RE: Linn docs surround sound
Yes, this is how I have mine setup.

In Konfig, I reassign the name from HDMI 1, 2, or 3 and call it Apple TV, for the HDMI cable into my EDSM used for the Apple.

Exakt Surround 5.0:
Katalyst Akubariks, AEDSM, Akurate Exaktbox 6/4200 for 225 Centre, Majik Exaktbox I for 212 Surrounds, OPPO 105 on StillPoints.
Power: Environmental Potentials 2460, Shunyata Triton, Zitron Cobras, Alpha Digitals
Room Acoustics: SPACE, SubDude HT's, Acoustic Panels

RE: Linn docs surround sound
It is just the doc says you need to have a hdmi repeater or av processor neither of which are necessary

I think you might find that its down mixed to 2 channel. The Apple TV doesn't output processed multi channel PCM and the DSM can not process (decode) the signal.

"The Linn DS/DSM products do not have surround sound software to decode and playback surround sound streams such as Dolby Digital, DTS etc. "

If you run the source signal through an AV processor / AV receiver / Oppo that outputs in PCM (LPCM) via HDMI, then run that to your DSM, you will have decoded/processed multi channel information the DSM can work with.

Akurate ADSM/1. Akurate Exaktbox 10, 2X 4200, 2200, Akurate 242's. 2nd Akurate Exaktbox 10, 5100, Akurate 225. 5100, 104C's. ExaktBox Sub, Sunfire HRS12. Oppo 203.

Just repeating what ropedrag said. You need a repeater or processor for multi-channel audio. Most devices such as Apple TV (and my own Blu-ray) when set to output PCM will down-mix to 2-channel stereo only.

Akurate EDSM | Majik ExaktBox-I [on Custom Design iRAPs] | Majik 140, REL T5
Rega RP1, [QNAP HS-251+, Jitterbug, MinimServer, Asset], Kazoo [Linx1010]

AV: Marantz NR1506 | B&W 620(C), M1(S), REL T5 (LFE) | Fronts powered by Linn
Net: NetGear DGN2200 | GS108 | AQ Forest x3

No need for a repeater or processor; Apple TV 4th generation outputs LPCM multichannel over hdmi:
