Owners of Samsung TVs are reporting issues with the Switch.
I'm running a Samsung JS series TV and I'm not having any issues... The KS which is reported in this article is the newer model of mine, so it may be isolated to that.
Same here Js8500 never had the issue occur for me.
Yeah I dont have any issues with my Samsung tv either.
The disagrees are from people that can't afford the Switch and are SamSung fanboys. According to Pac Attack.
Or maybe it's because this "It's fine for me so I'm going to ignore every possibility that it could be happening to other people" mentality has got to stop
I have a KU7000 series and sometimes I have to remove the thing from the dock due to this crap. Literally will switch to the input every few seconds
Power off the switch sleep mode makes it (switch) back to Nintendo HDMI port. It does it to the me when I play my ps4 but after I power it off I have no problems. I got power on the switch in the dock then use the pro controller to finish turning off the system.
I don't have that problem either, I have the Sony XBR 55X850D. And it works fine... maybe they should disable the HDMI Sync and then set it up again . Make sure when u enable this feature that u do it from the tv first
You can't disable it on samsung tvs. That's the problem.
There is an on/off option in the Switch's menu settings...yes you can.
@summons no there isn't, not for this issue, and you can't disable auto hdmi switching on the new samsung tv's. I have the same issue on my KS7000 and no combination of options fixes this so far. I have to undock my switch to prevent the tv from constantly changing hdmi source to the switch.
Unfortunately, I've been having this problem with my new LG TV. I have to unplug the HDMI cord from the back of the Switch when I want to watch a different source, or it will randomly "switch" back to the Switch. Not a deal-breaker for me, but it is a little annoying. Hopefully a firmware update can take care of it.
I have a LG tv as well, and I have noticed this issue myself, I figured maybe the system was auto-updating something, I wonder if Switch systems that are not internet connected are doing the same thing?
I don't have a Switch but my LG TV has a setting called Simplink and if you turn it off, it removes anything that would tell the TV to change inputs.
Instead of unplugging the HDMI, couldn't you just disable "Match TV Power State" in the Switch system settings? That's really odd though. My Sony Bravia doesn't have this issue.
That's not what that option does. And I'm guessing your bravia doesn't automatically switch source when receiving a signal over hdmi.
If it does, then I've got the option off.
Have this w my Samsung TV. It can be really bad. It's the TV's fault. Samsung has issues w other products aswell.
I have 6 devices plugged into my TV, the Switch is the only one with the issue.
Still is your tv fault...... is just that the other 6 devices hate nintendo and thats why they refuse to fail with your tv xD
Your TV is jealous of the miniature tv that is threatening it.
Sounds like your Switch is selfish.
I have a ks9000 and it happens a lot, very annoying issue
I have a Samsung TV and it does change Sources when I turn on the Switch but I am not experiences any odd behavior while it is asleep.
If you yell at Obama through your Samsung TV to fix this issue on his end, he might be able to help as Customer Support during his post-Presidential vacation.
I have a Samsung tv and I don't have a problem with it
I don't have a switch but I do have this problem with the ks8500 samsung tv. Even after you disable the anynet + feature and hdmi link on your devices the tv will still auto switch when any device connected powers on. This happens with my ps4 when it auto updates, the tv will auto switch even if I'm watching netflix. I have even returned the tv for another which didn't work so then I spoke with samsung tech support who sent me a new one connect box which didn't fix the issue. They then sent a tech to replace the main board but that didn't solved the problem either. I have since then found that this feature is built into the 8000 series and there is no way to disable it.
i have the 9000 series in 4k and no issues here
This is true but it happens VERY rarely and the simple solution is to turn off the channel changing the option in the options menu.
People need to learn how to turn off power over HDMI on their Samsung displays.
just disable HDMI-CEC on the switch. Settings Find TV Settings near the bottom Turn off Match TV Power State
I had this same issue with my KS8000 it is annoying. Glad this is reported.
I have the Samsung JS8500 and there is no problem. but there is on my KS6400.
