I use YouTube TV as my television service and would like my Samsung TV to start up on that instead of TVPlus. Is there a way to change the default startup app?
I'm looking for this feature too. I spent >$2000 on a TV and only use it for PleX. It should be a simple development task to enable setting a default app, since that's already possible with SamsungTV hardcoded. You're half way there. I DO NOT want to use Autorun Last App since sometimes the TV is used for YouTube, and we shouldn't have to religiously open PleX before shutting the TV off so it remembers to open it.
I feel everyones frustration. I have the same issue. I have the 65" q90T bought in January, 21. You would think with it being a 2020 set the issue would have been resolved by now. Hopefully there will be an update. When it defaults to Samsung TV Plus, that means they can report more eyeballs watching and with more eyeballs, higher ad revenue....just a thought.
I use the Spectrum TV app because I'm a Spectrum customer/subscriber. It was my hope to avoid the cable-box and associated wires only to find I can't go directly to the Spectrum App. I do NOT want to rent a cable box JUST to avoid this dilemma. Samsung should "do the right thing" and allow the customer to select the default app. Where do they (think) they make their money? Off the hardware or off the streaming end of things? I guess they want to capitalize off of both. $.02
Hello, I'm back after 3 months of daily use. Because no action has been taken on this, I have completely disabled internet connectivity from my device (no ad money for Samsung!) and simply use my 86" TV as a computer monitor. I will not be buying Samsung devices in the future.
Does Samsung bother to monitor this community? It'd be so nice if they cared and fixed this. I cut cable and want to get right to Hulu Live, I'd settle for getting right to the Hulu app. Samsung built the TV with a feature that is suppose to do that but doesn't. Is it meant to frustrate and get rid of their customers?
