I do NOT get Atmos from Amazon on Roku Ultra. I have no idea why not. Jack Ryan is an Atmos title and my Denon AVR says DD +.
I do NOT get Atmos from Netflix. I think Netflix is very particular about which devices it supports with Atmos?
I DO get Atmos from Vudu...some titles work, some titles don't. I haven't figured out why some do and some don't. The ones that don't my AVR says DD +.
It has been frustrating but I do not fault the Roku Ultra.
Anyone have other thoughts?
I've had no issues on my Apple TV 4K with Atmos on either Amazon, Netflix, or Vudu.
