Nasty firmware update butchers Samsung smart TVs so bad, they have to be repaired

I have a Sony 4k TV and Soundbar, they ARE set to auto update, but have NEVER bricked themselves, despite having several updates in the past 18 months. They DON'T play well together, despite being made by the same company. The sound drops for a few seconds then comes back and the Soundbar doesn't ALWAYS wake up or sync properly. Oh and the TV occasionally spontaneously reboots. Menu system is average, IMHO.

What DOES work wonderfully is an Apple TV4 - power that up and the TV and Soundbar both wake up. Put the Apple to sleep and the TV / Soundbar dutifully switch off - I think this is called compliance to standards.
