Many thanks for this.


After calling Samsung support and letting them take remote control of my TV for 20 mins they said they had done something that would fix the problem.

They failed.


Your answer sorted it for me.

Thanks for the fix, this has been irritating me since I got my NU8000 last week. 

I’ve turned off the auto return feature and will report back if it occurs again, hopefully not!

Many thanks. That one's been driving me up the wall... Not least because I couldn't do anything else until clicking the 'close' button, when it would take you to BBC One, regardless of what you wanted to do


I have a 9 Series with the same issue.  Unfortunately when I tried to follow your fix I found that 'Broadcasting' is greyed out and not selectable.  Any solutions to this would be much appreciated.




I've just realised that Broadcating is only Greyed Out when I'm not viewing Terestial TV.  Once this is selcted as the input source it becomes available and then the Auto Tune During Standby option can be de-selected.  I think this is what is causing the 'Select Region' to be re-triggered following a re-tune during standby and perhaps finding a new staion for example which then requires a user input on switching back on.  Hope this helps.

That caught me out at first. The TV has to be set to receive a broadcast signal, ie Set to Live TV (Freeview) first. Then if you go to settings etc again, you’ll be able to access the broadcasting menu.
