I have Samsung QN90A TV and Samsung HW-Q700A soundbar. I plugged the soundbar into TV via HDMI-eARC cable.
As I said in the title, my problem is that Q-Symphony is only available to play via Wi-Fi connection instead of HDMI-eARC cable.
I can only have soundbar play via HDMI-eARC, but not TV speakers + soundbar, that is only restricted to Wi-Fi.
When I go in Settings > Sound > Sound Output to turn on Q-Symphony:
Only option I get is "TV +[AV] Soundbar Q700A (Wi-Fi)" instead of "TV +[AV] Soundbar Q700A (HDMI-eARC)".
This surely means my audio output is limited when watching content with Dolby Atmos and alike, right?
Also, for whatever reason - whenever I turn on my TV, soundbar doesn't turn on autonatically, so I need to turn on Q-Symphony manually every time....
This is really driving me crazy, I really need some help here please.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I turned off the power of the TV not only with the remote control but also from the outlet, and also turned off the power from the outlet of the soundbar. then unplugged the hdmi cable from the tv. after 2-3 minutes (this is important) I connected the hdmi cable, then turned on the power of the TV, then the soundbar. everything worked
I am having exactly the same issue with my QN95A TV and the HW-Q700A. I am using the HDMI cable provided in the box
So I did a factory reset on both my TV and soundbar which fixed the problem... sadly I cannot provide any more troubleshoot info as in why and how.
Hope this helps fixing your problem.
Hi, any joy with a fix for this ? I’m getting the exact same issue with a HW-Q950T sound bar.
I have just ordered some premium ultra high speed HDMI Cables in the hope it may help !
Was having same issue … was on arc hdmi for a year but then was Wi-Fi for some reason … after factory resets didn’t work I was at a loss … what finally worked for me was toggling the TV anynet+ CEC off and then on
Tried Anynet+ off and on to no avail. So ***** frustrating that over £2,000 of tv and audio equipment from the same manufacturer doesn’t work as it should.
will be staying away from Samsung in the future.
