I am trying another thing now. A manual update of my A4kTV's software from 15.1.1 to 15.2.
I bought a new 4K aTV and have watched at least one D+ movie in Atmos and tested one other. So I don't think it's that specifically.There is a significant thread on the AVS forum in which people suggested Disney is reducing the bitrate of their output so Atmos doesn't reach us (but, these are year-old posts). A lot of these complaints are from overseas. And many of these complaints speculate its a Covid lockdown thing. But the thread died...leading me to think this has not been a problem since then.
I would temporarily try a different HDMI input to see if you can replicate the same problem.Can't find anything out of the ordinary.
I have the Apple 4k TV hooked up to HDMI 4 (Game). HDMI is the only input source possible. It allows you to check the input to make sure you've got the correct device connected to the correct input (which it obviously is)...and that's about it. It seems pretty straight-forward (and fool proof). But, then again, I might just be a fool in this situation...
My Denon displays "Multi-in", too, with the ATV4K. I do not have any height speakers (still on my "to do" list).Also make sure you didn’t accidentally disable your atmos height speakers in your receiver. My Denon reported “Multi In” from my Apple TV 4K before I hooked up and enabled my Atmos bounce speakers.
I moved the Apple 4k TV cable into a different HDMI input and...voila! I was quickly able to get Atmos to appear on BOTH Disney+ and Paramount+.I would temporarily try a different HDMI input to see if you can replicate the same problem.
So the moral of the story is there's something wrong with that particular HDMI input on my receiver. Who woulda thunk it?
