Instability after 1200 firmware?
I have a 55" 2013 model (sorry I don't have the specific model # available right now). A week or two ago I saw a firmware update available and applied it. It may be a coincidence and some other factor, but apparently since then I can only watch Plex or Netflix for between about 20-50 minutes without it locking up in some manner. Sometimes Netflix just starts buffering and fails, sometimes Plex just stops responding to the remote control, sometimes the TV just turns off. Blurays from an external (Samsung) player play fine all the way through. We don't use any broadcast TV channels right now so i can't speak to that.
This is on a wired network connection, and the network seems otherwise healthy. If I plug my Chromecast into the TV, I can watch Netflix or Plex all day long.
I see a few mentions of similar issues on this thread, but if it were as predominant a bug for everyone as it is to me, I think the thread would be blowing up. Appreciate any feedback.
