Many Xbox users claimed to have encountered the Dolby Atmos 0x80bd0009 error code when configuring Dolby Atmos on Xbox One S or turning on Dolby Atmos for headphones.
This problem can be very annoying. In today’s article we will show you how to quickly fix it once and for all.
What is the cause of the 0x80bd0009 error on Xbox One?
We investigated this particular bug by looking at various user reports and testing various recovery strategies recommended by other users who successfully fixed the 0x80bd0009 error code on Xbox One. In fact, there are several different scenarios that cause this problem. Here is a short list of authors who may have been responsible for the error:
An Xbox firmware error. In fact, this particular problem has already been fixed by Microsoft engineers because the problem occurred over a year ago. If you have this problem, the first thing you should do is upgrade the firmware version of Xbox One to the latest available version. This procedure should solve cases where an error code has occurred due to this corrected error.
Incorrect automatic settings – Depending on the soundbar you are using, the problem may be due to the fact that you are using automatic video settings that are not compatible with Dolby Atmos. If this is the case, you can solve the problem by manually changing some video settings.
Fixing sound problems on your AV receiver
- First of all, you need to make sure that you turn on your devices in the following order. Also note that you need to wait until each of them is fully turned on before starting the next one: Watch TV -> AV Receiver -> Xbox One console.
- You should now press the “Enter” button on your TV remote to remove the input source from the receiver from the Xbox One console and then switch it again (from HDMI1 to HDMI2, then back to HDMI1).
- You should then restart the AV receiver.
- And then just connect your TV to HDMI.
Update the Xbox One console
Make sure that the console is completely updated.
Go to “Settings”> “System”> “Updates and Downloads”> “First, check for the latest console updates”> depending on whether you are using a preview program. If you have an update for your console, continue the update.
Change the video and sound settings
If someone needs steps, which I mentioned in more detail.
- Go to the system
- Select the settings.
- Select Display and Sound.
- Go to video output
- Choose video quality
- Do not set the TV to Auto. Set the HDMI.
Then do the following:
- Go to the system
- Go to settings
- Select Display and sound.
- Select the audio output
- In the “Speaker Sound” section, set “Uncompressed HDMI Audio” to 5.1.
- In the “Speaker Sound” section, set the optical sound to “Output Stream”.
- In the “Audio Speaker” section, set the Bitstream format to DTS Digital Surround.
Turn off the Xbox One console and turn it on again.
You can restart the Xbox One console, run a full power cycle, or physically turn it off to fully restart it and solve many common problems. This process will not remove your games or data.
- Turn off the console by pressing and holding the Xbox button on the front panel for about 10 seconds. The console will shut down.
- Turn the console back on by pressing the Xbox button on the console or the Xbox button on the gamepad.
If you don’t see the green launch animation when restarting the console, repeat these steps. Be sure to press and hold the power button until the console shuts down completely.
Important: If your console is in instantaneous power-on mode, the above steps will shut down the console completely. Instant Activation Mode or the ability to activate the console from “Xbox On” will not be activated until you restart the console.
We hope that these solutions have helped you eliminate the Dolby Atmos 0x80bd0009 error code on your console. If so, please let us know in the comments section below.
