I had a similar issue where my custom picture settings were lost, and then found out that using the "service menu" automatically reverts some of your settings back to factory. I used the service menu just to look at a few things without changing any values, but when I restarted the TV all of my picture customizations were lost. However, I don't recall if the ECO setting was reverted too as a result of using the service menu.

Why shouldn't we list our equipment in our signatures? That's weird.

Is it normal for the "new and improved" smart hub to only have 3 icons instead of 5 now? I turned my TV on last night after not watching it for a few days and noticed immediately at boot that there were only 3 icons where it always had 5 since day one.

It looked more impressive with 5 icons. I know the "social" screen is gone but I don't know what else they changed. The landing screen also has a handful of channel recommendations that look like they have arabic text, so I'm not sure what that is all about either, and I don't want to click on them for fear that the "smart" hub will think that is my preference or something...

That was a change announced (ad nauseam) onscreen (if you have a Samsung account) for the past 3 weeks or so. Samsung has been steadily eliminating many of the pointless services this TV originally offered (viewing guide?!), and many apps as well. When I bought the unit, I immediately set it to boot up to live TV, as all that other stuff is so much clutter. Yes, there are only 3 icons now, and I also saw several TV services with Arabic lettering, probably the Al Jazeera version of the Golf Shopping Channel...
(Edit 1/17/16 Al Jazeera just shut down all their US channels, so it's probably not that... LOL)
