Editing source titles

JUMP TO SOLUTION

UN65KS

Just installed a Roku stick to my TV.  Works perfectly.

when I select 'HOME' on my Samsung remote, I get a popup with a number of icons.  One, I'll call 'source,' is a small box containing a right-pointing arrow.  Selecting that gives me a list of sources.  Two of those display "DirecTV,' but one is actually my Roku stick.  How do I change "DirecTV" to "Roku?"

This should work for you. If you will call in to 800-726-7864 and ask the agent for remote management, they can connect to your television and assist you further with this issue.

Let's see if we're talking about the same thing.  There are a FEW devices that give "edit" and "move" as options when I press the up arrow.  On those, I can move the device left or right on the "Source" ribbon.

What I want to do is add icons to the popup strip when I press HOME.  That is, press HOME and on the left is (I think) Search, Source, and Settings.  TO the right of those I have Directv.  I want to add Roku to that ribbon.. Not the "Source" ribbon.  

I CAN select Roku on the "Source" Ribbon and move the icon.  I can't find how to add it to the "Home" ribbon.
