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 Manager 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 5,400 rpm or above is recommended. However, RAID-type USB hard drives
are not supported.
●●
USB memory sticks are not supported.
●●
The total recording capacity may differ with the amount of available hard drive space and the recording
quality level.
●●
Schedule Recording requires at least 100 MB of free space on the USB storage device. Recording will stop if
the available storage space falls below 50 MB while recording is in progress.
●●
If the available storage space falls below 500 MB while both the Schedule Recording and Timeshift functions
are in progress, only the recording will stop.
●●
The maximum recording time is 720 minutes.
●●
Videos are 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.
●●
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.

Installing an anti-theft lock
An anti-theft lock is a physical device that can be used to protect the TV against theft. Look for the lock slot on the
back of the TV. The slot has a
icon next to it. To use the lock, wrap the lock cable around an object that is too heavy
to carry and then thread it through the TV's lock slot. The lock is sold separately. The method of using an anti-theft
lock may differ for each TV model. Refer to the lock's user manual for more information.

Precautions for wireless Internet
●●
This TV supports the IEEE 802.11 a /b /g /n /ac communication protocols. Samsung recommends using IEEE
802.11n. Video files stored on a device connected to the TV via a Home Network may not play back smoothly.
""
IEEE 802.11 ac communication protocol is not available on certain models.
●●
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
––
The TV cannot connect to non-certified wireless routers.
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.

Check the supported resolution for PC input signals.
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 3840 x 2160 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.
