HW-N950 Cannot Select D.IN with AnyNet Enabled

I have a configuration with the HW-N950 that includes a Q9FN TV.  I have a PC connected to the system as follows:

 

PC ---HDMI---> Q9FN

Q9FN ARC ---HDMI---> HW-N950 ARC

PC ---TOSLINK---> HW-N950

 

The problem is that with AnyNet enabled, I cannot select the D.IN input on the HW-N950 rather ARC takes over and I can only select HDMI1, HDMI2 and then ARC TV Speakers.  I can work around this by disabling AnyNet on the HW-N950 when I want to use the PC, however this isn't an ideal solution.  

 

Is there a reason D.IN is disabled with AnyNet enabled?  Is this something that can be fixed?

 

And just to touch on it, HDMI audio from the PC isn't an option as well since Nvidia cards don't support Dolby encoding and only pass multichannel audio via LPCM, and the Q9FN is unwilling to pass multichannel audio though ARC if it isn't DD encoded

Unfortunately, ARC overtakes D.IN. Do you use the ARC for any other devices?

Yes, I use ARC for multiple devices so I guess I will have to contiune to enable and disable Anynet when I need to use the D.IN vs ARC.

 

Are you able to pass on an enhacement request to change this functionality?

Similar issue with me...

My confieguration is as follows

 

Apple TV 4K —> N950 sound bar —> Samsung TV 4K  via two HDMI connections.

 

with HDMI CEC enabled on the TV, when I wake the whole setup up with Apple TV, the TV ARC takes over and I lose sound and picture EVERY TIME. THIS IS  RIDICULOUS!!!!!!

I have the exact same problem with the HW-MS650 and a 6QFN tv, as I also wanted to use my optical input exclusively with my PC.  D.IN cannot be selected on the soundbar and the only solution is to either disconnect the HDMI-ARC cable or disable Anynet+. 

 

Both are bad options for a problem that shouldn't exist.

So as it stands now, with the HDMI-CEC feature aka ANYNET set to OFF on my Samsung TV, and ON on the N950 sound bar, the issue is NOT occurring. In addition, my rear speakers and subwoofer used to disconnect quit frequently and now that is also not happening.

 

the only down side is the fact that I have to turn the TV off and on manually. 

 

I can can live with that, but there is clearly an issue and Samsung isn’t recognizing or solving it.

Same problem here with a new Q90T and an MS750 soundbar. I would love a more elegant solution for this. I would even take remembering the AnyNet setting on the TV per device.

So I'm guessing more specifically that because of AnyNet, the TV keeps switching the Sound Output device to the soundbar (via Arc). This is what it does for me at least. I notice there is a brief period where if I switch the Sound Output away from this on the TV that D.IN on the soundbar via optical starts working, but then the TV quickly switches back to using the soundbar automatically.

 

I feel like what I need is to have the ability to select None on the Sound Output for the TV and for it to remember that setting for the device I'm using (that way I wouldn't have to constantly switch it). Seems better than turning off AnyNet which I'm guessing is a global setting and not per device. Anyway, Samsung engineers may have a better idea. But overall, just looking for a way to make this simple.

Kind of a backwards solution, but I caved and bought an SPDIF/TOSLINK switch (since HDMI->IR exists but not the reverse). So now I have everything go through optical (since my TV can do optical out). Basically, because the ARC will override optical, if I need one thing to use optical, I basically need everything to do optical. So instead of having to go through menus to turn on/off AnyNet+, I can press a button on an IR remote for my switch.

 

Ideally my other devices that can use HDMI audio would use HDMI/ARC, so I still hope this is addressed.
