Samsung TV Remote Control App for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad

iphone-tv-remote

 

Samsung has released a TV remote control app on Apple’s App Store. The free app allows users to control their television sets over Wi-Fi. The app allows to perform basic remote control functions by touching the onscreen controls or control it via gestures to change the volume/channel with the help of accelerometer after touching the screen. It also doubles up as a keyboard and a game remote control for games on Internet@TV.

The app sounds promising but here are some requirements to make it work. Firstly, users need to have Wi-Fi in their TVs or buy a USB Wi-Fi dongle separately from Samsung and secondly, the app will work with 2010 TV Models with Internet@TV only.

Some 2009 models also support Internet@TV so technically it should work but we cannot confirm it. Maybe you can download the app from here and let us know.

      Good luck getting this to work. I have a 2010 8000 series connected to the same router as the iPhone, and the only thing this app does is show an “auto discover” screen for a few seconds and then freeze.

      This DOES NOT WORK.

      App opens on a white screen and after the circle thing stops counting down it just hangs?!!

      I have a shed load of expensive Samsung HD gear that I bought 3 months ago and frankly I’m pretty hacked off that Samsung have released this before it is fully tested.

      I am one unhappy Geek!

      The Samsung UN40C6300 does not work with the remote app. I’m hopefull that someone will figure out a way to make this work or that Blu-ray players will be added to the list of recognized devices, such as the BD-C6500.

      What app is this?

      I tried this app. Works great on UN55C7000 . However, WiFi is not required as mentioned in this article. TV could be connected to the router via Ethernet cable.

      I love this app because of soft-keyboard that the iPhone app provides for TV. Searching videos on youtube or logging in to FB account becomes very easy.

      I posted some iPhone app screenshots at:

      You need a 2010 C-series Samsung TV . My TV has Dutch menu structure so I am not sure what the English menu will look like.

      iTunes states:
      “Directions : The Wi-Fi remote control performs only when connected to the same router as SAMSUNG TV and “Wireless remote control” in the setup menu should be switched on.”

      I ringed to Samsung customer service and got a feedback from their engineer that still can’t use it in their evaluation at HK samsung centre. so this app is useless in HK for any latest 2010 internet TV model. Pls wait a new version.

      My assumption is that wireless network is off in standby mode which would prevent the remote to communicate with the TV.

      Why will Samsung not support this app on Internet based Blu-Ray players like the BD-C6500? Seems to be the same functionality!

      Having had the C6500 for a couple of weeks now, there are a lot of features and functionality that are pretty scrappy!

      This could be a great device, but falls well short. I can see why it hasn’t taken off.

      Why does Samsung not simply release a quick firmware update for the TV models with Internet@TV to also include 2009 models. I feel slightly discriminated having bought my TV just a few months earlier.

      Reply
    • Frank August 27, 2010, 7:36 am

      Well Flo don’t feel so bad, as new technology comes out every year. It’s bound to happen that someone buys a TV and then the following year a new feature comes out. It happens all the time for cars, should the car manufacture be made to retro fit an older model for free just to suit a consumer that wants to compete with the Jones? No, it just doesn’t happen. So this is where you look at all avenues before you buy something. As I understand it, there is a different processor that is in the 2010 TV’s than in the 2009 TV’s therefor a firmware upgrade would do no good. Just as with computers. So if you want to feel discriminated I’m sorry that you feel that way. I’m sure that they don’t intend it that way.

      Reply
    • Shirish Payasi August 29, 2010, 2:44 pm

      @Frank. I sort of agree with you. The question is whether there is or will there be a app developed by Samsung or 3rd party to control 2008/09 models. It seems that the control is via Wi Fi nd not usual inrared. Samsung galaxy s, through its “allshare app” can stream videos, control TVs volume, jump forward the video, there is very little left to incorporate in a stand alone remote control app for older Samsung models. Technically it seems feasible, what say….

      I have new series 7 50 inch 3D plasma. The app works great. If you get a frozen screen when auto detecting try setting up manally.
      Eg. Ip 192.168.0.30
      Subnet mask. 255.255.255.0
      Then your router ip. Like
      192.168.0.254 for gateway.
      Then your ISP dns. Like 203.12.160.35
      This worked for me.

      Everyone that can’t get this to work. Always be sure your TV is powered On First. Ie you have a picture. And that you have a network connected and setup FIRST. The app is not able to turn on your TV. But can be used to turn it off. -Scott-

      Seems that all “C” series TVs work with the app. It’s only the “B” series that Samsung has abandoned, even though many of us only bought one a couple of months ago. What I fail to understand is why Samsung still had/has the “B” series on its web site as a “top of the range” TV, even though it had been made obsolete. Very bad practice and will inevitably lead to the demise of Samsung (if I have anything to do with it!).

      It works.

      The wireless remote (Dutch: Draadloze afstandbediening) was set to on (Dutch: AAN) but I could not get a connection.

      This is what I did to solve the problem for me:

      – Set the wireless remote option to OFF (Plug and play menu, last option)
      – Push enter and quit the menu and switch the TV OFF and ON
      – Start the app on the ipod/iphone and do a auto discovery. The app can’t find the TV because the option is set to OFF.
      – Set the wireless remote option to ON
      – Push enter and quit the menu and switch the TV OFF and ON
      – Start the app on the ipod/iphone and do a auto discovery. Now the app found my TV set and I could use the application

      Hope this helps for other people.
      For me the app works with a UE40C6740S and a UE32C6740S

      Up until today I fell into the “i have the right tv, but it still doesn’t work” category. I FINALLY figured it out. It was my wireless router. I have qwest DSL and I was using the qwest wireless router/modem combo as my access point. The problem was the qwest router. I am not sure what it was doing but once I eliminated it from the equation they connected. Simply put a linksys (or preferred non-crappy router) between your modem and the tv/iphone as the access point. Hope this helps the 25% that still can’t get it to work.

      Sofar the App worked flawlessly with both my iPhone 3GS and Ipad in combination with the UE46C7700.

      However, suddenly the App stopped working while settings on the TV are unchanged. iPhone and Ipad are still displayed in the TV menu as valid devices.

      Unclear what the reason is. I updates both my iPhone and iPad to iOS 4.3 but would be surprised if that caused this problem.

      By the way, my Samsung Galaxy Tab still works correct as remote.

      seems it depends on region, if visit the UK website

      http://www.samsung.com/uk/consumer/tv-audio-video/television/led-tv/UE40C7000WWXUA/index.idx?pagetype=prd_detail&tab=specification

      I can see the UK model UE40C7000 has the “Wireless Remote Control” under the feature list
      but Hong Kong model UA40C7000 doesn’t show this option in it’s spec.

      http://www.samsung.com/hk_en/consumer/tv-av/televisions/led-tv/UA40C7000WMXZK/index.idx?pagetype=prd_detail&tab=specification.

      Yes, mine is UA40C7000…………. and it doesn’t allow me to upgrade to UK’s firmware.
      it’s a kind of discrimination against Asian by a korea brand?

      also the india model doesn’t show this option in it’s page.

      HAS ANYONE REALIZED THAT NO MATTER HOW FLAWLESSLY IT WORKS, YOU STILL CANNOT TURN THE TV ON. IN OTHER WORDS, YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE TV ON FIRST BEFORE YOU EVEN CONSIDER USING IT. NOW THAT’S LAME. THE TV SHOULD HAVE THE OPTION TO STAY CONNECTED TO THE NETWORK AT ALL TIME EVEN IF IT’S OF. I HAVE A SIMILAR APP FOR MY DENON RECIEVER AND I CAN ACTUALLY TURN IT ON USING THE APP. SMART THINKING DENON. LET ME KNOW GUYS IF THERE IS A WAY AROUND IT, THANKS..

