I was going to be getting a new TV and had a question regarding the setup for the Samsung tv. I was reading that the Samsung TV’s do not support power on via ethernet, but I was still a little unclear about the optional setups for power on. I can use the IR, but i’d rather not have that showing if not possible (although it’s not the end of the world).
The TV would be UN75ES9000F. I saw that I would have to use the serial connection–and the TV has an RS232 connection serial port. Can I just buy an ethernet to serial (IP2SL) and use a serial cable to connect that to the network? Is that the preferred method? Or would there be anything else that I should do?
