Q: When running the installer I get an error [ERROR] Unable to bind server to port 80, please close down any webservers or other server running on Port 80 and start this installer again A: This means that there is already a web server running on port 80 on your machine. You will need to stop this for the installer to work as the Samsung TV expects the serverto be on port 80.The server is most likely to be either Apache or Microsoft IIS. You can possibly find out which by connecting to http://localhost in a browser, or using thenetstat command,
netstat -a -b

and find what executable is listening on port 80. Then kill/stop the server and run the installer
Q: E2Stream is only supplier with a runable executable for windows, how do I run on a MAC / Linux machine. A: You’ll first need to ensure you have aJRE (v7 or v8) installed. Then from a shell, you can locate the JVM with the command
which java

Unzip the downloaded zip into a directory and cd into this directory, then run with the following command:
/your-path-to-java/java -jar E2Stream-installer.jar

replacing your-path-to-java with the location of your JRE
Q: The installer is running find however my TV can’t connect to the installer when I synchronise A: This is likely to be a firewall or anti-virus program denying access to port 80.  Windows firewall in particular does prevent access.  Therefore you might want to add an exemption to windows firewall, or more simply, just disable for the brief period where you’re synchronising with the TV and re-enable once the synchronisation is complete.
Q: After installing E2Stream my other user synchronised apps have disappeared from the TV A: Unfortunately this is just the way the Samsung smart TV works – you can only synchronise with one address, however, from the installer configuration (menu on the top left) you can also select an additional directory that contains Smart TV apps, then when you synchronise, these will also be installed to the TV at the same time.
Q: I have a H-Series TV and can’t find the option to install/synchronise A: You have to ‘long press’ on one of the apps for the menu
Q: I’ve installed E2Stream on my D-Series SMART TV but it won’t stream any channels and stops at the ‘buffering’ stage. A:E2Stream currently isn’t compatible with D-Series TVs.
Q: Does E2Stream work with my Samsung SMART TV? A: E2Stream currently works on E, F and H series SMART TVs, and currently is not compatible with D Series TVs due to the version of the streaming functionality in use not being available on this model TV.
Q: Does E2Stream Support subtitles? A: Not yet. The Samsung player is capable of supporting subtitles but so far I’ve not been able to get any subtitles transported with the stream and am still working on this

  1. I’m hoping to take delivery of my Samsung smart telly tomorrow and am looking forward to installing E2Stream. I was wondering, is it possible for E2Stream to launch automatically when the TV starts up?

  2. Q: I have a H-Series TV and canโ€™t find the option to install/synchronise A: You have to โ€˜long pressโ€™ on one of the apps for the menu.

    Can you please clarify – ‘long press’ on which one of the apps? If I long press on an app, say Twitter, I get the Setting Server IP box but only if I login to a Samsung Account as ‘develop’ (without a password). I can then input the IP address given in the installer but nothing happens when I press OK.

    There does not appear to be any way of accessing the User Application and the installation instructions don’t match the menu I see. My H series has software version 2130 if that helps.

    Would appreciate you help.


  3. Hi,

    are there any plans for supporting the D-Series? I find your app very interesting, but cant use it because of my tv :-/


    1. Try going into the advanced settings and enabling the legacy player and transcoding.
      There has been limited success of getting it running on a D-Series using these settings.

      Beyond this, it’s difficult to support the D-Series as it’s a limitation of the supported codecs/stream capability within the D-Series that prevents this from running correctly.

  4. Hey, ive setuped my smart tv but when im choosing a channel it says:
    ‘(X) Error
    The object can not be found there.
    Error Message:
    But on my Enigma2 reciever, its changes the channels. But on the smart tv it doesnt streams.
    Sorry for my English im from Germany

    1. What model is your SMART TV, C,D,E,F or H series?
      The app is only supported on E,F and H series but you can get some moderate success on a D model by using the ‘legacy’ player in combination with transcoding.

