With CES right around the corner what are the odds Samsung will have an upgraded One Connect box for the Q9 giving us new features, i.e. full HDMI 2.1 and eARC? 1%? 0.0001%? 1/0 Divide by Zero Error -Inf %?

Yeah I think that's going to be a Q900 only thing. I can't see it happening with the Q9.

I think all the major manufacturers have about the same reliability, Samsung, LG, and Sony. As far as the set with the least amount of issues to distract from viewing pleasure is subjective. In some cases you have to pick what you can deal with. Every set will have issues of some kind, most are not seen in normal content. The Q8FN, 900F, are excellent mid-terr products keeping the budget in mind. Q9FN, Z9D, Z9F, and any OLED are going to give you the best performance with the least amount of distractions.

-- The most important thing to note is most people are very happy with there purchase and have little to no issues even though when you read the forums you would think different.

2018 Samsung Q9FN ''Owners thread'' ''No price talk''

Has anyone had trouble with placing a soundbar in front of the tv? The tv stand is very low profile and my sound bar blocks a small portion of the bottom of the screen.

After dealing with DSE for the past two weeks, I contacted Samsung’s tech support last night as I noticed a dead pixel too.

After about an hour of not so useful troubleshooting with the tech support technician (chat), he agreed to let me request an in-home service.
Surprise: when entering my S/N, I kept getting an error message saying that either my product was too old (over three years), or hadn’t been purchased in the US (it was). I had to spend more time with the tech so he could register my TV for me (I still can’t see it under “my products”), and he had to create the ticket for me too. So, that sucks.


Bottom line, the DSE is quite distracting, and I’m very unhappy with that dead pixel (and all the stuck ones).
I have an AA01 panel if that matters.
In your experience, what’s the rate at which Samsung agrees to replace the TV with those issues?

This probably isn't the place for this, but seeing how I'm still in the return window for my q9fn past CES I was intrigued by these.

I would also like to know more about this. None of my Samsung contacts have mentioned anything regarding a new One Connect for the Q9, and with everyone gearing up for CES getting confirmation will be problematic.

My guess is the 2019 Q9 is getting a new OC box. If there is a new box for our Q9 what's that going to cost? I already invested a good chunk

Turned it off on both the app and tv settings. It's happening less, but you can tell that the TV is still trying to dim the subtitles.

I had a problem with the set fitting on the stand and my center channel as well. Had to buy a thinner profile speaker. Even then, the front of the stand wouldn't allow the speaker to fit flush in front of it. Ended up putting a DVD case under it to raise it high enough to clear that foot stand.

I posted that as a workaround for owners who use "Ambient Mode" and are bothered by the TV powering itself down after a short period. I'm not sure how it would affect your subtitles?

The One Connect Box came about because of the Samsung Evolution Kits back circa 2014, the Evo Kits were about $300 and were pretty much only sold at Best Buy, their purpose was to switch out the box and upgrade the TV with new features every few years.

According to @Rudy1 , on my old TV thread, the Evo Kits were never popular and Samsung isn't sure if they'll ever do them again. I personally think people would like the chance to upgrade to HDMI 2.1, and the biggest reason the kits failed last time is they were too expensive and didn't offer a lot of real, meaningful upgrades.

As far as chances... probably pretty low.

I have a Samsung N850 Soundbar and had to build a small raised stand to put the TV on so it cleared the soundbar.

I'm not aware of the exact procedure, but Samsung has stated that they will provide HDMI 2.1 upgrade OCBs to owners of their Q900 on a per-request basis. Whether or not they will be willing to do so for Q9FN owners is debatable...the units were never properly marketed, and very few mainstream consumers understood exactly what they were meant to do (and even fewer saw the need for them). I don't think Best Buy ever even had display units in any of their stores, and I never heard of any in-store demos of the product. In fact, I had to explain in excruciating detail the purpose of the Evo Kit to the Magnolia Design salesman who procured the unit for me.

I'm sure they'd disagree, but I think Samsung's marketing team could've easily created a video for YouTube and TV commercials extolling the benefits of the Evo Kit. It would've certainly increased awareness of the product and boosted sales worlwide, while improving the company's reputation for customer support.

Definition of "Stupid": Knowing the truth, seeing the truth, but still believing the lies.

Do you have a source for this as im usually pretty up to date in what is happening when it comes to Tv's and as far as I know the only model that is getting the HDMI 2.1 upgrade is the Q900 which is there 8K TV so that's understandable. I don't believe i'v heard anything about the Q9 getting it.

Got everything hooked up and indeed forgot to plug the one connect into the back of the box. Was a little worried when the remote power was not responding!

Speaking of the remote, I really like the Samsung OneRemote, however, I truly wish they had included buttons for SOURCE/INPUT for quick changing and a STOP button for movies.

I really like the way the built in Apps look on the screen, they just seem to pop more than the Xbox or Apple TV. The only hiccup is that the sound is way quieter and not as dynamic. I am using optical digital out (toslink) to my Marantz receiver and it isn't all that impressive. I know ARC is a pain the butt and doesn't work all that well. Is there a better way or perhaps a setting I am missing to bring the sound to life more?

ARC is perfectly fine for the TV apps, just enable HDMI CEC control in the settings, then on your Marantz under Video -> HDMI turn ARC on, and just put the receiver to TV Audio
