Just picked up the new Apple TV 4K and already having's my setup:

Apple TV 4K (2022) plugged into TV (Samsung s95b) which has a Samsung sound bar plugged in via eARC (HW800B)

Audio starts cutting out randomly when playing audio from any source. The only fix I've figured out is to plug the Apple TV directly into the sound bar, but then I miss out on the TV/Sound bard Q-symphony setup which plays audio through both the TV and the sound bar.

Has anyone had similar issues and figured out a fix? I have a PS5 and Xbox plugged in and neither have this issue.

I just purchased the Apple TV 4K 128GB model yesterday and hooked it up to my Samsung Q90 Series TV. I also have a Samsung soundbar Q750B hooked up.

After an hour or so of connecting my new Apple TV I heard a radio-like interference noise, last about 3-5 seconds. The only app I experienced this on is the YouTube TV app….so far. I heard it again a few times today.

Have you found a fix? Not sure what to do…
