Not full Dolby Atmos with USB and VLC
I have all the Dolby demo discs on a USB and I have noticed that when I play them through my Xbox X via the VLC app there is absolutly no audio coming from my rear heights. It essentially is making my 5.1.4 system like a 5.1.2. This is the case on all the demos. The front heights and all the other speakers work just fine and Dolby atmos shows on the NAD. I have isolated this to the Xbox X and/or the VLC.
1. The same USB demos play on ALL the speakers (all 4 heights) when played through my NVIDIA shield.
2. Blu rays that are atmos play on all the speakers as well on the same XBOX X.
The reason I don’t just play it all on the Shield is because the shield doesn’t properly display any of the titles or icon pics of the USB files and also the XBOX for some reason is louder/more dynamic sound with the demos even though they don’t include the rear height pair. (I know it doesn’t seem it should be a different sound but I confirmed through dozens of back and fourth between the devices back to back with different files)
Does anyone know why this would be the case (no sound from rear heights on VLC app) or how to fix and also why the Xbox plays louder/more dynamic bass etc then the shield from the same USB with the same volume on receiver?
