Sorry, i was not clear. The power led is not blinking, The power led turns red and the output leds are flickering green. I tried both the wall cube and the USB connector, both with the same result. I tried other HDMI cables, used the splitter to connect another device (PlayStation) on another TV without any result. No signal to the TV's.
Hi! Jumping on this thread: Just got the Samsung TV with the mini connect box. When I first installed everything, it worked beautifully! Now, however, the TV won't recognize the video source plugged in through the DreamScreen. I get a "check video source" error message. When I switch the video source to plug directly to the Samsung mini connect box, the TV recognized the video source perfectly. Then, I switch back to plugging the video source through the DreamScreen, and again get the same error message to check my video source. Now, I have to switch between plugging the source directly to the TV, then back to plugging through the DreamScreen. I also have to try a combination of unplugging the power to the DreamScreen (as a reset of sorts, I guess). Then, it's a matter of luck and at some point, things work again. But sometimes, although the video source signal goes through the DreamScreen, only the LED lights at the bottom of the TV lights up. So, it's very strange and inconsistent. Would greatly appreciate any suggestions for a fix. Thanks so much!
1) Make sure the Splitter AND the Stick are both plugged into power. If you are powering the Splitter with a USB port on the TV, try using the wall adapter provided. 2) Make sure your video devices (including AV receivers) are manually set to output at 1080P instead of “Auto”. 3) Try swapping out the HDMI cables for different ones (including the one we provided)
Thanks! I've always plugged in the power source for the splitter, confirmed that the cable box was already set to output at 1080p, and got some new HDMI cables. Performance is still spotty: Sometimes it works and sometimes not (same error with not recognizing the video source). Now, another problem I'm having is that even when the video works and the backlight responds, the sound does not come through. What else should I try? Thanks!
No, DreamScreen works with the OneConnect box. You would need to plug your video sources into DreamScreen and then have the output of the DreamScreen wired to the OneConnect box. OneConnect stays connected to the TV as normal.

I think it would be worth clarifying here, as a Samsung TV Owner (who doesn't use the built in Applications on the TV)
Yes, the DreamScreen DOES work with the Samsung One Connect Boxes and HDMI sources. However, I believe that the DreamScreen DOES NOT work with the TV's various built in Applications or built in Over The Air TV Tuner. (my TV is not connected to the internet and I don't utilize any services with applications so I'm not able to test for you. I believe that DreamScreen will only work with external HDMI sources connected to the One Connect Box. At this point in time, DreamScreen has no way to interface with the many different TV manufacturers built in "Smart TV Applications", if you will)
Plex can operate on many external HDMI sources, such as Roku, Playstation, Xbox, etc. While this may not be as convenient as using the TV itself it is a work around.
IT Seems like a great product, but if I read this it is not really compatible with the Samsung one connect box. Your system is build on the “normal old way” where HDMI is directly connected to the screen, and works both ways (input/output) so the splitter can fake it is DVR, or screen, or a other device that will reseive the signal the screen is showing. Perfect system, but not with a one connect box, why? Because the screen only has 1 connection, and that is the special glass connector from the One connect to the screen, the one connect HDMI are only input, not output. The screen sharing option for PC or mobile device (HDMI and WiFi) are also input. So as far as I can see, and I read the answers above, it only works, if you put the Dreamscreen splitter between 1 of the external sources (cable setup box) and the One connect box, and the colors will work if you use this device. But if I stream, or use game console, or (and this is where the One connect is made for) The one connect is the cable receiver (it has 3 tuners) and it screens Netflix and other movie apps. The system will not work. For me, and most people that use the one connect box how Samsung made it, it will not work, than I have to buy a setup box, or a PC, and this should have extra inputs and apps so i can bypass the One connect than it will work. Problem:
1. Many cables, and extra boxes under the Screen (so the One connect function useless) 2. Have to Buy setup box, and chrome cast (or something like this) to make the lights work.
Then i think it is cheaper (and less hassle to buy the Philips Ambilight TV
Solution could perhaps be, to make a wireless connection with the Samsung one connect box (they have other apps and options) and make it work like this.
Perhaps, you have a solution in the past 2 years and my message is already obsolete (I do hope so)
