I have a 2015 UN40JU6400 Samsung UHD Smart TV that works great but is a pain to automate. After working for many hours on the IP configuration of my TV, I found that the generic Samsung IR definition seemed to fit best with my remote building.
In browsing the compatibility guides here, I saw that Samsung supports serial thru the Ex-Link connector. I think that this may be my best bet, but before I buy another Simple Blaster and the related accessories, I wanted to ask a couple of questions:
Has anyone used serial to Ex-Link to control their late model Samsung Smart TV? If so, do you have more discreet control than using IR? Power on?
