Quad Screen is not possible on Samsung
I feel Quad Screen is a Marketing trick. The M Screen button on remote just open dual screen. You can switch between screens. 1st Screen will be always cable channel. In 2nd Screen, we can open apps.
Am not trying to watch 2 or more cable channels. I just want to play different apps (1 TuneIn Radio, 2 - Youtube, 3 - Browser, 4 - Video on USB Hard Drive). I don't use Cable so It's Optional.
The Youtube video didn't explain on how to get Quad Screen. Am not trying for Video Wall with Multiple TVs/Monitors. So HDMI Switch Pro is totally out of this topic.
Any HU8550 owners who use Quad Screen?
In your case, definitely no.
I've yet to see this run multiple apps similar to say Windows did. The HDMI Switch Pro is also about true quad HDMI to 4K displays. That runs about 3 thousand or more today so we don't expect that in a TV. If you want multiple apps on screen, a PC looks to be the solution.
an different input used for each channel, and the set top box from the cable company, ever since they went digital only do one or two channels at a time anyway. Perhaps if you have a feed from DVD player, one from VCR added to the split screen, you'd get 4 screens?
Let's go with product's manual next.
Just get your seller on the phone and ask for fix or refund. Make it simple.
It's Not Hardware Issue
I bought this TV at TigerDirect online on Last Black Friday. They accept returns only for 14 days. TVs more than 40" cannot be returned.
Morever this is not Hardware Issue. It's a Feature issue which has to be dealt with Samsung. TigerDirect for sure will reply to contact Samsung for any issue. Am already struggling with Samsung Support for the 3D Issue. This is not worth to discuss with Samsung. Their Customer Care is Terrible! <span style="font-size: 14.4799995422363px;"> <span style="font-size: 14.4799995422363px;">
Why do you say it's not hardware?
The manual says it does, you find it doesn't, it's clearly a product misrepresented by seller and/or maker. Go for the refund since you can't get help from Sam.
Can't fight with TigerDirect or Samsung
It's difficult for me to fight with Samsung or TigerDirect.
Am already tired argue with them.
I need to learn to live with these.
Quad Screen mentioned in Samsung Site
I clearly checked in Production Description page on Samsung Site.
It shows this 50HU8550 supports Quad Screen.
Transform your TV into four screens that can access live TV, video clips and the web all at once. Watch your favorite golf tournament on one screen and search the web for current standings on another. Then watch a video tutorial to master your swing while navigating your Smart TV panel on the fourth screen.
But I don't know whom to contact to check this.
If maker or seller won't set it right.
You have no choice but to head to small claims court. I'm a bit surprised neither will deal with this.
Thanks for the suggestion. But am not willing to do this. Bcoz am ALIEN!
