Sony A1 and sonos arc

  • 8 April 2023

I have just attached my new Sonos arc to my Sony A1e and the only audio input I see on the arc is Stereo pcm. I have tried testing films from both an Apple TV plugged into the Sony tv and the Netflix app on the Sony tv but I get the same result . I know the Sony only has ARC, not eARC, but I would have expected to at least get Dolby digital into the  Arc. Any ideas what connections or settings I can try?

Set the TV to these settings (if available):

Digital Audio Out: Auto 1

Dolby Digital Plus Output: Dolby Digital Plus

Pass Through Mode: Auto


And set the Apple TV to this audio setting:

Change Format: OFF

If this setting doesn’t work, set Change Format to ON and set the Audio Format to Dolby Digital 5.1.

Hi thanks man, that’s worked by changing to the format ON setting- thanks so much!
