This isn't correct. I have a Samsung Smart Tv with a HDMI port. I've tried two different Streaming Stick models and neither works with the TV. I've unplugged and rebooted the TV. (I've unplugged and reconnected everything - no help.) I tried a different HDMI cord. Still didn't work. From what I could understand online, there's some protective function that prevents the devices from communicating with each other. I have no idea if that's true, but it's the only explanation I could find. If anyone has any other suggestions, please let me know!
Actually, it worked fine for me. The TV has 2 different HDMI ports and it was just a matter of selecting the right one.
i'm having a similar problem, were you ever able to get yours to work?
Roku Streaming Stick+ and Samsung UN55F8000BF are not working together.
I know this is a year old post but I have a 2014 samsung not-so-smart-anymore tv and a roku ultra working just fine with only occasional hiccoughs, which I think have little to nothing to do with the tv.
