TCL 75Q825 Roku TV YouTube Stereo Only

TCL connected to Onkyo TX-SR393 through ARC. Roku TV is OS of my TCL. I get Atmos surround 5.1 or DD surround 5.1 with Netflix, Disney +, etc. However YT (free) defaults to stereo. I could have sworn that it was on DD surround 5.1 for some YT vids I watched but now those same vids default to stereo. I could be wrong but don't want to focus on that. My question is, does YT default to stereo for everyone else? Is there a way around this?

I'm pretty sure Youtube, except for premium content, is stereo only..

Yeah, I got some Rokus.

Actually I was able to fix this already. I had to set my Roku TV to pass through. Once I did that, my receiver is able to process YouTube to 5.1.
