Nasty firmware update butchers Samsung smart TVs so bad, they have to be repaired

Re: Bricked TVs

At least one update has been required for TVs because ITV decided to change the audio encoding method on their DVB-S2 channels to one that was technically legal, but uncommon.

The fact that this hasn't bricked US-market sets does point to it being a regional or UK-only update and if it's the latter I wouldn't be at all surprised to find it wasn't tested.

Quality brutish workmanship
