Samsung Smart TV

Hi,

When my Samsung smart tv is connected to my Hub5 and I go into the home network devices page the TV shows as udhcp-1-19-4-VD-Linux-VDLinux-3-1-1-x-50-85-69-34-1e-2b not the name of the TV, is there any reason that the TV's name is not displayed properly?

 

I know I can change the name manually I just wondered why some devices show the proper name automatically.

 

Thanks in advance

 

Ian.

Re: Samsung Smart TV

It would appear to be showing the operating system and or the MAC address that the TV is using. This will be down to the TV manufacturer having set it that way. It is not a problem and should not stop the operation of the device on your network. You may find that some mobile phones also do not dispay a name, often it is their MAC address that is shown.
