Failing to get smart TV current state

Hi there,

I’m trying to find details about TCP/HTTP API to read out the current state of my Samsung The Frame 2022 TV, but I can’t find any documentation on the API to do such things.

In a second phase I would also be interested in enabling the art mode through the API, cause the auto enable functionality isn’t really great. With the motion sensors in my house, I think I could do a lot better for this purpose.

I’ve tried to get the sate via curl but that’s not really working. On 8080 I get an unauthorized response. On all other ports that I’ve tried I get a connection failure.

Thanks for helping me

You need to ask this in the Smart TV Seller Office Q/A They should help you there. I don’t know if the Frame requires special partnership for developers or not.

Hi Ron,

Are you sure the link is right? Just points to a Q&A and not really to a place where I can ask questions…



The layout for Seller Office Q/A is “weird” and it doesn’t let me put direct links to the generalized Q/A’s So I just picked something that shows the parent directory. I think I picked the installer Q/A link,

You have to expand the Web Applications Q/A or Net Applications Q/A and there are various types of questions. Select the one most relevant to yours.
