hey, hope you can help. When my PS4 pro is connected to the K950, and my K950 to the TV via ARC, I'm only getting sound and the video keeps flickering on and off. Would you know what that's about?
I have that issue with my PS4 Pro to, and I can solve it temporarily by turning off the TV (leave the soundbar and console running) and then on again.
K950 is a big, big compromise for your PS4 Pro if you have a high-end tv with 4K/HDR-support. The soundbar degrades both your sound AND image-quality the same second you plug it in. And you can't do anything about it.
1) You are locked to showing YCbCr420 instead of full RGB, which means you don't get the same image quality as directly plugging in the PS4 Pro to you TV.
2) You are locked to compressed DTS at best since K950 doesn't support LPCM 5.1 surroundsound.
Asked here for help on my issue with the image flicking on and off, but the support didn't wan't to help me solve the problem, unfortunately.
Hey. Thanks for getting back. Appreciate it. I think I'm left with the option of returning the sounder. I only bought it 3 weeks ago.
I find it so hard to believe that Samsung would produce a sound bar that degrades the quality of the picture when connected to an external device. I'm really baffled by that. The Samsung website claims unde the product specs, that it supports 4K passthrough. My HW K950 clearly doesn't, whether it's a matter of a faulty unit or that the product simply doesn't support that.
I'm really saddened because I have a few Samsung products and I love them, but this is the most troublesome Samsung product I've ever owned and I regret that I'll be sending it back.
Maybe we can find a ARC signal extractor so we can connect the hdmi coming from this device to the HMDI input of the soundbar.
ARC HDMI signal coming from the TV --> device/ARC extractor/converter --> soundbar HDMI 1
If you have an lg 2017 model or an xbox one you will get dolby atmos on okja...
Yes and no to that.
Since 4.7.10 firmware (or the last update on the Netflix app as both happened at the same time) on the LG, the Netflix app will detect whether you are using HDMI or internal sound. If internal, it will show ATMOS on the programme description and play Atmos through the TV speakers. However, if you select audio out, it will show 5.1.
As it stands, you cannot get Atmos over arc from the netflix app to the soundbar.
