has anyone got any experience with Samsung Smart TVs connected to the HH3?
When I had my Netgear router in the house supplying the internet to us, I could control the TV with my iOS device and also using my SGS (Samsung Galaxy).
I could streem directly from my phones to the TV. Since I had the HH3 this isn't possible anymore. the phones just cannot see the telly.
The TV still goes online and that better than before due to the increased internet access speed, but we cannot stream to it anymore.
I put my Netgear back to see if for some reason it could be a fault with the TV but not, as soon as I had the TV connected to the latter it all worked again.
any idea what I need to do to the HH3 to get this all back working?
I have no experience with samsung smart tv's but my bravia works fine with the hh3, the remote app on my galaxy s2 still works & also streaming movies/music/images. I never did any port forwarding for it to work on my old netgear dg834gt & haven't had to with the hh3 either.
It can be resolved by ditching the HH and using your own router. Any router that supports PPPoE will do you.
well thanks for that but that is already what I said in my 1st post that with my netgear it would work!
What's the problem then if you have your own router you can use?
I don't know of any ISP who supplies a half decent router, they're all hobbled in some way with custom firmware and are normally purchased at the lowest price possible.
Sorry to crach this thread, I have a similar problem with a Samsung Smart TV.
I have a Home hub 3 type b. I can log on to the internet through my tv, either through a cable or wireless, but i can't seem to get any data downloaded, in particular i can't update the smart hub with any apps, can't use the browser, nothing. I've signed into allshare so some data is getting through, but that's as far as i get.
I've contacted Samsung, but the 1st round of custmer service didn't know what to say and i'm waiting to hear from level two tech support. I've posted on AV forums, but no one knows the answer there.
Any ideas? I've done full resests on the smart hub, the tv and the home hub. It could be a faulty TV...
Further questions, if it doesn't work with either wifi or an ethernet cable, would getting a new router (say the ASUS RT-N56U) help in any way for the TV to be seen properly, or is that purely to improve wireless signals? My computer sees the TV as [TV]UE37ES6300, but the HH3 just shows this udhcp 1.18.1-VD Linux VDLinux. 1C:5A:3E:7C:22:AF Connected. IS that right?
Is HH3 the problem? Can i completely get rid of HH3 and buy an new modem or is that the only way to access BT Internet? I want to upgrade to Inifinity when it arrives here in December as my internet speed at best is 13mbs, often only 5mbs, but regularly drops to 0.5mbs on busy nights. Not much good for watching anything online... I'm only 600m from the exchange. Does that sound right?
Any help would be hugely appreciated.
Simple but a Netgear router that supports cable/fibre..... less stress for you..
Or, add netgear to network, but turn off DHCP
If you are only 600m from the exchange, do you know whether you are connected via a cabinet or direct to the exchange ?? If it's the latter you won't be able to get Infinity even when it is available, that needs a cabinet connection. You may as well find out before you get your hopes up !
