HDMI is a horrorshow of broken standards. Nobody gets it right, not Apple, not Sony, not LG, not Nintendo.

Apple TV -> HDMI switch -> Sound bar -> TV

At some point in this chain, Dolby Vision glitches and restarts, disrupting whatever you're watching for a second. Or the screen flashes full of noise. Great


The issue ultimately ended up being the Apple TV. Fortunately a software update fixed it and now can pump out Dolby Vision and Atmos, as demonstrated by watching the opening of Baby Driver.

Still getting some occasional flickers when viewing non-HDR content in Netflix, which is not ideal.

@stevestreza Oh damn I’m having the same problem with my HDMI audio extractor, but Dolby Vision just straight-up doesn’t work or display as an option
