If you have other Samsung phones and Samsung TVs at your place, this app could pick up all the devices which could confuse you on which actual TV IP address you are trying to figure out. Hence, to filter it, all you need to do is right click the IP address then click open and do a ping test before and after turning on your TV. This would work as SONAR wherein it sends data packets to your devices. Hence, when your device is turned off, you will not get any ping replies.