      Why will Samsung not support this app on Internet based Blu-Ray players like the BD-C6500? Seems to be the same functionality!

      Having had the C6500 for a couple of weeks now, there are a lot of features and functionality that are pretty scrappy!

      This could be a great device, but falls well short. I can see why it hasn’t taken off.

      Reply
    • Frank August 27, 2010, 7:36 am

      Well Flo don’t feel so bad, as new technology comes out every year. It’s bound to happen that someone buys a TV and then the following year a new feature comes out. It happens all the time for cars, should the car manufacture be made to retro fit an older model for free just to suit a consumer that wants to compete with the Jones? No, it just doesn’t happen. So this is where you look at all avenues before you buy something. As I understand it, there is a different processor that is in the 2010 TV’s than in the 2009 TV’s therefor a firmware upgrade would do no good. Just as with computers. So if you want to feel discriminated I’m sorry that you feel that way. I’m sure that they don’t intend it that way.

      Reply
    • Shirish Payasi August 29, 2010, 2:44 pm

      @Frank. I sort of agree with you. The question is whether there is or will there be a app developed by Samsung or 3rd party to control 2008/09 models. It seems that the control is via Wi Fi nd not usual inrared. Samsung galaxy s, through its “allshare app” can stream videos, control TVs volume, jump forward the video, there is very little left to incorporate in a stand alone remote control app for older Samsung models. Technically it seems feasible, what say….

      Then your router ip. Like
      192.168.0.254 for gateway.

      Seems that all “C” series TVs work with the app. It’s only the “B” series that Samsung has abandoned, even though many of us only bought one a couple of months ago. What I fail to understand is why Samsung still had/has the “B” series on its web site as a “top of the range” TV, even though it had been made obsolete. Very bad practice and will inevitably lead to the demise of Samsung (if I have anything to do with it!).

      Veera thanks for your comment.

      It works.

      The wireless remote (Dutch: Draadloze afstandbediening) was set to on (Dutch: AAN) but I could not get a connection.

      This is what I did to solve the problem for me:

      – Set the wireless remote option to OFF (Plug and play menu, last option)
      – Push enter and quit the menu and switch the TV OFF and ON
      – Start the app on the ipod/iphone and do a auto discovery. The app can’t find the TV because the option is set to OFF.
      – Set the wireless remote option to ON
      – Push enter and quit the menu and switch the TV OFF and ON
      – Start the app on the ipod/iphone and do a auto discovery. Now the app found my TV set and I could use the application

      Hope this helps for other people.
      For me the app works with a UE40C6740S and a UE32C6740S

      dvdb….well done this worked for me 🙂

      Those who cant see the wireless remote option….it is at the bottom of the ‘plug and play menu’ just scroll down it is there.

      I have a 7 series connected via Lan and wireless netgear router.

      Hi, I just tried this but for some reason the Plug and Play menu is greyed out and I can’t select it? I have a UE46B8000 with @Internet tv etc… Its running the latest firmware as well which is 3002/

      Any ideas as to why my menu is restricted?

      Steve,

      I read the app works only with C type tv’s.
      Maybe that is the reason?
      Are all options in the plug and play menu are grayed out?
      Do you see the remote control option?

      Up until today I fell into the “i have the right tv, but it still doesn’t work” category. I FINALLY figured it out. It was my wireless router. I have qwest DSL and I was using the qwest wireless router/modem combo as my access point. The problem was the qwest router. I am not sure what it was doing but once I eliminated it from the equation they connected. Simply put a linksys (or preferred non-crappy router) between your modem and the tv/iphone as the access point. Hope this helps the 25% that still can’t get it to work.

      TV is UN55C6500

      it Detects and connects to my LN46C650 fine but after around 4 seconds it disconnects saying “network “Disconnected.. Network Connection Failure..”

      Durring that 4 seconds I can control the tv fine. Its just a giant tease this would be so cool if it worked!!

      Sofar the App worked flawlessly with both my iPhone 3GS and Ipad in combination with the UE46C7700.

      However, suddenly the App stopped working while settings on the TV are unchanged. iPhone and Ipad are still displayed in the TV menu as valid devices.

      Unclear what the reason is. I updates both my iPhone and iPad to iOS 4.3 but would be surprised if that caused this problem.

      By the way, my Samsung Galaxy Tab still works correct as remote.

      Having had the C6500 for a couple of weeks now, there are a lot of features and functionality that are pretty scrappy!

    • Frank August 27, 2010, 7:36 am

      Well Flo don’t feel so bad, as new technology comes out every year. It’s bound to happen that someone buys a TV and then the following year a new feature comes out. It happens all the time for cars, should the car manufacture be made to retro fit an older model for free just to suit a consumer that wants to compete with the Jones? No, it just doesn’t happen. So this is where you look at all avenues before you buy something. As I understand it, there is a different processor that is in the 2010 TV’s than in the 2009 TV’s therefor a firmware upgrade would do no good. Just as with computers. So if you want to feel discriminated I’m sorry that you feel that way. I’m sure that they don’t intend it that way.

      Reply
    • Shirish Payasi August 29, 2010, 2:44 pm

      @Frank. I sort of agree with you. The question is whether there is or will there be a app developed by Samsung or 3rd party to control 2008/09 models. It seems that the control is via Wi Fi nd not usual inrared. Samsung galaxy s, through its “allshare app” can stream videos, control TVs volume, jump forward the video, there is very little left to incorporate in a stand alone remote control app for older Samsung models. Technically it seems feasible, what say….

      Then your router ip. Like
      192.168.0.254 for gateway.

Any other place where it can be downloaded? I want to try it with my 2010 UN46C7000WMXZB. Thks!

      App doesn’t work with Samsung 8000 series LED TV bought new about one month ago. iPhone just says that the devices have to be on the same access point ……. please check network settings. Looked at network settings and devices on the network (via laptop) and they were all there! Crap App !

      Everyone that can’t get this to work. Always be sure your TV is powered On First. Ie you have a picture. And that you have a network connected and setup FIRST. The app is not able to turn on your TV. But can be used to turn it off. -Scott-

      @Cavan,

      I have the 55″8000 series and the app works fine, the tv is wired into a router and the iphone picks it up from there wireless. Initial search brought a confirmation screen on the tv to allow access for the iphone, but does it automatically once app is started.

      Hi Brian! I had that problem too… i had to trick iTunes Store and open an account in the US, for that matter only (I found plenty of forums explaining how to do it). Once I did that, i donwloaded the app and installed it both on my 1st and 2nd generation iPod Touch and it works perfectly with my UN46C7000WMXZB, made in Brazil. Hope it helps!

      have noticed,with increasing anger and despair, that Samsung have little interest in developing anything that makes it easy to use Mac with Samsung, whether it be internet wireless or connecting a mac to tv. this is despite them being a provider for mac!!!

      all they ever say it is too hard, yet they are working with mac…..who is the stopper here??

      I tried this today on my 6 series tv – UE40C6000 and it works perfectly. I first upgraded the firmware which is easy if your tv is connected to the internet. Mine is not connected via wireless but ethernet cable.Then ensure wireless remote option is on in network settings.

      Seems that all “C” series TVs work with the app. It’s only the “B” series that Samsung has abandoned, even though many of us only bought one a couple of months ago. What I fail to understand is why Samsung still had/has the “B” series on its web site as a “top of the range” TV, even though it had been made obsolete. Very bad practice and will inevitably lead to the demise of Samsung (if I have anything to do with it!).

      Ipod os4 with app connected to the same accesspoint.

      Both are C types.
      After starting the app it does an auto discovery but no results.
      Updated both TV’s to softwareversion 2010/11/04_003003. (Previous version 002004)

      Veera thanks for your comment.

      It works.

      The wireless remote (Dutch: Draadloze afstandbediening) was set to on (Dutch: AAN) but I could not get a connection.

