From the information that was just made available to me, it seems that the 2012 TVs will receive RVU capabilities using the HR34 in the very near future. Unfortunately, I do not have a time frame for implementation.

It must have QAM as it showed Cox HD channels in HD when hooked straight to the cable.

As a matter of fact, these two models are actually the same units. The last few characters in the model number are used by Samsung for shipping and tracking purposes mainly and are sometimes used by retailers to better track their own inventory. Very rarely do these characters mean that the units offer different features or sizes.

I would be happy to help. Althought the QWERTY remote will indeed not be compatible with the ES6100 (as you have already found out), it will be compatible with a standard USB keyboard. I'm not sure how you are connecting the Logitec keyboard, but it should work if it is a USB keyboard. Please contact a Geek Squad associate or contact Samsung Support for further assistance.

LCD traditionally uses a CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp) backlighting system that runs across the rear internal portion of the unit to illuminate the LCD panel from behind. This lamp technology enjoys a tremendous following of enthusiasts, and translates into years of enjoyment of an affirmed, reliable and trusted technology.

LED (in this application, it is also known as LCD-LED) is relatively new on the market, and uses specialized versions of the LED lights that have been used for years. It allows LCD panels to be lit either from behind (replacing the CCFLs with LEDs), or from the side using an efficient energy friendly infrastructure that emits light evenly behind the panel in order to illuminate the entire LCD panel equally, called EDGE-LED. EDGE-LED Technology has a few additional benefits in that the design of the LED panel can be slimmer than traditional LCD panels and reduces energy consumption.

LED also has a few additional benefits, such as offering an accurate and natural color, as well as increased performance with black levels. LED is also free from toxic materials, such as mercury, lead or volatile organic compounds.

Use with headphones?

Can you connect headphones directly to the unit and turn off the speakers? If so, can the volume be controlled when using headphones?

Unfortunately, headphone jacks are not available on this unit; however you can still connect headphones to this unit with a third party headphone device (either through RCA, 3.5mm jack or Optical). Since the audio outputs on this unit are a fixed pass through type of connection, you would need an intermediary device to control the volume, since the TV does not have control of the volume coming out of the analogue and digital audio outputs. Additionally, the Samsung TVs will not offer direct wireless connectivity to wireless capable headphones.

All current generation Samsung TVs are digital cable and Antenna ready. All of our TVs include a coax ATSC/QAM tuner that handles digital and analogue broadcast signals as well. No external boxes or equipment needed (besides the coax cable itself) to view your basic cable. However, an antenna is required for over the air broadcasts. Premium service may require additional equipment and fees. Please contact your service provider for details.

Although the Samsung TVs will not be able to connect to a wireless printer, the ES6100 should be compatible with just about any 3rd party USB keyboard.
