The Nintendo Switch has had a few hiccups since launch like de-syncing Joy-Cons, scratched screens from the dock, and units being warped, but this issue is a bit on the unexpected side.
This issue deals specifically with modern Samsung TVs. The current firmware causes the TVs to change display inputs automatically when they detect that the current input is not outputting a signal. Since the Switch can be put into sleep mode, this causes the TVs to change, which of course can be pretty annoying. The Switch isn’t the only device affected by this, making it an even more widespread issue.

As a result, Samsung will be rolling out a firmware update later to this year to its TVs that will take care of it.
