Did anyone have any luck using the Soundbar with a Fire TV Cube (2nd Gen) ? All the apps (Netflix, Prime, Disney) let me select Atmos sound but the soundbar only says "Dolby Surround". No luck getting help from JBL .what is the solution?
Does the JBL 9.1 display Dolby Atmos when playing Dolby Atmos?? I have directly connected ShieldTV and FireTV to it (over HDMI) and am passing Dolby Atmos titles to JBL 9.1 but it says Dolby Surround on the soundbar. It says that for ALL Dolby signals.
Updated software and now noticeably quieter. Voices were clear at lower volume levels and now have to increase volume so everything is loud just to hear speaking.
Do the side caps for both the soundbar & read speakers come with the UK version? In the specification & manual it states "some regions only"
I have an 86" LG 86SM9070PUA that has eARC HDMI 2.1 on the #2 input. I have my JBL 9.1 connected correctly, however if I play something from Disney+ app that is supposed to have Dolby Atmos? It doesn't display as such, it only shows "Dolby Surround"
Does the sound bar have any selectable EQ settings to boost center/voice or treble/bass levels?
Bought this yesterday and I can't adjust the rear speaker volume when I press it says "NOT SUPPORTED" speakers are working fine and it's detached as well.
Calibration keeps coming up as retry?
