Customer Reviews for Samsung UBD-K8500 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player With Built-in WiFi
Once the first hurdle was passed, the picture was very nice for 4K, standard blue ray and DVD's.
The issue I have is, the player does not output audio to the TV via its HDMI output. The audio only HDMI transfers the audio the my receiver, but without the receiver, I have no audio - nothing comes out of the TV. The TV's audio worked fine with my other BlueRay player. What gives?
Did anyone else have this issue?
My only disclaimer is that it did interrupt the first time I played a blu-ray. Like it just paused, I shut it off, and then resumed play normally. Kind of weird out of the box, but it might have needed a firmware update, or it could have maybe been the disk. I didn't have chance to troubleshoot it yet.
