2 issues with my UN55es7150:

1. I'm trying to integrate My UN55ES7150 with a Samsung soundbar HW E350. Does eiter remote , tv or sound bar, work as a "universal"?

2. if I go into "Smart Hub" and watch You Tube, and I decide to go back to TV mode (supplied by Fios) the tv says that there is no signal. I have to turn off and on the Fios receiver and tv and all is fine.


Right now my connection goes from my Fios reciever (HDMI) to sound bar, and to tv (HDMI).


Thanks for looking.

Neither of your remotes can work as a full universal remote for both the sound bar and TV. The Sound bar remote has basic Samsung TV controls and the TV can control volume on the sound bar if you are using ARC (Audio Return Channel) via AnyNet+. To use ARC you have to plug the HDMI cable from the sound bar into HDMI-2 input (the only input that supports ARC). Unless you use a more sophisticated smart remote like Harmony One, you will need your sound bar remote for anything other than volume.

Regarding ARC, if you want the sound bar to be the sound source when using the TV built in apps or an HDMI input other than HDMI-2, you must configure AnyNet on the TV and sound bar so ARC functions.

Your problem switching between the Smart Hub and your HDMI port may have to do with your AnyNet configuration. AnyNet has to be enabled on both TV and sound bar, and on the TV the AnyNet sub-menu items should be set "Auto Turn Off = no" and "Receiver = on". If you don't set auto turn off to "no", the sound bar will power down with the TV and you will have to manually turn it back on each time you use the TV.

I hope the above helps.

How does this compare with LG7600 except the price difference, wireless keyboard, built in camera (samsung) and extra HDMI, support for 110-240V (LG)?

videoluvr - I just wanted to say THANK YOU for the detailed explanation. I thought that and adding the the Harmony 1 might be the soloution: I just hoped that all the Samsung products could be controlled by that new Samsung keyboard (shame on me for thinking that!). I'll play with those settings over the weekend.

Does this tv not support an a/v receiver's multi-source over HDMI RHID/Anynet?

I have an Onkyo RC-360, all my devices are connected to it. With my old Toshiba 670U I was able to select the source input which would be the receiver, and then select any input device connected to my receiver in a little sub menu.

Now with the Samsung, all I can do is control the volume, use ARC, and auto receiver on/off. The tv does recognize the receiver by name, but I have no options to choose a source other than the receiver itself.

Can anyone successfully switch sources on their receiver through the TV?

Set AV receiver to video pass thru. For DirecTV set it to "Native". Let your TV do the up-converting/scaling. My philosophy is to minimize the number of devices that get involved in converting/upsacaling. IF FIOS has a "Native" setting use it.

I have a Denon AVR-790. I use a Harmony remote. I use the programed 'Activity ' to select the correct input source on the Denon.

If you have a late model higher-end A/V receiver, you might want to let your receiver do the upscaling to 1080p. The Samsung does do an OK job of deinterlacing and upscaling but likely not a good as a higher-end receiver. If you can get a native, unscaled output from your sources, try scaling in the receiver, and then on the TV and see which looks better to you.

Lately when I'm watching the TV I'll see the Smart Hub flash on the screen and then go away right away.
Any idea how to fix this problem?

Where is the setting so I can turn off the Smart hub automatic updates?

I think maybe it's checking for updates.

1024 and this just started the other day.
How do I disable the Wi-Fi to the smart hub?
post #852 of 2849
I can't believe this....

My boy's are taking their afternoon nap, so I thought I'd catch up on some Tivo shows....anyways....

I'm watching my first show (Revolution) and SmartHub flashed while watching - never saw this before until now! I need to stay away from this site I think.... wink.gif

I started SmartHub and let it sit for a minute - then it prompted me to complete an update. I let it update and noticed it installed Amazon Video app.

I hope that does it and will let you know if it comes back.
post #853 of 2849
Interesting......mine did the same exact thing today.....I tried to get on the smart hub last night and there was an update that it needed, I am hoping that this is not going to be a normal occurance after my update.


