They had to update the date because they deleted that Yahoo junk.

It never worked right anyway.


OOOOOOO_________________

Something weird , I recently bought the most powerful router on the planet the Linksys WRT3200ACM , and like I did with my old WD router , I hard wired my F8K , had the same speed , ok , seems right.

BUT THEN !!!!!

I went wireless and YIKES my F8K started to levitate LOL , it has never been faster , I $h!T U Knot , it is faster wireless than hardwired.

Go Figure ?????????????????

It is simple to verify , goto: Menu >Support > Contact Samsung = there you will see the complete software set for the F8K.

We just quickly see an abbreviated version , but one and the same , none the less !!

Like if it helps

Gary,

Thanks for reminding me where to look for the software version. I had forgotten about it, but you are right, 1215.2 shows up on my set.

I think there is already a ShowTime app , there is a Showtime something.

Might not do any good , I have Starz and the Stars app won`t would with Comcast anymore , Comcast does not support it.

So while I used to have both the Stars & Encore app , I deleted them.

Good luck !!

Sorry to hear about your F8K

I have no idea how they can come up with a satisfactory replacement , because they just don`t make a tv like the F8K.

It quite literally is a dying breed.

Just think about it , at the very least . the "F" was the last to have an animated menu system.

It was the last to include 4 glasses and 2 remotes.

Mine is on it`s way out , no tv will last forever , there is a place next town over where I live , they are supposed to be Samsung Certified , that`s great , but what if you can`t get the part.

I more worried about having to shop for a new tv than I am my F8K failing , but of course it must at some point.

I have pondered over different brands , but there is nothing everyone is making junk.

If you do as much research as I have it will scare the hell out of you to find out your best choice might be Vizio

But all you have to do is put the pieces together , it`s an ugly fit to be sure , but the only fit.

So sad (:::::::::::::::

Yes, quite sad. My TV had been running perfectly with zero issues. Although I had been tempted by various 4k sets, I never saw enough of a difference in PQ to justify moving on from my F8000.

Well , the Sony XBR-75X940D would be a fair to suitable replacement , far better than most , but can you get , is it Square Trade ? anyway , can you get them to play ball ?

That would be the bare minimum , if they offer anything less , ask if the "less has all the features you did not plan on giving up" ?

Stand your ground , after all it is your ground , you paid for the warranty , it was not gifted to you.

Good luck , keep me posted , you got me curious how well they will treat you.

But remember , there are no equivalents to the F8000 , none that have ALL the features , so use that to your advantage

If you don`t mind me asking , what area of the country do you live , I live in NH , and Comcast / Xfinity is not even list as a qualifying cable provider on Starz website , it is lucky your are able to still use them,

Some time they do come in handy. For some reason sometimes the apps have different content than OnDemand , weird !!

Good to go with the Sony , anything less than an 8000 series Samsung , is just not worth it.

People scramble for sales on lesser one only to regret there purchase after the return policy is up !! LOL

Can`t really go wrong with a Sony XBR , I still have 2006 XBR , it has gotten a little dim , but still has a great picture !!
