    In digital legacy you'll hear true 5.1 surround sound if you play on amazon prime video or netflix. In Pcm you won't hear any proper surround effects. Oneplus should give more audio settings in tv. While on youtube my RT3 dont play all speaker at same time until i manually select PCM setting. :(

    The audio settings available are sufficient enough if they work as intended. An auto switch between Dolby to Pcm mode is to be made possible in Auto and Passthrough which is not happening right now.

    Yes Exactly venky bro. As per content or application this should change it self but not working now. I tried two different HT systems. 😅 For youtube, and non 5.1 supported app it should be working as pcm

    I am trying to connect Boat Avante 1190 sound bar using the ARC to OnePlus Q1 but no luck. It connects with Bluetooth but not with hdmi. I also chose hdmi arc as sound out in tv settings but still no luck. Please help. Do I need something in between like an amplifier ?

    Try changing the cable. For arc you need high quality hdmi cables.

    Using a good HDMI helped me get audio output from my HT. Just confirm if your HT Supports ARC if connected to HDMI ARC the HDMI ARC +/- is displayed on tv when volume of tv is increased or decreased.

    Purchased a new hdmi arc cable, works sometimes and sometimes no sound, don’t know if something is wrong with tv or sound bar or cable. Too confused.

    My LG Soundbar is connected via HMDI AR. Tv is disconnecting with soundbar automatically and TV remote is working to increase/decrease of sound. Can any one help me in this. I tried with samsung HT i faced the same problem.

    Should be mostly to do with the HDMI cable... Can you change it and check?

    OnePlus Q1 is the tv and boat avante 1190 sound bar.

    Both have been checked by their respective service centre guys and both are in good shape. However oneplus guy reverted to old update of tv and it worked for some time. But then after few minutes TV stopped again producing sound via HDMI ARC to Boat sound bar. I have checked with 4 different good quality HDMI cables as per suggestions in the forum but nothing helped. This is really frustrating when you have spent 70K and nothing works as expected. Seems like the TV software is no good and need to be updated by Oneplus team. How do they roll out even without checking all the functions and leave it to consumers only. Bluetooth is also terrible and there's breaking sound all the time even when the sound-bar is just below the TV.

    Can it work normally when the sound output is set to ARC (PCM) output?
