    Help With TV Connection Name

    Anyone know what kind of connection this is (sorry for the poor quality).

    It says its a LAN connection but a standard CAT 5 cable won't fit, i'm guessing you need an adapter or something but what kind

    It's a Samsung UE40C8000XK

    On page 28 of this owner's manual: http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/co...01Eng-0402.pdf
    There's a LAN adapter shown that's supposed to have come with the TV.

    On page 4 of that same manual, it says that the LAN adapter should be included with the TV.

    Hi there

    Thanks for the info --remind me NOT to get a Samsung TV -- what's wrong with a STANDARD LAN connector -- my Panasonic has one AND internal WIFI. Why on earth is Sansung using that type of adapter and not a standard LAN socket.

    I think companies should be BARRED from making all these stupid type of connectors --unless there's a reason for it -- and as current LAN can work at speeds of far faster than any ISP is capable of delivering there's 100% no need to change the standard yet.!

    What on earth was Samsung doing. I've no objection to the Mini-HDMI connector as per Surface 3 pro - simply because the device is smaller and needs a smaller space --but a decently sized TV having problems with standard LAN !!!!!!

    Cheers for all the replies.

    @jimbo45 i think this connection was required due to how thin the TV is (in fairness to Samsung, the cable does come supplied).

    The main reason for looking it up was because a friend has inherited this TV and hasn't got that adapter so needed to find out what he needed really.
