This has nothing to do with PLEX (I don't even know what that is),
but I'd like to comment on the problems I've had in accessing online
streaming content with my Samsung "smart" TV.
Even though the Samsung TV offers access to Netflix and other online
services, it is not usable. While watching Netflix content, the video
and audio become so out of sync that it is truly impossible to watch.
However, the workaround is easy because I also have a Samsung Blu-ray
player with online access, connected by HDMI to the TV. For reasons

competent than those who designed the TV. It works perfectly. In case
you are wondering, the TV and the Blu-ray are connected to the same
switch leading to the same router. There is no difference in their
In summary, you might try want to try avoiding the Samsung TV network
access altogether and use another box with an HDMI connection to the TV.
