Just got this TV: Samsung 55" MU6100 UHD TV (UA55MU6100SXNZ)

 

It has this one annoying feature.

 

A little widget/pop-up relating to Freeview OD keeps appearing in the top left side of the screen.  This persists for about 10 seconds unless manually cleared (return key). It's annoying.

 

Note: It isn't a program alert - just a notification telling us to press the red button to access Freeview.

 

I looked in the TV settings and  instruction manual but I can't see a way to turn it off.

 

Does anyone know if it's possible to turn this TV off and if so how?

It is the FreeviewPlus notification - not just a Samsung thing - happens on all FreeviewPlus units.

 

If you turn off FV Plus, it will go (Called HbbTV in the menus probably).

Thanks. It's an annoying 'feature'.

 

Any downside to switching HbbTV off?

 

The TV also has TVNZ_OD & 3_Now apps - would they continue to work?

My TV has a setting labelled 'Data Service' that I turned off - its stopped the freeview "plus" pop up that you describe, but all the other apps continue to work.

 

 

 

Edit:  My TV is also a Samsung TV, in case that helps!

you shoulds be able to fond somewhere to reduce the banner time. On my Sony, I cant use FV+ button until I see that splash up on the side of the screen.
