UE55JS8500 - Spiteful Neighbour ruining TV veiwing via Bluetooth

Ok

So after complaining in the most polite and respectful way possible about my neighbors son who likes to turn the house into a party spot on the weekends I started getting bluetooth notifications on my tv. At first I had no idea who or what is was until I heard my neighbors son discussing his weird little campaign on the phone in the garden.

In short, roughly 4-5 times an hour my tv pops up with a connection request. It's been going on for months, since late last year to be exact. And I need to find a way for the tv to stop broadcasting a BT signal. I found the service menu and turned off every BT option there was but I'm not doing something right or I'm missing something completely.

I tried watch Lost In Space tonight and within the first episode, 3 notifications.

Help. Please help. Please.

And talking to the neighbor is not an option?

I've tried this. She asked her Son and he said "It's not me." so there's not much more I can do on that front. Truth be told, asking directly seemed to exacerbate the situation as it only intensified after.

I can't use the TV without the teenager connecting to it. I also game from time to time which I find is a good way to de-stress after work. But I'm basically without a tv. Any help would be appreciated.

Did you already accept the connection?

You can DENY the connection from Menu > Network > Multimedia Device Manager.
Select the device, click OK and select DENY from the menu and it will not connect or prompt you again.
Do not delete the device as you will get prompts again.

If he has friends also connecting, DENY those devices as well.

There doesn't seem to be an easy way of disableing Bluetooth on the TV.