      This is what I did to solve the problem for me:

      – Set the wireless remote option to OFF (Plug and play menu, last option)
      – Push enter and quit the menu and switch the TV OFF and ON
      – Start the app on the ipod/iphone and do a auto discovery. The app can’t find the TV because the option is set to OFF.
      – Set the wireless remote option to ON
      – Push enter and quit the menu and switch the TV OFF and ON
      – Start the app on the ipod/iphone and do a auto discovery. Now the app found my TV set and I could use the application

      Hope this helps for other people.
      For me the app works with a UE40C6740S and a UE32C6740S

      Up until today I fell into the “i have the right tv, but it still doesn’t work” category. I FINALLY figured it out. It was my wireless router. I have qwest DSL and I was using the qwest wireless router/modem combo as my access point. The problem was the qwest router. I am not sure what it was doing but once I eliminated it from the equation they connected. Simply put a linksys (or preferred non-crappy router) between your modem and the tv/iphone as the access point. Hope this helps the 25% that still can’t get it to work.

      Sofar the App worked flawlessly with both my iPhone 3GS and Ipad in combination with the UE46C7700.

      However, suddenly the App stopped working while settings on the TV are unchanged. iPhone and Ipad are still displayed in the TV menu as valid devices.

      Unclear what the reason is. I updates both my iPhone and iPad to iOS 4.3 but would be surprised if that caused this problem.

      By the way, my Samsung Galaxy Tab still works correct as remote.

      I tried this app. Works great on UN55C7000 . However, WiFi is not required as mentioned in this article. TV could be connected to the router via Ethernet cable.

      I love this app because of soft-keyboard that the iPhone app provides for TV. Searching videos on youtube or logging in to FB account becomes very easy.

      I posted some iPhone app screenshots at:

      You need a 2010 C-series Samsung TV . My TV has Dutch menu structure so I am not sure what the English menu will look like.

      iTunes states:
      “Directions : The Wi-Fi remote control performs only when connected to the same router as SAMSUNG TV and “Wireless remote control” in the setup menu should be switched on.”

      I ringed to Samsung customer service and got a feedback from their engineer that still can’t use it in their evaluation at HK samsung centre. so this app is useless in HK for any latest 2010 internet TV model. Pls wait a new version.

      My assumption is that wireless network is off in standby mode which would prevent the remote to communicate with the TV.

      Why will Samsung not support this app on Internet based Blu-Ray players like the BD-C6500? Seems to be the same functionality!

      Having had the C6500 for a couple of weeks now, there are a lot of features and functionality that are pretty scrappy!

      This could be a great device, but falls well short. I can see why it hasn’t taken off.

      Why does Samsung not simply release a quick firmware update for the TV models with Internet@TV to also include 2009 models. I feel slightly discriminated having bought my TV just a few months earlier.

      Reply
    • Frank August 27, 2010, 7:36 am

      Well Flo don’t feel so bad, as new technology comes out every year. It’s bound to happen that someone buys a TV and then the following year a new feature comes out. It happens all the time for cars, should the car manufacture be made to retro fit an older model for free just to suit a consumer that wants to compete with the Jones? No, it just doesn’t happen. So this is where you look at all avenues before you buy something. As I understand it, there is a different processor that is in the 2010 TV’s than in the 2009 TV’s therefor a firmware upgrade would do no good. Just as with computers. So if you want to feel discriminated I’m sorry that you feel that way. I’m sure that they don’t intend it that way.

      Reply
    • Shirish Payasi August 29, 2010, 2:44 pm

      @Frank. I sort of agree with you. The question is whether there is or will there be a app developed by Samsung or 3rd party to control 2008/09 models. It seems that the control is via Wi Fi nd not usual inrared. Samsung galaxy s, through its “allshare app” can stream videos, control TVs volume, jump forward the video, there is very little left to incorporate in a stand alone remote control app for older Samsung models. Technically it seems feasible, what say….

      Eg. Ip 192.168.0.30
      Subnet mask. 255.255.255.0
      Then your router ip. Like
      192.168.0.254 for gateway.
      Then your ISP dns. Like 203.12.160.35
      This worked for me.

      Seems that all “C” series TVs work with the app. It’s only the “B” series that Samsung has abandoned, even though many of us only bought one a couple of months ago. What I fail to understand is why Samsung still had/has the “B” series on its web site as a “top of the range” TV, even though it had been made obsolete. Very bad practice and will inevitably lead to the demise of Samsung (if I have anything to do with it!).

      It works.

      The wireless remote (Dutch: Draadloze afstandbediening) was set to on (Dutch: AAN) but I could not get a connection.

      This is what I did to solve the problem for me:

      – Set the wireless remote option to OFF (Plug and play menu, last option)
      – Push enter and quit the menu and switch the TV OFF and ON
      – Start the app on the ipod/iphone and do a auto discovery. The app can’t find the TV because the option is set to OFF.
      – Set the wireless remote option to ON
      – Push enter and quit the menu and switch the TV OFF and ON
      – Start the app on the ipod/iphone and do a auto discovery. Now the app found my TV set and I could use the application

      Hope this helps for other people.
      For me the app works with a UE40C6740S and a UE32C6740S

      Up until today I fell into the “i have the right tv, but it still doesn’t work” category. I FINALLY figured it out. It was my wireless router. I have qwest DSL and I was using the qwest wireless router/modem combo as my access point. The problem was the qwest router. I am not sure what it was doing but once I eliminated it from the equation they connected. Simply put a linksys (or preferred non-crappy router) between your modem and the tv/iphone as the access point. Hope this helps the 25% that still can’t get it to work.

      However, suddenly the App stopped working while settings on the TV are unchanged. iPhone and Ipad are still displayed in the TV menu as valid devices.

      Unclear what the reason is. I updates both my iPhone and iPad to iOS 4.3 but would be surprised if that caused this problem.

      Hi Mark… thanks for this posting. Quick question. I have the newly discontinued UN55C9000 and have successfully set it up on the home WiFi network. However, after downloading the app, it never recognized the TV. I have a Verizon iPhone and have this growing suspicion that there is a firmware bias/delay there. Any thoughts?

      HAS ANYONE REALIZED THAT NO MATTER HOW FLAWLESSLY IT WORKS, YOU STILL CANNOT TURN THE TV ON. IN OTHER WORDS, YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE TV ON FIRST BEFORE YOU EVEN CONSIDER USING IT. NOW THAT’S LAME. THE TV SHOULD HAVE THE OPTION TO STAY CONNECTED TO THE NETWORK AT ALL TIME EVEN IF IT’S OF. I HAVE A SIMILAR APP FOR MY DENON RECIEVER AND I CAN ACTUALLY TURN IT ON USING THE APP. SMART THINKING DENON. LET ME KNOW GUYS IF THERE IS A WAY AROUND IT, THANKS..

        I had the same problem after I updated my iPad OS. What you need to do is remove the device from the allowed devices on the TV and then re-add your iPad just like when you first installed the Samsung iPad app.

        Hope this helps…

      I love this app because of soft-keyboard that the iPhone app provides for TV. Searching videos on youtube or logging in to FB account becomes very easy.

      Why will Samsung not support this app on Internet based Blu-Ray players like the BD-C6500? Seems to be the same functionality!

      Having had the C6500 for a couple of weeks now, there are a lot of features and functionality that are pretty scrappy!

      This could be a great device, but falls well short. I can see why it hasn’t taken off.

      Reply
    • Frank August 27, 2010, 7:36 am

      Well Flo don’t feel so bad, as new technology comes out every year. It’s bound to happen that someone buys a TV and then the following year a new feature comes out. It happens all the time for cars, should the car manufacture be made to retro fit an older model for free just to suit a consumer that wants to compete with the Jones? No, it just doesn’t happen. So this is where you look at all avenues before you buy something. As I understand it, there is a different processor that is in the 2010 TV’s than in the 2009 TV’s therefor a firmware upgrade would do no good. Just as with computers. So if you want to feel discriminated I’m sorry that you feel that way. I’m sure that they don’t intend it that way.

