    So tried this once awhile ago, but didn't seem to work and just want to make sure I didn't do anything wrong.

    Have a LG OLED B7, STR-DN1080, and PC with a GTX 1070.

    Is it possible to plug the PC into one of the HDMI ports on the TV, and have Dolby Atmos come out of A/V receiver via ARC from the other HDMI port that is plugged into the reciever? Basically trying to make it so I don't have to keep changing the output on my A/V receiver to PC mode.

    eARC yes, if by atmos you mean HD audio standards.

    Regular arc doesn't support the HD streams

    I was able to get Atmos to work, but HDR is another story. Turns on at the desktop, but in games it doesn't work.

    Are the games you're playing supporting HDR?

    It has to be built-in to the title.
