As long as your TV has HDMI eARC, you should be able to get Dolby Atmos audio from an Apple TV 4K.

Connect the Apple TV 4K to one of the other HDMI ports on the TV. In the audio settings of the Apple TV, set Change Format to OFF and under Immersive Audio, make sure Dolby Atmos is ON.

On your TV’s audio settings, set eARC to AUTO, Digital Audio Out to AUTO 1, Dolby Digital Plus Output to DOLBY DIGITAL PLUS, and Passthrough to AUTO.

Hello GuitarSuperstar,

Thanks for the quick feedback and supportive response.

Are you familiar with recent Sony Bravia tv’s and where I could find these settings?

They should be found under your TV’s audio or HDMI settings. It could be under “Display & Sound”.

GuitarSuperstar,

so if I understand correctly, the Apple TV 4K can be connected via a normal HDMI while the connection between TV and Sonos Arc via eArc…correct ?
