Playback of content that outputs as Atmos when using the ATV4K is reporting DD+ on my 2018 Denon AVR-X3500H.
It is not an AVR or ARC/eARC limitation as the exact same configuration outputs Atmos with all other Atmos enabled built in Apps, which suggests it is definitely a current Apple TV App limitation.
But it has to be said, using the Denon with DD+ and the Dolby Surround upmixer enabled to give a faux Atmos effect works very well as a compromise for now.
just bought a 65 C9 this morning and it will be arriving tomorrow...I am upgrading from a 55eg9100 ...Will I have that "WOW" factor I originally had when I first experienced OLED technology when i bought the 55eg9100 a couple years ago?
Got it THX. Search didn't work but....I had to actually pick a show to watch and then select Apple TV. It then brought up the install screen. Guess it is still sorta hidden or beta for LG.I had to manually search for it, to find it.

There isn’t a 77” B9, only 65 and 55 inch screensI watched it using the Fox App on Apple TV with the 77” B9 and thought it was marginal. Some of that was due to the B9.
The B9 appears to have logo luminance on by default. It created shadows around the score on the lower screen and the Fox logo on the top left. I didn’t figure out until today that LG did that.
With Dolby Vision on, the picture wasn’t as sharp and the reds were pronounced. The 49er jerseys jumped out while other colors did not. With Dolby Vision off, the picture was more detailed, but the reds were nasty and I didn’t have time to work on that.
Overall with Dolby Vision the B9 had a more subdued PQ. Excellent blacks but not as life like. I prefer my 65” B8.
My guess is I should have ponied up for the C9.
Do u know a way to access service menu with an iphone? Or I need to buy a separate remote like the one in the picture?
So I just rechecked, and what you say correct in some content, but not on others.Are you sure you’re getting DD+? I’m only seeing regular DD, with my C9 and Denon X4500H. Is the “+” your seeing on the display just from the fact that you’re using the Dolby surround up mixer as well? I.E. DD + DSur vs. DD+ + DSur

I think what he meant is that the IR emitter is not required.
I was surprised. I stopped using ATV years ago. And AirPlay2 is "less than stellar" - it works, but that's the best thing I can say about it. I'm not a content junkie, so Netflix and Amazon + plain ol' cable is more than enough for me.You sound surprised, why's that? The iTunes Store does indeed have a lot of 4K content even with Dolby Vision. Plus the quality is usually better compared to Netflix and Amazon Prime since Apple uses about double the video bitrate. However, none of the content is free and you usually have to pay around $10 for a blockbuster movie.
None of this is news, you could play any iTunes video via AirPlay 2 before in the same quality as you get it now via the AppleTV app. Dolby Atmos didn't / doesn't work via AirPlay 2 either btw.
The only real new thing is that you can now buy iTunes content directly via your LG TV. And, of course, you no longer have to use a controlling iOS/MacOS device to start playing content.
Curious why so many folks are interested in accessing the service menu. There isn't all that much that can (or should) be performed in the service menu, other than disabling the auto brightness limiter which is only meant to be disabled during calibration. I mean, it isn't like my old Samsung KS9800 where there were hidden picture modes that could be activated. I further understand that because the European models do not display usage data (like the US model does via the user interface, non-service menu). So again, outside of those two items, what is the point/rationale from wanting to access the service menu?I think what he meant is that the IR emitter is not required.
I haven’t found a way with an iPhone to enter the service menu yet. It may be possible with the Sure Universal Remote App which uses commands over IP, but I gave up on that as it is extremely limited in functionality over the Android version of the same app. With this in mind, I highly doubt it.
Various Android Apps allow access to the service menus either with IR or IP control though.
Failing that, an LG service remote, or many programmable remotes work fine, such as a Harmony.
Again, I add my cautionary disclaimer that entering the service menu is done at your own risk!!!
