I find that if the TV menu speed seems a little laggy, rebooting the TV brings it back to normal. With the TV on, hold down the power button until you see the SUHD logo. Once the TV has booted, I give it two minutes and then it's back to normal. Give that a try and see if it helps.

Then, for the first time, I used Samsungs (DLNA) player to play some videos on my home pc. The source was 5.1, but it only output stereo. Based on help received here, I learned this was a problem with the tv switching to PCM even if it's set up to bitstream. So I went in the expert audio settings to manually switch the playback to DTS and it worked great.
However, ever since then, my tv will ALWAYS play stereo sound, no matter what the source (Xbox bluray, cable box, and Hulu, amazon, Netflix, and tv versions of those same streaming apps.). So now, no matter what the source, I'm always having to go im and manually set the Audio.
Everything worked flawlessly until I went into advanced audio for the first time to fix the sound for the DLNA player. Now the sound is ALWAYS stereo unless I manually set it.
Is there a way to fix this and have my tv go back to the way it was?
Also, on a separate note, is Samsung ever going to fix the issue with plex requiring to be reinstalled in order to function every time I turn on my tv? This is also beyond annoying.
This quirk seems to be the way Samsung TV's work in general. Not just his model but Samsungs in years past. If you play a DD stream and has the audio set to DD, it will play DD and stereo back and forth without issue. Once you play a DTS stream it will only play stereo, and you have to go into the settings and change to DTS. Then it will play DTS and stereo without issue. If you play DD it will only be stereo until you go into the settings and choose DD. Repeat back and forth. This has been discussed ad naseum in this thread and is a much wished for item to have it automatically choose between DD and DTS but it doesn't. Now that I finally have everything going through an AVR I haven't used the TV for anything but a display, so I finally don't have to worry about it. But before I had the new ACR, this was a very annoying quirk.
As for wondering if Samsung will ever fix the Plex app, I think it's safe to say that Samsung will never fix it. It would be up to Plex to fix the Plex app.

Does anyone know whether or not it will bet getting an upgrade to 2.1 via the one connect box? I remember finding some stuff about Samsung doing evolution kits for previous models, but couldn't find anything concrete anywhere.
The main reason for wanting 2.1 was I read that it'll have adaptive sync, and was planning on using the set as my couch gaming PC monitor as well as my TV, so would be useful to have.
No one knows. This has been discussed over and over and over as well. Samsung wasn't going to offer updates to the One Connect Box anymore, but that doesn't mean they can't change their mind. Even if they did, it wouldn't be a full implementation of 2.1. For example, the TV doesn't have an 8K panel so unlikely it would support 8K. I think it would be fair to assume a partial implementation of 2.1 if such a thing occurred. Would adaptive sync be included if it happened? I wouldn't assume so.
