Anyone have the 2019 version to confirm whether an art mode available as advertised? Mine is from late 2018. Also, it was suggested that use Smart View app to put photos on the TV, however, that doesn't work. It doesn't see either of our Samsung TVs even if on same network (see Smart View app reviews).
Yeah, I feel I was mislead by Samsung advertising here. While I can display my pictures in ambient mode I'm forced to use their lousy limited matting templates. I would not have bought it had I known.
this is simple fix a Samsung....
Agreed. I just bought the samsung q80 and was hoping to display my photos in full screen like the artwork mode photos. I couldnt believe this was not possible and spent 2 days trying to figure out what I was missing. Forcing us to use the border makes the photos cropped and closer to 55" on my 75" display. Showing what looks like the wall is cool but feels gimmicky when forced to use it instead of displaying my photos full screen. Hopefully Samsung provides an update and fixes this flaw. Otherwise, I live the tv.
I just bought a 65q80r. I was really triggered by the ambient mode so that was one of the reasons to buy this tv. I also spent a lot of time trying to display a photo full screen in ambient mode but it's STILL not possible. Only with a very huge border around it. Samsung, how hard can it be to add a full screen template!? A feature to select you own background or background color can't be that hard either. Can you give us an update about these necessary features?
Hey Samsung, could you make it so we can watch TV with the 10" border as well? I bought a 75" tv but viewing the picture 50% smaller might be cool for 5 minutes like it is for displaying pictures in ambient mode.
