@GTEdwards  Thanks for the note!

Dolby Atmos passthrough is supported on the Roku Ultra, for all channels that offer this audio format in their content. Some popular channels that offer Dolby Atmos for some content titles include Disney+, Vudu, and Netflix.

This functionality requires you to have a receiver/soundbar capable of decoding and playing Dolby Atmos. You can see more here: https://support.roku.com/article/208756108-can-i-listen-to-movies-and-tv-shows-in-surround-sound-

 

Thanks,

The 4660x2 does not support Dolby Atmos. I upgraded to the 4670x and it supports Dolby Atmos (selected channels) and sounds great.

My Roku is connected via HDMI to an Atmos soundbar (JBL 9.1) which is connected to my LG TV via HDMI (ARC port)

Only Vudu and Amazon Prime can stream Atmos via Roku.  Not Plex, Netflix, or anything else.

This is presumably because ROKU has not paid the extra tenth of cent to get these streams.

Apple TV app does as well. More Dolby Atmos to choose from than Amazon.
