Changing UE32H4570 to UE32H4500

Post by gwynedd » Sun Jan 18, 2015 11:13 am

Hi,

I hope this is simple!

I've purchased a UE32H4570 in Germany and want to change it to the UK model UE32H4500.

This is what I can already do:

- get in to the service menu, including unlocking local set, etc., using IR blaster
- change local set to EU-UK so that the TV acts like a UK model when setting up
- change the app store region during set-up

This is what I don't understand:

- should I be changing anything else like Model, BOM Model, SW Model?
- what do BOM Model and SW Model actually mean
- should I be changing the Tuner Type?

I already made the change on an F series but the EPG isn't fully functional, so I'd like to see if I can do it better on the new H series.

Bottomline: what do I need to do to make it act like on out-of-the-box UK 32H4500 (even with the Freeview / Freesat features)?

I've read lots and lots hear but would really appreciate specific answers to the above.

Thank you very much!

Hi Again,

Even if there isn't a specific answer, info on the meaning of SW model and BOM model would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I don`t know if this helps, but you should know the UK TV`s have built-in dvb-t2 tuners, and EU models have built-in tuner with only dvb-t support. so yo unever get the TV - UK-like because there are differences at hardware level.
I don`t know anyhing about bom model/sw model. And only if you are sure what are you doing, just then change tuner settings in service menu. We saw many bricks when users changed tuner and setted to type w/o existing hardware.

Thanks.

I'm just going to use the sat tuner so should be fine - I'll take care.

Can anybody help in understanding BOM and SW models?

I changed BOM model from h7080 (germany) to h7000 (France) easily
Sw model switched to uh7000 and the proposed resident country to france in the setup
Unfortunatly, french apps never appeared in smart hub even whith a hub region set to France
I still don't know why...
