I am also getting the same error, ERROR MODEL BIND, but only at night. According to the instructions I found on the Web for this error it is needed to update the firmware and Smart Hub Country Code. I will see tonight if these two updates fixed the problem. Good luck.

How can I control the volume on a sound bar from the TV Remote Control?

How can I control the volume on a Samsung HW-E450 Sound Bar using a Samsung LED TV UN46ES8000 Remote Control? Is is possible to control the volume with either the TV Smart Touch Remote Control or the TV Standard Remote Control?

I'd like to use the TV remote control to control the volume on the sound bar, as the TV remote has more functions and I'd like to use only 1 remote for the TV and Sound Bar volume.

Question

TV "hanging" and sometimes strange colours.

Since three days I now have some strange hiccups with my Samsung UE46ES8090.
Without warning the picture "hangs" and after some seconds the TV automatically switches off and instantly on again, which can be recognized by the "klack". The small lamp at the camera blinks two or three times. Sometimes everything works just fine afterweards.
But I already had several occasions, where the on/off cycle happened for 20 times. Then I also had some strange colour bars and squares.
After several cycles I am able to turn off the TV using the remote control. After that and waiting for some seconds, the TV works fine again.

I updated the TV firmware two days ago directly over the network connection. This didn't help. The crashes still occur.

Any ideas on this?

Best regards,
Daniel

Question

Flash Support for Smart Hub Browser

I had previously asked a question about adding a Watch ESPN app to the smart hub. I have contacted ESPN and requested one be developed.

An alternative is for you to upgrade the Flash capability of the Smart Hub browser. According to ESPN, Flash Player 10.3 or higher is all that's required to access their content.

Could this capability be added to your browser?

If you have a 3D Blu-ray disc, it's not going to play in a non-3D player, whether or not you have a 3D TV, so you would need to purchase a 3D Blu-ray player.

Thank you for contacting Samsung!

We're sorry to hear you're encountering this issue with your Samsung device. Is the error message specific to one application or all of them? Have you registered your Smart Hub?

Also, have you been prompted to update the firmware for the TV? There was a firmware update released for this model on April 15th. If you haven't been prompted, please reference the following link to download the firmware to your computer. There is also a downloadable PDF guide on how to install the firmware once downloaded. You'll need a blank USB flash drive.

http://www.samsung.com/us/support/supportOwnersProduct.do?prd_ia_cd=N0000058&prd_mdl_cd=UN46ES8000FXZA&prd_mdl_name=UN46ES8000F#

You can also follow the steps in the guide below to help you check for firmware updates via your TV menu.

Question

How do I improve web browser response? Best way to consolidate controllers?

Generally the TV is great! Picture and sound quality are about as about as good as I could ask. I've integrated it into our "home computer network" and can wireless access documents, photos, etc. on our laptop and desktop computers. I activated the voice control feature and that works fairly well. We've downloaded Skype and we used the built in TV camera to communicate with someone else via their laptop & laptop camera.

A couple of things that are "less than perfect" are:

(1) I had hoped to use the TV web browser to stream video wirelessly from PBS online, and C-span book TV online. However, the TV's web browser seems too slow for that; at least that's my initial experience. In contrast, my laptop handles these streaming video functions seemingly effortlessly, via our wireless router. I only have a 2 Mbps internet connection; so possibly the TV web browser might work better with a faster connection. But it does seem a bit strange that the laptop performs the streaming video function wirelessly so much better than the TV. Some You-Tube videos seem to work well, some don't. I haven't tried accessing a movie via one of the movie download services yet (Netflix, Vudu, etc.), but I intend to try that soon. Anything we can do to improve the web browser response?

(2) We now have several controllers we have to use to access various features. My old cable box controller does just about everything it did before, except it can now not control the volume. I have to do that with the TV controller, or via voice commands. And the Samsung TV controllers cannot change channels; we have to do that with our old cable box controller. I've tried the Blu-ray player. It's seems very satisfactory. But, many of the functions on the Blu-ray controller don't work; so, I have to control that with the TV controllers. This is all a bit awkward. One of the TV installers suggested acquiring a universal controller, such as a Logitech controller. I might look into that. I haven't decided yet if we "need" a controller that has a QWERTY keypad built into the controller (like one my son received with his 2011 Samsung TV.) Can you recommend a universal controller approach?

I read before I purchased the TV about an "Evolution Kit" that will be available for the model we now have in 2013. I also notice that on the back of the TV, there appear to be connections for such a kit. Any further info. about the Evolution Kit?

I have the same issues (4.18 mbps download) and I have a fast internet connection (25 mbps download, Comcast) with a new router and new modem. My laptop sitting right next to the TV gets 25 mbps. Also I would like the ability to use Google Chrome if not Internet Explorer. Otherwise the web browser is useless. Without the Web, the SmartTV is also useless except for wireless upgrades. Other then that the TV, itself, is spectacular.

I know that this is a new technology with TVs and I am on the bleeding edge, so I am hoping that there will be extensive improvements along the way.
