Just a FYI
I alerted this so CNET staff might get a look at this. In the meantime supply the exact Samsung model numers.
Sadly I think Smart TVs are a bit oversold. They are not that capable yet folk expect the same web performance as PCs, Wii's and more. The real story is something that is more along the lines you are reporting and why I advise folk to buy for picture quality and ignore the Smart TV apps and browser. Some Samsung folk do get upset at me over this but I'll take my lumps.
RE: CNET not working on 55' HDTV Wireless 3D Tv
It is 8000 model not Plasma. So, there are complaints about it not working right? I am able to use yahoo apps no problems so I know it is not my connection. Hopefully, Samsung will do an update on this soon. This is 2012 tv btw.
Apps are one thing. That browser however...
Apps are designed to work. Browsers in TVs are trouble as folk expect them to work as good as their PC (or Wii.)
RE: RE: CNET not working on 55' HDTV Wireless 3D Tv - New!
Actually, that is a CNET app, not a brower. The browser actually works fine on the Samsung. Samsung provided a Cnet App that streams things all the time and gets updated every Wednesday. Has the CNET staff answered why their streaming is not working anymore?
They get the weekends off.
I took the liberty of reporting it via the only method I know (which works.) I am only a moderator.
Thanks for the feedback. Our app isn't currently supported on the 2012 Samsung models, and have asked that it is not displayed in the store. We're working on adapting it for the new hardware/platform.
