No ARC port on TV

Hi, I recently bought a Samsung - 7.1.4-Channel 512W Soundbar System with 8" Wireless Subwoofer and Dolby Atmos - Natural Gray model HW-Q90R/ZA and have the Roku Streaming Stick+. My question is that I do not have an ARC port on my older model Samsung TV. If I plug the stick directly into one of the HDMI ports on the sound bar and use an HDMI cable to connect the bar to the TV for video would the bar still decode the audio as Dolby Digital or Atmos since the stick is directly plugged into the soundbar or does it still depend on having and ARC port on the TV? Thanks in advance.
