I can't believe people in this industry still support Samsung TVs. They are terrible. Every single one we touch has an issue, be it mounting issue, connection issues, or software issues. They are ALL terrible.

Sweet! I am not telling anyone to disable auto-update. We have only a few clients who went against our recommendation and bought Samsung TVs. And fewer of those who use HDBaseT. When they update their TV, we will get not only a service call out of it, but hopefully a TV sale. :) Thank you Samsung!

You can't really win if the TVs are connected to the WAN after you successfully configure things. LG has problematic firmware as well that broke HDBaseT. Sony breaks IP control nearly every release and even when it does work not all functions are 100%. Yet another reason I never want a TV on the WAN. Want streaming devices?...use a Roku,Fire,AppeTV.

Surely there's reasons to have the TV on the network, no?

No. I try like hell to ALWAYS treat a tv as a monitor and nothing more. I have FAR less issues controlling a tv via IR than I do with IP.

What reason? Isn't this supposed to be something the writers of CEPro should know??

Such as? You need to more narrowly define "network".

LAN...sure if you are controlling it via IP. If not, no reason to have an rj45 anywhere near the thing.

WAN...hell no; not on any of my jobs it isn't.

We should know about central vac, too, and I'm deficient there as well. Ditto on most things about video and audio for that matter. OMG, don't ask me anything about HDMI. I'm particularly week on networking. I always forget what an Ohm is. Also, I barely use apps. Unfortunately, that means I have to ask a lot of questions.

Anyway, just trying to think of what might be missed if the TV weren't connected to the LAN (why would you ever connect to a WAN?).

IP control, for one. Auto updates? (We know the peril of that, but you'll have to connect at least briefly for vetted updates.) What else?

Great, add this to the list of disappearing apps and video blanking out.
