I don't think that disables the auto power off. I have tried that on the K950 and it still turns off after 5 minutes of inactivity.

 

Samsung support confirmed that there is no way to turn off the auto power down on the K950 and I assume the N950 is the same.

Has there been a fix for this yet? Pretty much a dealbreaker if they don't fix this

It has never been fixed yet on the K-950 so I doubt it will be fixed anytime soon on the N-950.

Guess they think nobody pauses their TV for more than 5 minutes.

If they are that lazy to have an off feature, just modify the code to increase the poweroff timer to 9999.  Lazy coding but it gets the job done.  I'm contract for hire.  Samsung, ping me.

I'm having this issue as well.  I really wish Samsung would fix this.

 

On a related note, I have a QN65Q7FN TV along with the HW-N950.  Does anyone know if I can use the TV remote to power on the soundbar when this happens?  Or, do I need to keep the soundbar remote out for when this happens?

Re: N950 soundbar auto power off

This issue was absolved in the K series. Seems the option is a hidden menu for the N series too....

Refer to page 30 of n950 manual....
"Auto Power Down On/Off (AUX mode) page 27" so yes, it can be turned off somehow.

 

If there's no AUX mode (K series had it), try holding PLAY/PAUSE for 5sec in each different source menu?
