Aviewer, I appreciate your feedback. The concept of linking the laptop to the TV screen skirts the issue of my clunky built-in browser. Seems like it would make browsing and selective streaming rather easy. I will try it with whatever hardware it takes. Thanks once again. I will also mention here, Consumer Reports (March) has a very comprehensive write-up on the subject o...

First and foremost I want to thank everyone for their posted feedback. I appreciate your time and effort. It would be nice if there was an essential app or a website/clearing house that was a go-to search guide, but alas that seems not the case. I guess we’re all in the same soup – meandering and finding things that serve in a piecemeal fashion. And yes, the Samsung Smart...

Lots of buzz about streaming these days, so thought I would check in to understand what my latest how-to capability looks like. I am a U-verse subscriber and own a 2012 Smart TV from Samsung. That TV is linked directly to the Internet via Ethernet cable (8 Mbps download). It has a number of apps and a browser; I believe I can download additional apps as needed. I’m a novi...

Being a newbie, I am still in the throes of asking newbie questions. Save for the friendly LAST button on my remote, pinpoint channel switching seems rather labor intensive. If I have numerous designated favorites, going to menu/favorites and scrolling through them to find a selection takes time. With a cheat sheet, distinctly punching the four (4) HD digits without error...

Your suggestion did the trick; switching from coax to HDMI. Best connectivity for me had been undefined because my previous TV was not equipped with the newer input type. Thank you, TheKingfish

I appreciate your feedback/assistance. Answers: 1) Yes, the 2/4 banded reduced-viewing area comes with the HD channels (>1000). The fully-utilized viewing area comes with the SD channels (<1000). I should add; the SD view cuts off portions on the left and right. In other words, the HD replicates a letter-box movie (full content) and the SD is similar to a pan-and-scan (fu...

I am new to both HDTV product and U-verse, and need a short primer on what is considered the ‘normal viewing’ area with this combination. Originally I watched full-screen; the TV viewing area utilized in full. I then ordered up the HD signal and the screen went to the dark band above/below, with some channels showing a full four bands; one on each side. The former is a 20...

My question actually referenced the ‘paper’ guide having no listing of HD local channels. In auto-reflex that made me think they were not available; thus my question. I now fully understand based on your response. Thank you, TheKingfish

I just signed up for HD service and am able to access that feed as expected. However, my channel guide does not reference an HD number for local channels. Do I have those channels in HD? Thank you, TheKingfish
