Update Software on a Samsung TV
Edited by Jay
If you own an older or newer Samsung TV, you may need to update the software to utilize new features or fix any bugs or issues. One of the more popular things to do these days is screen mirroring (Smart View on newer Samsung devices). This is when you can watch the content from a Samsung Smartphone or tablet on the screen of your TV. This is particularly handy when you want to see photographs and home videos that were taken or downloaded to your device, on a much larger display.
Depending on the age of your TV, you may or may not be able to screen mirror from your phone/tablet. However, ensuring that your TV has the latest software is advised, especially if you have an older model. In the following tutorial, we updated the software on a 32" LCD 350 series, using; a standard USB flash drive, a Windows computer, and Firefox web browser.
