If you have to change DNS on your router and it works, then your isp is preventing you from connecting tv to internet. Normally when you set up the router it uses the dns server associated with your isp unless you change it manually.

Ok, that makes more sense. If you change the DNS server on tv, then it is Samsung's servers having problems.

hopefully that will save someone some irritation.

on another note, any idea what the new software does 1207? just updated that today as part of trying to solve this issue, which was unrelated.

all this and I missed the dodgers winning 7-0 since mlbtv app wouldn't work.

sometimes I think this smart TV is rather, let's say dumb...

one hell of a picture though
