IMHO, major TV manufacturers like Samsung, Sony, etc. seem to have lost their way. In the rush to make their products technologically superior and to incorporate capabilities to access Internet websites,like Netflix, Hulu+, Amazon, etc. they seem to have forgotten that in the first place users need a simple, functional TELEVISION.
Recently I bought a 5 series Samsung SmartTV with wi-fi access to internet, etc. After connecting the TV using a HDMI cable to the cable-box, I find that when I wish to change the TV channels, I must use the remote provided by the cable company. The remote provided by Samsung can only control the volume on the TV but it cannot change channels! This totally defies logic. In the past we all have always used a single remote to control both these basic functions while watching television. The TV remotes were made capable that way.
The Samsung remote does have the usual 10 digit buttons and also a +/- toggle button to change channels, but these buttons work only if, I connect this TV to receive off-the-air broadcasts channels or to a cable connection that brings unscrambled broadcasts not using a cable-box (set-top box). Such transmissions may be digital but not necessarily very sharp and probably (I am guessing) 90% of homes in US may not qualify. I was later advised that I may be able to have this "privilege" of using a single remote by spending $150 or more for another model.
A comparable TV from SONY also had similar constraints.
My advice for W0926 is explore fully and do not go by entirely what the salesman describes to you.
