How to know if Soundbar 700 is receiving Dolby Digital signal?

Is there any way to find out what format the sound bar is getting over ARC?

For all I know the TV could just be sending stereo for everything...

Typically soundbars have some LED display that shows the format but since the Bose doesn't, is there any way to tell?

Hello Dannydown,

 

Thank you for your question. 

 

The Soundbar 700 itself can not show you this information, however within your TVs sound settings there may be a menu which will be able to provide you with this information. 

 

I hope this helps!

I'm sure Bose could implement this via the app.

Soundbar 700, how to understand the type of audio signal

I want to understand the type of audio signal that my soundbar is receiving (for example Dolby digital 5.1 or PC 2.1), is there a way to do this?

When I connect tha hdmi arc the type of coding is a choice between TV and soundbar, but I have a strong suspicious that my TV (Panasonic 55cx700e) doesn't have a hdmi pass through.

Re: Soundbar 700, how to understand the type of audio signal

Sorry to bring back an older thread, but instead of creating a new one, I figured I'd add to this.  It would be very helpful to be able to tell which signal the soundbar is receiving/outputting.  While most of the time I can tell that i'm listening to surround, sometimes I can't confirm.  I'm surprised more people haven't been requesting that.  Basically it would be nice to launch the app and see that i'm currently playing DD or DTS etc like most receivers do.
