Well the exact same thing happened to me. I called samsung and also had to reset my TV to get out of Dynamic Mode. Well the TV (after re-programming all day yesterday) looks really great. The update really did improve my picture quality. I think update 1022 screwed the picture quality up a bunch. Only problem I now have (never had it before) is that viewing 1080P @60 FPS I get intermintent picture breakup with vertical jitter as well. I own 2 panasonic blu-ray players that both now exhibit the issue. The good news is that my player lets me view DVD's @ 24 FPS as well as all blu-rays playing at that frame rate. The problem totally disapears when viewing at 24 FPS so I can totally live with the new issue for now. My TV CAL disk runs @ 60FPS and that's when I discovered the problem. I called Samsung support and was told not to do updates unless there is an issue. They couldn't care less if their update site indicates that updates can add new features or correct issues that haven't been discovered yet. They are TOTALLY uneducated in what updates are for and do agree that very poor discriptions about the update are provided. It is very OBVIOUS that their Firmware Engineers are weak at best. I used to be a Test Engineer working for Litton and am very aware on what updates can do if not properly tested first. All weak engineers just fix the issue they ary trying to correct. They don't realize that one simple change can cause other issues. So in the world of software/firmware fix's it requires the engineer to go back and re-test EVERYTHING related to the entire package of the new release. Yeph it costs time and money but if done properly, in the long run, you get a much better quality product without pissing off your customers along the way. In the last two weeks, I have returned two UN40ES6500's (one for poor picture quality). I now have to believe that update 1023 as horrible as it is, it is a step back in the right direction of a better overall picture. I have opened up a case for the 1080P 60HZ issue and should be getting a call by this Tuesday from a Product Specialist. I am glad to see it not just my TV having this new issue as EAnglum is also having 1080P issues. For anybody else with this issue, if you can switch to 24FPS, the problem will disappear most likely since it works for me. For all others, AVOID Versions 1022 and 1023 for now. I will report new information as I get after my call next week from Samsung. Regards to all of the 7000 series owners.
