After having my UE60ES6300 exchanged and then refunded due to clouding, I was hoping that the PS60E6500 which I have now would be good. I am still hoping that it is, and seek feedback to confirm it with this post. Watching the Olympics opening ceremony on Friday I was very disappointed to find that we were getting intermittent audio glitches - sound dropouts for half a second or so. I have the TV hooked up to a HT-E5500, so I changed the sound to the TV internal speakers. There seemed to be no problem with that (except of course that the sound is so much inferior). I spent some of the weekend experimenting, including swapping for a different HT-E5500 box (I have another in a different room). I also tried different content. Since the problem is intermittent, I can't be sure but I think I heard some drop-outs with content from a PVR playing SD. However since the other HT-E5500 was the same I had to conclude that the TV was at fault. Then today I came across a few posts (including this one http://www.avforums.com/forums/lcd-led-lcd-tvs/1645705-samsung-ue40es6710-dolby-digital-problem.html) about the change between 1080i and 1080p with Freeview HD. I checked, and indeed the dropouts appear to be linked to the change. I still want to be 100% sure that this is not a hardware issue, especially as I am doubting that I only had the problem with Freeview HD. Please can I hear from anyone else who has had this problem? Ultimately if it is a broadcast issue the solution has to be done in firmware, so maybe we can get together to put pressure on Samsung?