I have another question for the experts......I have no issues with my picture I think it looks great, but I have noticed that when watching the end of a movie(credits) that the actual rolling credits look dark.....then as the screen fills more with credits the white letters brighten more......when there are very few credits on screen that the white letters look darker....I thought i red somewhere that this is normal for edge lit led tv.....want to be sure
post #854 of 2849
That is a function of CE dimming.

Try these settings to prevent it from kicking in as much.

turn your brightness up to 52/53.

then to counteract the increased brightness level, go to white balance and adjust your R-G-B offsets to a setting of around 17. You can tweak this to your preference.

How do I turn off the Wi Fi on this set?
Every time this set updates there is a new problem. frown.gif
post #856 of 2849
You might try this:

Turn your router off.
Then do a full system reset.
The run the initial Setup option again. Menu > System>Setup.
If it asks to setup WiFi connection, I believe you can say select not as this time.
Finish Setup procedure.
Now turn your router back on.
To go back and reconnect to WI FI: Menu>Network>Network Settings.

Notes: No way to disable SmartHub updating process with any kind of a internet connection. TV will always look for for a wired connection first. If no wired connection then will look for Wi Fi connection. Once Wi Fi connection established, there is no way to go back and use a wired connection without first disabling the Wi FI connection.

Hopes this help

well, I went over to the other ES owners threads and found a guy with a ES6500 that seems to have the Smarthub flash issue. Happens a couple minutes after turning on the TV. I think he has gone through everything possible and it still comes back....made a phone call to Samsung for them to only say its normal behavior.

I seriously think I'm done with Samsung products purely based on their half $(@)$ support structure / customer service. mad.gif


Update - I just turned off my TV, then turned it back on...within 2-3 minutes it flashed the Smarthub. @##(#$)!@_)F!!!

I think I might do a complete factory reset and take this damn thing off the network for good...I'll use my blue-ray player and TiVo for online applications.

This just started with my set yesterday after the smart hub updated it's self. Maybe the next update will fix this problem or add even more problems frown.gif
post #859 of 2849
If the next update fixes this and does not seem to create any others...my TV will remain offline for good.....but, you never know what the next update will bring.

It has been tweeted to Samsung Support. Numbers will make them pay attention... perhaps we can join in? https://twitter.com/earlmagnus/status/275025368719708160

For what it's worth, disconnecting the network cable will get rid of the flash. Going on a hunch based on seeing the flurry of network activity that coincided with the flash, I disconnected the network cable. When I turned on the TV with the network disconnected and waited two minutes, no flash occurred.

So, after the TV was going for a while, I reconnected the network cable. Exactly two minutes later, the Smart Hub display flashed.

I don't have a network cable attached, just Wi-Fi.

If you have access to Consumer reports they indicate the viewing angle narrow ,moderate and wide on sets that they have tested.
Otherwise I would check with CNET and see how they rate the off angle viewing.
Plasma does not have that problems but they have other problems .

Man how I wish I had checked Consumer Reports prior to picking up the ES6100. They plainly state the viewing angle as narrow and the HD picture as average. . Would have saved me the trouble of returning the silly thing.

They haven't done any 7000 series yet. Think I'll hold off until they do. Looks like I'm back to my good ole' HLS5087 DLP.

Ok... I'll rephrase. Any network connection...

Clearly, something in the Smart Hub was altered to call attention to itself, however unintentionally, after 120 seconds of network connectivity.

Tweet, call support, whatever... Samsung needs to hear from you or it won't see the problem.

FYI, I find our viewing angle on the 55ES7100 to be very similar to our old HLP4663 DLP if that helps you at all...I see you are also making the same type of jump I did... DLP ---> todays LCD/LED panels. I think you'll be happy. cool.gif

Just keep the damn thing off the network. biggrin.gif

If I would take my TV back, there is only one replacement and it would cost a few extra bucks.... the Sony 929/950. However, with all of the quirks, I'm still very pleased with the display.

I think you'll find other manufactures with similar quirky issues...they all have them to a certain degree.
post #868 of 2849
Yup. I was playing some borderlands 2 and for a brief second it flashed the smart hub. Just got the tv yesterday. Also today while still playing the game I went to cycle through the picture settings..after looking at movie setting I switch to the next and the whole tv turned off. Then back on? What the hell?
post #869 of 2849
