TV flickering when Nvidia shield is plugged directly into n850

When plugging directly into my new n850, my TV will randomly go black for a few seconds.  This happens with all sources and happens with the same cables I used for arc previously (which I cannot use as arc doesn't support atmos).

 

TV is a Samsung 9 series uhd and never did this on my previous soundbar or when running through arc.

This is strictly happening with the shield?

I haven't tried with any other input, I could give it a go with a PS4.

 

Though I will say that I've reverted back to using ARC since I can get a solid picture.  The loss of Atmos is better than loss of picture.

As a follow up on this, the soundbar began having a lot of other issues. Not turning on with the TV, not outputting audio sometimes, despite the soundbar being on, refusing to connect to wireless rear speakers and eventually refusing to connect to the subwoofer.

I think the unit might just be faulty, so I am returning it to Samsung.
