Update circle remains during live tv watching


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I just had a SW update for my Samsung TV UE55KS7005. It's now at version 1201.

I watch TV via my HD Homerun tuner box. I can select HD Homerun, browser folder with channels and then select TV channel to watch live tv.

Earlier this has worked fine. It still works after the SW upgrade to version 1201, but the Samsung TV constantly shows a rotating circle in the middle of the picture.

Anybody else experiencing this? Is there an fix for this?

Congrats on getting the elusive update that many worldwide, including me, are waiting for. As for the rotating circle, that usually means the app is loading and stops when it is completely loaded. Something may be happening where the loader is: 1. not finishing; 2. is not giving out a finished command to the Tizen OS to kill the icon; or 3. a new feature, enjoy. It can also mean buffering is going on. That would be Internet speed and quality of service.

These days there are way too many variables that take time to locate issues. And many times more gets broken than fixed in these updates. I would suggest doing a Power Cycle, that you should do after any and all updates, by unplugging the OC box and power from the TV, waiting 30-60 seconds and then plug in the OCB and then the power. Hopefully this will "seat/set" the update and it will work "better". Good Luck.

Thanks Farmerbob,

I've uplugged the TV for hours and then plugged it in again. It did not resolve the issue. It appears to be a bug with Tizen 1201 when opening up a HD Homerun tuner on the network via the default Samsung Tizen DNLA interface (the plain yellow folder UI where I can just pick a channel).

Well hopefully the'll fix it one day. I can just watch TV via Windows Media Center using the same tuners - no problem then.

I'm not sure what the have changed in the tizen os. It looks the same to me and there are no new apps in the apps section. HD Homerun with RUI interface is still not possible. Emby is still not available in the apps section, so really nothing new that I was hoping for in this release.

I'm sorry to hear you did not get relief from a Power Cycle. Unfortunately you are not the only one that has/is suffering from wonky FW updates and symptoms are all over the place. My TV went "wrong" after an earlier version and Samsung offered to replaced it. BUT replacing my TV is not going to fix their bad updates. Who's to say that the next or same update doesn't do the same to the next TV? I have yet to go through the process of swapping this one out to see what future FW releases might do to fix it. I read in forums daily of people remarking on how much better their sets worked before whatever release and now there are problems. I'm waiting on the 1201.6, or further, to see what and if it fixes or breaks in mine. I fear that this will become a big problem for Samsung.

The problem you describe is sounding more like a "third party app vendor" and Samsung mesh issue. And this too can be due to changes in the FW that causes a "wonky" FW release. This makes it a problem for the app providers as well and many times they get blamed when it's not them. The advent and serious implementation of Upgradable Firmware was monumental. But also a curse if it's not dealt with properly and diligently.

Since I haven't gotten 1201.6 yet, I'm now severely curious as to what fun I have to look forward to. We'll have to see . . .

It was reported that "supposedly" we are to get the 2017 version of Tizen that is in the current batch of TV's sometime this Fall. I have conversed with a forum moderator that seems to remember reading the same and we are looking for any information about it. That's a BIG "we'll have to see . . ." AND fingers crossed so tight that they are blue. Hopefully the new OS will clean up a lot of problems and allow our sets to operate to their best abilities as reported that they did once. Fingers still crossed and a big stalling point of me exchanging my TV.

      Whenever necessary, you can create, build, register, and submit newer versions of your Galaxy Watch app for publication in Galaxy Store. You can use Seller Portal to update apps that you created using Galaxy Watch Designer or Tizen Studio.
      Note: All statements below apply to apps developed using either Galaxy Watch Designer or Tizen Studio, except for the Tizen Studio step 4 in the procedure below.
      Once you update the app in Seller Portal, a new update registration is created, which you complete and submit for review processing. During registration and review processing, the previous version continues to be published in Galaxy Store.
      For an updated version:
      The filename must be different from all previous version filenames.
      The package ID must be the same as for the first app version.
      The app version number must be greater than the previous version number.
      The author certificate must be the same as for the first app version.
      Caution: Without the app’s author certificate, you cannot update the app. We recommend that you store multiple backup copies somewhere other than on your development computer.
      To create, build, register, and submit an updated app version
      Get the author certificate of the app.
      Get the filename, package ID, and version number (version name) of the current app version in Seller Portal:
      a. Click Applications, and navigate to and click [your published app title].
      b. Click the Binary tab and [your latest binary filename].

