Have lossless codecs ever worked when the source is your drive connected using USB? Manuals usually describe what formats are supported over each type of interface.

DTS Master - True HD? Those are two different codecs. Which is it?

Does this happen with all such tracks or just one?

You may need to do a factory reset.

One of the two devices will negotiate both the audio and video connections with the source. If it's the TV, you'll likely end up with stereo audio since that's all most sets support. What are you...

What does the AVR display say about the audio format it is receiving and the number of channels?

Yes, PLIIx expands stereo and 5.1 sources to 7.1. It cannot be engaged when the source content is already 7.1. But, a coax or optical bitstream cannot be anything more than 5.1. So, PLIIx should...

I don't get the issue here. Optical and digital coax do not support 7.1. If the source is set to bitstream, the most it can do is DD 5.1 or DTS.

The OP says he cannot apply PLIIx or Neo:6,...

What does your AVR report about the number of channels it is getting from the XBONE when it is set to bitstream? If it reports getting 5.1, is there actually sound in all the channels?

And, no,...

It is unclear to me whether your setup is 5.1 or 7.1. PLII is used to expand stereo content to 5.1. When the source is already 5.1, PLII does nothing.

PLIIx is only available with 7.1 systems...

It doesn't matter if you aren't sending audio from the TV to the soundbar. That's the only purpose of ARC. Video to the TV is the same no matter what input you use.

No. I recommend attaching both your devices to the soundbar with HDMI and then connecting the soundbar to the TV, also with HDMI. The bar will process the sound and send the video to the TV.

Your receiver should report how many channels it is getting from the player.

I think you are out of luck. The HDMI on the sound system is just an output. You have no digital inputs, just analog stereo. If the TV had ARC, you might be able to user it to feed DD 5.1 the...

And your streaming device had to support DD+ on Netflix. Not all do. Plus, while DD+ can do 7.1, you went often find it.

If the boss side of the splitter is for 5.1, then he can probably still use HDMI for video to the TV. The analog audio will be stereo.
