The big problem that I had with Samba may have been "my fault" for allowing it to be enabled on my initial setup.
The problem I'm having now, that TBS will not run even though I've uninstalled and re-installed it, twice, and done a soft reset, is unconscionable. I literally do not know what else to do, short of a factory reset.
So my TV is working ok now; I'm not confident it will continue to do so. Also, I must re-iterate, I am more tech-savvy than the average user (decades of work as a computer hardware engineer). And I doubt seriously that I'm alone; just the fact that each of us is participating in these forums is indicative of that.
Instead I'm going to buy an Apple TV 4K. It's worth the $120 (NIB ones are going cheap on craigslist around here, evidently lots of people got free ones as part of some promotion, Direct TV I think). And - unless Apple has managed to screw it up since my ATV 2nd gen, entirely possible - the interface is way superior to my retired Roku and these TVs; the rewind and fast-forward buttons work EXACTLY the same way, regardless of what streaming service you're using - what a concept !
I have an Apple TV as well. It's a much more reliable interface than the built-in apps. Now when the internal apps crap out while I'm not using them, I just disable them. Now I don't have to worry about making picture adjustments while watching Amazon, and dealing with sluggish response, stuttering AV, and other annoying issues. I can also stream from my iPhone, and access my Mac. Much happier than trying to use the internal apps. Also, iTunes, along with Netflix, offers 1080p HDR, which further speeds up viewing content when I'm just browsing. One note to mention, the ATV only outputs fixed resolution. It will automatically match native framerate and chroma, but it will only output he fixed resolution you select. I default to 1080p allowing the ATV to upscale 720p sources, and the TV to upscale to 4K. Since it auto switches into HDR on most sources, I only switch to 4K if I'm watching a real 4K movie as an "event".

The previous update, which caused the sound issues, never got to my set...at least not that I know of.
Same here, last night when I got home. So far so good.
