It appears that Samsung have removed the ability to access the Recordings and Schedule Manager screen from the Smart Hub screen (it appears you could do on the previous years version of the smart hub). I can only access the screen via the overly convoluted route on the "Smart" remote and cannot access it at all via the standard remote.
Have I missed something or does anyone have a way to get to those screens?
Hi, did you ever fathom out how to access the Schedule Manager from the Standard remote?
Hi. No, there is no way to do it. Contacted Samsung UK support and they had no solution and merely said they'd pass on my concerns. There are 3 ways to get to the screen in question, from the Smart remote, using voice assistant "Open Schedule Manager screen" or as follows. When you've actually recorded something, you get a notification on the "Menu" screen that you access via the Smart Home screen. If you select the notification, you get options to Open, List and Close. If you choose List you will be taken to the Recordings screen and from there you can switch to the Schedule Manager screen. I think it's absolutely pathetic that such an important facility is so difficult to get to. The whole thing is a design mess. Such a shame as the TV is very good otherwise.
Many thanks for the reply, much appreciated. I really wonder how something so fundamental can be overlooked. My wife and I are not a fan of the Smart remote, it feels more like a memory test than anything else!! Call me old fashioned but just give me a traditional remote with clearly labelled buttons. Let's hope they change it in the future but I won't hold my breath. As you say we like the TV but it's sadly let down by the above.
