If I put a Blu-ray or 4K UHD disc in the player I get DTS-MA and ATMOS, but not when I connect an external drive to the USB port in front.
Using front USB Harddrive
I made a mistake in the order in the previous post,
this is the correct order within the mkv :
2) DD5.1 - AC-3 -----> default track flag --> Yes - Forced Track Flag --> No
3) ATMOS -----> default track flag --> Determine automatically - Forced Track Flag --> No
In this order you don't get the "unsupported media" message anymore
(Probably because the DD5.1 track is the first audio track
the UBD-K8500 sees and therefore doesn't give the message )
Also in this case, the DD5.1 is the standard track, but as it starts playing you immediately get the ATMOS track
( don't ask me why, LOL ) Even if you switch the track to the ATMOS track with the remote, nothing happens and if you then switch back to the DD5.1 track nothing happens as well.
So basically you have 2 tracks, but it plays only one of them (The ATMOS track)
Too bad the blue ATMOS light doesn't light up on my HW-K950 and also no ATMOS message on the display.
But it's definitely ATMOS sound, all upfiring speakers work.
