Anyone out there using a Q80R QLED TV with a HW-Q70R Sound bar? I have a couple questions.
1. Using firmware 1303.7 on the TV and 1006.0 on the Soundbar do you get a eARC handshake? I know, wishful thinking, but anyway... Is there an "official" Samsung announcement about either of these devices supporting eARC with a firmware update either now or in the future?
2. Using the same hardware-firmware mentioned above, can you Select "Dolby Digital +" under Sound-> Expert Settings-> Digital Output Format:? It's grey-out on my TV even while connected to the Q70R Soundbar via ARC (HDMI) and using the HDMI cable "included" with the Soundbar. (I also tested using other HDMI cables). The panel to the right of the setting reads: "Select the digital output format. The Dolby Digital + option is only available via ARC (HDMI) for external devices that support the format". Is there some other setting or input source I have to tweak to be able to select DD+?
3.- Anyone experiencing a slight lip-sync audio delay?
2. I was able to get the Dolby Digital + option enabled while playing 4K Dolby 5.1 ATMOS content via Vudu. Using YouTube, I was only able to find ATMOS demos that worked either via PCM or Dolby Digital. I was not able to find any YouTube demos that allowed me to enable the DD+ option. But, it could be that the current version of the YouTube app in the Q80R does not support DD+.
