Seemingly a bug in internet @ tv

by popen_sarp / August 20, 2010 7:29 AM PDT

I am using Samsung Series 8 LED TV (UA46B8000XR) and I think there is a bug in the internet@tv software. I have upgraded to the latest firmware available (ver.2005.0).
Recently I tried to install Facebook widget and due to a rather slow internet connection the downloading took a bit longer than other widgets. However during the downloading phase the whole internet@tv disappears. I think it is a feature to exit internet@tv when the user is idle. However if I keep pressing different keys while it is downloading, it does not exit

popen_sarp,

Thanks for reporting your experiences. I'll be happy to pass this information to the appropriate department. However, I haven't heard too many instances of this happening, so it may just be due to the slower connection.

Thank you for the fast response and reporting this issue.
There's another issue by which some people and I are affected. ( see http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Picasa/thread?tid=30db307dd3023d0f&hl=en )

The problems is that I have installed Picasa widget and registered a Picasa account in the Account Management page.
When I use a Picasa account whose password only consists of 8 digits everything works fine. But when I use another Picasa account whose password is 17 chars long with mixed cases + digits + "]#[" characters, despite that the Account Management page confirms the correctness of the username/password, the Picasa widget tells they are incorrect. Also in the latter case (longer more complicated password) and unlike the former case, in the Account Management page, under the password column, my username is shown instead of asterisks.

popen_sarp,

I'll be happy to look into it. However, we don't design the outlay of the individual Apps, so it may need to be something reported back to Picasa directly. They own and author the widget. I'll see if I can send this up through my channels, but would also encourage you to inquire with Picasa as well.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
