Just bought a smart TV with the intention to be able to monitor the DVR over my wireless network.  The TV connected to the wireless router, the IP address for my DVR also appeared on the TV’s browser, but instead of images each camera window says “missing plug-in”.  On the computer I would then have to adjust the active X security setting and add the DVR feed to ‘trusted sites’.  On the Smart TV though, the browser, while similar to windows, is identified as a Samsung browser and I cannot find either ‘security settings’ or ‘trusted sites’.  Anyone work with this issue yet?

Smart TV’s have no ability to run Active X controls because of its missing plugin. Unfortunately there is nothing you can do at the moment. The only thing you can do and this is if the TV is running android is install the Tech Pro SS Android application and view your cameras via that application or get yourself an Android Stick and do it there. Smart TV Browsers are only meant for browsing news feeds and email, unfortunately Developers have not realized that customers are looking for more features from their browsers.

Though it is not good news, thank you for your response.

Would it make any difference if I instead used an Ethernet or LAN cable plugged directly from the DVR to the TV?  I have done this with a non-Smart TV and it works fine.  Further, can the LAN port out on the DVR be split to feed both the non-smart and smart TV?  Would that require an Ethernet hub?

Just as a side note, I really have trouble getting the buttons on this forum to work: they highlight with identifying info when I place my cursor over them but flicker and require many clickings before working.  This is the only site my computer has that problem.

It would be the same as it would need the Active X controls to work. 

There is other things you can do like this article here. http://www.securitycameraking……ip-camera/

or : http://www.securitycameraking……tiple-tvs/

Please input your browser and version I will get this information to the Web Developers and see if its in our end.

OK, the browser version is a Samsung Electronics copyright 2010, but updated.  The version identifiers are as follows:

BIN_BE141029_1.1.487

EMP:1.487

EMP_F141024_01.1.033

 

I am in process (need one more connector) of hardwiring the DVR signal to an HDMI port (identified on the TV as the gaming port).  I had the DVR cabled to my older TV’s HDMI port and it worked fine but since it is only a 720p I switched that TV’s DVR feed to the VGA port since I had the cable and lose only a little resolution on that TV.  It will be interesting to see if the new 1080p TV shows much more clarity than the 720p from the DVR HDMI feed.

I also see HDMI splitter hubs (1 in x 2 or 4 out) for $30-40.  (They have great prices: a DVI to HDMI converter plug costs $3.90 + about $5.00 shipping versus $20 +tax at radioshack.  50′ HDMI cables for $31.00, etc.)

I took a brief look at RF modulators as your links above describe but somehow their usage escapes me.

RF modulators will allow you to utilize your existing cable setup. Running an HDMI cable from the recorder will also work. The modulator will modulate the video output to a specific channel that you then can tune into and view your cameras.
