Sorry for this long post, but I have to cover everything.
I did a search for the topic and came across three other threads with a similar problem;http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...ighlight=greenhttp://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...ighlight=green
and this which seemed the closest;http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...ighlight=green
I orginally thought it wasn't
a set issue, but a program issue and started this thread, but no one else reported seeing anything as this;http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=912626
Which brings me back here.
After spending alot of time with this issue since it seems to be getting worse (and I'm not that anal about color perfection as many others here), this is my take on it;
1. First, it is mostly noticeable on network HD programs,
2. I rarely see it with DVDs',
3. I don't see it with analog CCTV cameras (really not a good test),
4. I see it via the internal tuner and
the external DVR through a HDMI input,
5. I don't see it with a PC through the other HDMI input,
6. Looking at a grey scale through a component input from a Signal Generator, there is only a slight trace of green at the 2nd or 3rd step from black (color at '0'),
7. I do see it with typical noisey cable signals and film content, but that varies to much to mean anything.
What I have done;
1. I reduced what appears to be the equilivent of a 'green bias' (in CRT terminology) a couple of notches, but that only seemed to affect the low levels of a grey scale, not the green encoder channel.
2. The 'DLP engine' was replaced, but it seems to be either the same, or possible worse
(maybe because I'm looking for it even more).
3. A full reset has been done, but that made no difference as I didn't expect it would.
I can only assume it is a low light, low level green push issue with the color decoded. Why it doesn't affect all program material I don't know. Some programs seem to be immune to it. Where it does become worse are indoor shots with floresenct lighting (office enviroments). What would be a very minor blue/green tint is major here. Hence the term 'push'.
I took some screen shots, but they didn't turn out as expected as the problem didn't really show up as expected. It's much worse that this.
Notice the sideburns and eyebrows where it is usually noticeable.
NO, it's not the lighting, as this is typical with most affected programs/scenes.This isn't confined to just Samsung.
