    It remains to be seen if the UN55C6900 will be supported.

    There's certainly no reason to expect it to, but it may be possible. :confused:

    If it later becomes supported, I'd certainly be sure I had a GREAT network signal as well, because a weak connection would probably be an issue, I would think. :confused:

    Well I just purchased a wireless dongle for my tv on Ebay for only $25. Sure beats the $79 Best Buy wants. Hopefully it comes from the end of the week and I'll report back and let everyone know if I'm able to update my un55c6900 to firmware 1024. Thanks for all the replies guys.

    Hopefully that will work out for you in the future.

    I started to suggest (prior to you posting that you purchased the wireless dongle) that you ask fellow owners on AVSForum. They have a thread dedicated to the UN55C6900...

    I have a UN5500D6400. It was on version 1010. When I forced the update, it said I had the current version. THere was another option on the screen for "Alternate Software" which is version 1023. I loaded that with no problem. I am hard-wired to the internet and don't have a HR34.

    Why would they promote something like this that doesn't even exists yet. They need the c30 to launch first, and then get the Samsung tvs working. I have a feeling the software everyone is downloading is a first attempt to spread, And it is not the mainstream "nr" if you will yet. Till those two things happen, not a good idea to advertise, or else everyone will be upset they can't get it.

    Heck, they aren't even advertised the hr34 yet. You won't see anything other than an option to choose it on the web site till sometime next year, probably after anyone can order them.

    I wonder if this will be equivilant to MRV beta testing, and NR release. I haven't seen anyone comment on a cost associated with connecting their Sammy Tv's (for RVU), but it was said that there would likely be a fee for clients. Will we see the fee when RVU is "official?"

    I don't think Samsung makes the C30. Why would they care about the C30?

    Samsung released a press release stating they were releasing the first RVU TVs... yet those particular models don't even list RVU on their specs on their website. I think that's crazy...

    I wouldn't bother with advertising the HR34. Let DirecTV do that...

    I have the un55d8000 and can not see the firmware version. Where do you go to find it?

    I thought you meant DirecTV advertising. I see now you mean Samsung. ;)

    Well, I'll bet they. Want to wait to do much till they have it working as well. What if something happened and they never get it to work right their current models? They'd have to swap them all out. Nah, I think they are waiting till the hr34 is available and they are working properly with it. I am guessing you will see it heavily advertised at ces for the next model year.

    Yep! I can understand why DirecTV is not promoting it at this time...

    Oh, don't get me wrong, I suspect they will in time. I'm just surprised that a company who releases a press release stating that they are the first to market with a new technology doesn't even bother to list the technology on their own website.

    It will come in time I'm sure...

    While I agree somewhat with this I also think that they wouldn't even roll out the option to use it less it was working as they intend to. Thats like having the nation beta test a new feature for them which is highly unlikely.

    Rad, I have the 59D8000. I was curious if you ever got yours working with an HR34 and RVU.

    Nope, the firmware doesn't see any RVU servers. Don't know if Samsung will ever support it since they didn't mention the D8000 series plasma I their initial press release.

    Menu>Support>Software Upgrade. That will tell you what software version you are on. Need internet connection (also says via usb) to upgrade.

    Good evening. Would someone have any pointers they would offer me? I have an HR34, and, a brand new (tonight) UN46D6050TF.

    Fired it up, and, it launched with firmware 1022. It would not update over the wire. I downloaded 1023 from the web to USB and updated to that. It was successful. Checked the SmartHub and Samsung apps, and, they are up to date now.

    Is there a source any can find for firmware 1024 that someone could point me to? Menu/System/Firmware update shows no new firmware.

    I've been informed that the official date for support is the 16th and right now it's just in the stream for those who are in the know for testing.

    Started out with 1003 version of the firmware. An internet check for new versions turns up nothing, but there is a version 1013 on the Samsung site for "This firmware makes TV available for 3D explore and Compassion apps.
    This firmware improves picture quality on SD pictures."

    Before trying a USB update saw that there was an RVU server in the source list that wasn't there before. Looked promising but wouldn't play videos and none displayed.

    Before trying the 1013 update via USB played around with the apps where lo and behold two of them updated! Now I have an HSN app - oh goody.

    Following loading 1013 from USB, now the TV will go out and get 1014 off of the net. Weird.
    Still no real RVU software available though, and no online firmware past 1014.

    There is a menu line for alternative software on the TV software upgrade menu, but can't select it. Damn.
