Roon, Apple TV 4K endpoint and Qobuz 5.1

I am trying to use my TV 5.1 soundbar setup to play a Qobuz 5.1 stream via Apple TV 4K. Problem is that is that I get a “Remix channel 5.1 to 2.0” as part of the signal path and thus music ends up playing on 2.0 stereo instead of 5.1.

Apple TV is configured to use Dolby 5.1 and movies and such work properly in 5.1.

Is it possible to do this via Apple TV → Roon connection?

  • Apple TV 4K
