Sorry, wordy post. Been a long time since I’ve posted!
I just order the viewHD audio extractor to try with this sound bar. Actually ordered 2 of them (great, more wires), one for Apple TV 4K and one for Xbox One X. I have had this K950 for about 2 years now. It’s been finicky since the beginning (wife absolutley hates how it takes multiple remotes to change sources) and I kept hoping it would improve via firmware, but it looks like Samsung is done supporting it with the N950 out now.
If the viewHD doesn’t improve my issue with HDMI dropouts and switching, I think I might sell this bar locally. What have you guys been able to sell if for? I no longer have the box, so I cant ship it. Debating going with the N950 if I find a decent sale, or throwing in the towel and going AVR and something like a Klipsch 5.1.4 setup.
Originally bought this bar for an all Samsung “seamless” setup. KS8000 TV, K950 bar, and Samsung 4K Player (all 2016 models). What a joke as far as seamless. Especially once I decided to add Apple TV and Xbox to it. Using Belkin HDMI 2.1 cables recommended by Apple for Apple TV 4K.
Currently running xbox via HDMI 1 of K950 to ARC of KS8000
Apple TV 4K to HDMI 2 of K950 to HDMI ARC of KS8000
Xfinity Cable box to KS8000 HDMI 1 then it ARC to K950
Nintendo Switch to HDMI 3 of KS8000 (then ARC to K950 which sounds terrible BTW).
I wish Samsung had included 3-4 HDMI In ports on this bar as well.
I hate this bar on so many levels, but man, I love it when its in Atmos mode....
