After updating my Samsung 50" NU7100 software to version 1333, the audio now has a 1 second drop out that occurs a couple times every hour. This happens on both the internal speakers and on the optical out while watching broadcast television. I already did a factory reset, but the problem still remains. It even happened while the music was playing during the initial setup, so it's not limited to the tuner. Whatever was changed in this software version, please change it back, as the dropouts are very annoying.

Everything I see pertains to their smart phones when it comes to reporting errors. I couldn't find anything about reporting software issues for their TVs. They used to have a simple contact forum years ago, but I see they've gotten rid of that in favor of chat. My past experience with support was not that great, and their advice was either try the basic troubleshooting tasks or send the TV in for service. They don't admit that the software is at fault, unless they receive a large number of complaints. My last Samsung TV was plagued with numinous issues ever since it was brand new, which I complained about to customer support. Many of these issues could have been fixed with a software update, and out of the several updates that model received, none of them fixed any of those issues.
