I disagree with third poster. It is helpful to see two others with exact tv and exact problem. I have tried a dozen things, some repeatedly.
Best guess, Internet@tv updated itself a day or two ago to a bad version. It updates apps, but doesn't "flag" the update. In internet tv, bottom left is box "Samsung Apps", and the "Settings" box one right of first box. Under settings, you can delete all but a few core apps, and the one on two apps you care about. Then you get to wait fewer minutes while those 4 or 5 apps update. That is the only progress I have made so far. Hopefully a full answer here, or I will try Samsung by phone today.
Thanks to two of three above posters!
Since I can no longer use goggle on the TV, the only thing I really use on the internet TV is yahoo. You have to use yahoo to get to the amazon app to watch amazon videos.
But in the past one hour I have gone to internet TV and have to wait about 10 minutes for it to update 17 apps.
Why does it have to keep updating the samething. And it is not even one that I need.
Can I turn it off.
The Tv used to update only on rare occasions, now its every time I go to internet TV.
Thanks for any help
