1010.5 Firmware Update for hw-Q70R/hw-Q80R/hw-Q90R Soundbars

Good morning friends.

 

I've performed the firmware update for my HW-Q90R soundbar.

 

Given that there is no official statement from Samsung with the details of the update  I would like to check with the community what new features have been included.

 

- How can I check now the firmware version on the bar, to check if the rears are updated as well? In the past just by holding the sound mode button on the remote with the soundbar off the different versions appeared on the display.

Now it is not case. Now by holding sound mode for 5 seconds with the bar off it enables a new functionality: Test Tone

 

 

NEW FEATURES

 

- EARC functionality is enabled, this is great.

- Test tone: What it this for? It performs a test of the sound of the different channels, is it useful for anything else?

- Now in the sources appeared TV SPEAKERS, what is this for?

 

I would like to check specially if the update has included any update of the rears and subwoffer

Earc on Tv: ON

After several attempts on updating the Subwofer (With the remote and manually switching of the soundbar and subwoofer for 10m).

These W and S remain the same:

I got the same figures in UK, previously I had 1008.0 firmware from US site. Tried also update on USB drive, holding down button 6 seconds but nothing works, I'm thinking that the 0033.0 readings are correct for the Q-80R (in Europe at least)

Yes, same here. Q80R. I don't think that anyone with Q80R got different numbers, even outside EU. Mine are:

 

M-0128.0
B-1010.5
H-0051.0
FD-0040.0
W-0033.0
S-0033.0
