See this Reddit post for more information. When using any of:
- Wired Xbox controller
- Wireless Xbox controller
- Logitech F710 controller
With Steam Link on several Samsung TV models (QN65QN85DAFXZA,qe55qn90a), the right control stick now adjusts volume in the app and in-game. This makes Steam Link unplayable for people as the right control stick can't be used without making the TV hit 0 or 100% volume.
It looks like this may be related to the 2111 release, as this was working previously and many users are reporting the same problem now. This originally seemed to be a problem with Steam, but now we realize it may be a problem with Samsung's new software.
Funnily enough you can. The Xbox Game Pass works good, no problem with the right analog stick or holding B. I don't know why, maybe the Xbox app enter gaming mode or something. Tried on a 2021 Q60A.
As of today (1/9/23), steam link recieved an update.
I tried steam link again, and nothing. Didn't work.
So I decided to update the firmware on my tv from Version 2111.0 to Version 2120.0 using a flashdrive that had the firmware update files installed. (You can find the firmware updates here: https://www.samsung.com/us/support/downloads/)
Tried it again, and didn't work...
Please someone try this too, and reply if this solved the problem for you.
