LG‘s strange Tonemapping when playing LPCM 5.1

Sooo i discovered something and maybe someone can help me out.

2 Examples:
1. you play 5.1 Content on an Apple TV it will be decoded as LPCM 5.1. So when you hook up the ATV to an LG Soundbar like the new SN11RG ALL of the 5 Channels are coming from the Soundbar (LEFT CENTER RIGHT, LEFT Side, RIGHT Side) see the picture below. The Rears wont get any sound.

2. you play the same content on the ATV and connect it to the Samsung Q90r, 3 Channels are coming out of the Soundbar (LEFT CENTER RIGHT) and 2 Channels out of the Rears.

So now it gets really weird. When you hook up your Apple TV to a LG CX and the CX via Earc to the Samsung Soundbar, you will get like in the first example all of the 5 channels out of the Soundbar.

My conclusion is that LG is handeling LPCM different then other Manufactors. Does someone know why?
