Astro A50 connect to LG OLED B8

    Hi there, I have managed to connect my A50 to the Xbox One X. But I want to also connect it to my LG OLED TV via optical. The question I have is that can the usb stay in the xbox or must it be connected directly to the tv.
    Also there is a dolby atmos option under tv sound options. Should this be enabled to get surround sound on the a50 or must I just turn on the dolby option on the headset?

    Please help.

    Usb can stay in the Xbox as long as you have it on instant on so the USB port is constantly powered.

    Connect the Astro optical to your LG and in your Xbox audio settings change the output to hdmi - bitstream- Dolby.

    On your tv, turn off Atmos and select optical output.

    You will have further options where you have to select auto (not pcm).

    Just to warn you, there will be quite a audio delay as the lg oled tvs don’t handle 5.1 pass through very well.
