eARC rolled out it looks like!!!
I haven't read through recent posts, just wanted to pop on and mentioned what happened. I fired up El Camino on the native Q90r Netflix app to finally give it a watch. Audio runs through my 2019 Marantz 6014 AVR. Suddenly in the scene when Pinkman is in the cage in the ground one of the other characters comes to talk to him. HOLY HELL was I surprised when it came out of my Atmos Channels. Well imagine my surprise. Looks like eARC is running with ATMOS pass-through. I will admit to giving up a little hope that it would happen.
While this isn't the best ATMOS sound track ever, since it's a low key film, it is one nice way to be told an update went through with a sudden vertical shift in the sound design to match the scene. Just awesome. The sound is indeed nice. The picture on that film is just superb BTW. a great showpiece for this TV.
Love it. If I'm late to the party on this, apologies.
