    Have you tried the latest software on the TV? Mine updated to 001027 last week and it helped with a number or problems.

    Has anyone hooked up PN51E550D1F to rvu client or are these Samsung plasmas not compatible. I get the location not authorized. Tried to get dcs to add to my account but they are confused on how to add rvu client to my account. Before I call back and waist another hour with dcs thought I would check to see if this Samsung model is compatible.

    Thx Patrick

    I'm shopping for a new Samsung HDTV Smart TV between 42" and 46" for my summer residence I'll be opening soon. I'm searching for one that'll work on a DirecTV receiver. Is there one where you won't need a receiver but can connect to a DirecTV system? Please list model numbers so I can write them down and shop for one. Thanks in advanced.

    This page suggests that it is RVU capable out of the box:

    http://support-us.samsung.com/cyber...0&modelname=&modelcode=&session_id=&from_osc=

    Why they have two different pages that talk about RVU capable TVs is a head scratcher.

    It boggles the mind that the RVU Alliance still hasn't certified a server.

    Noticed that release 001029 is now available for my UN40ES6100. Just started playing with it but trick play seems a bit better with this release but also still see occasional stuttering and audio drops.

    I'm trying to activate a second Samsung RVU TV. My first one when I selected RVU from the list it came up with a screen asking for a PIN (when the add a client screen was on the Genie). On this second TV (which is on the new firmware 001029) and it just says This location is not authorized in DirecTV print. I haven't been able to get it to display the PIN screen. I even called DirecTV and had them activate a second RVU client, made sure it was on the account and still doesn't connect. If I leave it on the screen it brings up the DirecTV screen saver, just never a PIN entry screen. Any ideas?
    I saw one other person have the issue on the forum of the last post on the Q1 2012 Samsung TV topic, but no resolution. Thanks!

    I've got the same exact model and I see that pop up every now and then it goes away in a few seconds. The ES6100's are a supported model so I'd get tech support involved to have them escalate.

    It's not because you don't have a RVU client available on the account but the Genie thinks that the model number isn't a supported set.

    I have also seen that my other TV (UN55ES7100) on occasion but like you said it goes away after just a few seconds if that. That TV just shows it the whole time.

    Hi mdpeterman,

    I've been looking for discreet IR codes for a long time, and the Samsung tech support are clueless. You'd mentioned that you set up discreet codes for your TV, so I figured that I'd ask if you'd be willing to share them or where you found them. I would be so grateful! :)

    Thank you.

    What remote do you have? The codes are available on most of the web forums, for example at remotecentral.com

    I have the Samsung AA59-00652A Remote Control

    I'm trying to find the codes that this remote sends as well as discrete codes.

    Has anyone seen a 32" RVU capable TV? I have been looking but have been unable to find one that is RVU capable.

    My Samsung UN40ES6100 found software update 001031 available so I downloaded it. Testing so far doesn't show any DVR function performance improvements, using the SKIP FWD/REW is horrible using either SKIP or SLIP. Hit FF and it take a couple seconds before doing anything and this is paired with a HR44. Plus they still haven't added a Screen Fit picture size option so the set has overscan when using it as a RVU client. Looks like I'm still going to be keeping my DIRECTV client hardware around.
