    Hey guys, this is a long shot but I thought I'd try anyway!

    I have a Samsung HW J250 soundbar, a relatively modest piece at 80W, and it connects to my Samsung JS8500 TV by TV Sound Connect (basically, Bluetooth but Samsung devices recognise each other easily).

    Works absolutely fine for all other HDMI devices I have (PS4, Xbox One, Wii U) but the Switch is having some problems. During quiet moments (menus, loading screens - only encountered this in Zelda, but I only have Zelda haha) the soundbar will often make a few popping sounds and then turn itself off.

    By some miracle, does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this when all other devices have been fine?

    Thanks in advance.
