Hello there. Have you tried to use another HDMI cable or update OS of your apple TV? I have 4-th gen. of it. Everything seems to be good.

Are you using a home theater setup, or just your TV speakers? I noticed that the Apple TV tends to send a slightly quieter signal to my Onkyo receiver, but my 5.1 soundbar upstairs never seems to have a problem. I just turn it up a little more on the Onkyo.

Also there is a setting in the A/V menus for "Reduce Loud Sounds", maybe check to make sure thats off.

I'm using the Sk10y which is lg sound bar and i maxed it completely out and it felt alot lower then just using my tv app. I might just see if i can sell my apple tv since i rarely use it now that i'm forced into

It's off i even rebooted the soundbar and apple tv even went out to buy belkin hdmi cable.Guess apple tv is picky when it comes to sound bars.
