I have a 5 year-old 55" QLED TV that appears to have just broken (bottom half of screen is very blurry and there are some black, horizontal lines). However, one of the issues with the TV is that although it's possible to have bluetooth audio and the speakers at the same time, it's not possible to have wired audio and the speakers at the same time. I need this for both amplifier input, as well as to feed a transmitter for hearing *****.
Can anyone tell me if any more recent Samsung TVs DO support wired (optical or copper) audio out at the same time as using the internal speakers? It's always seems crazy, and rather presumptive to have the speakers automatically cut out when using audio out.