  5. As suggested, I tried the legacy player with my D model. I have the same problems like Batu: The channel are switching but there is no picture.How do I transcode? Do I need a PC for this? Because my dreambox dm800se hasnt enough power to transcode on the fly HD streams?

    1. Unfortunately you need a more powerful E2 box to be able to transcode on the fly, e.g. a VU+ Duo2. The C and D series TVs don’t appear to be able to decode the .TS stream sent from the E2 box without it being transcoded, where as the E models onwards can do this. As such, there’s very little else I can do to support the C or D model – sorry ๐Ÿ™

  6. Hi.

    Just a question, because I’am technically interested…
    Is there a possibility for http authentication and encryption (httpS) or is/are there some limitations?

    BTW… excellent work. Impressive.


  7. Hi,

    I have a samsung (F series) . The stream runs not on all versions of newnigma properly. Had an older version and everything was fine. Now with newer version of newnigma Channel selection does not switch somehow and as soon I switch, the error message “ERROR, NOT FOUND” appears. As soon I switch back to the channel which is choosen on the box itself, than the stream works. I think there must be something with the channel switch function, either a certain setup on the box ( web interface is enabled etc. ) but I could not find out what the route cause is. Any idea ?

    By the way, as soon application starts, all channels/bouqets are listed in the menue….

  8. Got the solution !

    In case of this ERROR also described by BATU, there is also the option to switch to the “legacy” mode, without activating “transcoding” In my case it seems there is an older player version on TV as described in the installation menue. By setting “default” the box “streams” like “recording”, so the tuner is blocked to the selected channel on the box in case of older model or software on TV. That was the case or route cause for my model.
    I switched to “legacy” and now the app is running. The only disadvantage is that the direct switch of the bouqet or channel with the arrows on remote does not work, so you need to use the “enter” button to get back to the “channel selection” . There you can switch to bouqet/channel. Might be an option to develop further ๐Ÿ˜‰ to leverage functionality in the “legacy” mode.

    Anyway, great stuff !!

  9. When streaming some channels I get audio description as well as the normal audio – can this be disabled? and if so how?Thanks

    1. If the TV detects multiple audio channels in the stream (for some reason it can’t always!) it will show the number of audio channels in the info bar. If there’s more than one, pressing the red ‘A’ button will change the audio channel.

  10. Great thanks – I will give that a try.I\’m also having difficulty with recordings basically it gets stuck on the loading screen – I\’ve left it for 20 min or so and it doesn\’t come back.Fantastic software btw I\’ll send in a donation!

    1. I’ll send you an email wih some debug info I need so that I can fix whatever is causing the problem.

  11. Does anybody know if this nice application is running at a J-series Samsung TV(Model 2015)? I got the Information that these new models run Tizen OS. Don’t know how to Import local apps.

      1. I checked some Tizen details – it seems to be a complete change regarding OS, SDK and API and used p-languages. Is there a porting way for legacy applications available?

        1. looks like there is… I’ll need to download the tizen based sdk, but I’m at a bit of a disadvantage not having a tizen based TV yet..

          1. On that point I can help – I have one and if it can help to get it running…

          2. let me try to port and build it. I’ll upload a beta once I’ve got it working in the emulator that you can try ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Good day, Reading about testing on the J series. Are you any near supporting that one?I would like to sponser you if we can agree on a reasonable amount :-)Kind regards, Rien.

  13. Hi,i\’ve installed e2 stream on my ue55f7000 tv.But now when i gave in the ip number and want to connect i get a message that e2stream could not connect to the enigma receiver.I get an http 500 error.My stb is a Gigablue quad, and yes i\’ve done everything that is on the first screen in e2stream.Does someone know what is goeing wrong?Thanx in advanceStan

    1. Please check openwebif works through a browser. If this doesn’t work let me know and I’ll send you a couple of queries to run.

    2. Check the bouquets again!Some of them can’t be loaded by e2stream so there’s the 500 error.Use a bouquet editor to backup and then edit by removing some channels or bouquets .There might be a limited nr of channels that can be loaded.

