The TVs do not support DECA. They can be adapted to DECA but that is not the same thing.
If you've got an Ethernet cable right there, my switch recommendation is worth trying as it will keep your TV off of the DECA cloud for all of its many functions other than RVU.
Can you point to any TV that has a coax connection for any flavor of moca?
I have three connections to the HR34:
1. Ethernet port is connected to the ethernet port on the TV
2. HDMI is connected to HDMI-1 on the TV
3. Component is connected to a Vulkano Flow
If I have RVU selected on the TV (ethernet port), I can watch a Directv live or recorded program in the living room while someone else can watch a different program on the Mac in my den and/or an iPad/iPhone or on a PC in another town via the Vulkano app.
If nobody is watching anything via the Vulkano, then I can watch TV via HDMI, but then I need to use the Directv Remote. In RVU mode, the Samsung remote does a good job of controlling the HR34.
I cannot because such a TV isn't on the market yet. That is my point. Outboard media converters are not the way to curry favor from installers nor the public at large.
Samsung went out on a limb and included RVU client functionality yet there still doesn't appear to be an approved RVU server.
I don't think we will ever see a mode coax connector n tvs, and frankly, don't think we should. To many people would not understand it and think its for an antenna. Ethernet port with a small adapter in some case is a fine solution. Was kind of my point. No one really cares about a small box behind their tv they don't have to see.
How about doing it with no adapter? If they include both Ethernet and Wi-fi but not MoCA, that is a strong statement.
We've seen solutions that used HomePlug and MoCA and all the while Ethernet remains the one constant.
I just bought a UN46ES6150F .... are you saying that at some (as yet undefined) point in the future Samsung plans to update the firmware to allow it to perform the RVU functionality?
Just a note that the latest software fix this I now can access ota from the client
great job DTV
So it looks like some folks are seeing a C31 software upgrade to level 0x070E.
0x70e and a hang... RBR on C31 required.
Sorry for bad phone picture.
Just to update this post. The person I was in contact with at DIRECTV confirms that the EH5300 series will NOT be supporting RVU, even though it's a Smart TV. I also got a response from Samsung that also now says
Guess I'm taking my UN40EH5300 back.
Can someone confirm from their experience if I buy a UN55ES7100 it will work as an RVU client with my HR34?
Don't have that model but it is listed at http://www.rvualliance.org/products as being certified back in September. I have a ES6100 series and it does work with RVU to the HR34 if that helps.
I am having issues with my C31's and 30 sec slip. Most of the time it behaves normally. I hit 5 times in a row to skip a block of commercials. However, occasionally it's acting like the skip ahead (sorry for not recalling the proper terminology), where it jumps to the 15 tick. And since I hit it 5 times, it usually is jumping to the end of the show.
I currently have 0x70e on my C31's.
I'm still seeing these hangs about once a week.
Last one hung the HR34 as well.
I just setup my first Samsung RVU TV last night. All is working great, no delays in fast forward or anything else but I do have one issue I would like to see if someone has addressed. Is there a discrete IR code to switch the Samsung TV to RVU? The TV is controlled by an automation system, and the system uses discrete IR codes to change input based on source. I have codes for HDMI 1-4, component, composite, but I have found nothing for RVU. Of course the problem is there isn't a set number of "source" presses to get to RVU since the TV may be on any number of inputs.
Thanks for your help!
These are all problems with the RVU client on a Samsung UN40ES6100 running 01025 software.
· Paired with an HR34-700, running 0x0677 software, and selected a recording from a HR24-500 to play on the UN40ES6100. Program started to play but it looked like the frame rate was off or frames were being dropped, it had a bad stutter to the video. I exited the playback and when I went back to live TV, CNBC, the problem continued there, very noticeable in the stock ticker. Sent report 20130128-2DBC
· Paired with HR34-700, running 0x0678 software, and is connected via DECA-BB to the network. Sent report 20130130-35DC which is for the following items:
o Turned on TV and got the “This location is not authorized” message, it eventually went away though. Hadn’t seen this for awhile, but this was the first time I had the client on since a reboot of the H34.
o Started playback of a recording from the HR34 and shortly after it started there was a pause for a couple seconds.
o 30SKIP (did the keyword search for it, don’t like slip) is very slow to complete compared to a C31/C41
o After exiting the recording playback the live TV channel now has audio drops. Sent the report at this point.
o I made a short video of these occurances and put it on YouTube, viewable only via the link, http://youtu.be/WbpYeojvBSw , so you can see what I’m seeing if that helps.
· Was watching live TV and I wanted to go back to the beginning of the program. First hit << to get to REW 1 and then the skip back button to get to the first tick mark, once there hit it again to get to the beginning of the program. At that point video/audio stopped, tried hitting play but still paused/frozen, generated report 20130130-2B01, this was paired to HR34-700 running 0x0678 software.
FYI, happened to try a software upgrade on my UN40ES6100 and it found level 001027 and installed it. Only played with the RVU a bit but a couple issues I've noted in the past like frame rate issues or pausing video/dropped audio, haven't happened so far.
I tried the RVU in my ES6100 and switched back to using the C31.
First of all the audio/video was going out of sync often.
Secondly I did this on my own, so I didn't get the RC70 remote.
I think for the next wall mounted TV in my home office that I'm going to buy a RVU TV and go that route. But I'll set up an install so I can get the RC70x remote. Any way other than DirecTV to get that remote? Or can I just call them and say I want to swap one of the C31s for RVU and then get a RC70 remote that way?
The lack of the discrete code for the source is also a problem.
