I do NOT support "latest fw" at ALL. If you have one you should block updates on router and wait for it to STOP being "latest":)
If you want me to help you please paste FULL log(s) to "spoiler"/"code" bbcodes or provide link(s) to pasted file(s) on http://ctrlv.it/ Otherwise "NO HELP"!!!
If you want root DISABLE internet access to your device!!!!
DO NOT EVER INSTALL FIRMWARE UPGRADE !!!!

Ok. Maybe it?s better to create a list of firmware versions/model that are not able to change the OTN...

Just using a custom dns server and blocking the tv from accessing the update server would probably be the easiest way. I'm sure I could set something up for the loyal SamyGo users...

Does anyone know which IP the tv uses to ping the Samsung servers for those forced firmware updates?

It may be www.samsungotn.net

Thanks, can someone second that?

Btw, are you guys sure that they didn't just move the option to change the OTN Support value to the extended service menu? The "FACTORY+3SPEED" one?

Uh, that's bad.

Setting up a DNS proxy which blocks the TV form pinging the Samsung OTN servers would be the best solution we have right now.

I'll be able to set something up, as soon as somebody can verify which URL the tv uses. Is it just the single domain racocvr posted above?

If it's exactly "OTN support", that's the right one so set it to off ASAP, and don't touch to other "OTN" things :)
I do NOT receive any PM. Please use forum.
