Interestingly the Samsung site does show the newer version of TV firmware for my model but when I attempt a manual update it says I am on the latest. 


Only one person so far has confirmed they are on 1169


TV is on 1168

K650 is on 3111.2

R1's are on 3112.5



I might put it on a USB stick and update that way.
It's 1.3 gb so maybe it's changed a fair bit.
Thanks guys

Just checked Samsung website for my model. It shows 1168.2 as the latest and has a release date of 30th March 2017. I'm pretty sure mine hasn't updated in quite a while. Wondering if I should manually download it onto USB 


My model also has a new firmware, 1169.2 released 04.27, but when attempting online update it states i have the latest firmware installed.

I will try the USB method and report back here.

Hmm still some variation on updates depending on tv model.
I have been on 1168.2 for a while. And web site says I should be on 1169.

If you go into settings, support, contact samsung it gives you the exact firmware version your on

Mine reports 1168.2

im transfeering 1169.2 to a USB at the moment
