Smart TV connect via hotspot, wifi, and more?

Recommended Posts

hi

 

wife just got a curve TV 55in from Samsung UA55NU7500KXXT for a rental

IT was a show model and I hope a bargain at 11,500bt (already reduced to 22,990)

She could not be there for the delivery so could not ask questions.

 

She would like to use Youtube occasionally as she uses the place to sleep after hospital night shift 

The place it will go is not now connected to internet.

Can one use a hotspot from a cellphone.?

If there is wifi in the area can the TV use that

................or must it have a wired connection?

 

She looked in the paper manual yesterday and it did not help.

Anyone happen to know the simple way?

 

First requirement is how to set up a cellphone hotspot for temporary use.......someone else will be paying the internet acct later.

 

thanks

 

ps can one play flight simulator and advanced games like Napoleonic wars,, Id like to try?IMG_9196.thumb.JPG.0937e5ad71c2b4318a9a9a6dc00df6ce.JPGIMG_9197.thumb.JPG.36580fbfb36e340136d300b65710d9f8.JPG

I have a similar TV and have it connected to 3BB, wireless router.

 

Does anyone know what type of a keyboard I can buy for this TV? Can use the remote, but to cumbersome.

 

Thanks.

   The video quality displayed on your TV using a hotspot wifi device will depend on your data connection speed and the capability of your source device to transmit video and audio to the TV. 

   I have a laptop connected by HDMI cable to my TV and use a wireless mouse and the Windows Onscreen Keyboard to navigate and type.

I will order one too. But I think I have to be careful - some of them seem to be sold without the USB receiver. It is better to look if there is a detailed list what is included... Will not work with all TV but mine has USB HID and so it theoretically should. If not then it is not a big loss.

If it doesn't work you will be guilty until the end of your days 😉

The one In the link above is a Rii clone..for 200 baht its worth taking the chance it won't work, but see no reason why it would not work..after all a keyboard is a keyboard and a mouse is a mouse the TV or computer knows no different.

Presumably the TV has built in wireless connection for say the keyboard and the mobile hotspot?

 

(Id need a Babelfish to know if its in john's list above)

These keyboards come with a USB "dongle"  when the "dongle" is plugged in to the TV, computer,Android box or whatever it is seen as a standard USB keyboard and mouse, the keyboard/mouse talks to the "dongle"  wirelessly   but not directly to the TV.
