the same thing but my receiver had a ton of settings so all I needed to do was set it to Surround Sound with Ext[reme] Power and it would enhance the dialog and allow some of it to pass to the rear speakers all while keeping the Surround Sound experience.
So this when I began searching online for answers. Some people said change the 'Music Playback' to 'Full' but that doesn't change anything for the TV. I also disconnected the speakers, reconnected them, and re tuned them. I adjusted the 'TV Level' which does enhance it a little but the dialog remains only from the Playbar.
***Is there some setting I'm missing? If not, could this be something Sonos is looking to add (more HT settings)?
I have more questions about HDMI/Audio switches for my Xbox One X setup but I will do more research before I dive into that...

If you're insistent on getting dialogue from all speakers you can unbind from the 5.1 setup and just group them all together. But you'll get the entire soundtrack being blasted out from all speakers at the same time, and that is most certainly not surround sound.
