Help with LN40D550 SQ06

Postby Rezvonflux » Fri Jan 06, 2012 5:50 pm

Hello all,

Ok, big Newbie here needing some clarification.
I just got not long ago the LN-40D550 (SQ06) and very happy with it so far. My questions are:

1. Why can I not find any firmware for the D550? Does it have another alias, or is it still too new? All I seem to find is for the D5500 series.

2. I had an annoying problem, but seem to have figured it out myself.
I don’t' know why, but if my Backlight is at anything less than 6 it plays havoc on my cable box.
It would seem that as I tired changing channels... it would lag, then suddenly cycle thru all my channels. The only way to stop this seemed to be to shut the TV off and then the cable box.

Only noticed last night while I was watching TV and everything was fine. My GF came in and turned the light off, the TV dimmed and the problem started.....

...talk about odd.
Dimming affects IRs?

Can someone tell me how i go about figuring out if i'm compatible or not?
So, the LNxxD550, LExxD550, EUxxD550 are basically all the same unit?

All i seem to find are D5xxx's or i'll find the LNxx-A-B-C550...
...but no D550?

So, i have the LN-40D550 (SQ06)
So where does that fall under?
Can i do anything with it? (eg. PVR?)

D550 model is released for Europe also (EUxxD550), so you`re not alone :)
This is budget TV, doesn`t have functions like PVR/SmartHub...

Oh wow, serious? It's a Eurpoean model, but i purchased it from Bestbuy Canada... (and lucky i actually got it too)

Oh well, no PVR for me i guess. But i must admit, it does have some very nice features to it... for a budget model

Ok, So i can't enable the PVR..., but is there anything else i can do to tweak it a little more?

I noticed a bunch of app in here, anything i can do with them?


EDIT:

By the way, is this the right model i should be looking up?
or is it a child to some other parent model?

I am also looking to get more out of my LN40D550. I was hoping it was possible to flash with Google TV firmware when I came across this forum. I am unable to find my model in the compatibility charts but upon reading this thread I realize it could have an alternate model number. Is this TV compatible with any 3rd party firmware? A firmware where I am able to use apps like a web browser, Netflix and YouTube. A firmware with a web management or ability to Telnet/SSH and an iPhone/iPad network remote app. Is there a compatible version of SammyGo?

Guys, this tv isnt jailbraked yet, means we don't have root access to it and no modifications.

What is firmware name and version on board? Only T-MSV4* have unrestricted shell over Exlink cable, other firmwares dunno.

I have a similar LE40D550, PVR can be enabled with ruSamsungTVCommunicator, but it doesn't actually do anything.

After turning PVR on then pressing record on the remote does nothing with a USB hdd attached. :-(

Hi,

I've also got a LE40d550 tv.

Firmware running is :
T-MST4DEUC-1014.2
T-MST4DEUS-1001

Factory Data version 142
EERC Version 556

There is an update for this on the samsung website but I'm unable to post the link here.

Any help on jailbreak will be helpful, or any help I can provide ?
