Hey, don't short change Grandma!!! If anyone knows the changes on your picture, it's her!!!

Which reminds me of a great cartoon I have to share. Picture a sweet looking, gentle grandmother figure, sitting in front of the TV, placidly watching her favorite soap opera. The caption underneath said, "Oh Linda, don't put your trust in that backstabbing motherf$%^&*!

Priceless.

Anthony, Garnoch and all the 8000 bro's... You all know I got my set in June with FW 1013.2 and stayed firm in not updating. I was 100% satisfied and loved my settings. Tolerated the minor flashlighting, but had no V issue or clouding to speak of. Well, the worm has turned.

1046.2 is the T*Ts!!!!...The bomb!...."its where the party's at"

I use hdmi direct to tv for bluray, fios and hdvdvd source. Optical out to my soundbar. Test material on bluray was Lawrence of Arabia, Revenge of the Sith, Fifth Element and Casablanca. Fios was CNN and a boatload of channel surfing. Results....Call me crazy but I'm with you guys!!!

-ZERO flashlighting...zero, nada, NONE!
-Blacker blacks in source material as well as letter box bars...I'm convinced this unit is WAY more software based and I'll side with people who think Cinema Black may have been switched on.
-Deeper better colors, especially in detail of red, orange and fuscia garments....OMG...
-CE dimming, much more tamed as I am at 45 brightness and the stars stay pretty bright as credits dissapear in StarWars

I'm rolling in Standard Mode. all 3 hdmi sources individually got the "reset" before tweak city.
-11 for Backlight althiugh this may be dialed vack to 10 cuz panel seems brighter now...
-97 Contrast
-45 Brightness
-12-15 for Sharpness although needs observation since the update really sharpened up an already sharp image...wow
-50 Color...amazing and may need to dial back to 48 or 49 after I finish my acid trip with the Sammy
-Dynamic Con, Black tone, Flesh tone, OFF
-Native Color space...love this
-OFF for gamma
-Motion Light ON
-Color Tone is Warm1 but Standard is much richer now as well and it wouldnt surpise me if i switch back and forth...white does look white on my Warm1 when looking at white "BMW's and Benz's" smile.gif or white business shirts on CNN and football jersey's
-AMP is on...game effing on babay however, clear is a 2nd choice
-LED Motion OFF

LOVE THIS UPDATE, loved my TV before it, loving it even more after the FW update to 1046.2. Yes, all...the ".2" will show when you check the "Connect with Samsung" window.

Anthony...you called this one spot on!!!


So so so so disappointed. How could you?
tongue.gif
Congrats, my man! I can tell though settings should look nice too. I had to back down on Color too to like 48 or 49 for Standard, so I know what you're saying.

Via phone here Anthony; I forgot to mention that I truly have better more detailed audio going to my soundbar. Heard things in a scene from Lawrence of Arabia that I never heard....and I have watched that movie embarrassingly too many times.

3d; not tested and can't wait cuz that's where flashlight was more of an issue.

Yup, I have again shut my 8000 off from the outside world until I have proof that a new FW actually sprays pixie dust on my family jewels.

....oh, this is definitely the FW that CNET , Hometheater and all others should judge the 8000 on. Its very.....hummmm, what's the word....Elite ish now.

I'm so OCD that I thought if I keep it off, it would prolong its lifespan. But once it was off, I couldn't tell if the TV was on or off for the life of me, so now I just keep the logo on while the TVs off so I know its off.

Hey, I added my cars to my pictures. Just click on my avatar. You can add any pics you want on yours too. I'm curious to see your CLS. Did you do trick it out at all? Tricking out cars is my number one hobby. Cars period actually. Even my grandmother loves sport cars with tinted windows and chrome wheels..lol
On my CLS just K&N air filters,wheels,front grille and rear lip spoiler.BMW 100 hp chip dual ait filters new wheels rear lip spoiler.More to come just got to put money on other things now.Wife talking about new home.Oh geez.I checked out your cars Sweeeet cars.Where do you live so I can come visit.LOL

So where are we with these settings dudes: Motion Lighting and LED Motion? I haven't tried either one but I'm hearing good things from Anthony on the latter (with Eco Sensor off?). I'm unsure as to what these are supposed to do (I won't bother consulting Samsung lol). I never dicked around with AMP but it can't hurt to try. Is that one mainly used for fast moving scenes where they pan quickly? As an aside I find it somewhat disconcerting that one person's TV got "fixed" by the tech loosening some screws in the back and someone else made his "V" go away using a screwdriver.

