MU8500: Optical output lost with Bluetooth headphones?
Hi. Would really appreciate if anyone can help with this, if only to replicate it and confirm it is a bug in the software of this TV!
I am using my new Samsung 55MU8500 with a SONOS sound bar with an optical audio connection. I have the "Sound Output" menu set to "Audio Out/Optical". That works well.
I am able to pair, connect, and use Bose QC35 Bluetooth headphones to listen to the TV. That works well too. When I turn them on, the TV prompts for a connection. But when I turn my headphones off, the sound bar no longer works. This is because the TV setting on the "Sound Output" menu goes to "TV Speaker". The setting of "Audio Out/Optical" is lost. That means that after every time I use Bluetooth headphones, I have to go back into the Settings and set "Sound Sound Output" to "Audio Out/Optical".
Anyone else seen this? Have I missed a setting somewhere?
