Amazing I have a bass speaker that works! Your fix seems to have worked, many thanks.

Brilliant! & yep its not really deserving of a title of smart device tbh! Dumb device possibly ;-) However the firmware update via usb seemed to do the trick, ended up with much more stable connectivity & sounded much much better, wich of course would be expected with better connectivity stability :-)

No way should it be too much! Its designed & based around QLED, HDR & DTS Dolby Atmos. So really I would think it should b perfect for the job. I'm no expert like. I found mine ran much better with all my devices connected directly to my tv & then the TV connected to the soundbar via HDMI (ARC) & that was how i decided to have it setup after playing around trying allsorts of methods. It seemed to be the most stable consistant & compatible allowing me to enable all the didgital atmos settings, performing more like i was expecting it to for the price (less the hassle) not sure this will help?

Hi,

Thank you for al the info here. My HW-Q90r came out of the box with a 1008 firmware. I checked all the setting and if I compare it with the settings posted in this thread the only difference is my W setting. This should be W 0241.0 and mine is W 0240.0

I did a update again for the rears and sub, and W stays at W 0240.0

Any idea if there are different 1008 updates????
My settings:

ON > M 0126.0 > B 1008.0 > H 0051.0 > FD 0040.0 > W 0240.0 > S 0136.0 > RR 0136.0 > RL 0136.0

Firmware version HW-Q90RWWB-1008.0

Same issue here. W stays at W 0240.0, but I have no connection issues. I'll wait for next fw version to see what happens.

Anyway, the soundbar works fine. Won't do anything else for now.

I am based in the UK, and opted for the 1008 update from the US website, as I am suffering from the rear speakers disconnect. 

After the update, all appeared well, but after a prolonged period being turned off, I am back to square one, having to power cycle and hope the rear speakers connect on every occasion.  

 

What I have noticed is that my version numbers are different from what others have posted, does anyone know why?

I have updated via USB from Samsung US

You did not update the rear speakers and subwoofer

Strictly follow the instructions here very carefully, don't skip any small step. I had a problem updating the Subwoofer, it stayed at 0240.0, after a couple of tries it updated to 0241.0: https://www.samsung.com/uk/support/tv-audio-video/how-to-update-the-software-of-your-q90r-soundbar/

 

If everything worked ok, you will see the correct versions:

ON > M 0126.0 > B 1008.0 > H 0051.0 > FD 0040.0 > W 0241.0 > S 0136.0 > RR 0136.0 > RL 0136.0

 

Samsung should make this process more user-friendly, and make it work from the SmartThings app with a custom update process that shows the update progress and status of the soundbar and the subwoofer + surround speakers. The USB approach should be a last resort approach.