      Reply
    • Shirish Payasi August 29, 2010, 2:44 pm

      @Frank. I sort of agree with you. The question is whether there is or will there be a app developed by Samsung or 3rd party to control 2008/09 models. It seems that the control is via Wi Fi nd not usual inrared. Samsung galaxy s, through its “allshare app” can stream videos, control TVs volume, jump forward the video, there is very little left to incorporate in a stand alone remote control app for older Samsung models. Technically it seems feasible, what say….

      Eg. Ip 192.168.0.30
      Subnet mask. 255.255.255.0
      Then your router ip. Like
      192.168.0.254 for gateway.
      Then your ISP dns. Like 203.12.160.35

      Seems that all “C” series TVs work with the app. It’s only the “B” series that Samsung has abandoned, even though many of us only bought one a couple of months ago. What I fail to understand is why Samsung still had/has the “B” series on its web site as a “top of the range” TV, even though it had been made obsolete. Very bad practice and will inevitably lead to the demise of Samsung (if I have anything to do with it!).

      It works.

      The wireless remote (Dutch: Draadloze afstandbediening) was set to on (Dutch: AAN) but I could not get a connection.

      This is what I did to solve the problem for me:

      – Set the wireless remote option to OFF (Plug and play menu, last option)
      – Push enter and quit the menu and switch the TV OFF and ON
      – Start the app on the ipod/iphone and do a auto discovery. The app can’t find the TV because the option is set to OFF.
      – Set the wireless remote option to ON
      – Push enter and quit the menu and switch the TV OFF and ON
      – Start the app on the ipod/iphone and do a auto discovery. Now the app found my TV set and I could use the application

      Hope this helps for other people.
      For me the app works with a UE40C6740S and a UE32C6740S

      I too have a UE40C6000 and I cannot find the wireless remote option on the menu. The manual states that this option should be there, but it is not visible.

      mas could you please let me know on your tv (UE40C6000) where this menu option is, I’m wondering if a firmware upgrade has removed it?

      Works nicely on 40C6530 using wired connection over homeplug network to adsl. Had to use manual network settings and it worked. Initial connection has to be authorised by tv remote and it then auto connects. Great App

      Up until today I fell into the “i have the right tv, but it still doesn’t work” category. I FINALLY figured it out. It was my wireless router. I have qwest DSL and I was using the qwest wireless router/modem combo as my access point. The problem was the qwest router. I am not sure what it was doing but once I eliminated it from the equation they connected. Simply put a linksys (or preferred non-crappy router) between your modem and the tv/iphone as the access point. Hope this helps the 25% that still can’t get it to work.

      TV is UN55C6500

      I have a C700 model. It works fine with some all other wireless networks then mine. I have tested it with friends wireless network and the iphone application controlled the TV but when i choose my wireless network it can not pass the searching for TV part on iphone. Is there a specific setting on router that may interrupt the communication between iphone and the TV?

      This looks like a great app but will not work for me.

      it Detects and connects to my LN46C650 fine but after around 4 seconds it disconnects saying “network “Disconnected.. Network Connection Failure..”

      Durring that 4 seconds I can control the tv fine. Its just a giant tease this would be so cool if it worked!!

      if anyone knows a fix to this please send me an email I would be REALLY greatful.

      Sofar the App worked flawlessly with both my iPhone 3GS and Ipad in combination with the UE46C7700.

      However, suddenly the App stopped working while settings on the TV are unchanged. iPhone and Ipad are still displayed in the TV menu as valid devices.

      Unclear what the reason is. I updates both my iPhone and iPad to iOS 4.3 but would be surprised if that caused this problem.

      By the way, my Samsung Galaxy Tab still works correct as remote.

      it’s a kind of discrimination against Asian by a korea brand?

THE TV SHOULD HAVE THE OPTION TO STAY CONNECTED TO THE NETWORK AT ALL TIME EVEN IF IT’S OF. I HAVE A SIMILAR APP FOR MY DENON RECIEVER AND I CAN ACTUALLY TURN IT ON USING THE APP.

      Reply
    • Frank August 27, 2010, 7:36 am

      Well Flo don’t feel so bad, as new technology comes out every year. It’s bound to happen that someone buys a TV and then the following year a new feature comes out. It happens all the time for cars, should the car manufacture be made to retro fit an older model for free just to suit a consumer that wants to compete with the Jones? No, it just doesn’t happen. So this is where you look at all avenues before you buy something. As I understand it, there is a different processor that is in the 2010 TV’s than in the 2009 TV’s therefor a firmware upgrade would do no good. Just as with computers. So if you want to feel discriminated I’m sorry that you feel that way. I’m sure that they don’t intend it that way.

      Reply
    • Shirish Payasi August 29, 2010, 2:44 pm

      @Frank. I sort of agree with you. The question is whether there is or will there be a app developed by Samsung or 3rd party to control 2008/09 models. It seems that the control is via Wi Fi nd not usual inrared. Samsung galaxy s, through its “allshare app” can stream videos, control TVs volume, jump forward the video, there is very little left to incorporate in a stand alone remote control app for older Samsung models. Technically it seems feasible, what say….

      Then your router ip. Like
      192.168.0.254 for gateway.

      I tried this today on my 6 series tv – UE40C6000 and it works perfectly. I first upgraded the firmware which is easy if your tv is connected to the internet. Mine is not connected via wireless but ethernet cable.Then ensure wireless remote option is on in network settings.

      Seems that all “C” series TVs work with the app. It’s only the “B” series that Samsung has abandoned, even though many of us only bought one a couple of months ago. What I fail to understand is why Samsung still had/has the “B” series on its web site as a “top of the range” TV, even though it had been made obsolete. Very bad practice and will inevitably lead to the demise of Samsung (if I have anything to do with it!).

      I can’t get it to work.
      I connected a UE40C6740S with samsung wireless USB stick and a UE32C6740S with a cable to the same network and accesspoint.
      Ipod os4 with app connected to the same accesspoint.

      Both are C types.
      After starting the app it does an auto discovery but no results.
      Updated both TV’s to softwareversion 2010/11/04_003003. (Previous version 002004)

      Anyone with tips?

      Veera thanks for your comment.

      It works.

      The wireless remote (Dutch: Draadloze afstandbediening) was set to on (Dutch: AAN) but I could not get a connection.

      This is what I did to solve the problem for me:

      – Set the wireless remote option to OFF (Plug and play menu, last option)
      – Push enter and quit the menu and switch the TV OFF and ON
      – Start the app on the ipod/iphone and do a auto discovery. The app can’t find the TV because the option is set to OFF.
      – Set the wireless remote option to ON
      – Push enter and quit the menu and switch the TV OFF and ON
      – Start the app on the ipod/iphone and do a auto discovery. Now the app found my TV set and I could use the application

      Hope this helps for other people.
      For me the app works with a UE40C6740S and a UE32C6740S

      Are all options in the plug and play menu are grayed out?
      Do you see the remote control option?

      Up until today I fell into the “i have the right tv, but it still doesn’t work” category. I FINALLY figured it out. It was my wireless router. I have qwest DSL and I was using the qwest wireless router/modem combo as my access point. The problem was the qwest router. I am not sure what it was doing but once I eliminated it from the equation they connected. Simply put a linksys (or preferred non-crappy router) between your modem and the tv/iphone as the access point. Hope this helps the 25% that still can’t get it to work.

      Durring that 4 seconds I can control the tv fine. Its just a giant tease this would be so cool if it worked!!

      Sofar the App worked flawlessly with both my iPhone 3GS and Ipad in combination with the UE46C7700.

