Sorry, you're going to have to clarify your setup. I don't understand why you think it's the television if the sound is dropping out from the receiver to your speakers.
I agree,... more information of your setup is needed. Are you using a fiber optic cable from the TV's Digital Optical Output to your Receiver? Are you utilizing the 'ARC' functionality of the appropriate HDMI input on your TV (of course this would require that your receiver's HDMI output be 'ARC' capable)? If one of these is the case, it could
be a problem with your TV, but I doubt it. More often the audio drop outs are due to the source.
Note: if you are utilizing the Digital Optical Output of your television to feed your receiver, you will not get full 5.1 channel audio unless you are utilizing the TV's internal tuner. As I understand it, Samsung TVs do not output 5.1 audio unless the source is the tuner. If the source is HDMI or Component Video, the Samsungs only output 2 channel stereo via the fiber optic. Of course, I may be wrong and all of you are free to correct me if this is not accurate.
As for myself I do not now, nor since about 1995, use any of my television's audio outputs unless the TV itself is the source of the audio (i.e. streaming through the TV's apps or from an over the air channel which is tuned via the TV's internal tuner). Doing so just adds one more link in the chain which could add unwanted artifacts or noise in the audio. What I do is use HDMI or Component from each individual source to the television for video only. I then use fiber optic (or coaxial digital) from each individual source to the receiver. My receiver is capable of having individually set delay times to accommodate audio/video sync.
