20+ years in IT/Cyber security. I'm unable to connect a soundbar to my $4000 TV. Did the research, followed verbatim.
I will now join the droves of other customers who check daily for some kind of resolution.
Man I wish I read these reviews before buying. Even my neighbor (pilot) said he had read about these issues with Samsung QLED. He out researched me...he wins.
Update: Samsung pulled all firmware updates from their website for the 2020 80T Series. I will take this as a sign they are aware of the issue and working on a fix.
