Samsung UE40C8000 country problem

by pi7er0s / May 13, 2011 7:59 PM PDT

HI All,
I bought Samsung TV when I was on my holiday in Poland. When I came back to UK and tried to install first time TV i couldn't setup UK country. I can choose all eastern countries but can't select UK. I had to select Other. I have downloaded latest firmware from Samsung UK webpage but UK is still not available. Also I tried to change country in the service mode but Country field is grey out. It is a little bit problematic as all my programs on my channel list are mixed. I need to sort it all my self.
Is there any chance to change to UK country?
My full TV model is UE40C800XWXXH
Thanks for any advice.
