Hi everyone,

 

I need some clarification, as to be honest the Samsung support staff are hopeless with knowing anything about their own products. 

I was on chat with support enquiring about the eARC firmware update for this soundbar, he replies to me saying it doesn't have eARC?! 

the whole reason I purchased it was because of this update, I have the LG C9 which is eARC!

 

if they don't provide this firmware update to allow it, then this soundbar is going back for a refund.

I have the HW-Q80r, but all 2019 Soundbars have received the update. Your HW-Q70r is now officially eARC ready just like HW-Q80r and HW-Q90r.

Anyone tested Netflix on LG C9? I hope the lipsync issues are gone and maybe better audio quality?

Great! Hopefully tu Q90r TV update is coming soon. It has no sense that they update de soundbar and not de TV.

Nice! Does this mean the Atmos is also not lossy anymore from Netflix? Or do they only stream lossy Atmos?

It's still lossy and this will not change.

Is that manual update on the sub and rear speakers really needed again?

I guess many normal users will never do that...

What source do you guys use to get the best audio from the soundbar? Nvidia shield? Blueray player? Something else?