      In Galaxy Watch Designer:
      a. Back up your project and save it in a different directory.
      b. Create the new app version.
      c. Click Project > Build. Then specify the same package ID and a different version number, use the same author certificate, and build the updated binary file(s) (.tpk).
      d. Rename the resulting binary files, and keep them in the same workspace directory.
      In Tizen Studio:
      a. Open either your app’s Tizen project tizen-manifest.xml file (Native) or config.xml file (Web).
      b. In the Overview tab, specify the update version number in the Version field.
      c. Use the certificate manager to ensure you have a certificate profile that contains your app’s author certificate.
      Note: You do not need to use the same certificate profile, just the same author certificate. You can re-use an author certificate across multiple certificate profiles.
      d. Build a signed package for your app.
      e. In the console, note the output location of the compiled .tpk (Native) or .wgt (Web) update binary file, and rename if necessary.
      In Seller Portal:
      a. Click Applications, navigate to your published app, and click Update.
      b. Register the update version information and upload the updated binary files.
      c. Deselect any unsupported distribution device groups.
      d. Submit the update version for review processing by clicking Submit.
      If the updated version does not pass review processing, the Samsung review team will notify you. You can then change the updated version, upload the changed updated binary file, and submit the updated version again.

      Samsung launched the Galaxy Watch Active alongside the S10 earlier this year, positively surprising us with a great all-round wearable product. Its the first Tizen watch to introduce Samsung's new OneUI, which has since made its way to the other smartwatches in the company's lineup. Now, the Active is first in line to receive another software update and with a slew of new capabilities such as a night mode, automatic swimming recognition, a new low heart rate alert, improved Bixby actions, and some general UX improvements.
      Let's get Samsung's voice assistant everyone loves to hate out of the way first. It now lets you start customized exercise routines with specific goals and gives you the long-awaited ability to ask for the time differences between cities. The update should also make it easier to control SmartThings devices and change system settings such as brightness.

      Proceeding to UI improvements, Tizen gets a new Goodnight Mode, which turns off the display at night and shows you a dedicated watch face with the press of a button. You can turn off notifications altogether while in this mode, or you can customize which notifications you'd still like to receive.
      The App Tray has been updated to remove the dial-inspired interface, offering you horizontal swipes through pages of apps instead. With the Watch Active not having a rotating bezel, this makes sense.

      On the fitness front, the watch adds automatic swimming recognition to the existing six activities it could detect before. Additionally, you can now set up custom low heart rate alerts alongside the existing high warnings. If your pulse is abnormal for more than 10 minutes, you'll receive a notification. The breathing guide also received some minor UX updates and should help you calm down more efficiently.
      You can take a look at the full changelog for this update below:
      Build Number : R500XXU1CSG6
      Tizen version : Tizen 4.0.0.5
      Release Date : 2019-07-23
      - New Bixby
      . New Bixby helps you get tasks done more easily. Start an exercise with specific goals or ask time difference between your city and the one you will be traveling.
      - Samsung Health
      . Swimming is new addition to auto detecting exercise types.
      . HR Low Alert is added for a heart health.
      . Breath Guide graphics are improved.
      - App Tray UI
      . App Tray UI has been improved for an easier, more intuitive and faster searching and activation.
      - Goodnight Mode UI
      . A dedicated view will be offered while Goodnight mode is on.
      - Disabled automated sync of Alarm from paired Smartphone to Watch
      Tizen version 4.0.0.5 is currently rolling out to the Galaxy Watch Active, but as always, it might be a little while before your device receives it.
