This is a strictly gaming PC connected to an LG CX and Earc to receiver, same way i have my Xbox connected which works fine
I have to go to the windows settings and enable atmos each time because it sets it to another speaker mode

After enabling it works fine at least until i reboot

Atmos is over HDMI connected to RTX 3080

Is there a solution?

I encountered this issue a couple of weeks ago. At boot it would change my sound from Realtek speakers to my hdmi monitor speakers, but before I had time to troubleshoot it, it went away. I attributed it to a windows update. I also had a bios update during that time. What build are you on? I'm on release 22000.708. Last update that installed was KB5014019

Here's the way my sound is set up. See if it makes any difference if you change your Atmos to look like my Realtek by clicking on the arrow over to the right. Then do the same on any other sound devices you have by making them look like my Benq LCD. Hope it works for you.

Your setup is so far advanced to anything I've ever used, I'm not the best one to give advice. We have a few audiophiles, videophiles, and gamers here. Hopefully one will step in. One other maybe off the wall suggestion. This is an assumption, mind you, but I'm assuming the LG CX has drivers and firmware updates on the LG site. Have you verified you are up to date.

Its pretty basic IMO, just the TV connected to the GPU with the receiver connected over Earc HDMI

I have gotten the LG drivers, but i havent checked recently, ill give that a go