      However, suddenly the App stopped working while settings on the TV are unchanged. iPhone and Ipad are still displayed in the TV menu as valid devices.

      Unclear what the reason is. I updates both my iPhone and iPad to iOS 4.3 but would be surprised if that caused this problem.

      By the way, my Samsung Galaxy Tab still works correct as remote.

      Why will Samsung not support this app on Internet based Blu-Ray players like the BD-C6500? Seems to be the same functionality!

      Having had the C6500 for a couple of weeks now, there are a lot of features and functionality that are pretty scrappy!

      This could be a great device, but falls well short. I can see why it hasn’t taken off.

      What if you have multiple Samsung TVs on the same network. Will you be able to pick the TV you want to control or will the app apply your changes to all TVs at the same time ? Please advise. Thanks.

      Why does Samsung not simply release a quick firmware update for the TV models with Internet@TV to also include 2009 models. I feel slightly discriminated having bought my TV just a few months earlier.

    • Frank August 27, 2010, 7:36 am

      Well Flo don’t feel so bad, as new technology comes out every year. It’s bound to happen that someone buys a TV and then the following year a new feature comes out. It happens all the time for cars, should the car manufacture be made to retro fit an older model for free just to suit a consumer that wants to compete with the Jones? No, it just doesn’t happen. So this is where you look at all avenues before you buy something. As I understand it, there is a different processor that is in the 2010 TV’s than in the 2009 TV’s therefor a firmware upgrade would do no good. Just as with computers. So if you want to feel discriminated I’m sorry that you feel that way. I’m sure that they don’t intend it that way.

    • Shirish Payasi August 29, 2010, 2:44 pm

      @Frank. I sort of agree with you. The question is whether there is or will there be a app developed by Samsung or 3rd party to control 2008/09 models. It seems that the control is via Wi Fi nd not usual inrared. Samsung galaxy s, through its “allshare app” can stream videos, control TVs volume, jump forward the video, there is very little left to incorporate in a stand alone remote control app for older Samsung models. Technically it seems feasible, what say….

      I have new series 7 50 inch 3D plasma. The app works great. If you get a frozen screen when auto detecting try setting up manally.
      Eg. Ip 192.168.0.30
      Subnet mask. 255.255.255.0
      Then your router ip. Like
      192.168.0.254 for gateway.
      Then your ISP dns. Like 203.12.160.35
      This worked for me.

      Seems that all “C” series TVs work with the app. It’s only the “B” series that Samsung has abandoned, even though many of us only bought one a couple of months ago. What I fail to understand is why Samsung still had/has the “B” series on its web site as a “top of the range” TV, even though it had been made obsolete. Very bad practice and will inevitably lead to the demise of Samsung (if I have anything to do with it!).

      Veera thanks for your comment.

      It works.

      The wireless remote (Dutch: Draadloze afstandbediening) was set to on (Dutch: AAN) but I could not get a connection.

      This is what I did to solve the problem for me:

      – Set the wireless remote option to OFF (Plug and play menu, last option)
      – Push enter and quit the menu and switch the TV OFF and ON
      – Start the app on the ipod/iphone and do a auto discovery. The app can’t find the TV because the option is set to OFF.
      – Set the wireless remote option to ON
      – Push enter and quit the menu and switch the TV OFF and ON
      – Start the app on the ipod/iphone and do a auto discovery. Now the app found my TV set and I could use the application

      Hope this helps for other people.
      For me the app works with a UE40C6740S and a UE32C6740S

      Up until today I fell into the “i have the right tv, but it still doesn’t work” category. I FINALLY figured it out. It was my wireless router. I have qwest DSL and I was using the qwest wireless router/modem combo as my access point. The problem was the qwest router. I am not sure what it was doing but once I eliminated it from the equation they connected. Simply put a linksys (or preferred non-crappy router) between your modem and the tv/iphone as the access point. Hope this helps the 25% that still can’t get it to work.

        Hope this helps…

      This DOES NOT WORK.

      App opens on a white screen and after the circle thing stops counting down it just hangs?!!

      I have a shed load of expensive Samsung HD gear that I bought 3 months ago and frankly I’m pretty hacked off that Samsung have released this before it is fully tested.

      I love this app because of soft-keyboard that the iPhone app provides for TV. Searching videos on youtube or logging in to FB account becomes very easy.

      Why will Samsung not support this app on Internet based Blu-Ray players like the BD-C6500? Seems to be the same functionality!

      Having had the C6500 for a couple of weeks now, there are a lot of features and functionality that are pretty scrappy!

      This could be a great device, but falls well short. I can see why it hasn’t taken off.

      Why does Samsung not simply release a quick firmware update for the TV models with Internet@TV to also include 2009 models. I feel slightly discriminated having bought my TV just a few months earlier.

      Reply
    • Frank August 27, 2010, 7:36 am

      Well Flo don’t feel so bad, as new technology comes out every year. It’s bound to happen that someone buys a TV and then the following year a new feature comes out. It happens all the time for cars, should the car manufacture be made to retro fit an older model for free just to suit a consumer that wants to compete with the Jones? No, it just doesn’t happen. So this is where you look at all avenues before you buy something. As I understand it, there is a different processor that is in the 2010 TV’s than in the 2009 TV’s therefor a firmware upgrade would do no good. Just as with computers. So if you want to feel discriminated I’m sorry that you feel that way. I’m sure that they don’t intend it that way.

      Reply
    • Shirish Payasi August 29, 2010, 2:44 pm

      @Frank. I sort of agree with you. The question is whether there is or will there be a app developed by Samsung or 3rd party to control 2008/09 models. It seems that the control is via Wi Fi nd not usual inrared. Samsung galaxy s, through its “allshare app” can stream videos, control TVs volume, jump forward the video, there is very little left to incorporate in a stand alone remote control app for older Samsung models. Technically it seems feasible, what say….

      Then your router ip. Like
      192.168.0.254 for gateway.
      Then your ISP dns. Like 203.12.160.35

      Seems that all “C” series TVs work with the app. It’s only the “B” series that Samsung has abandoned, even though many of us only bought one a couple of months ago. What I fail to understand is why Samsung still had/has the “B” series on its web site as a “top of the range” TV, even though it had been made obsolete. Very bad practice and will inevitably lead to the demise of Samsung (if I have anything to do with it!).

      It works.

      The wireless remote (Dutch: Draadloze afstandbediening) was set to on (Dutch: AAN) but I could not get a connection.

      This is what I did to solve the problem for me:

      – Set the wireless remote option to OFF (Plug and play menu, last option)
      – Push enter and quit the menu and switch the TV OFF and ON
      – Start the app on the ipod/iphone and do a auto discovery. The app can’t find the TV because the option is set to OFF.
      – Set the wireless remote option to ON
      – Push enter and quit the menu and switch the TV OFF and ON
      – Start the app on the ipod/iphone and do a auto discovery. Now the app found my TV set and I could use the application

      Hope this helps for other people.
      For me the app works with a UE40C6740S and a UE32C6740S

      Up until today I fell into the “i have the right tv, but it still doesn’t work” category. I FINALLY figured it out. It was my wireless router. I have qwest DSL and I was using the qwest wireless router/modem combo as my access point. The problem was the qwest router. I am not sure what it was doing but once I eliminated it from the equation they connected. Simply put a linksys (or preferred non-crappy router) between your modem and the tv/iphone as the access point. Hope this helps the 25% that still can’t get it to work.

      Sofar the App worked flawlessly with both my iPhone 3GS and Ipad in combination with the UE46C7700.

      However, suddenly the App stopped working while settings on the TV are unchanged. iPhone and Ipad are still displayed in the TV menu as valid devices.

      Unclear what the reason is. I updates both my iPhone and iPad to iOS 4.3 but would be surprised if that caused this problem.

