You’re correct - unfortunately on newer Samsung TVs it is necessary to select the correct option for each audio format. This actually used to be automatic on the KS8000, until it was changed with a firmware update. We don’t know why they made this change.
Thanks! Do you know which version of the firmware broke it? Or when? I’d like to report it to Samsung as a bug.
Appreciate you guys! I based my purchase on your excellent info.
