Is there a way to disable the Samsung start up menu when the unit is powered on? I use my UN75NU8000 tv basically as a monitor. All of the video switching is managed through an AV receiver, so I'd like to suppress the menu.
ThanksYes, under Settings go to General —> Smart Features and disable Autorun Smart Hub.

That gets rid of the lower menu, but there is still a banner at the top at start up that shows the active input. In my case that is HDMI 4. Is there a way to suppress this as well?
I upped as well to 1300.4, wish they would say what changed (they are always cryptic..lol.) was hoping they would update to work with Gsync but that's a longshot.New firmware update today 1300.4 for the NU8000 series. Here's the link to the download.
Problem solved. The default on the YAS-209 is "auto power standby - enabled". This must be disabled so that the unit is able to accept the the TV's CEC signal to turn on. Yea, kind of backwards.HDMI-CEC Problem:
I realize that this could be a Yamaha sound bar problem, but....
I have aSamsung UN65NU8000 (input: HDMI4 ARC) connected to Yamaha YAS-209 sound bar (output: HDMI Out ARC).
- TV’s remote (via CEC) can control the sound bar volume level, mute and power off.
- TV’s remote cannot turn the sound bar on.
- The TV’s HDMI4 input name switches back to the name of the sound bar, nullifying the custom name that I input (This is really strange)
The TV’s “HDMI-CEC” is set to “On”. The TV’s speakers are off; sound out via HDMI. There is a Comcast/Xfinity DVR connected to the sound bar (input: HDMI) - the DVR HDMI output is constant.
Let's hear your ideas.
The TV will not pass the bluetooth connection back to the PC. You'll need something to extend the range, and a long USB cable might be the best option. You could run a single USB cable, and use a powered USB hub instead of running multiple cables.Might be a stupid question guys but my PC is like 20 metres away in a different room and beyond Bluetooth range/usb range for keyboard mouse etc to my tv. If I run a hdmi cable from my gpu to TV and connect my Bluetooth mouse keyboard/controller to the nu8000 will that work? Or would I have to run several long usb cables alongside hdmi to get them to work? I can't find the answer to this anywhere and would like to know before investing in cables.
