One reason they dont want to disable bluetooth might be the smart remote... please correct me if I am wrong. But it looks to me as if the "smart remote" only sends signal via some kind of bluetooth protocol because I where not able to spot any IR diodes and it needs to "pair" to the tv. So if you disable bluetooth your "smart remote" might be absolutely useless then. My guess is there where to lazy to implement some kind of split the bluetooth non-remote-control peripherals command stack from the bluetooth remote-control command stack , or it was simply not possible by the bt-hardware they used in the tv's.

Another vote here for a firmware update! Dear Samsung Dev's, I dont use wifi/bluetooth either. Huh Samsung unbelievable isn't it? There are users who dont use Network/Wireless on your tv's... Please stop patronizing us (your consumers) by not implementing or hiding important options in your firmware. Every Smartphone, PC, Notebook,Car gives the enduser the possibility to disable wireless devices... exept you! I had 4 bluetooth authorization requests just this week on my NU8009, this is annoying! Do you think your endusers are that stupid and are not able to handle an option "disable wireless" / "disable bluetooth"? Is this some kind of "hide as much functionality as possible to the users because there are some very dull ones" guidline? Or is there another reason hiding it from us? PS. And no, I dont want you to have send out an "engineer" to me, just do it in FW and you can save money
