Speaking of Xbox, I've been struggling to get Xbox to play on the rear speakers for 5.1 content when using Bitstream Out - Atmos. I used to have the prior model before the N950 (K950) which was 5.1, and when I had Xbox turned on to Atmos, it would truly sound like Atmos with sound coming from both the upfiring and rear speakers even if I was playing 5.1 content. I used to think the issue was with how the additional side speakers were configured, and once the Dolby Atmos Upmixing feature would be available on the Xbox, it would solve my issue. However, this new feature is available on the Beta channel which I am on, and still no luck. With or without the upmix on, rears are completely silent on most content unless it is an Atmos enabled game. As soon as I switch the Xbox to DD mode, then the rears come alive. I hate having to switch the sound mode on the Xbox each time I want to switch from 5.1 to 7.1 to Atmos, but it seems like that's the only way it works. I was wondering if anyone else is familiar with this issue and knows how to fix it. It's a shame since the HW-K950 sounded amazing with the Atmos setting always on because I thought the fake "Atmos" actually sounded very good with that combo. N950 is great for everything else, but doesn't work super well with the Xbox.
Xbox -> N950 -> LG B6
