Such poor software engineering

It is so sad that a company that has innovated design and hardware technologies of consumer electronics is so poor devloping software that is even close to what can be expected.

Now, I have a 55" LED flat screen TV with a harddisk to enable timeshifting. And you know what ... if you watch a program that is still recording, and the recording comes to the end ... obviously while you are still viewing in catch up mode ... the viewing stops when the recording stops and you have to re-start and fast forward to where you were. And the timeshifted recordings are not stored in the archive/navigator for later playback. Needless to add further comments.

As the TV can only record what is being viewed I bought a blueray HDD recorder from Samsung too. I often program the recording of various program and want to start viewing while it is still recording. My 5 year old DVB-T recording can support that. But Samsung .. no. The recorded program does not show up in the navigator until the recording is finalized. So, I send it back and recovered my money.

And if this was not enough ... it is possible to lock certain channels on the TV as for managing how much TV the children watch or what have you. But, the description in the manual how to unlock is not working ... actually it displays the secret PIN code in the channel selection field ... fully visible.
