I have bought this model QE55QN85BATXXH and in its manual have some indications about TimeShift, but it mentions "for some regions only", and in my case I cannot find a way to use it.
So, is there a way to activate this function, or am I in the "wrong region", and in this case I have to return it?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hmmm, interesting. Is that information available publicly? If yes, could you, please, provide the link?
Because it's interesting that for couple of European countries is available and for others like Romania is not. So is not from the HDD, is just because I'm in the wrong European country, and it seems to me that Samsung is not "politically correct" 😉
In this case I will return the TV, but maybe the link will help me find out which model have TimeShift/PVR in Romania, before switching to another manufacturer. 😞
Hi @Egg1 ,
And thank you for the info. Unfortunately I don't think is a copyright thing as Sony & LG deliver PVR & TimeShift devices in Romania. Is only Samsung that choose not to.
Unfortunately choosing another country is not an option, as the list to choose from is one of the "banned countries".
LE: I have tried that "change country trick", get all the countries, selected UK but still no TimeShift available - so it seems to be "firmware related".
So my only option now is to return Samsung TV (and the soundbar ordered at the same time) just to switch to another manufacturer. 🙁
Because the trick you mention, will just set the "Internet Service Location" to another country, probably just to install some other apps depending on the location, I have dig more searching for activate TimeShift and I have found one more interesting menu: the engineering menu: (153) UNLOCK YOUR SMART TV SECRET MENU (TV Engineering Mode) - YouTube
The problem here is that is very risky to play with the settings, but one in particular draw me the attention: "com.samsung/featureconf/tv_model_type" that might do the "region switch" needed for TimeShift.
But the question is now - what could be the proper value and if it is safe to change it. 😁
Any idea on this?
