When using the K650 sound bar and two R1 Wireless speakers in surround sound mode over wifi with the latest firmware, The quailty of the sound K650 drops, sounds very muddy. As soon as you use the sound bar on it own, the sound bar improves. this is happening for a quite a few users.
can you help.
I was watching via optical when I read abob36 post I just picked up my TV remote and went into sound and switched to soundboard and surrounds over WiFi and it started working. I have turned the sub right down as that was still overpowering but I have very clear sound still. I really don't know how that can be and no I'm afraid to turn it off or change anything in case it stops working again. As stated I am watching a blueray through my xbox Obe s and haven't tried another source yet. I am convinced if I start messing with it that it will go back to being muffled. also I couldn't get 5.1 to work on my xbox one and it was driving me nuts. now it's working. I am so confused right now. lol
No luck still. Just end up with the same muddy/muffled quality as soon as I put it back in surround mode. Interestingly it doesn't always kick out of surround to 3.1 but its the same result either way once surrounds are added.
Have tried to turn bass down as there is way too much as before but even with this on -6 it's too much, and this puts me back at square one with original issues.
Nowhere near the quality I get with the workaround; tried with different sources.
OK try this step-by-step:
I turned my TV off and back on, and the 5.1 changes kept and it sounded good. I will do more testing today after work. (I mentioned before, but I am in the US, so that is why my responding is a bit late).
I got it to drop to 3.1 when changing from D.In to wifi and then added the rears on the app.
Speaking ( centre channel) appears clearer now but still way too much bass on all sources. Have to have it on -6 or even on -12 when watching high definition input as before.
When I turn soundbar off then on again it just displays "wifi" on soundbar and reverts back to TV sound.
Also when I go back into app and change back to TV input, it attempts to go back in surround mode automatically but hangs on "grouping speakers"
All very weird this. When I had the clearer sound on wifi I disconnected optical lead and made no difference at all. Must be a quirk in the firmware that only works when completing certain connection steps in a certain order as you have described.
TV I have is on firmware 1154 (K Series)
