Cannot hear all the sounds using ARC HDMI on Onkyo receiver

I've connected a Samsung smart TV to an Onkyo receiver via an HDMI cable. The HDMI output on the receiver is going to HDMI 2 (ARC) on the TV. I did this so I could listen to the audio from the TV apps (Netflix, etc.). I've got two speakers connected to the receiver.

I've got it so that I can hear the audio when I am watching Netflix but not all the sounds. E.g. I can hear the music but not the people talking. What should I be doing to fix this issue?

Device details:
TV model: Samsung UN75H6350A
Receiver: Onkyo HT-R2295

Thanks,
aul

More than likely a DD 5.1 signal is being passed and as 85% of the dialog is passed to the center speaker, without a center speaker, you hear no dialog. Disable Dolby Digital on the TV so only a stereo signal is passed.

Per usual, JD is right. I was imagining some much more complex problem. My brain must be in "unduly complicate all problems" mode today. JD, how do I reset my brain?
