  • Samsung QN85Q80TAFXZA
  • Latest Firmware: 2016.1 (updated via USB)
  • Samsung HW-N950
  • Same issue on 1462.1 - EARC auto switches back to TV Speakers - Soundbar shows on TV, no sound
  • Issue started Sunday 6/27 on FW 1462.1

 

20+ years in IT/Cyber security. I'm unable to connect a soundbar to my $4000 TV.  Did the research, followed verbatim. 

Sad.

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.

Day 75

Running low on water. Samsung 85 inch TV still can only use TV speakers; no EARC.

Running low on patience.

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.
