Are 2016 Tiffin Phaeton TVs, "Smart TVs"?

I can't seem to find out from anyone if the TVs in the 2016 Tiffin Phaeton are one or all "Smart TVs".
I thought that I read in MotorHome magazine that the TVs were "Smart TVs", but I now can't find anything or anyone to validate it one way or the other.

My 2015 Allegro Red came with all 4 smart TV, so yours should also have all smart TV's, they almost use the same TV's for all coaches.

We have a 2016 Phaeton with 4 TVs. All are "smart", ie. have apps, can communicate via Wifi, etc.

hmmm... then we are not happy.

our 2016 Phaeton 40 QBH is in the build process right now in Red Bay...

Our TVs have just been put in BUT only the smallest TV is a Samsung SMART TV. The others are all LG.

I asked about it and got answers similar to "I don't know.."

Another issue we have to deal with.

So far we already have a short in the heated floor.

Since we waited many years for our coach, this is very disappointing considering we wanted a TIFFIN because of the quality.

LG makes smart TVs as well so maybe you have them.....
Better they find the short in the heated floor while in the factory than when you are on the road......

I wondered if they put the Samsung in the middle to keep the remote controls from interfering. I like it that way. Also like the LG models. Our QBH was built in August.

I ended up w/4 LG TV's.

The two larger ones in the bedroom and main cabin are smart (have a series of apps). For instance, they connect to my wifi and I've done netflix streaming.

The two smaller ones outside and front of coach, are not (or, I still haven't figured out how to get to that function).

I didn't even know what a smart TV was when I bought the coach.

Our 2016 Phaeton 40QBH has 3 LGs (Outside, Bedroom and Front). The midship TV is a Samsung. All are smart TVs. After understanding how they setup the remotes, I agree that they used a Samsung as a relatively inexpensive way to avoid remote interference between the two main cabin TVs.

****Correction to info about the SMART TVs in our new coach.
We checked with Tiffin and they checked out our coach and let us know that all 3 of our TVs are SMART. I guess we had just been given some incorrect info, so we are happy to hear that.
We are still "homeless" and so anxious for our coach to be finished and finally ours.
We are going to Red Bay for the final inspection there before it gets sent on to the dealer.
People at Tiffin have been great to us!!!! So excited!!

I wouldn't waste money buying a smart TV if i had a choice. Most smart TV's eat bandwidth and are very inefficient when it comes to streaming. I bet your Blu ray player already has smart capability and if not you can get one with WiFI and all the apps for $50-75 nowadays. The ROKU and the FIRE stick are both far more efficient at streaming content than any smart TV. I rarely use my smart TV at home because my play stations/xbox/fire stick are far better than the smart TV function.

ALL my LG and SONY TV's in my coach are "SMART" i don't even enable the function as the Blu-Ray players already have all the app and WiFi connection i need and are way faster and easier to set up.

just my 1/2 cents
