DirecTV RVU Support Samsung TV

I'm considering getting a Samsung UN40EH6000 TV from Best Buy. I am wondering if this TV would support DirecTV RVU technology for connecting the HR-34 to the TV via coax-cable. I haven't been able to find any definitive answers on the web and was wondering if somebody could confirm that this TV does in fact support RVU.

 

Thanks,

-Ryan

Thanks for the quick response. What about the Samsung UN40D6000? I believe this one is support but I just want to make sure.

Currently, only the 6000, 6400, and 6420 of the 2011 Samsung TV models support RVU.

I beleive that the TV that the OP post in the 2nd post should work fine. They have differnet sizes for the D6000 series and after a bit of google searches that one should work fine. If the OP wants to double make sure and post back there results I would recommend contact Samsung tech support to clarify those finding.

FYI, barnett...it will take a little more than just a coaz connections. You'll need a BB DECA for the samsung TV

I believe Heath meant to say a DECA module.  The DECA BB is for connecting the Whole Home system to the router.

Actually it could be either.  But DirecTV is using the DECA BB as an RVU client connection.  Also an straight up ethernet cable, if available can be used as well

The only connection to the TV would be the Ethernet jumper from the DECA BB?  Or, an Ethernet feed from the HR34?

Thanks for all of the responses. Another question I have related to RVU, is does anybody have first hand experience with using this? I have read in the blog posted above that the remote controller can be a bit unresponsive, has this proven to be true? If this is the case then would it just be better to go w/ a set top?

 

Finally, with RVU, does this allow for pausing of Live TV which is what I would be missing out if I when w/ a HD receiver connected to the HR-34?

because DirecTV does not run ethernet cable only coax, a DECA BB  connects the RVU TV to the customer router, thus an ethernet cable from the customer router to an RVU TV will do the same job as having a DECA BB.  note that this relies that the HR34 MUST be connected to the internet (router) from the RVU client TV to work.

Does this mean that RVU with a supported TV doesn't work over coax and SWiM?

Yes.  you have to understand that what DirecTV uses (DECA) which is a "cousin" of MoCA is networking with coax instead of ethernet.  all of DECA devices (assuming your DirecTV system is connected to the internet) winds up to the same place, your router, using coax instead of ethernet cable.  the TV RVU "input" is through its networking interface.  But DirecTV does not run ethernet cables so they use a DECA BB to "convert" the coax ethernet signals to the known ethernet or RJ45 connector that your TV uses.

Hey barnett03,

 

The UN40EH6000 is a 2012 model as identified by CNET here http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-33199_7-57366966-221/samsung-tvs-2012-micro-dimming-leds-blacker-plasmas-gesture-control/?part=rss&subj=crave&tag=embed at CES this year Samsung announced that ALL 2012's will come with the "boxless" RVU technology built in http://ces.cnet.com/8301-33363_1-57356230/take-that-dish-samsung-directv-partner-on-boxless-dvr-streaming/?part=rss&subj=crave&tag=readMore

 

With that being said I purchased a UN55ES6150 (2012) from Costco last week for $1649 and do not see any reference to RVU or the ability to set up a RVU client. I called Samsung and as you might expect the rep really knew nothing about RVU as is the case with DTV, I asked if my new set was compatible with RVU and she NO. She did mention about a set in the 7000 series as being compatible but I didn't take this too seriously.

 

I believe the CNET articles above and I think we will see more info in the next few month's, I am holding off for now on getting DTV to roll a truck to my place to get the HR34 set up..

I beleive the reason behind not seeing anything for rvu is that you must first have your rvu compatible TV connected to your internet and download the latest firmware. After the latest firmware is installed then if it is truly compatible you will see it under your settings I believe.

I have a Direct TV HR34 and Samsung 40D6000 hooked up as a RVU.....works like a charm (other than remote response slow, a well known issue).

I have read numerous posts on various forums indicating ALL 2012 Smart TVs will have RVU capability....that was my understanding too from CES.

Now I'm not so sure! Just bought a UN46ES6100, hooked up, made sure has latest firmware, go to sources menu, no RVU! Strange, can't figure it out.

Get on Samsung chat, agent seems to research thoroughly and comes back and says their internal database indicates only these 2012 models have RVU capability; EH5300, ES6500, ES6600! My new 2012 Smart TV is NOT RVU capable! Of course he won't send me any document to validate it.

Anyone else heard/experienced this issue...I think the agent may be correct? And of course the Samsung website is weeks/months behind the eight ball as always, so no use at all!

Just received this from Samsung:

 

We understand you would like to know the TV model numbers compatible with RVU feature.

The compatible models with RVU feature are:

UN**EH5300, UN**ES6500, UN55ES6600 with any firmware version installed on them.

UN**D6000, UN**D6400, UN**D6420 with 1025.0 firmware version installed on them.

While Samsung may say these are compatible, I want to know what DirecTV says. I think they are the ultimate source.

 

I need to buy (2) TVs, one being an RVU set, and I don't think I can commit the EH or ES series without knowing they work.

 

Can anyone prove or disprove they work with RVU on DirecTV?

I ordered the 55ES6500 today. Should have it in within a week. However, I have ethernet ran throughout my entire house, so I'm going to try and hook this up without the additional BB DECA box. All of my DirecTV boxes run through the same router/network.

 

I will report as well if this works.

I currently have a 40D6000 functioning as a RVU.  It is hooked up to the LAN using a cat5, no DECA on the TV, and no other cables...very clean, easy solution.  It works flawlessly....only complaint is the remote response is very slow using the Samsung TV remote.  I had Direct TV send me a RVU remote (RC-70X).  Not sure if that will resolve this issue or not.  Will post when I receive and test it.

I was wondering how well over CAT5 not using DECA because I really don't want to have to have a DECA box. The remote responsiveness is my only concern since I'm going to be using quite a bit. Hopefully with the DirecTV remote it will help fix some of the problems. Please let me know when you get one of those remotes.

So, I hook up my new ES6500, update firmware, check sources, guess what....no RVU source!!

 

Call Samsung support, get escalated to RVU Engineering.  After a short wait to research, he comes back with a new "definitive" statement from Samsung on 2012 Smart TV/RVU capability:

 

"None of the 2012 Smart TVs have RVU capable firmware at this time.  We are working on it and will roll it out to all 2012 Smart TVs at some point in the future, but there is no information on when that might be"

 

How hard can this be!  What a cluster in terms of communications of product features.

 

So now it's a wait and see on new firmware!

Mine did not work either. Called DirecTV and the firmware on mine is 1009, the highest it can go. DirecTV mention that it needs to be higher to support RVU.

I just got done chatting with a Samsung agent about the 2012 models available and here is what he said:

 

 

Danny: I see that the following 2012 models have RVU feature for direct TV:

Danny: UN**EH5300, UN**ES6500 and UN55ES6600.

 

Danny: Yes, soon a firmware update will be released.

Danny: After the firmware update all the TVs can have RVU feature for direct TV.

 

Can anyone with a listed model confirm that the RVU is enabled and working?

 

Thanks!!

The latest update I believe is 1015, issued Jun 15.  This does NOT have RVU support.  The whole thing is just pathetic.  I lost patience and picked up 2 of their 2011 models that work flawlessly as RVU devices.  Pretty bad when you have to backtrack to an older TV to get the functionality promised on all 2012 Smart TVs.  Samsung has no credibility on this stuff.  They created all this buzz at CES and totally failed to deliver on promised functionality.
