New Samsung Releases


Recommended Posts

Hi, please move if I've posted in the wrong place..

 

I have an ua82nu8000 and have grown sick of the dlna experience so was intending to install the Emby app. Alas I'm in Australia so it's not available through Samsung..

 

"Oh cool! The Emby website and forums all say I can sideload it via USB! With instructions for Samsung Tizen SmartTVs (2015 - Present)! Mines included in that! Yay! " I thought for about 10 minutes

 

Download files

-unzipped to usb

-plugged into TV following the instructions and....

NOTHING

 

No prompts, no messages, nothing installed.

Try a different usb stick/format/port/fresh download. Nothing.

Check website and forums... No mention of limitations or issues.

 

Dlna (still with no TRUE folder view ) it is I guess.

 

Are you sure you have a Tizen unit?

Assuming that model is correct then it's a 2018 Tizen.  However, there have been several people with that same model who have installed it with no problem so we may need to figure out where the problem is

First of all Luke just copied 1.0.67 out there a little while ago so you may want to redownload it unless just did.

 

After you formatted and unzipped the files the structure was like

 

root

\userwidget

\userwidget\emby.tmg

\userwidget\widget.license

 

Also, was the usb drive unlocked/writeable

Strange, because even if my disk is empty a box will pop up in the upper right hand corner and ask if I want to browse the files on my usb

Many times. Searched everywhere for it and no luck

 

Do you have a Samsung account and are you logged on with it?

 

Is the TV connected to the Internet?

 

I'm running out of ideas :)

 

 

This is where you should see it once in finally installs.  Then you can add a shortcut to Home

 

Apps

Settings (gear icon top right corner)

Sorry, had to get some sleep.

Do you have a Samsung account and are you logged on with it?

Yes. No, not logged in. I think I only ever have once, found no benefit so logged out ever since.

 

 

Is the TV connected to the Internet?

Always. Ethernet to Synology rt2600ac.

Me too! Apps list hasn't changed. Scrolling all the way left and right to find it and nothing.

Success! Extracted zip to 128gb USB3.0 (also had a folder with 2 or 3 images) inserted while tv was on and it installed immediately!

 

Thanks, your feedback made me persevere and now we know.

Just installed the latest Samsung Emby userwidget 1.0.69 - Quick test shows works flawlessly, as it does every time for me.

 

Though with my older TV I do have to remove the old version and restart the TV before the latest will install (otherwise the TV just informs me a USB media device has been connected).

The newer TV upgrades with no issues.

 

Thanks guys for these regular updates :)

Good morning all. I would love to have your help updating eby on my samsung tv. I downloaded the Tizen zip, but I still have the message in emby that an update is available. Did I make a mistake? however I did the same as the installation.

 


I took this link:

Did you uninstall the previous version first?  My 2018 won't update over a previous version.  

 

Going into settings while running the app and it should say 1.0.71
