Yeah. I'm really disappointed. When we remodeled our kitchen a couple of years ago when we moved in here we replaced everything with samsung appliances.

My kitchen is great. I don't like their phones, but I don't like *anyone's* smartphones but samsung always had at least good displays, so I figured I'd buy their TV over a competitors that was the same price.

My mistake. I didn't count on them sticking me with the worst remote in the world, ($7 for a replacement on amazon - that's how chintzy it is) and that making me furble through a seemingly endless array of vendor partner apps before I get to the "My PC" option that lets me get back to what I use this screen for primarily - a computer monitor.

I asked them where I could find a compatible replacement remote with source buttons on it. They said I'm locked in.

I finally told them fine, I'll hack the firmware and replace it with something open source. If it bricks the TV I'll return it under warranty anyway.

"You can't do that"

Really? How do you intend to stop me?

"That will void the warranty"

Not if I don't tell you I did it. Just like you didn't tell me I'd be saddled with all of your vendor partners every time I use the remote on this expensive TV i just bought from you.
