No sound when streaming amazon thru external speakers, stand doesn't swivel

Summary: Picture quality very good. I personally am not interested in features like gesture control. I want a great picture. I also want to stream Netflix and Amazon. I have my TV connected to external speakers. The only app I get sound from is Pandora but not Amazon or Netflix. However if I stream thru my Sony blu ray player I do get sound. So this is obviously a Samsung issue.
Summary: Amazon delivered my UN60ES8000 at 10:30 AM Friday, July 27, 2012. The two Pilot Freight Services reps had it out of the box sitting on its pre-installed floor stand and operating acceptably within 10 minutes. Getting my components plugged in and operating well together took another half-day or so.
Summary: EDIT #2: I've not had any additional problems with the SmartHub network identified in Edit #1. As such I'm pushing this back to three stars and will probably call it good as Samsung has moved on to a new line of 2013 TV's anyway. EDIT #1: I'm adjusting my rating down to 1 star from 4 due to the simple fact Samsung insists on linking their SmartHub network operations to all my TV watching options.
