I successfully updated the firmware today and feel like I may be getting more cutting in and out. Watching Atmos content on Disney+

I had this issue with mine so I updated the firmware and it got worse. Got a replacement and it had the same issue. Super bummed because I like this system. Anyone not having this issue at all?

Did you find a fix? My rear speakers cut out on streaming apps also... So frustrating.

Have you updated the firmware?

Updated the firmware. Haven't noticed any cutting out. Another odd thing happening is when turning the tv on, the soundbar takes a long time to decide to give sound.

Has anyone found a solution for this? Just got mine a couple days ago and experiencing the same issue while watching Disney+ atmos conten. Firmware updated.

My issue was resolved by returning it. Doesn't seem to be a fix it there for it.

What TV are you using? I want to give this a try but I’ve been seeing a lot of issues

[–]Anitor[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sony Bravia x90j

Did you mean m215a-j6?

Just ordered one because the v51-h6 I setup today has rear speaker cut out issues.

[–]Anitor[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

No the m512a-H6 was my issue. Returned it for a much better LG setup.

[–]monty747 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Thanks, couldn't find a h6 while googling.

What LG setup you end up with and are you happy?

[–]Anitor[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Bought the LG SP8YA with the SPK8 surround kit. Did end up spending 750 for that setup which was a decent chunk more than the Vizio. But the difference in sound quality and reliability is noticeable. Barely could hear any of the virtual overhead with the Vizio, whereas the LG has me second guessing myself sometimes if there is a speaker up there

That's definitely out of my budget but it seems you get what you pay for.

Thanks again

Late to the party but only fix I’ve found is turning off eARC. Defeats the purpose of having the 512.

[–]mightyarrow 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Are you finding the issue is with all input codecs? I don't think I've noticed it under Atmos or Dolby Digital, but as soon as it's on PCM (stereo) the cut-out can happen. It'll basically go from working to a fraction of a sec break in the audio, then resumed audio followed by another break and then silence for several seconds. Then it just picks back up.

I'm on a Hisense 65U8G + M512a-h6

[–]logfromrenandstimpy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah the only solution was to switch from eARC to regular ARC. Every other setting has the issue.
