Anyone tried RVU on a Samsung 'world' TV?

    Has anyone tried using a Samsung world (or multi-system) TV as an RVU client?

    I'm considering a UA40F7500, which is listed as a 'smart' TV, but I'm new to the Samsung ecosystem, so not sure what, if any, the implications of that are.

    Yes, I know I can get a C41, but why would I want the extra hardware?

    Because it works and is less hassle. Same price and D* will probably give you the client.

    If not, you probably spent more than $1000 for the Samsung. . . what's another $50?

    If you don't get the client, order a RC71 remote. You'll need it.

    (Mute / Select after two blinks, enter 54000)

    If it does not say it has RVU capability (and is not on the list at the rvualliance web site) then it won't work as an RVU client.
