    Not exactly sure if this is correct forum to post in but I'm going ahead anyway... I just unboxed a samsung smart tv 5 series 5500 it seems a but sluggish this tv is a couple years old just hasn't been turned on until today. I updated it to the "latest" firmware 2170 I just want to make sure I can't manually update this to any newer firmware. Also my dad's smart tv looms very different then mine. Also are there any nodding options arable for my tv any help will be appcaited thanks

    Nobody said anything like that. They were talking about the 1984 issue.

    I don't know. I would suggest you contact Samsung support to find out, as I don't think anyone here specializes in Samsung Telescreens.

    I have two Hisense TVs and nobody seems to have any firmware or info for them, despite them being "updateable".

    I have tried dozens of so called smart TVs from loads of makers. Despite it being easy on the face of it (there have to be a thousand different android boards with HDMI out, many TVs I pull apart already have extra decoder boards and android takes mouse and keyboard input which you were already adding to your remote control) none of them have been worth using.
    I don't know why they are all so inept but they are and thus you continue to get to buy $20 devices to improve the functionality immeasurably.

    I don't know. I am happy with mine (Android TV / SONY X850C).
    It works quite well.
    I mean, what I normally use works quite well. Youtube, Netflix and Amazon video.
    Also I do movies using MX PLAYER (you can just install android apps), and it works well also with full subtitles, even ASS subtitles.
    Crunchyroll (from the play store also) works quite well.
    Not much complaining from me about it... Well, the web browser is shit, I suppose.
