I don't have enough posts to link quotes from previous posts here - but based on the ones I have read in this thread I have come to the following conclusions
Please - someone let me know if I have this right:
1. Recommended apps can't be changed at all. Not resequenced, moved to "my apps" or deleted - ONLY opened (even though when you look them up in the "categories" section and see there's a little download icon, it's completely irrelevant; in fact the app doesn't need to be listed at all because it's just a duplication of the "recommended" listing, and will only "open").
2. "My apps" can only consist of items from the 3 "menus" at the bottom of the apps page - with the exception of ones already appearing in "recommended apps", which can *only* be opened (I know this is kind of redundant based on my first point, but I want to be sure).
If that's true I just wasted an hour trying to get the key press correct and re-reading the useless help files. Also, it means the whole "apps" section has to be the worst I've ever seen in a "smart" A/V device.
I'm also on my 3rd remote in 6 months. Love the player, hate the apps setup and the remote. - haven't been able to figure out how to turn the player on/off or access the apps with my Harmony 650 so I have to keep using the Samsung remote for power and menus and the Harmony only once I have something playing.
If anyone can confirm my conclusions regarding the apps I'd appreciate it - it'll save me a bunch of time continuing to screw around with it.
