I second everything said above, and particularly the #4 suggestion for improvement. To add one further Art Mode bug, it appears that there is no way to have Anynet+ automatically disable once Art Mode is activated. As a result, if you have a soundbar or sound system connected via HDMI-ARC and intend to play music through it (such as Spotify through bluetooth or wifi to the soundbar), Anynet+ will change the input on the external sound system from your chosen input back to HDMI-ARC. Given Art Mode doesn't create any audio, there's no need to have the external sound system automatically set to HDMI, however Anynet+ will force any input selected to HDMI within about 5 seconds. Having contacted Samsung, I've been told this is presently not possible. My only solution appears to be (a) turn off Anynet+ each time before enabling Art Mode; or (b) connect the tv and external speaker/ soundbar with another (lossy) connection, such as optical. Grateful if anyone has encountered a solution, or if a firmware release is in the pipeline to fix the bugs in this thread.
