I picked up the Samsung UE40H5000 from John Lewis about 1 month ago and I’ve had nothing put problems trying to connect my HDMI cable.
The problem I’m having is with the HDMI1 source setting. When connected to the PS4 the screen will flicker ever 15-20s which makes it completely unusable. In the PS4 settings I’ve noticed that when 1080p is selected then the flickering is every 1s and the rest (1080i, 760, 460 etc) are every 15-20s.
I’ve gone through 3 HDMI cables costing £95 thinking it was something wrong in that aspect and then I’ve tried 4 other laptops which still highlight the problem and my final resort is to get some help in the forum before sending it back to the company I bought it from.
All I wanted was a TV to watch some Netflix on with my flatmates and have a few beers with the PS4 but it has turned into a complete nightmare! and it’s absolutely unusable at the minute.
