UN7000 TV some questions?

by Rojoyinc / November 11, 2010 12:48 AM PST

First thing - seems when I turn it on - it's always on "TV" (STATIC) since I can't get cable here. I'm using Satellite and plugged into the HDMI "1"

I even labled it as TV. But it doesn't seem to default to it.
How can I do that? I'd like to EDIT/REMOVE the sources that I'm not using from the menu.

ANOTHER ONE: I'm streaming from PC videos and pics. (PCSHARE didn't work!) so using Twonkymedia. Works well.
I'd like to view the mediacenters "recorded tv" but doesn't appear to work with that format. (SEEMS ILOGICAL!) is there a way to view mediacenter recorded TV files on through the DLNA oro what ever it's called.

I guess that's my only questions at this time. It's been here 2 days and still working with it. Impressed so far.

UN7000 TV some questions?
by Samsung_HD_Tech Samsung staff / November 11, 2010 8:20 AM PST

Rojoyinc,

The TV tuner is an "always on" connection, so if the television isn't turned on after the last input was powered, then it may revert back to the TV input. The same may happen if you terminate the signal on an HDMI input, like turning off the satellite box before powering down the TV. Unfortunately, there's no "Power on default" setting for the inputs.

As for recorded content, I'm not sure what format it's recorded in - the mediacenter may not have recorded the format to be one that's compatible with DLNA. You might try re-encoding the files, if that's even possible, to formats that are supported with DLNA. I imagine there may also be a copy-protection issue in play here, but I'd have no way of knowing for sure. The easy workaround is to connect the PC directly to the TV and use the television as a monitor.

Does that help?

Does really help - but is informative - thanks!
Maybe something to add to next firmware update? (default power on input source?)

As to playing media player files. I've been working with that and did manage to re-encode them to play via DLNA. Now I just have to automate this to be quicker in batch form.

Now if you could please explain.

what is that "INFO" fuel gage!?! showing that says HDTV / CONVENTIONAL TV? and a battery icon.

Sorry to ask but the manual is POOR at best. So many things I look up for explaination say things like "Info button"... "displays info" or similar worthless explainations.

I also don't see explainations of 120hz or 240hz - I'm assuming that this is done in the smoothing? (smooth being 240? and standard being 120hz? or some such) again would be nice to actually find the technical info in the manual. (Rather than how to plug into the inputs and how to adjust volume and other (worthless drivel).
(ie: how to plug the AC cord into the wall outlet). Wink

In reply to: more questions

Rojoyinc,

I asked about the default input months ago - nothing yet, and I don't think it can or will change. It's not the fun answer, but it's straightforward.

Okay, the INFO bar is showing a few things.

1. The incoming resolution.
2. The incoming Hz.

Now, you have a 1080p/240Hz television, so any signal that comes in will be upconverted to a 1080p 240Hz picture. The INFO bar is telling you what the incoming resolution and Hz. rating is from the source. That way, you know if your cable box or Blu-Ray player is sending the resolution that you want it to.

The "fuel gauge" is the power saving Eco feature, and it's letting you know how much energy you're saving with your Edge-lit LED technology compared to conventional LCD television technology. There's no way to turn that off. Although, adjusting the Eco features shows you how much energy can be saved. If we didn't add that, people would complain that they don't have any way of knowing how much energy they're not using by using the Eco features. (Kind of a darned if we do/don't situation...) Happy

I'll talk with the development team about the manual information. I'm sorry it's not more clear, but hopefully this explanation puts it more into perspective.

Does that help? If not, ask away and I'll help if I can.

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?
