How about the fact the majority never had HDTV's until late 00s? Remember when nearly everyone was still watching SD CRT's in 2005... I remember 2008 kicking off with Sky HD and there were hardly any HD channels. Maybe 5 maximum.

It's a slightly weird feeling watching HD like it's been a long time then when you look back at the years, it hasn't been that long.

We should point out that the hoverboard video is a hoax.  I think it's some lead in to the next Back to the Future or something.  Looked very real and had me giddy for a minute though!

Came across something I just found out, sorry if it's only been posted here a 100 times :P

My TV only came with the smart remote. If I play video types such as .mkv and press
the pad, the rewind and fast forward functions are grayed out. What I have been doing
for these functions is to swipe the keypad while playing, which will move the video approx. 40 sec.
BUT I just found out if you press the search, then select "search by time", now you can
easily set, via a slider, how much forward or back you want to go ! ...now i'm really liking this TV smile.gif

Even better, don't use the smart remote.  The touch pad is way too sensitive, hate the pop up numbers on screen for channels.  

Mine sits in the box with all the other remotes I DO NOT USE  LOL

Question- Since my older pioneer elite AVR does not have ARC- How do i get the AVR to play sound from the APPS like Netflix- i assume I would have to use the Audio out from the 8000- Since I have about a 25" run from TV to AVR- Which should I use Optical or Coax- thanks

I may be wrong, but I believe the F8000s only have an optical audio output. Either way tho, that's the way to go.

At 19 it was my parent's Magnavox color console, only TV in the house, and yeah, maybe the faces were green, but that's a color! Then that draft notice arrived...in living color. Yet, I like you and most others consider those the good old days...and we could care less if they weren't really!

I'm a huge Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Eagles, Marvin Gaye, Beatles, David Bowie, Prince, Dire Straits, Lionel Richie, Kool and the Gang, Huey Lewis, The Who, Chicago, Rod Stewart, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Pink Floyd, Eric Clapton fan. I could go on. Guitar is another passion of mine and most of the great guitar work was done decades ago. Just cause we're young doesn't mean we don't appreciate the culture and art of past generations smile.gif

Hi Everyone,

By way of introduction I just got my 60 inch f8000 delivered yesterday. had a plasma for the last 5 years, was a great run but time to replace. I had purchased an F8500 plasma at the beginning of the year that was returned. The 60 inch F8500 picture was exceptional and I loved the TV. However, It buzzed even at distances of 8-10 feet. When I decided to choose the 60 inch F8000 I know there was a tradeoff. I was giving up picture quality for no buzzing etc. Best Buy did not have any replacement plasma's so I went with the LED. I tried eagle's calibration settings and Buzz's. Of course I know that no 2 tv's are alike and there a lot of variables and the bet way to optimize my settings is to get a custom calibration. However I noticed that on darker scenes on my TV the picture is kind of washed out or very hazy. I know that I'm not going to get the darker blacks on the LED but, Does anyone know what setting I can target to improve. Any other tidbits you can provide anew owner? I hope that I can change the settings and am willing to get a custom calibration because this TV picture quality doesn't come close the the F8500 I returned.

thanks and looking forward to a tv that does not buzz! even if it means giving up picture quality!

Putting your TV into Movie mode, lowering the "back light" setting, and enabling "smart LED" to standard or high all help with black levels in a dark room. I just installed a bias light and that helps as well.

The following assumes you're using either Standard or Movie mode (note that you can, and probably should, have different brightness/contrast settings for each of these modes). Take a look at the Picture menu advanced area - open "expert pattern" and activate the grayscale pattern. You'll see a series of squares at the top ranging from darkest to lightest, and there will be three vertical gray bars below those. Keeping the pattern on the screen, adjust the brightness setting under Picture until you can barely differentiate the darkest square/vertical bar from the background. You may need to cover the whiter area at the bottom of the pattern with your arm or something so you can clearly see the darker area. With that adjustment you should have a reasonably good black level set. Then adjust the contrast setting until the lightest white block is barely discernible against the white background. After doing that, close the expert pattern and go to Picture options, then Smart LED, and set to standard or high. Those adjustments should maximize black and white levels and maximize the TV's ability to adjust those dynamically depending on picture content. In general avoid really high backlight settings (over 10 or 12, unless you're trying to overcome a lot of ambient light), although I don't believe from my own observations that these have a significant impact on black level per se. I did notice that when I had a very high blue offset setting in white balance that it really blew out my blacks, and dropping that setting helped a lot to decrease side lighting artifacts in the black areas.

With regard to white balance, take a look at DRN94's posts on using the expert pattern grayscale to optimize white balance:
http://www.avsforum.com/t/1463286/official-samsung-unxxf8000-owners-thread/5580#post_24419846
http://www.avsforum.com/t/1463286/official-samsung-unxxf8000-owners-thread/5580#post_24419614
If you see a color cast (red, green, or blue) in any of the gray to white squares your white balance is off. If there's a color cast in the darker squares (left part of the scale), the RGB offset settings affect those, and if in the lighter squares, the RGB gain settings affect those.

Glad to hear u young 'ens are supporting the arts! All those u mentioned r big influences to me too. Now listen & emulate who influenced them like Elmore James, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Charley Patton, Bukka White, Lead Belly, Howlin Wolf, Albert King, Chet Atkins, Les Paul. Too many to name!!!

Hey everyone. Just an update. I received my new TV today. Everything looks good. No white line on the left hand side. This TV does exhibit some banding but I'm not going to worry about it. Its very minimal and looks the worst during hockey. Thanks to everyone and their help.

If DRN is REALLY 19 then perhaps he is the next Jonny Lang

 

"Jonny Lang is an American blues, gospel, and rock singer, songwriter, guitarist and recording artist. Lang's music is notable for both his unusual voice, which at 13 was compared to that of a 40-year-old blues veteran, and for his guitar solos."

 

But yes, Lefty, a great list of influential artists.

I'm a right handed player. I do try to focus on phrasing and articulation in my playing as well as good technique. If anyone's interested, here's a recording I improvised about a week ago: http://vocaroo.com/i/s18mxZjO53Ps

I've been going through a spacey ballad blues rock mood lately. I also like doing Jimi Hendrix like jams on my Fender Stat. Crank up the gain, turn on my wah pedal and just rip it. Gotta love jamming to Voodoo Child. Gotta just love playing the smooth cool blues every now and again though. I know this is a TV thread but guitar is a huge part of me. It's how I sing and express myself.

Glad to hear you got a good set. Apply the various settings (I am sure you have it memorized by now). .smile.gif
