VIZIO Elevate 5.1.4 Channel Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer and Rotating Speakers for Dolby Atmos / DTS:X
A:AnswerI only have HDMI ARC on my tv but I use an Xbox one X which suppors Atmos. So I have my Soundbar connected to my Xbox and have no issues playing Atmos content even though my TV only has HDMI ARC.
As long as the receiver, in my case the xbox one X, could be a Bluray player or PlayStation supports Atmos, it doesn't matter if the TV is Atmos capable or not.
A:AnswerYes, but unfortunately, this unit has some issues with its hdmi inputs. It isn't passing Dolby vision, and people are saying that its only passing atmos some of the time. I'm recommending if people don't have arc or earc, to wait. I've spoken with Vizio. A firmware fix is incoming soon.
You have the right idea though, yes.
A:AnswerGreen is just indication of change. Then it will go back to blue. I recommend getting the app as its much easier to tune your speakers and will have the audio format right on the home screen. If it switching from Dolby mat to lpcm, or Dolby mat to Dolby atmos, you'll see the green. If anything switches to atmos the speakers will go up, and they'll come down when its not atmos. So even when I'm watching a show on apple tv+, it will register Dolby atmos, speakers go up. Then there's an ad for some other apple tv + content where the speakers go down, then the actual show starts and they go up again. So obviously the ads are in pcm or mat. The bar will usually cut out for a split second when abruptly changing audio formats, just like it does if you change the EQ.
A:AnswerThe answer posted saying hdmi 2.1 is required for earc is not true. Hdmi 2.1 is not required for earc, although it is required for vrr&allm pass through. In other words, if it's not hdmi 2.1, you wont be hooking up your next gen console to it. You can use it with earc and hook the console or pc up to the tv/monitor to take advantage of earc, but your tv must support passing through of certain audio formats. 2020 lg and samsung do not pass through dts. If it's hdmi 2.1 and supports the right video formats and pass throughs, you can hook things up directly to the soundbar, as is preferred.
Many TV's have earc and do not support HDMI 2.1. earc is an HDMI 2.1 standard, however it can be implemented on an 18gbps hdmi 2.0b chipset.
Initially this was suppose to be an HDMI 2.1 soundbar. If the answer from Vizio is correct, it's likely that they went back on their word, because vizio hasn't figured out hdmi 2.1 yet. Their TV's don't even implement vrr properly, so I'm not confident a soundbar would. To be fair, I don't know a single manufacturer that doesn't have problems with VRR at the moment. We'll have to see if Sony gets It right in their firmware updates.
I was going to buy this, but if it's hdmi 2.0, it's useless. No 4k-120, vrr, or allm pass-through(if it is really hdmi 2.0). Even if it is hdmi 2.1, wait until the vrr is tested and confirmed working. Like we all should've done before spending thousands on their TV's this year.
If this unit does not have hdmi 2.1, that would be almost as stupid as releasing a p series, pqx and OLed before they are ready for the market.
A:AnswerI have the q90t tv paired with the Vizio Elevate and I tried the q850t side by side. Firstly, your salesman probably told you about Qsymphony, but I can tell you it is not a noticeable addition. Added to that, the q850t has much less speakers vs the Vizio and sounds much thinner, much less bass, and none of the adjustments are noticeable either. I couldn't return the q850t fast enough. The Vizio Elevate is so much better in every way. It also has 8 more speakers vs the q850t in total (Vizio 18, Samsung 10). A much more full and refined sound with the Vizio Elevate.
A:AnswerI've got the cx its working great. I don't have any popping noises when switching audio formats or anything like that. I've heard it too. I haven't experienced it and I've tested this bar well.
Many tvs don't have earc set up correctly just yet. Also, our settings need to be set to passthrough after you set earc, or else sometimes the TV makes the wrong decision. Nothing major, but if you leave it on auto instead of passthrough, sometimes the TV will put it into pcm whereas if it were in passthrough, you'd get whatever the source called for and the bar would recognize say...5.1lpcm instead of stereo pcm.
I'm making it seem worse than it is. Download the app, and only use earc until there's a firmware update...the hdmi ports on the bar aren't fully functional yet...that's where the people are having their problems. Bar doesn't like to pass atmos or Dolby vision when plugging directly into it. Earc works absolutely perfectly. And the app is the best way to tune the speakers. Sorry for the length. Hope this helped. Oh, ive spoken to vizio, who spoke with their engineers, and the inputs on the bar aren't working properly in some cases. They know it and its getting addressed with firmware in the near future.
