I was a bit surprised myself.
The Disney+ app on my 2016 LG OLED is only sending stereo. The LG feeds a Denon 4300 through optical. Looking at the Denon's Info overlay, it's coming in with just two channels active.
The 900e feeds a Marantz 1608, also through optical, and the Marantz front panel say DolbyDig + Dolby Surr (my Dolby Surround upmixer so all speakers are fed). The Info overlay shows DD 5.1 coming in.
I don't understand why mine would work and other people are only getting stereo. I don't remember doing anything special or specific in the audio setup, but I'll have a look this evening when I get home.
As an aside, I rarely use the built-in apps on either set; the room with the 900e has a 2nd Gen Amazon Fire box, and the room with the LG has a new Amazon 4K Fire stick, and I usually stream using those.
Although I did notice that the 'stereo only' app on the LG seems to have a greater bit depth than the Fire Stick - when the blue grad Disney opening screen loads on the Fire Stick app, I'm seeing the transitions on the grad, which normally indicates 8 bit, whereas the LG's internal app is smooth, which usually indicates 10 bit (or better). I haven't paid a lot of attention to the 900e's app loading.
