I’m suffering from sound pauses; the sound bar is fed optically from a new Samsung TV. Changing the source from/to PCM or Dolby Digital makes no difference - I still experience 1 second sound pauses that seem worse when the screen contains large patches of white. Any possible solution?
The combination of a 7 series Samsung TV and an HW-N300 using an optical link has - in my case - been an unmitigated disaster. Samsung have been unable to explain or remedy an intermittent audio dropout. The solution has been a 3rd party optical/audio converter connected via the Aux socket on the Soundbar. I doubt whether I will buy Samsung products again.
