I have the same issue.
Q80R TV to a N850 soundbar.
I can set it to optical out/arc on TV to soundbar, but at some point, it will just switch to TV speakers and get echo sound.
I had a KS7000, I just set that to external speakers and it was set, not once did it change.
Just got my ru8000 and this is extremely annoying with my Samsung sound bar. Have to go in and change the source each time. From what I'm reading there is no fix to this?? Using the optical connection.
Hi all, FIXED the problem for meant least. I have a 75' Q7F and running a amp with home cinema. All of a sudden overnight TV kept resorting to tv speakers. First of all I blamed my Wife as you do! Nope Samsung definitely has a bug. Ok, I tried everything! What worked for me was disconnecting the power from the smart up! Powered back up, turned it off and back on the external speakers as it should be. Hope this helps everyone.
Just checking to make sure I have the soundbar connected correctly. My source (a Denon AVR) is connected to hdmi in 1 on the QF6. The soundbar is connected via hdmi using the arc hdmi port on the QF6 and the ARC Port on the ms650 soundbar. I think that’s the correct connection but if not please let me know the correct way to connect the soundbar via hdmi. Still having this issue, so I appreciate any other suggestions to try to resolve this. Thanks.
Complete garbage and unacceptable that this bug isn't fixed. I have to constantly pull my tv off the wall to restore connection. How is this acceptable? FIX THE ISSUE SAMSUNG.
Not sure if you have solved your issue but was experienceing the same thing when setting up my new Q70 TV and Samsung Soundbar 850.
I seemed to fix the issue by doing the following:
I hope this helps as it fixed my problem but everyone's setup varies so it may not fix yours.
I have a UN65MU6500F TV (SW vers 1280) and an HW-K950 soundbar connected via HDMI-ARC and the TV always reverts back to the TV speakers, especialy after a short period of inactivity, eg I pause a show for >2 minutes. The workaround is to unplug the TV for 20-30 seconds to restore the soundbar connection.
So irritating, I wish they had a fix for this.
