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

With power off, press and hold volume up and down Soundbar buttons together until int appears.

 

This erase all settings only.

 

You can't do FACTORY RESET.

If only everyone used smart things to do auto upgrades then no issues and it also updates all speakers also and works seamlessly, no need to update firmware then any button presses to update speakers using to clumsy USB method of updating.

 

Most issues are due to not using smart things

To update your woofer from 240 or 241 to 242. Do the id set up and update again by pressing the down button. And recheck the version it will be 242 for W

thanks, any idea what is the benefit of the W-242 update?

just to be sure, what do you mean by "do the id set" ? (..in the manual there is both the "connecting order of the components" or the "pressing the back button" on them...and then press the "UP" button on the remote..🤔.) thanks again🖖
