BUG: Orange cursor box missing on app launch (2016 Samsung KS7000)

smart-tv

#1
  • Almost every time I open the Plex app on the Samsung smart hub, the orange cursor box is missing from the screen
  • Although the orange box is missing, the buttons still seem to work - I can (blindly) navigate to other sections
  • The orange box shows up on the very top menu bar (search, settings)
  • I've tried uninstalling and re-installing the app, including full power-downs in between - no improvement

Work-around: Quitting the app and re-launching temporarily fixes the issue, until the next time (usually after not using the app for a while)

Please help fix this issue!

Plex app 3.0.6 (2.10.8)
Tizen 2.4.0
PMS 1.3.4.3285 (QNAP)
TV model UE49KS7000 (2016)

Any staff able to take a look at this?

I think this has been resolved by turning on the System Setting to auto launch the Smart Hub.


#4

I've the same problem with KS9000!

Just came to say alexhjones is right, at least in my case; I turned auto-launch and 'last app' to ON and Plex is much quicker and the orange selection box stays around.

I have the same issue on my Samsung 2016 TV (UE49KU6100), when I turn on the TV, I start the Plex App, orange box does not work, quit the App and restart and it works fine.

Don't want to use the workaround, to auto-launch the last App, as I like the TV to show live TV when turned on.

Is this a Samsung problem with how Apps work on Samsung Tvs or is it an issue that Plex could fix in a future App update, seems to be a very easy to recreate the problem on Samsung 2016 Tvs?