      By the way, my Samsung Galaxy Tab still works correct as remote.

      seems it depends on region, if visit the UK website

      I can see the UK model UE40C7000 has the “Wireless Remote Control” under the feature list
      but Hong Kong model UA40C7000 doesn’t show this option in it’s spec.

      http://www.samsung.com/hk_en/consumer/tv-av/televisions/led-tv/UA40C7000WMXZK/index.idx?pagetype=prd_detail&tab=specification.

      Yes, mine is UA40C7000…………. and it doesn’t allow me to upgrade to UK’s firmware.
      it’s a kind of discrimination against Asian by a korea brand?

      also the india model doesn’t show this option in it’s page.

      HAS ANYONE REALIZED THAT NO MATTER HOW FLAWLESSLY IT WORKS, YOU STILL CANNOT TURN THE TV ON. IN OTHER WORDS, YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE TV ON FIRST BEFORE YOU EVEN CONSIDER USING IT. NOW THAT’S LAME. THE TV SHOULD HAVE THE OPTION TO STAY CONNECTED TO THE NETWORK AT ALL TIME EVEN IF IT’S OF. I HAVE A SIMILAR APP FOR MY DENON RECIEVER AND I CAN ACTUALLY TURN IT ON USING THE APP. SMART THINKING DENON. LET ME KNOW GUYS IF THERE IS A WAY AROUND IT, THANKS..

      Having had the C6500 for a couple of weeks now, there are a lot of features and functionality that are pretty scrappy!

      This could be a great device, but falls well short. I can see why it hasn’t taken off.

    • Frank August 27, 2010, 7:36 am

      Well Flo don’t feel so bad, as new technology comes out every year. It’s bound to happen that someone buys a TV and then the following year a new feature comes out. It happens all the time for cars, should the car manufacture be made to retro fit an older model for free just to suit a consumer that wants to compete with the Jones? No, it just doesn’t happen. So this is where you look at all avenues before you buy something. As I understand it, there is a different processor that is in the 2010 TV’s than in the 2009 TV’s therefor a firmware upgrade would do no good. Just as with computers. So if you want to feel discriminated I’m sorry that you feel that way. I’m sure that they don’t intend it that way.

      Reply
    • Shirish Payasi August 29, 2010, 2:44 pm

      @Frank. I sort of agree with you. The question is whether there is or will there be a app developed by Samsung or 3rd party to control 2008/09 models. It seems that the control is via Wi Fi nd not usual inrared. Samsung galaxy s, through its “allshare app” can stream videos, control TVs volume, jump forward the video, there is very little left to incorporate in a stand alone remote control app for older Samsung models. Technically it seems feasible, what say….

      Then your router ip. Like

      Seems that all “C” series TVs work with the app. It’s only the “B” series that Samsung has abandoned, even though many of us only bought one a couple of months ago. What I fail to understand is why Samsung still had/has the “B” series on its web site as a “top of the range” TV, even though it had been made obsolete. Very bad practice and will inevitably lead to the demise of Samsung (if I have anything to do with it!).

      Updated both TV’s to softwareversion 2010/11/04_003003. (Previous version 002004)

      Anyone with tips?

      Thanks, dvdb

      I copied and pasted this option from the earlier post..

      Did you enable the “wireless remote” setting in the TV menu already. If not it will certainly not work.

      Veera thanks for your comment.

      It works.

      The wireless remote (Dutch: Draadloze afstandbediening) was set to on (Dutch: AAN) but I could not get a connection.

      This is what I did to solve the problem for me:

      – Set the wireless remote option to OFF (Plug and play menu, last option)
      – Push enter and quit the menu and switch the TV OFF and ON
      – Start the app on the ipod/iphone and do a auto discovery. The app can’t find the TV because the option is set to OFF.
      – Set the wireless remote option to ON
      – Push enter and quit the menu and switch the TV OFF and ON
      – Start the app on the ipod/iphone and do a auto discovery. Now the app found my TV set and I could use the application

      Hope this helps for other people.
      For me the app works with a UE40C6740S and a UE32C6740S

      dvdb….well done this worked for me 🙂

      Those who cant see the wireless remote option….it is at the bottom of the ‘plug and play menu’ just scroll down it is there.

      I have a 7 series connected via Lan and wireless netgear router.

      Hi, I just tried this but for some reason the Plug and Play menu is greyed out and I can’t select it? I have a UE46B8000 with @Internet tv etc… Its running the latest firmware as well which is 3002/

      Any ideas as to why my menu is restricted?

      Steve,

      I read the app works only with C type tv’s.
      Maybe that is the reason?
      Are all options in the plug and play menu are grayed out?
      Do you see the remote control option?

      Up until today I fell into the “i have the right tv, but it still doesn’t work” category. I FINALLY figured it out. It was my wireless router. I have qwest DSL and I was using the qwest wireless router/modem combo as my access point. The problem was the qwest router. I am not sure what it was doing but once I eliminated it from the equation they connected. Simply put a linksys (or preferred non-crappy router) between your modem and the tv/iphone as the access point. Hope this helps the 25% that still can’t get it to work.

      TV is UN55C6500

      it Detects and connects to my LN46C650 fine but after around 4 seconds it disconnects saying “network “Disconnected.. Network Connection Failure..”

      Durring that 4 seconds I can control the tv fine. Its just a giant tease this would be so cool if it worked!!

      Sofar the App worked flawlessly with both my iPhone 3GS and Ipad in combination with the UE46C7700.

      However, suddenly the App stopped working while settings on the TV are unchanged. iPhone and Ipad are still displayed in the TV menu as valid devices.

      Unclear what the reason is. I updates both my iPhone and iPad to iOS 4.3 but would be surprised if that caused this problem.

      By the way, my Samsung Galaxy Tab still works correct as remote.

      Having had the C6500 for a couple of weeks now, there are a lot of features and functionality that are pretty scrappy!

    • Frank August 27, 2010, 7:36 am

      Well Flo don’t feel so bad, as new technology comes out every year. It’s bound to happen that someone buys a TV and then the following year a new feature comes out. It happens all the time for cars, should the car manufacture be made to retro fit an older model for free just to suit a consumer that wants to compete with the Jones? No, it just doesn’t happen. So this is where you look at all avenues before you buy something. As I understand it, there is a different processor that is in the 2010 TV’s than in the 2009 TV’s therefor a firmware upgrade would do no good. Just as with computers. So if you want to feel discriminated I’m sorry that you feel that way. I’m sure that they don’t intend it that way.

      Reply
    • Shirish Payasi August 29, 2010, 2:44 pm

      @Frank. I sort of agree with you. The question is whether there is or will there be a app developed by Samsung or 3rd party to control 2008/09 models. It seems that the control is via Wi Fi nd not usual inrared. Samsung galaxy s, through its “allshare app” can stream videos, control TVs volume, jump forward the video, there is very little left to incorporate in a stand alone remote control app for older Samsung models. Technically it seems feasible, what say….

      Then your router ip. Like

I can see the link on the internet (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tv-remote/id359580639?mt=8) but I can’t find it in my iTunes nor searching with my iPod Touch. Any other place where it can be downloaded? I want to try it with my 2010 UN46C7000WMXZB. Thks!

      Everyone that can’t get this to work. Always be sure your TV is powered On First. Ie you have a picture. And that you have a network connected and setup FIRST. The app is not able to turn on your TV. But can be used to turn it off. -Scott-

      I have the 55″8000 series and the app works fine, the tv is wired into a router and the iphone picks it up from there wireless. Initial search brought a confirmation screen on the tv to allow access for the iphone, but does it automatically once app is started.

