Ratings and Reviews
Doesn't seem to work quite right if Apple TV is not set for your app
Connected to Apple TV from iPhone 6s and have optical audio feeding my Yamaha surround receiver from the Apple TV. When I see all channels playing I get main and surround audio. When only one rear channel is indicated the sound is only output from the front speaker. When both rears are indicated, both fronts play with a bit from the rears. But...just found the solution. The app playback does not trigger the Apple TV to Dolby surround when it is set to auto mode. If I go to settings on the Apple TV and select Dolby for audio instead of auto it does work. Otherwise the stereo only provides Dolby ProLogic playback (which does not support discrete rear channels...)
Great value for quick tests
I wasn’t sure if my subwoofer was working. I purchased the subwoofer add on for $.99 and viola, it out my sub through its paces and I figured out it was working.
Useless unless you pay
It only plays 2 speakers unless you pay to upgrade to multi speaker support. A waste of bandwidth downloading this app.
Developer Response ,
Full 5.1 surround IS supported on all tracks, yes, even the free ones!
If you're not hearing 5.1 from the app, then this indicates your surround is not properly configured. Please read the in-app help notes for tips on how to correct any problems with your system. Thanks!
