Before Using the Recording and Timeshift Functions
"" Availability depends on the specific model and area.
Before Using the Recording and Schedule Recording Functions
●● To set up a Schedule Recording, you must first set the TV's clock. Set the Clock (System
Time
Clock).
●● You can set up a maximum total of 30 Schedule Viewing and Schedule Recording entries.
●● Recordings are DRM-protected and therefore cannot be played back on a computer or on a
different TV. In addition, these files cannot be played back on your TV if its video circuit has
been replaced.
●● A USB hard drive with a speed of 5,400rpm or above is recommended. However, RAID-type USB
hard drives are not supported.
●● USB memory sticks are not supported.
●● The total recording capacity may vary depending on the amount of available hard drive space
and the recording quality level.
●● Schedule Recording requires at least 100MB of free space on the USB storage device. Recording
will stop if the available storage space falls below 50MB while recording is in progress.
●● If the available storage space falls below 500MB while both the Schedule Recording and Timeshift
functions are in progress, only the recording will stop.
●● The maximum recording time is 720 minutes.
●● A video is played according to the TV settings.
●● If the input signal is changed while recording is in progress, the screen will go blank until the
change is made. In this case, recording will resume, but
will not be available.
●● Device Performance Test must be performed on the USB storage device connected to the TV
before a recording can be made. To perform the Device Performance Test, select USB Drive in
the MY CONTENT panel and then select the recording device. When you make a recording on the
Guide or Programme Info screen, if the USB storage device has failed in the Device Performance
Test, the Format Device and Device Performance Test are performed again.
●● When using the Record or Schedule Recording function, the actual recording may start a second
or two later than the specified time.
●● If the Schedule Recording function is operating while a recording is being made on an HDMI-CEC
external device, the priority is given to the Schedule Recording.
●● Connecting a recording device to the TV automatically deletes abnormally saved recording files.
●● If the Off Timer or Auto Power Off has been set, the TV will overide these settings, continue to
record, and turn off after the recording has ended.
Before the Using Timeshift Function
●● A USB hard drive with a speed of 5,400rpm or above is recommended. However, RAID-type USB
hard drives are not supported.
●● USB memory sticks or flash drives are not supported.
●● The total recording capacity may vary depending on the amount of available hard drive space
and the recording quality level.
●● If the available storage space falls below 500MB while both the Schedule Recording and Timeshift
functions are in progress, only the recording will stop.
●● The maximum amount of time available for the Timeshift function is 90 minutes.
●● The Timeshift function is not available for locked channels.
●● A time-shifted video is played according to the TV settings.
●● Before the Timeshift function can be used, the Device Performance Test must be performed on
the USB storage device connected to the TV. To perform the Device Performance Test, select
USB Drive in the MY CONTENT panel and then select the recording device.
●● The Timeshift function may be terminated automatically once it reaches its maximum capacity.
●● The Timeshift function requires at least 1.5GB of free space available on the USB storage device.
●● Launching an app, switching to an analogue channel, or changing the TV to a mode that does
not support the Timeshift function automatically terminates the Timeshift function. The Timeshift
operation will resume if the TV is changed back to a digital channel again.

