Re: Samsung TV Plugin

I have an iPhone and I can control with Smart View version 1.5.6 (Couldn't even find version 2.x on the App store), but I am getting "Unable to pair..." message as well.
I have 60" HU8550 model that I purchased back in July 2014.

Hi,

It looks like your TV (UN48JU6500 ) is running the Tizhen OS which isn't supported :( . When my wife lets me buy a new TV I'd really like to get newer models supported.

Here's to hoping you got a new TV for XMas?

Re: Samsung TV Plugin

Yeah, a Tizen OS version of the plugin would be much appreciated :D

Re: Samsung TV Plugin

I have a Samsung model UA55J6200
(Australia, 2015, series 6)
can't get the plugin to work, :(
works fine on the Samsun app, but thats a version 2x

I can't find the older version of the app (Australian App Store issue, or no longer available??)

Re: Samsung TV Plugin

Hi All, this plugin only works for Series 5 Samsung TVs. This is pre-Tizen OS.

I wrote the plugin and have been happily using it for 2 years. Just after releasing the plugin (and purchasing my TV) Samsung released a new generation of TVs. The communication protocol changed and the plugin will not work for the later generations.

I would love to support newer models but simply don't have a newer TV to work with.

Anyone with Python skills is more than welcome add support. Let me know and I'll add the plugin to GitHub

I'll modify the first post to make this clearer and save future confusion.

Re: Samsung TV Plugin

Anybody working on a Python 3.0 version of this plugin? I'll give it an attempt if nobody else is. All I use it for is TV power off (power on via HDMI CEC on my receiver) and TV-on sensing. But a critical piece of my home theater automation.

Re: Samsung TV Plugin

I've been using the samsungtvws library to monitor and control the power of my Samsung TV through Indigo. There are some limitations but generally power on and off work without much issue.

I would welcome a plugin over what I have now. Script + variables + action groups

Hi Ramias,

I'll get this updated over the next few weeks to support Python 3. It's hard to gauge how many people still use this plugin (I still do!) given the age of TV's that it works with (Series 5 Samsung TVs).

I never published it in the Plugin Store given the confusion it was causing due to not working with Tizen OS. Per above, I don't think many people are using this...

Hi ryanbuckner,

I'm not sure what OS your TV uses but per above, this plugin only supports Series 5 Samsung TVs. (pre-Tizen OS).

Re: Samsung TV Plugin

My OS is Tizen - This plugin never worked for me. I would guess any new or updated Samsung TV plugin would need to support Tizen OS

That's to be expected. This plugin does not work with Tizen OS and newer.

Hi Ramias,

Please find the Python3 version (2.0) of the plugin below :D

https://www.dropbox.com/s/eh4re6ghr1dnfsp/Samsung%20TV.indigoPlugin.zip?dl=0

Yell out if you find any issues.

I've removed the Kodi CEC functionality as it no longer works.

If anyone else still uses the plugin please post here to let me know. If there are few active users I'll put the effort into adding it to the plugin store.

Just in case someone lands here and hasn't read the thread's history, this Plugin is for older Series 5 Samsung TVs. This plugin does not work with Tizen OS and newer.

Pete

Re: Samsung TV Plugin

Can confirm this does what I need it to do — turn off the tv and send an enter button command. Thanks for the update.
