Hi all,

I’m about to buy an LG CX and a Sonos beam 3.1 Soundbar to go with it. I’m learning that Netflix and other streaming apps use Dolby digital plus. The Sonos beam only accepts Dolby digital, so the DD+ from Netflix needs to be downcoverted by the TV to DD to pass 5.1 sound to the Sonos beam. Could anyone tell me if the LG will do that? It’s an issue for me as my hearing isn’t too good so I need the central channel to work for dialogue, which would not be possible if the setup just downmixes to 2.1.

Yes. I have the CX and a HK Enchant soundbar that only accepts DD. The TV transcodes to DD+ from my Roku and from the internal streaming apps into DD before sending to the bar. This works over HDMI ARC and optical.