  14. I just want to say thanks – This is awsome software and it works great on my blu-ray player.

    My player is BD-F6500 Smart 3D Blu-ray & DVD Player

  15. Hi, I own a UE40EH5300 and i tryd your app again after some time, and everything works well except for the streaming part.It says it\’s buffering and then stops with a error. So i thought maybe this needs a usb to \”cache/buffer\” but that didn\’t work either.Maybe you know this problem? Other from that GREAT app.

      1. good luck Pembo, i’ve also a ‘J’ Series and can’t wait for any development, a donation is ready & waiting ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. hi i installed it it does connect to receiver i can see channel list even EPG but when i want ot watch it just say Erro The object can not be found here. error message Not found error

  17. I’m about to buy a Samsung tv for the bedroom. I’m only buying a Samsung because of your app.
    Unfortunately they only sell J series in the stores here…
    So, my question is; Do you think that you will make it work on J series some time in the future, or should I look for a used Samsung tv from one of the supported series instead?
    All the best and thanks for a apparently great product! โ˜บ
    My e2 is vu+ duo2

  18. I installed this app on f6400 successfully.When I try to connect to my box, I get an http error code 500.I followed first screen instructions.What could I try?Tranks in advance.

  19. Hi

    Great app, but i have the as issue with the audio always choosing the NAR but not allowing me to change via the red button.

    Done the usual on the enigma 2 box which doesn’t select it.

    Any suggestions?



    1. This is an annoying issue โ€“ thereโ€™s no way to get a particular audio stream from E2 โ€“ all audio streams are there, but the TV canโ€™t detect them properly all the time. When it does, you can press โ€˜Aโ€™ to change the audio channel. Itโ€™s a TV software problem ultimately.

  20. Hello,
    I’ve bought a Samsung smart TV UE40J6275.
    Tried several ways to enter develop mode. It doesnโ€™t seem to support this.

    I know there are some other ways to install user apps by using a USB stick.

    Could you please provide some explanation to the installation of your app?

    I tried it on a older โ€œHโ€ model โ€“ and it works perfectly, but this is not the TV set Iโ€™ll use it on..
    Thanks for your quick reply

  25. Hi,Thank you very much for the nice app. I am able to use the app on my UNES series, which I brought from the US to Europe.

  28. Trying to install on JU6400 Series 6When trying to install E2stream on PC I can only get as far as connecting to TV and it just hangs on trying to connect to my IP address and can\’t go any further. Any help please.

  29. Hey pembo, what\’s the current state about using this app on J-series? Are there any real chances to get this app working on it, soon?

    1. Sorry – It’s pretty much a complete rewrite (thanks Samsung ๐Ÿ™ ). There is some ‘porting’ information but it’s sketchy at best, and I still don’t have a J-Series TV to test it on.

  30. Hi, and thanks.
    I have used E2stream for many years, wonderful, but my samsung es series tv decided that I had to reset everything..and so I did. I installed everything as a guide but right at the end, at the last step, at the time of download and installation of E2stream on smarthub, this message: “installation failed. for more information visit http://www.samsungdforum.com/support .. .
    What’s wrong?
    Can you help me?

  31. Hi Pembo,

    I installed your great app on my H-Series and it works great. I noticed a slight hitch which I wanted to run by you to see if I am not missing anything in my settings. I want to use an Ethernet cable between my TV and STB (to avoid contested WiFi channels) on same subnet instead of the WiFi. When I try running the app on my TV with active wired connection then I get warning box complaining about lack of Internet connection and the app does not starts. I have confirmed my (wired) network’s interface settings by browsing WEBIF on TV’s browser. I usually use phone’s hotspot to access Internet on STB, TV and other WiFi enabled devices. I am using v6.7 and I will be happy to screenshots/pictures (which you think are needed to help troubleshooting the issue) later when I get back to home.

    PS: I am not a power user when it comes to Smart TV but I wonder if there is some way to delete cache/application data in case the app is trying to access the IP associated with the wireless interface.

    Thanks and Best Regards,
