    Using Xbox one with 4.1ch Soundbar


    Hi all,

    I am totally confuses with all the internet sites and forums and have been overload with info. I'm hoping if I post a direct question here I will get some help.

    I have the Fidelio 4.1ch Sound-bar connected as follows to my Xbox one. Xbox one HDMI to Sound- bar to HDMI (ARC) TV. What do I set the Xbox HDMI audio to?

    Stereo Uncompressed- Shows on my sound-bar as "PCM"

    5.1 uncompressed- Shows on my sound-bar as "PCM"

    Bitstream out- DTS Digital Surround- Shows on my sound-bar as "DTS"

    Bitstream out -Dolby Digital- Shows on my sound-bar as "Dolby"

    Whats the difference.

    My other question is if I select "Bitstream out- Dolby Digital", if I play a Blu-ray film and it has 5.1 DTS on the back of the case, do I need to go in to my settings again and change to "Bitstream out- DTS"

    Thanks for your help.

    Eddie.

    :)

  2. LG B7A, LG SK8Y, Xbox One X audio sync issues

    I got the xbox one x connected directly to the TV then TV to soundbar all

    through HDMI using ARC to the soundbar. When Dolby digital or Dolby

    Atmos is selected there is a audio sync issue and cannot correct this with AV Sync Adjustment.

    This soundbar doesn't support 4K-passthrough apparently. Otherwise I only get 1080p if I was to connect the xbox to soundbar.

    However when switching to DTS Digital Surround this issue is resolved. I am

    using premium certified HDMI's. Which leads me to believe there is some issues with the ATMOS and Xbox from reading other peoples experience.

    Is another update possibly in the works to resolve this?

    No digital via HDMI ARC

    [quote user="iiiNeURoTiC"]

    Hi All,

    I get Digital Audio via my Opitcal to Px4 headset, however using HDMI I can only get stereo?

    Setup is as follows.

    Xbox One -> HDMI -> Samsung TV ARC -> HDMI -> Samsung Soundbar

    Anyone have any tips on how to get this working? or should this work at all?

    [/quote]
    This doesn't look right to me (i could be wrong) Xbox One -> HDMI -> Samsung TV ARC -> HDMI -> Samsung Soundbar
    Should be....
    Xbox One -> HDMI -> Samsung Soundbar (must be a ARC compatible soundbar with the correct HDMI sockets in/out) -> HDMI -> Samsung TV ARC / Headset optical -> Samsung Soundbar change setting on xbox

    Dolby atmos

    The hdmi in port on the Xbox One is for plugging in TV boxes, not for plugging in soundbars, as the signal goes in, not out. Your best bet is to use a optical spdif cable from the Xbox to your soundbar, if your soundbar supports optical spdif.

    N1 soundbar not turning off.

    The power to the N1 Soundbar is in no way related to the power to the Xbox One console. If you want the Soundbar off when you turn your console off, you will just have to do this manually. If it automatically turns it back on, just unplug the Soundbar when
    you're not using it.

    HDMI Audio & Optical Audio

    Have you tried using an optical cable from your TV back to the Soundbar? Connect your Xbox One via HDMI to your HDTV then use an optical cable from your HDTV to your Soundbar. Does that work?

    Can I connect Xbox one direct to soundbar via optical cable?

    If you have a Kinect attached to your Xbox One (Xbox One uses the Kinect as an IR blaster), just go to the Xbox One Settings, select "Display & Sound," then select "Set up TV & AV Control" and choose "Audio Receiver." Your soundbar model may not be listed,
    so choose "other" (or whatever the option is for brands not listed - I can't remember the wording), type the brand name of your soundbar into the field, then follow the on-screen directions.

    If you do not have or use a Kinect, you might try the suggestions at the Xbox Support article located

    here
    .

    I've connected my soundbar via optical cable as you are wanting to do (I do have a Kinect), and Xbox One is able to control the volume and power to the soundbar.

    I want to control volume on my XBox One remote control. My Soundbar (Bose) is connected by HDMI to my TV Sharp. What setting do I need to choose?

    Thank you for contact us! I'm Anderson, an Independent Consultant and a Microsoft user like you.

    Good afternoon

    First, make sure your Xbox One is connected to your TV via HDMI.

    Next, connect your Bose Soundbar to your TV using an HDMI cable.

    On your Sharp TV, go to the audio settings menu and select "HDMI Audio Output."

    Select the HDMI port to which your Bose Soundbar is connected.

    Once the HDMI connection is established, the audio from your Xbox One should be routed through your TV and into your Soundbar.

    Now, you should be able to control the volume of your Bose Soundbar using your Xbox One remote.
