Hi Rob


Heres my setup:


TV: UE55KS7000 - 1168.2 - reports this as latest available

Soundbar: HW-K650WWB - 3111.2/0338.0R

2 x R1s - WAM1501WWB - 3112.5/180R


Cheers - S


TV KS8000 65inch version 1168

HWK-650 version 3111

R Lite x 2 both version 3112


I've checked TV, it's on auto update, when I try to update manually it says I'm on the latest version. 


I've run a software update through the multiroom app and it says I'm on the latest update for everything.... 


Although quite clearly it would appear I'm not on the latest versions of the software for the TV, the sounbar or the surround speakers! 


Very confused! Although it would appear the latest version has not fixed the problem for the guys that have it anyway! Not sure why my system will not update to the latest versions?
