Samsung Tizen (2017) crashing out live TV

Post by jefft » Sat Jul 14, 2018 7:55 pm

Has anyone got a VBox working with a 2017 or later Samsung Smart TV (Tizen, presumably)?

Mine (UE40MU6120) finds the VBox and I can go into the LiveTV folder, where I see a load of plain white box icons with the text at the bottom saying which channel each is as I move across them. However, after a couple of seconds and well before I can even think about selecting one of them, the TV appears to crash out of the UPnP application and I'm back at the home screen menu.

Any ideas very welcome!

Thanks!

Hi
The Vbox should work perfectly as UPNP device
what is your device SW version ?

VBox is up to date, XTI_VJ.2.59. TV is also latest, updated last week when I set it up.

Are you able to use the Vbox device smoothly as UPNP on another service such as VLC ?
I suggest you to open support ticket at support@vboxcomm.com

Thanks, I've emailed support.

Samsung JS8500 TV - a year or two older - is fine in the native IP TV source, so the problem has something to do with the newer TV's OS.
