Mmmm, difficult due to the possible issues with the UHD box vs the Samsung Tv. It dosnt effect all Samsungs and yours might be ok.
Samsungs responce to me was that it was BTs problem and not theirs !, not very helpful when I had just spent £750 on one of their TVs.
On a positive note, the picture is stunning when using Netflix / Amazon Prime etc.
BT has also lost Fox Channel, if that worries you.
Thanks 🙂 Yep, if I didn't have the problems of wanting any cabling to be external too, I'd be tempted. I did get a free 6 month subscription of Netflic UHD package with the TV (which I've yet to activate/set up) so might see how that works over wireless connection first.
Must admit that the HD freeview channels & BT Sport HD channels are pretty amazing already - I believe they may be upscaled by the TV - so may well go for the regular box to start with at least & perhaps later if I've installed a Cat6 (?) externally myself, then give the UHD box ago.
I wonder what BT's take on this is - if for example the problem with Samsung TVs cant be resolved, will they let one 'downgrade' to the regular box?
FWIW, my TV is a Samsung UE48JU7000T.
Hi i am in the same boat as you regarding Samsung [js8500] and BT UHD box. I agree with you that Youview provides a good picture [don't have Sky] Think i am going to leave UHD box till next year when all the bugs are ironed out.
