We just bought a QLED Q80T TV and set it up yesterday. There is a terrible buzzing noise when using the built in Netflix app. It makes it impossible to watch. I've read that this is due to a firmware update from Samsung. When will there be a fix for this??? Makes me want to return this TV and go with a different brand! I've tested Netflix using our old Apple TV box and it works fine. So it's definitely the app that comes pre-loaded with the TV.

I copied this from another thread. Worked for me and many!
Struggled with this problem for an hour. Directv was fine. Went to apps. Popping and buzzing. Tried all solutions here. Reset etc. I would hear the popping, switch to directv (I couldn’t stand the sound) check the sound settings and set to pcm. What I didn’t realize is that the digital output setting is app specific. You need to go to settings while in Netflix, Amazon etc. so if the pcm setting isn’t working for you, make sure you are going to sound settings while in the app that’s popping and not from your cable/dish provider that is working properly.
Same issue happening with a new QLED 800T, buzzing happens when using any of the built-in video apps. Turning on "LED Clear Motion" stops the buzzing but makes the picture significantly worse.
The noise described here in the Netflix app is the same noise I am also experiencing in both Game mode & Ambient mode. The TV is 2 months old. Extremely frustrating as I bought this TV specifically for usage with the new next-gen consoles.
