Apart from the 2 bugs I already posted elsewhere for my new TV, I cannot find the facility for a wake-up timer, to, for example, wake me at 8am with Radio 4 news.....

 

Every other TV I have had for years had a simple UI to provide this feature - is it really true that this over-priced Samsung cannot do this simple thing? Or am I not finding the setup in the menus? (I have looked at every menu option!)

 

Appalling - I wish I'd bought another brand.... 😞

Hi @freemansteve 

 

Were you able to find this? If not, try this: Home > Settings > General > System Manager > Time > Off Timer > Setup > On.

 

Hope this helps!

Yes I found this, but surely it is an "off  time"? Meaning that a TV that was left on can be automatically turned off at a certain time.
What I wanted was an "on time", i.e. a "wake up alarm".. The TV state is off overnight, but at say 8:00 am, it comes on to say, a TV or digital radio channel. This is common on all decent TVs!

I'm gob smacked that this is missing - I've owned Samsung TVs for years but to remove this key functionality is not acceptable !

Just replaced my 9 year old Samsung tv which had a wake up facility. Can’t believe the new 2023 model has not got this facility or am I wrong
