Dolby Atmos and Plex Apps.
I am trying to play my Dolby Atmos files from my Drobo 5N, but am unable to find a workaround.
I understand that my LG TV cannot pass the Dolby Atmos information currently through the ARC of the HDMI, so the built in TV Plex app isn't viable for this purpose.
I have my Playstation Pro passing through the AV to my Onkyo AV Switcher, and that passes the Dolby Atmos through fine on Blu Rays that have it encoded (by pressing option when playing and choosing bitstream) and the sound is incredible.
By this token I thought if I installed Plex on my Playstation Pro that it would be able to stream the Dolby Atmos from my NAS to my Onkyo, but it's only showing up as 7.1 or True HD audio and I'm not getting the 5.1.2 Atmos output to my AMP. The connections are all HDMI 2.0 and 4k and HDR pass through perfectly to my Onkyo and to my LG 4k TV.
I have the latest (manually installed) Plex software running on my NAS, and to be honest it works like a dream, so much better than the previous version that Drobo have to auto install, my 3D films and FLAC files play like a dream off it.
Is there another option to get the Dolby Atmos to my Amp from these files?
(I am a lifetime Plex Pass member so am hopefully using the best and latest version of whatever software.)
