Google Play Movies & YouTube - No Dolby Digital 5.1

Question

Is anyone else having this same problem and let me know so I can determine where the problem is and who to contact to fix it:  I can't get any Dolby Digital 5.1 audio output from either YouTube or the Google Play Movies apps.  They will only output DD 2.0.

It is not a problem with the movies themselves, as I have double-checked all my movie contents from my Nexus Play to validate.  It also doesn't appear to be the the TV or WebOS 3.0, as all my other TV apps are not experiencing this problem, and I get Dolby Digital 5.1 output just fine.  I have updated the firmware on my TV, uninstalled & reinstalled the apps to check, and still no good.  I've chatted with Google support but got a Tier 1 support person who didn't have a clue or help.  This person suggested I contact my speaker manufacturer which was a ridiculous response.  Below are my versions...

LG OLED65B6P

WebOS 3.0     04.30.65

YouTube      1.0.27

Google Play Movies    1.0.20

Good news, as I have at least now having DD 5.1 working from the YouTube app now.  It still won't work in the Play Movies app.

I've had the TV short of a month now.  Since then, I have it two times were I wasn't getting any video signal from my HMDI3/UHD bluray player.  I had to reset the TV each time.  Last night I went to try and watch some Netflix and discovered I wasn't getting any audio out the ARC HMDI to my receiver; none of the apps.  I reset the TV again, tinkered with settings, did it all again this morning to no avail.  After working on it this morning, I went to go download the manual to double-check all the TV settings and noticed a new firmware was just released yesterday.  After installing the new firmware, I was able to get my audio out the ARC HDMI again.  Since I hadn't logged back into my apps after the last reset, I went to check Play Movies and YouTube and found that Dolby Digital 5.1 was now working out of the YouTube app.

I've just bought OLED65C7V.

YouTube works with dolby digital, but Google play movie outputs only in stereo 2ch even if I set PCM or Auto from WebOS audio menu, no way to have dolby digital.

Any ideas?

    • Question: Chapters in ripped movies can't be accessed (OLED55B6T)

      I'm using Serviio on a Raspberry Pi as my DLNA server. If I rip a DVD/Blu-Ray movie with MakeMKV, retaining the chapters from the disc, I can use VLC as the DLNA client on my PC to play the rip from Serviio on the Pi, and I can access the chapters in the ripped file, jumping forwards and backwards from chapter to chapter. However, if I use the DLNA client in my LG OLED55B6T to play the same rip, the chapters can't be accessed - trying to do so jumps to the next/previous rip in the folder on the server. Has anyone managed to get chapters working with the DLNA client on an LG TV? p.s. I also tested by connecting a Chromecast to the TV, and using BubbleuPnP on my phone as the DLNA client and casting the phone to the TV. That method also allows me to access the chapters on the movie rip, so it looks even more as though this is a shortcoming in the DLNA client built into the TV.

    • Question: IPlayer / Freeview Play

      I have a strange problem with freeview play and Iplayer on my 55 E6 I need help first is this the correct place to post 
      The problem started about 2 months ago 
      If i select a BBC program from the past by scrolling through the freeview guide Iplayer starts as usual But when it starts playing there is no picture or sound if subtitles are on you can see the the subtitles going by but no sound of picture.

      if i start iplayer using the app UI to watch the same program it works fine 
      all other catch up works through the freeview guide 
      If i am watching a bbc program and press green to restart the program it works ok also
      I have contacted Freeview they told me to contact BBC 
      I have contacted bbc iplayer help they told me to contact LG 

      I contacted John Lewis they sent an engineer he said he would report the issue to LG 
      I am told LG said they did not see it as a problem and would do nothing 
      I spoke to John Lewis again and was told LG tvs do not support Iplayer any more 

      I also have a 55uh850v that I use in my cinema as a 3d monitor this tv is olso webos3 this tv has exactly the same problem 
      I also have a 49UH610v this works perfectly 
      I also have a OLED55B7V this has the freeview guide disappearing problem that is well documented in "LG TV Freeview Play" forum but when its working the Iplayer works ok
      I have 70mg fibre broad band and the tvs are on wired ethernet

      LG’s 2018 lineup of AI-enabled ThinQ TVs are going to be getting Google Assistant functionality in many of its international markets. Starting 8/24, Google Assistant will be available in Canada, Australia, and the UK, with support coming to South Korea, Spain, France, and Germany by the end of the year.
      LG’s ThinQ TVs came with integrated Google Assistant when they launched in the US and added support for Alexa commands soon after. The built-in ThinQ AI, which runs on LG’s own WebOS can be used for TV-specific commands, such as “search for the soundtrack of this movie,” while Google Assistant and Alexa can be used as a smart home hub. You can basically use the TV the same way you’d use your Google Home by speaking commands into the mic on your remote.
      LG is also planning on bringing Amazon Alexa support to Australia and Canada in the future, but no time is specified yet.

      I'm having a little problem since a few days ago, when I try to use the YouTube app it shows the start screen as always but then it don't show the videos and just grey words appear at the side as if it was the tittles and all the text in the app, I tried starting the app from my phone but it just play the sound but no video is showed.
      I already erased and reinstalled the app, and even disconnected the TV, I searched on Google but I can't find a way to make it work again 
      Anyone knows why? Or how I can fix it?
      Here is a Photo of how it looks
