Yes, that's normal behaviour. If you synchonize with a development server all previously installed user apps (only the USER apps) are deleted.

Make a backup of your user apps via ftp before synchonising with another devel server. After that just copy the old apps back to /mtd_down/widgets/user/
After a restart of the TV all apps should be visible in SmartHub again.

You have to use SamyGO for ftp access in order to backup and restore your widgets.

If you can't (or don't want to) use SamyGO, get the download URL for each widget you want to install.
Then setup an own develop server (as described in the official Samsung SDK documentation) with a list of all the widgets.
If you synchronise your TV with your own server all the widgets are installed simultaneously.

Basicly a develop server is nothing more than normal webserver (e.g. Apache) with a widgetlist.xml in the root directory. The TV fetches this list and installs all widgets from that list.
If you install the Samsung SDK ( there's a web server included, just edit the widgetlist.xml - or get a binary package of Apache web server.

sry 4 my newbie quiestion, I'm facing a problem as follows:
I want to control the widgets that I'd like to sync to my TV,
from my localhost apache, and I'm intended to manually download
only those widgets (from the several public servers) that I prefer to use,
and to dl/sync everytime (hoping for version change) and keep deleting the unwanted ones
(e.g russian tv streams viewer widgets in my case).

And by collecting and checking new D series (and under development) widgets,
it would be nice to give them a first try before syncing to TV. So I downloaded the Samsung
smart TV SDK (2.5 then 3.0), to use its emulator. Unfortunately I cannot find /not even using google/,
how to IMPORT existing widget zip files /or extracting its content/ for this SDK to be visible, and checkable.
Just extract the ZIP file for the widget to the SDK Apps dir (C:\Program Files\Samsung TV SDK(2.5.1)\Apps) and restart SDK. then go to File -> Open Project and select the one you extracted. Note that the binary apps will not work, such as skype, etc. cuz they have to run on the TV for the correct environment and cpu
