SAMSUNG APP FOR SMART TVS

Post by marcelosore » Fri Oct 04, 2019 10:56 am

Hello friends, how are you? I recently purchased an HDHomeRun Connect (BR version) and would like to use it directly from the app on my Samsung smart TV (UN50MU6100).
I wanted you to make the application available for installation via pen drive because in the samsung store of Brazilian does not have.

I tried using DLNA but the picture freezes constantly, even though the tv is connected to the cable (gigabit).

I also tried the emby server, it even works but sometimes it freezes for no reason.

Through the official app on android and windows the navigation is much faster and fluid without freezes and with guide.

Anyway, if I could make the app available for installation via pen drive I believe it would be very good, would help many users, I do not care if it is an old version.

I am loving my HDHomeRun, thank you very much!

I have a samsung QLED 65" smart TV. When will there be an app for it? I hate having to go into channels or favorites to check each channel one by one.

We've done apps for Samsung twice in the past only to have them both killed off by Samsung for no reason. I wouldn't hold my breath for a third.

I am a bit disappointed that Samsung killed the app. I bought 2 new Samsung sets for bedrooms thinking HDHomerun would work on them based on some older videos I watched. I was somewhat OK as I could watch live tv via the source input without the guide, but that recently stopped working too and haven't had time to troubleshoot it yet.

I was somewhat OK as I could watch live tv via the source input without the guide and having to scroll through tons of hard to decipher channel decriptions, but that recently stopped working too and haven't had time to troubleshoot it yet.

I also bought it based on old videos working on smart tvs. Too bad they killed the app, if I had known I might not have bought it. : '(

I bought a Samsung just for this reason and then Samsung killed it. I will never buy another Samsung TV.

Latest Samsung TVs with Tizen OS show HDHomeRun automatically in the SOURCE section. No special app is needed!

That's just UPnP source. All Samsung TVs support that (as well as majority of the other brands of smart TVs). It treats each channel as a file. No guide and no easy way to browse channels.
