Noob with 3100es and 65 inch A1E Sony Tv
Hi. I’m very new to the audio department and just bought my 3100es receiver to go along with my Sony A1E tv to go ahead and get a full theater feel. So I bought 6 of the SSCS3 Sony towers to go around ( front L R, side L R, and rear L R) a Sony SSCS8 Center speaker, and 2 Sony SACS9 subwoofers. All connected with 14 gauge banana plugged speaker wire ran from the walls on top of attic to speaker positions in the living room.
Now that you have an idea of my setup, I’m curious on how I’m supposed to see if I’m getting Dolby Atmos as I’m only seeing the options that are built in receiver ( neural X, Dolby surround, multi channel stereo, auto format decoding A.F.D, 2 channel direct, 2 channel stereo) but there’s no Dolby Atmos option. I currently set it to Dolby surround. But everytime I change to TV Netflix I see a Dolby digital 5.1 3/ 2.1 flash across receiver screen before stating on my selected sound field ( usually Dolby surround ) I also don’t see Dolby Atmos on Netflix movies that support it. I mostly see only 5.1 next to those movies. I would think I’d at least see 7.1. It seems that maybe I don’t see Dolby Atmos on those movies as something is not letting it know my receiver carries it. Idk. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I really don’t know much about this yet
Right now I have my tv directly connected to directV with its built in client. I have only 1 hdmi going from tv to receiver (ARC). I have my Sony UBP X800 4K blu ray and xbox 1 X directly connected via hdmi to receiver.
My settings are as followed. Receiver SPEAKER SETUP Auto Calibration, automatic phase matching AUTO, calibration type ENGINEER , speaker pattern 7.1, surround speaker position BACK , Speaker relocation OFF
Receiver AUDIO SETUP= digital legato linear AUTO 2,sound optimizer NORMAL, sound field DOLBY SURROUND, pure direct OFF, dual mono MAIN , dynamic range compressor OFF , Neural X option is shaded so I can click on it to adjust. Software version 1.024
sound mode STANDARD, digital audio out volume MAX, Dolby dynamic range: STANDARD or compressed,MPEG audio level set to max, he-aac dynamic range: standard or COMPRESSED,he-aac audio level set to -1, Dolby digital plus output: Dolby digital or DOLBY DIGITAL PLUS
The CAP words are the current settings I have selected
If anyone has any advice or which settings would be the best or how to get the Dolby Atmos feel, it’s greatly appreciated.