      Hi Brian! I had that problem too… i had to trick iTunes Store and open an account in the US, for that matter only (I found plenty of forums explaining how to do it). Once I did that, i donwloaded the app and installed it both on my 1st and 2nd generation iPod Touch and it works perfectly with my UN46C7000WMXZB, made in Brazil. Hope it helps!

      have noticed,with increasing anger and despair, that Samsung have little interest in developing anything that makes it easy to use Mac with Samsung, whether it be internet wireless or connecting a mac to tv. this is despite them being a provider for mac!!!

      all they ever say it is too hard, yet they are working with mac…..who is the stopper here??

      I tried this today on my 6 series tv – UE40C6000 and it works perfectly. I first upgraded the firmware which is easy if your tv is connected to the internet. Mine is not connected via wireless but ethernet cable.Then ensure wireless remote option is on in network settings.

      Seems that all “C” series TVs work with the app. It’s only the “B” series that Samsung has abandoned, even though many of us only bought one a couple of months ago. What I fail to understand is why Samsung still had/has the “B” series on its web site as a “top of the range” TV, even though it had been made obsolete. Very bad practice and will inevitably lead to the demise of Samsung (if I have anything to do with it!).

      Ipod os4 with app connected to the same accesspoint.

      Both are C types.
      After starting the app it does an auto discovery but no results.
      Updated both TV’s to softwareversion 2010/11/04_003003. (Previous version 002004)

      Veera thanks for your comment.

      It works.

      The wireless remote (Dutch: Draadloze afstandbediening) was set to on (Dutch: AAN) but I could not get a connection.

      This is what I did to solve the problem for me:

      – Set the wireless remote option to OFF (Plug and play menu, last option)
      – Push enter and quit the menu and switch the TV OFF and ON
      – Start the app on the ipod/iphone and do a auto discovery. The app can’t find the TV because the option is set to OFF.
      – Set the wireless remote option to ON
      – Push enter and quit the menu and switch the TV OFF and ON
      – Start the app on the ipod/iphone and do a auto discovery. Now the app found my TV set and I could use the application

      Hope this helps for other people.
      For me the app works with a UE40C6740S and a UE32C6740S

      Up until today I fell into the “i have the right tv, but it still doesn’t work” category. I FINALLY figured it out. It was my wireless router. I have qwest DSL and I was using the qwest wireless router/modem combo as my access point. The problem was the qwest router. I am not sure what it was doing but once I eliminated it from the equation they connected. Simply put a linksys (or preferred non-crappy router) between your modem and the tv/iphone as the access point. Hope this helps the 25% that still can’t get it to work.

      Sofar the App worked flawlessly with both my iPhone 3GS and Ipad in combination with the UE46C7700.

      However, suddenly the App stopped working while settings on the TV are unchanged. iPhone and Ipad are still displayed in the TV menu as valid devices.

      Unclear what the reason is. I updates both my iPhone and iPad to iOS 4.3 but would be surprised if that caused this problem.

      By the way, my Samsung Galaxy Tab still works correct as remote.

      This app is not working on my 2010 samsung with Internet tv. Perhaps it needs to be connected with LAN 10/100 cable? I now use samsung wireless plugin. I will uninstall this app for now.

      I tried this app. Works great on UN55C7000 . However, WiFi is not required as mentioned in this article. TV could be connected to the router via Ethernet cable.

      I love this app because of soft-keyboard that the iPhone app provides for TV. Searching videos on youtube or logging in to FB account becomes very easy.

      I posted some iPhone app screenshots at:

      You need a 2010 C-series Samsung TV . My TV has Dutch menu structure so I am not sure what the English menu will look like.

      iTunes states:
      “Directions : The Wi-Fi remote control performs only when connected to the same router as SAMSUNG TV and “Wireless remote control” in the setup menu should be switched on.”

      I ringed to Samsung customer service and got a feedback from their engineer that still can’t use it in their evaluation at HK samsung centre. so this app is useless in HK for any latest 2010 internet TV model. Pls wait a new version.

      My assumption is that wireless network is off in standby mode which would prevent the remote to communicate with the TV.

      Why will Samsung not support this app on Internet based Blu-Ray players like the BD-C6500? Seems to be the same functionality!

      Having had the C6500 for a couple of weeks now, there are a lot of features and functionality that are pretty scrappy!

      This could be a great device, but falls well short. I can see why it hasn’t taken off.

      Why does Samsung not simply release a quick firmware update for the TV models with Internet@TV to also include 2009 models. I feel slightly discriminated having bought my TV just a few months earlier.

      Reply
    • Frank August 27, 2010, 7:36 am

      Well Flo don’t feel so bad, as new technology comes out every year. It’s bound to happen that someone buys a TV and then the following year a new feature comes out. It happens all the time for cars, should the car manufacture be made to retro fit an older model for free just to suit a consumer that wants to compete with the Jones? No, it just doesn’t happen. So this is where you look at all avenues before you buy something. As I understand it, there is a different processor that is in the 2010 TV’s than in the 2009 TV’s therefor a firmware upgrade would do no good. Just as with computers. So if you want to feel discriminated I’m sorry that you feel that way. I’m sure that they don’t intend it that way.

      Reply
    • Shirish Payasi August 29, 2010, 2:44 pm

      @Frank. I sort of agree with you. The question is whether there is or will there be a app developed by Samsung or 3rd party to control 2008/09 models. It seems that the control is via Wi Fi nd not usual inrared. Samsung galaxy s, through its “allshare app” can stream videos, control TVs volume, jump forward the video, there is very little left to incorporate in a stand alone remote control app for older Samsung models. Technically it seems feasible, what say….

      Eg. Ip 192.168.0.30
      Subnet mask. 255.255.255.0
      Then your router ip. Like
      192.168.0.254 for gateway.
      Then your ISP dns. Like 203.12.160.35
      This worked for me.

      Seems that all “C” series TVs work with the app. It’s only the “B” series that Samsung has abandoned, even though many of us only bought one a couple of months ago. What I fail to understand is why Samsung still had/has the “B” series on its web site as a “top of the range” TV, even though it had been made obsolete. Very bad practice and will inevitably lead to the demise of Samsung (if I have anything to do with it!).

      It works.

      The wireless remote (Dutch: Draadloze afstandbediening) was set to on (Dutch: AAN) but I could not get a connection.

      This is what I did to solve the problem for me:

      – Set the wireless remote option to OFF (Plug and play menu, last option)
      – Push enter and quit the menu and switch the TV OFF and ON
      – Start the app on the ipod/iphone and do a auto discovery. The app can’t find the TV because the option is set to OFF.
      – Set the wireless remote option to ON
      – Push enter and quit the menu and switch the TV OFF and ON
      – Start the app on the ipod/iphone and do a auto discovery. Now the app found my TV set and I could use the application

      Hope this helps for other people.
      For me the app works with a UE40C6740S and a UE32C6740S

      Up until today I fell into the “i have the right tv, but it still doesn’t work” category. I FINALLY figured it out. It was my wireless router. I have qwest DSL and I was using the qwest wireless router/modem combo as my access point. The problem was the qwest router. I am not sure what it was doing but once I eliminated it from the equation they connected. Simply put a linksys (or preferred non-crappy router) between your modem and the tv/iphone as the access point. Hope this helps the 25% that still can’t get it to work.

      However, suddenly the App stopped working while settings on the TV are unchanged. iPhone and Ipad are still displayed in the TV menu as valid devices.

      Unclear what the reason is. I updates both my iPhone and iPad to iOS 4.3 but would be surprised if that caused this problem.

      Hi Mark… thanks for this posting. Quick question. I have the newly discontinued UN55C9000 and have successfully set it up on the home WiFi network. However, after downloading the app, it never recognized the TV. I have a Verizon iPhone and have this growing suspicion that there is a firmware bias/delay there. Any thoughts?

