  1. Change your Sound Out to HDMI ARC
  2. Go to All Settings -> Sound -> Additional Settings and turn on eARC.
  3. Under All Settings -> Sound -> Additional Settings -> Digital Sound Out select “Pass Through”

If you want Atmos from streaming services it comes through DD+ so you wouldn't even need eArc. Just make sure you've set it to passthrough and that you've selected a film that has an atmos soundtrack.

There are several shows I watch that come across as Dolby Atmos.  I'm at my winter home now and don't have Sonos here, but I know The Mandalorian is one of them.  That TV is an older LG OLED so I use a HDFury Arcana in that system.

I am getting DD+ after applying your suggested settings but still no dolby atmos😌pls suggest some more ideas…

thanks for all support.

You could ask Netflix in your country. Good to hear that it does work.

None of the titles you mentioned are available on Netflix in the US other than Money Heist, and this title is not in Dolby Atmos.

Make sure you see the Dolby Atmos logo next to the title, and make sure you choose the English audio track. Most Dolby Atmos titles have the Atmos audio on the English or original language track only.

You can also log in to your Netflix account on a web browser and make sure the Playback Settings under your Profile is set to HIGH.

Prime Video has very limited Dolby Atmos titles. The only Atmos titles that I am aware of is Jack Ryan, The Tomorrow War, Suspiria, and Carnival Row.
