UE55MU9000 - Unable to turn off screen when playing music

It probably would reduce power consumption by dimming the back-light. However it is primarily just to avoid having an unwanted bright screen with a static image. Many people like to listen to music or a radio channel to help them go to sleep.

I had LG tv before. I mostly listen music through my home theater. Now I bought samsung thinking it is upgraded to current standard. Now I am dissapointed to se the best feature reamoved. I simply dont care all those gimmick features shown in advertisement. Now my money is gone and all it is left with is this tv Amd a brand who doesnt listens to consumers. And btw I have made many people not to buy samsung smart tv. Better buy LG or something else. My last Samsung TV forever. Never using this TV again. Proud that many choose not to buy samsung because of me.

Let me add my voice to the chorus. This will be my last Samsung TV. I also like to listen to music or other content on my TV, and now they've ruined it. And, why? Does it same them any money to manufacture the TV without that software feature? I was also shocked to see that they took away the analog audio output (another deal-breaker for me), but at least I can imagine they saved $3 in cost by taking that away. There is NO possible reason to take away the screen off. Just idiocy.

I bought a NU7100 last back Friday. I too would like to turn off the display when listening to music on apps like Spotify. This is my first flat-screen TV. I'm surprised to find that this feature is not available on this "smart" TV. And now finding out on here that older Samsung TVs used to have the feature , and my new one doesn't, makes me think that Samsung TVs might be getting "dumber". Seems like such a basic, no-brainer feature. Kind of silly that we are required to have the display on when we're listening to a music app. I'm also hoping for a software update from Samsung. I wonder if they actually read these posts, or if they are just here to pacify us.

Have to agree with all the comments above, not very good  work from the Samsung people. Update and fix, Please.
