Hi all,

 

Sharing the official response on this one we received:

 

"We are aware of this unfortunate side effect of the software update T-MSLDEUC_1401.0 & T-MSMDEUC_1401.0, during HDMI switching Audio is forced back to TV Speakers.

We will rectify this problem when we make the next full update to the TV Firmware during 2023, but until then we can offer an interim firmware update available to download & update by USB using the following links

 

https://org.downloadcenter.samsung.com/downloadfile/ContentsFile.aspx?CDSite=UNI_UK&OriginYN=N&Model...

 

https://org.downloadcenter.samsung.com/downloadfile/ContentsFile.aspx?CDSite=UNI_UK&OriginYN=N&Model...

 

The firmware needs to be “Unzipped” before writing the root of a USB.

If you are unsure which Firmware you require, simply download, extract & write both to the root of a USB stick & the TV will update using the correct file.

Instructions on how to create the USB Update file can be found here:

 

https://org.downloadcenter.samsung.com/downloadfile/ContentsFile.aspx?CDSite=UNI_UK&OriginYN=N&Model...

https://org.downloadcenter.samsung.com/downloadfile/ContentsFile.aspx?CDSite=UNI_UK&OriginYN=N&Model...

 

Note: The supplied links mention 'PS42B450B1W', this is not a mistake & the correct update file is available at that location."

Hi @richardhxEU ,

 

The links above are for all affected UK and European TV sets. For folks who are from elsewhere it's best for them to get in touch with their local Samsung Support.

You just need to unzip the update file and copy it to an empty USB drive. Insert in TV. Can't remember if you have to reboot. One the TV finds the file, follow the onscreen instructions.

My TV is currently on version 1409 and when I insert a USB with version 1406.4 it sees the file but doesn't install it because it counts it as a downgrade

Hmm The thread you linked to is almost a year old so may have been current at that time but is now a downgrade.

This is the problem that Samsung released an interim update 1409 almost a year ago to fix a sound problem, and now they release an update 1406.4 which of course is impossible to install !!!

I now fully understand.
My recommendation would be to contact customer support as I don't know how to get around this, sorry.

  1. The only option is to release the same update but with a new number, for example 1409.1, so that we can install it.

Hi @rikob1 and @andr3a2  (and anyone else similarly affected),

 

Official statement on this for you from our TV/AV team:

 

"We are aware that the recently released software update (T-MSLDEUC-1406.3 & T-MSMDEUC-1406.4) are not available for those customers who previously installed T-MSLDEUC-1409.0 & T-MSMDEUC-1409.0.

A manual release will be made available in the coming weeks to allow these TV’s to be updated.

Once the update is made available we will post further information here.

We apologise for the inconvenience & assure all affected customers they will benefit from the stability updates included in the update in due course."
