Thanks Jedi ! Installed and "tested" ...like you said, no difference that I can see ...hmmmm ? TV works fine, streamed a movie via NAS, "smart" hub appears to be the same ...all looks the same as it did before. Maybe they fixed some underlying bugs and/or added some new ones

I always go through the TV's menuing system to check/update to the latest firmware. If not there, maybe your region doesn't have it yet ?

Loss of Smarts

It looks like our "Smart" TV just keeps getting dumber. Here is a post from Silicondust - makers of the HDHomerun tuner and DVR software. Not sure how this affects us F8000 owners as the update number is well below the current.


Important - disable firmware auto-update on your Samsung TV today. Do not install the 1121 firmware.

Back in June we released HDHomeRun liveTV and DVR support for RUI supported by Samsung 2016 series 6, series 7, and series 8 smart TVs. DVR direct on your TV without a set-top-box.

Samsung firmware update 1121 is being pushed to Samsung 2016 TVs right now. This firmware release appears to remove the RUI feature that shipped with theseTVs.

Samsung TVs default to auto-updating the firmware - for the moment Silicondust recommends disabling the auto-update feature and not upgrading to 1121 until more information is available. Once updated there does not appear to be an easy way to roll back to the factory firmware.


We have reached out to Samsung for comment and will provide further updates as the situation is better understood.

Hi ,

I am running 1215 , firmware.

Also , just checked for an update and the "No Updates" window popped up on my F8K.

Perhaps the F8000 was never effected , I still have the RVU thing , but I have Comcast with there DVR service anyway.

Thanks though

Later ,

I saw that article; appears to be for 2016 models, that firmware rev has no relation to the F8000 series. Maybe they'll disable in a later release ? Who knows? I'm still surprised the F8000 is still getting updates.