      HAS ANYONE REALIZED THAT NO MATTER HOW FLAWLESSLY IT WORKS, YOU STILL CANNOT TURN THE TV ON. IN OTHER WORDS, YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE TV ON FIRST BEFORE YOU EVEN CONSIDER USING IT. NOW THAT’S LAME. THE TV SHOULD HAVE THE OPTION TO STAY CONNECTED TO THE NETWORK AT ALL TIME EVEN IF IT’S OF. I HAVE A SIMILAR APP FOR MY DENON RECIEVER AND I CAN ACTUALLY TURN IT ON USING THE APP. SMART THINKING DENON. LET ME KNOW GUYS IF THERE IS A WAY AROUND IT, THANKS..

        I had the same problem after I updated my iPad OS. What you need to do is remove the device from the allowed devices on the TV and then re-add your iPad just like when you first installed the Samsung iPad app.

      I love this app because of soft-keyboard that the iPhone app provides for TV. Searching videos on youtube or logging in to FB account becomes very easy.

      Why will Samsung not support this app on Internet based Blu-Ray players like the BD-C6500? Seems to be the same functionality!

      Having had the C6500 for a couple of weeks now, there are a lot of features and functionality that are pretty scrappy!

      This could be a great device, but falls well short. I can see why it hasn’t taken off.

      Reply
    • Frank August 27, 2010, 7:36 am

      Well Flo don’t feel so bad, as new technology comes out every year. It’s bound to happen that someone buys a TV and then the following year a new feature comes out. It happens all the time for cars, should the car manufacture be made to retro fit an older model for free just to suit a consumer that wants to compete with the Jones? No, it just doesn’t happen. So this is where you look at all avenues before you buy something. As I understand it, there is a different processor that is in the 2010 TV’s than in the 2009 TV’s therefor a firmware upgrade would do no good. Just as with computers. So if you want to feel discriminated I’m sorry that you feel that way. I’m sure that they don’t intend it that way.

      Reply
    • Shirish Payasi August 29, 2010, 2:44 pm

      @Frank. I sort of agree with you. The question is whether there is or will there be a app developed by Samsung or 3rd party to control 2008/09 models. It seems that the control is via Wi Fi nd not usual inrared. Samsung galaxy s, through its “allshare app” can stream videos, control TVs volume, jump forward the video, there is very little left to incorporate in a stand alone remote control app for older Samsung models. Technically it seems feasible, what say….

      Then your router ip. Like
      192.168.0.254 for gateway.
      Then your ISP dns. Like 203.12.160.35

      Seems that all “C” series TVs work with the app. It’s only the “B” series that Samsung has abandoned, even though many of us only bought one a couple of months ago. What I fail to understand is why Samsung still had/has the “B” series on its web site as a “top of the range” TV, even though it had been made obsolete. Very bad practice and will inevitably lead to the demise of Samsung (if I have anything to do with it!).

      It works.

      The wireless remote (Dutch: Draadloze afstandbediening) was set to on (Dutch: AAN) but I could not get a connection.

      This is what I did to solve the problem for me:

      – Set the wireless remote option to OFF (Plug and play menu, last option)
      – Push enter and quit the menu and switch the TV OFF and ON
      – Start the app on the ipod/iphone and do a auto discovery. The app can’t find the TV because the option is set to OFF.
      – Set the wireless remote option to ON
      – Push enter and quit the menu and switch the TV OFF and ON
      – Start the app on the ipod/iphone and do a auto discovery. Now the app found my TV set and I could use the application

      Hope this helps for other people.
      For me the app works with a UE40C6740S and a UE32C6740S

      I too have a UE40C6000 and I cannot find the wireless remote option on the menu. The manual states that this option should be there, but it is not visible.

      mas could you please let me know on your tv (UE40C6000) where this menu option is, I’m wondering if a firmware upgrade has removed it?

      Works nicely on 40C6530 using wired connection over homeplug network to adsl. Had to use manual network settings and it worked. Initial connection has to be authorised by tv remote and it then auto connects. Great App

      Up until today I fell into the “i have the right tv, but it still doesn’t work” category. I FINALLY figured it out. It was my wireless router. I have qwest DSL and I was using the qwest wireless router/modem combo as my access point. The problem was the qwest router. I am not sure what it was doing but once I eliminated it from the equation they connected. Simply put a linksys (or preferred non-crappy router) between your modem and the tv/iphone as the access point. Hope this helps the 25% that still can’t get it to work.

      TV is UN55C6500

      I have a C700 model. It works fine with some all other wireless networks then mine. I have tested it with friends wireless network and the iphone application controlled the TV but when i choose my wireless network it can not pass the searching for TV part on iphone. Is there a specific setting on router that may interrupt the communication between iphone and the TV?

      This looks like a great app but will not work for me.

      it Detects and connects to my LN46C650 fine but after around 4 seconds it disconnects saying “network “Disconnected.. Network Connection Failure..”

      Durring that 4 seconds I can control the tv fine. Its just a giant tease this would be so cool if it worked!!

      if anyone knows a fix to this please send me an email I would be REALLY greatful.

      Sofar the App worked flawlessly with both my iPhone 3GS and Ipad in combination with the UE46C7700.

      However, suddenly the App stopped working while settings on the TV are unchanged. iPhone and Ipad are still displayed in the TV menu as valid devices.

      Unclear what the reason is. I updates both my iPhone and iPad to iOS 4.3 but would be surprised if that caused this problem.

      By the way, my Samsung Galaxy Tab still works correct as remote.

      seems it depends on region, if visit the UK website

      I can see the UK model UE40C7000 has the “Wireless Remote Control” under the feature list
      but Hong Kong model UA40C7000 doesn’t show this option in it’s spec.

      http://www.samsung.com/hk_en/consumer/tv-av/televisions/led-tv/UA40C7000WMXZK/index.idx?pagetype=prd_detail&tab=specification.

      Yes, mine is UA40C7000…………. and it doesn’t allow me to upgrade to UK’s firmware.
      it’s a kind of discrimination against Asian by a korea brand?

      also the india model doesn’t show this option in it’s page.

      My iOS is the 4.31 and an Iphone4.

      Hi Mark… thanks for this posting. Quick question. I have the newly discontinued UN55C9000 and have successfully set it up on the home WiFi network. However, after downloading the app, it never recognized the TV. I have a Verizon iPhone and have this growing suspicion that there is a firmware bias/delay there. Any thoughts?

      HAS ANYONE REALIZED THAT NO MATTER HOW FLAWLESSLY IT WORKS, YOU STILL CANNOT TURN THE TV ON. IN OTHER WORDS, YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE TV ON FIRST BEFORE YOU EVEN CONSIDER USING IT. NOW THAT’S LAME. THE TV SHOULD HAVE THE OPTION TO STAY CONNECTED TO THE NETWORK AT ALL TIME EVEN IF IT’S OF. I HAVE A SIMILAR APP FOR MY DENON RECIEVER AND I CAN ACTUALLY TURN IT ON USING THE APP. SMART THINKING DENON. LET ME KNOW GUYS IF THERE IS A WAY AROUND IT, THANKS..

        Just solved this myself.

        I had the same problem after I updated my iPad OS. What you need to do is remove the device from the allowed devices on the TV and then re-add your iPad just like when you first installed the Samsung iPad app.

        Hope this helps…

      This DOES NOT WORK.

      App opens on a white screen and after the circle thing stops counting down it just hangs?!!

      I have a shed load of expensive Samsung HD gear that I bought 3 months ago and frankly I’m pretty hacked off that Samsung have released this before it is fully tested.

      I tried this app. Works great on UN55C7000 . However, WiFi is not required as mentioned in this article. TV could be connected to the router via Ethernet cable.

      I love this app because of soft-keyboard that the iPhone app provides for TV. Searching videos on youtube or logging in to FB account becomes very easy.

      I posted some iPhone app screenshots at:
