I have a Samsung 43 inch smart tv and used to use it via ethernet cable. 
Never had an issue using Smart View.

I've moved home and now using tv via wifi.
However, unless I go into roper settings and split the wifi into 2.4gh and 5gh, phone cannot find tv using Smart View?

Obviously if you split the wifi, it affects the speed. Shouldn't have to do this. 

Anyone any idea why it doesn't find tv?

Splitting the frequency won't affect the speed really as the 2.4ghz and 5ghz is from your device to the router not to the outside world

Your TV may only connect at a particular frequency

2.4ghz should be able to handle pretty much anything a normal user should throw at it

Think how you was able to do anything you do now before 5ghz existed

Also understand that 2.4ghz has a longer range and 5ghz has shorter range yes it is faster to the router but you circuit speed will still be your limiting factor and bottle neck if you hit max throughput

Tv has connected with WiFi together but unless split, smart view won't work.
I've tried and splitting does affect speed a little.
Combined, speed is slightly faster.
When I split the signal, my Roku tv apps started playing up 🤷‍♂️
I'm not actually supposed to be able to split the wifi according to Vodafone (my ISP)

You can split your frequencies if you want. Vodafone can't dictate that

It wierd that you can't see your TV whilst on wireless regardless of networks.

When you don't split the network it just has auto neg on and but devices should be able to connect. Some device doesn't like auto neg on though

Vodafone apparently did something to their router app to block you being able to split it.
No idea if they changed it back or what but I have the latest app and it does allow splitting.
Strange that via ethernet, I had no issue with the wifi combined but now tv is on wifi, combined, I CAN'T smart view

Yeah, they removed it and now it's back but no idea for how long.
