watchdog is on from start of using samygo,
i found this:
Samsung devices have something they call "Watchdog". It's a feature that prevents apps to mess up your tv. If it detects a major problem, it will break off the app, or even worse, restart your device.

If i disable watchdog, then will i brick tv maybe ?

Hack of TV is a "major problem". Watchdog has to be disabled, it's almost prerequisite. If you have doubts, read thread from the beginning and see how much people fixed their "problems" by disabling it :)
I do NOT receive any PM. Please use forum.

i have disabled it, but problem remains. After i put new file on share folder or usb, time bar stuck at 00:00 zeroes, video playing, commands on remote does not respond (even shutdown). After disabling watchdog, i must now physically to plug tv from outlet. Same file played again works normally.
Only factory reset will solve problem.

Is there error log somewhere, debug ?

yes,
but if you play video without root stick pluged in tv = urooted tv you have the same issue?
My tv gets stuck and restarts by itself only if i play video for first time ? Second playback and next playbacks working fine.
If i change something in title of file,
samyext4.img file is same? = 1.5 years old?
I use samygo hack over 1,5 years.
