Samsung devices that support 5.1 audio

Anyone have a list of which Samsung devices support 5.1 audio from Tablo? My S8 doesn’t seem to (no audio when Surround Sound enabled on the Tablo)

Dolby has a list here:

Yeah… I’m not so sure that’s the answer the OP is looking for.

  1. I can record in Dolby 5.1 on the Tablo. And use the website on my S8, launch an external browser, and listen through my headphones (in 2.0) using something like VLC.
    It’s a patch to the problem, but it works.

  2. I mean, I believe the S9 supports Dolby and all, there’s settings in there on my wife’s phone. But recording in Dolby 5.1 on the Tablo, and using the Tablo app, there’s still no audio when listening on her device (she has the S9). I wouldn’t rush out to upgrade your phone for Tablo support.

Similar to @Max 's excellent answer, and this app is only for recordings (no live TV at this point) you can use my app Ota2GO:

It’s free for this purpose. Just go in to settings and tell it to use an external video player for 5.1 recordings. There’s a button to get VLC if you don’t have already. Hope it helps!
