Hello

I have recently bought a new home theater package (Onkyo HT-S5805).
My AV receiver is connected with LG Bluray player (BP420).
I have downloaded some Dolby Atmos demos from the internet and played it via external hard disk through my bluray player and they ran fine but when I tried to play .mkv dolby atmos movies in it "Audio format not supported" error was displayed.

So what should I do to fix this problem?

Will I have to purchase something to play Dolby Atmos movies in mkv format?

It lacks the right codec. You could easily play that through your PC. https://mpc-hc.org/ and https://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html play nice with Matroska.

I tried VLC but audio is not coming out properly in movies with this format.

And MPC? Custom channel configuration? The source media's audio output is what it is. After that it takes some style, that I don't have with surround sound systems.