I have Eco sensor off, Motion Light on. I have never seen such darkly detailed space scenes before...and that goes for old 35" Sony XBR cry... This 8000 is so killer now....still but even more killer is the way to say it.

your setup is almost identical to mine, and you are seeing the same results that I, and many others saw with this latest update. It really is an incredible change. I don't really understand how, but the Flash-lighting and precious little "v" that I had come to love have magically disappeared.

It really makes me wonder what else could be affected by future FW updates, the EVO kit, etc. because you could not have convinced me prior to this that a FW update would do anything to reduce the flashlight effect.

I am so glad I was wrong.

This was the reason he loosened it.
Not sure if that is sarcasm or not, all I know is it made a difference for me.
i don't know about everyone out there, but i find hockey way better on LED than plasma. the auto dimming on plasma kills it for me and i don't see any banding on my set.

I wish you had gotten a pic of what exactly he loosened. Was it just one bolt, or more than one?

Interesting, then it appears you, 7011 and Anthony have Eco off and Motion Lighting on. I need to test ML now out of curiosity. (still loving the update)

never knew your banding on the 65" was that obvious, i can just imagine how it'll look in those panning shots. when i put on that test picture, it looks like there is no bands at all, but i know there's one exceptional band on the right side, and i tend to look at it during solid backgrounds and panning shots too. the bands are embedded in my head now, and it's rather hard to not pay attention to it. this is the reason why i have never asked anyone about the "v" either, cuz i know if i find it-it'll always be in my head.

LOL! How can you short change "Grandma Worbucks" (jk) when she pimps this around? Oh, and those freaking soaps! Fugetaboutit! I can't stand them! Her eyes are glued all day long to them..lol! She honestly saw the difference in picture quality before I even did. She's also getting pulled over all the time for speeding. My whole family gets a big kick out of it..lol!

Yea, My banding sucks. Samsung was going to replace it, and i was going to pay the difference for the 75" ES9000 but he told me that the 9000 has the same exact panel as the 65" so I just decided to keep it for now and maybe get a new F8000 for that room if they have no banding. I only use that room when i have company over. I could have had them replace it, and I asked him what my options would be if the replacement had banding also, and he said I can always have a refund, so I just decided to not even do anything and just deal with it. I replace Tvs so often that it's not a big deal to me really.

Oh, now your going to TRY it? You couldn't just try it when I first told you about it? LOL! it's a simple setting to turn on and off eek.gif I really think the Eco sensor is not working like it used to anymore and messing things up, because ever since I've been using the "Motion Lighting" its been amazing. I figured it's there for a reason so why not try it? Im glad I did though otherwise I wouldn't have known what I've been missing. Thats what I mean about people needing to try all different ways here because every room has different lighting and every panel is different, so people can't just go and use someone else's settings right off the bat and just say"Ok, I can sit back now and never touch the settings again" and never try other options, because you may not be getting the best out the TV

Do you adjust the backlight to compensate for the dimmer screen?

I can't speak to how the ECO Sensor worked before 1046, as I didn't try it until updating to 1046. However, the ECO Sensor seems to be working very well for me.

What can I said, I trust 7011 and Blade. tongue.gif
Its just hard to believe that would be the thing effecting it - based on the description. I had tried it in the past with no obvious effect. Now I should say though, that before the update I had basically zero flashlighting in Standard anyway, and after this update, I'm getting almost the same effect in Movie mode for the first time. My most notable changes were what I just mentioned in Movie mode and the fact that satellite TV looks much closer to Blu-ray than before. That previous update really made satellite TV look more compressed to me and now it's looking great again. Yes yes yes, I'll try it though. smile.gif

You can. Whatever you feel is bright enough. I have my 60" at backlight 12 and my 65" at 14 depending on now bright your room is I guess.
