Model: QE50Q80CATXXU

Software: T-PTMCDEUC-1402.5, E1371400, BT - S

Country: UK

The issue occurs when using the built-in digital TV option, via a coaxial antenna connection. Every few minutes (it appears pretty ad-hoc, but I'd say around every 5 minutes) the sound drops out momentarily (less than a second - but noticeable, as a word will often be lost). Recordings appear to be the same.

I'm experiencing no such issues on any other sources.

I can't see if it was the same before the recent firmware upgrade as I've only had the TV a few weeks and it's all I've known.

For the audio, I'm using 2 paired Apple HomePod Minis using HDMI-eArc, via an Apple TV 4K.

"2 paired Apple HomePod Minis using HDMI-eArc."

WHAT??

Homepod minis are wifi only devices, there is no way to connect them via HDMI.

The HomePods are connected to an Apple TV 4K - that's the bit that's connected via HDMI. The Apple TV acts as the soundbar, with the HomePods the speakers.

There is well known documented issues with Homepods and its Airplay audio issues.  It a big thing over in Channels DVR (which is what i use for tv)  forms with many issues reported, not just in their app.  I did not know one could setup them in that config to work as a "sound bar" for eARC use. However, the ATV will sleep when u change to use the tv's own apps/TV input (at least mine does).  I doubt much support would be given by Samsung for your specific issue, they would blame Apple. But, of your setup works fine with other apps on the tv, and only issues with the OTA tuner, weird. Maybe some sort of interference.?

If you take a look at others who are reporting the same you'll find that It's affecting Soundbars generally, not just HomePods, and it only started after the 1402.5 firmware update.

Just Samsung soundbars?
(Based on many reviews i looked at, they seem to be quite temperamental in general. )

I have only have 1x HDMI sound bar to test with(Fosi Audio A5), and it has had no issues on this firmware or on 1310.

I have had other audio related issues with this tv  though.
 I did try to use a few different USB DACs connected to my TV, but it had constant audio issues, click, pops, drop outs, with any source, HDMI devices or internal tv apps. Each DAC worked perfect on any other device.  This firmware has not fixed that issue. Was present on 1310 (what tv came with).  I tired various things, usb filter, powered usb hub in between, high quality certified USB cables,  DAC with independent power. No change. I assume it is issue with internal hardware shielding on the tv's SOC, or the USB audio of the Tizen OS software being junk. No issues with Optical out to same DAC.

I don't know - many have not stated, but I've seen at least one person say it wasn't. Hopefully, we'll collect some more information on this.

Meantime, does anybody have any possible fixes for this? Can I assume that if I switch to using the TV speakers that this will go away?

Try using optical connection to a sound bar or a AVR.

Though, that is to say, get a completely different audio setup that does not use HDMI eARC. 😐
