I’m interested in purchasing an Arc but have read several reviews wherein owners of certain Samsung TVs are having issues with compatibility. I have a 2019 65” Q80 TV. It has no eArc HDMI port, but does have an Arc HDMI port. Are there issues I should be aware of and can I be assured that I can experience ATMOS?

As I posted earlier, you should be able to get Dolby Atmos from your TV’s native Netflix and Prime Video apps. But apps like YouTube TV, Tubi, and Crackle are limited to stereo audio only. The music streaming apps also play in stereo. Other apps that support Dolby Atmos are Disney+, Apple TV+, VUDU, and HBO Max, but you may not get Atmos audio from these apps because it is not yet supported on your TV.
As far as the other issues Samsung owners have experienced with the Arc, many have fixed their issues with firmware updates and patches.
