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
- 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
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for the reply, For Australia i would use USA?
On the Smart things app it does say update, but its 1008.0
My only problem is the Dolby Atmos cutting out every minute or so when watching movies on Netflix.
I have updated my Q80R soundbar to firmware v1010.5. I have checked all of the firmware versions for each speaker and they all match except for the sub woofer which is showing as W=0033.0 which seems to be a very old version. I have tried to force an update to the sub woofer and the led on the back changes to red and then back to blue but the version stays at 0033.0. Very odd.