The method of using a Kensington Lock may differ for each TV model. Refer to the Kensington Lock
manual for more information.
Read before setting up a wireless Internet connection
Precautions for wireless Internet
●● This TV supports the IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n communication protocols. Samsung recommends using
IEEE 802.11n. Video files stored on a device connected to the TV via Home Network may not play
back smoothly.
●● To use wireless Internet, the TV must be connected to a wireless router or modem. If the wireless
router supports DHCP, the TV can use a DHCP or static IP address to connect to the wireless
network.
●● Select a channel that is not currently in use for the wireless router. If the channel set for the
wireless router is currently being used by another device, the result is usually interference and/or
a communications failure.
●● Most wireless networks have an optional security system. To enable a wireless network's security
system, you need to create a password using characters and numbers. This password is then
needed to connect to a security-enabled AP.
Wireless security protocols
●● The TV only supports the following wireless network security protocols.
–– Authentication Modes: WEP, WPAPSK, WPA2PSK
–– Encryption Types: WEP, TKIP, AES
●● In compliance with the newest Wi-Fi certification specifications, Samsung TVs do not support
WEP or TKIP security encryption in networks running in the 802.11n mode.
●● If the wireless router supports WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup), you can connect the TV to your
network using PBC (Push Button Configuration) or a PIN (Personal Identification Number). WPS
automatically configures the SSID and WPA key settings.
●● The TV cannot connect to non-certified wireless routers.
Read Before Connecting a Computer (Supported
Resolutions)
●● When you connect your TV to a computer, set the computer's video card to one of the standard
resolutions listed in the tables below or on the next page. The TV will automatically adjust to the
resolution you choose. Note that the optimal and recommended resolution is 1920 X 1080 at 60
Hz.
●● Choosing a resolution not included in the tables can result in a blank screen or just the power
indicator turning on.
●● Refer to the user manual of your graphics card for compatible resolutions.

Glossary
●● 480i / 480p / 720p / 1080i / 1080p
Generally refers to the number of effective scanning lines that determines the screen's resolution.
There are two scanning methods: interlaced and progressive.
–– Scanning
Sequential projection of pixels to form images. The higher the number of pixels, the clearer
and more vivid the images.
–– Progressive
A sequential scanning method that scans every line, one after another.
–– Interlaced
A staggered scanning method that scans every other line until the end of the screen and then
fills in the remaining lines.
Example) If the number of horizontal scan lines is 480i
Scans 240 lines from start to finish and then scans the remaining 240 lines for a total of 480
lines.
* General differences between 480i and 480p are as follows:

●● ARC (Audio Return Channel)
ARC lets the TV output digital sound to an audio device and input digital sound from the same
audio device through one HDMI cable. However, ARC is only available through the HDMI (ARC)
port and only when the TV is connected to an ARC-enabled AV receiver.
●● DVI (Digital Visual Interface)
Connecting the TV's DVI connector to a computer's DVI connector via an HDMI-to-DVI cable
lets you use the TV as a computer monitor. However, HDMI-to-DVI cables deliver video signals
only. You must connect a set of speakers to the computer using a separate cable to hear the
computer's audio.
●● HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface)
HDMI is a method of transmitting both video and audio signals via a single cable.
●● Dynamic versus Static IP Addresses
If the network requires a dynamic IP address, use an ADSL modem or router that supports
the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). Modems and routers that support DHCP
automatically provide the IP address, subnet mask, gateway and DNS values the TV needs to
access the Internet, so they do not have to be entered manually. Most home networks use a
dynamic IP address.
If the network requires a static IP address, enter the IP address, subnet mask, gateway, and DNS
values manually when setting up the network connection. To get the IP address, subnet mask,
gateway and DNS values, contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
If the network requires a static IP address, use an ADSL modem that supports DHCP. ADSL
modems that support DHCP also allow static IP addresses.
●● Bluetooth
Bluetooth is a short-distance wireless communication protocol allowing information exchange
between connected mobile phones, laptops, earphones and headphones with Bluetoothcompatible devices. It is mostly used for low-power consuming wireless connections within a
very short-distance of 10m.
●● Ethernet
Ethernet is a LAN (Local Area Network) that uses coaxial cables standardised by the IEEE.
●● Component Connection
Component connections are mostly used for game consoles and transmit the video signal by
splitting it into a luminance signal (Y) and two colour signals (Pb and Pr). The connector is
marked as [Component IN]_(Pr, Pb, Y) on the back of the TV. On some devices, it is sometimes
marked as Cr, Cb, Y. Cb and Cr are the digital conversions of the Pb and Pr signals.
The connectors are normally colour-coded red (R), blue (B), and green (G) and offer the best
picture quality possible for an analogue connection.
