Samsung Q7FN and Samsung HW-N950 Soundbar
My Question or Issue
i own an Samsung Q7FN and a Samsung HW-N950 soundbar. Spotify works fine on the TV, normally.
When i play a song and press pause for 5 minutes, the sound output switches to TV-Speakers. The Samsung supports told me, that the Spotify App is responsible for this. Is that true? Are there any options in Spotify to set this "time out"?
I can't belive this.
Solved! Go to Solution.
i have a new response from Samsung. Spotify is not guilty 🙂
Translated from the german samsung support
I am now happy to explain why your Samsung Soundbar turns off automatically. This function is called "Auto Power Down".
If you have connected your HW-N950 via HDMI (ARC) or the optical output and no audio signal is transmitted for 5 minutes, the Samsung Soundbar switches off.
This function also works if you use the wireless Bluetooth function or an Aux cable. "Unfortunately, "Auto Power Down" cannot be deactivated.
I hope there will be a Firmwar update without this feature.
thanks again. Love and peace for everyone 🙂
