See if there is an app available? maybe?

Thanks for the reply. I did eventually get it to work. It was kinda strange.. I had been trying the Browser using a mouse and a USB keyboard, and after a dozen tries still couldn't log in to my Charter account to enable ESPN3 streaming to the TV. After seeing your reply I decided to try once more using the freakin' remote. IT WORKED!!! I don't know what the issue was with the keyboard.. maybe something with the Caps in my charter password? Maybe the Capslock key on the keyboard wasn't feeding the caps properly to the browser... I dunno . . . confused.gif

Don't ever make the MISTAKE of buying a Samsung TV..

Granted, seeing it from the center is much much much better but to be honest, I don't see any issues from seeing it at this angle.



I'm not ashamed to say it...but........that, show, is, HILARIOUS! Lol!!!!

ok, here is an angle pic of my screen taken from the left side of the tv when facing it with all the lights off in the house and the oppo main screen up.



Looks good to me but of course I would not see it from an angle point of view! smile.gif (obviously hard to distinguish things on the far right side of the tv).

I don't watch TV during the day and when I do watch TV, it is in the evening hours with all the lights turned off. House is pitch dark except for the light coming from the TV of course! smile.gif

All that is available locally is is TH02. Can't find TS01 for exchange so I guess I'll try out the TH02, dunces resources seem to indicate its a Samsung

Anyone have a TH02 f8000 that can confirm?

Thanks.

The shipping carton for the 65" that I received Friday from Amazon has "TS01" printed on the sticker. Someone had mentioned manufacturing dates, but I haven't found that printed anywhere . . .

The pictures I posted earlier are of a TS01 panel. Personally, I wouldn't be to concerned about that.

Samsung-Made Panels are ideal. I'd be concerned if I got an outsourced panel.

I'm sure a few have. Samsung uses Sharp Panels in all of their larger sets, (70" +). Have you seen the differences between Samsung-Made Panels and Non?

The TH01-02 is a Samsung-Made Panel btw. The Hxxx Panels are Sharp and CHxx Panels are the least desirable.

No they don't. Their 75" sets use Samsung S-PVA panels.

Well, Sharp doesn't make 75" panels, so Samsung couldn't possibly be using them regardless of year. Every 75" Samsung I've ever seen has a S-PVA panel, but I've only seen a very small subset of what's out there.

Most Samsung 60"-70" TVs, before this year, didn't have Samsung Panels in them. A lot of them were Sharp.

My mistake on the 70"+ Sharp Panel comment.

My point, it's better to have a Samsung Panel than a Non-Samsung Panel.

Pretty much anyone who bought a 65" F8000. All the ones I've seen in stores use non-Samsung panels.

You could be right on the first part. Not sure about the 2nd part. For example, Sharp doesn't make 65" panels. So a 65" Samsung couldn't have a Sharp panel, but there are other people making 65" panels Samsung is buying. A 60" could be a Sharp, but Samsung hasn't made a lot of 60" TVs in the past. That's only in the last year or two.

I'd definitely agree with that.

All this panel talk is very interesting but I have no way of knowing if my 75 inch US02 F8000 model is using a Samsung panel or a Sharp panel or someone else's panel. So far, I am very happy with it. smile.gif

Thank you for the info. I'm exchanging a ts01 that I have an issue with for a TH02 that was manufactured 03/31/14. Since it's a Samsung S-pva panel I'm hoping/expecting similar performance as the ts01

My 65 has a US02 panel and like you, I'm extremely pleased.
Just out of curiosity, I followed a link from the panel version thread; it states the us02 panel is an Samsung S-PVA panel.
I believe there is way too much myth and disinformation regarding good and bad panel versions. I would be willing to bet that the ratio of good to bad panels is fairly even across all versions.

PS3 connection issues.

So I experienced the issue with the PS3 not being recognized on the 65F8000.
Started up the TV and booted the PS3, which has been working great since I got the TV and got the message about it not being connected. I tried powering the PS3 off, then the TV in various sequences to no avail. The funny thing is, that the connection in the source connection icon list was not greyed out, so the TV was seeing the PS3 it just wouldn't switch and threw the error.

The PS4 worked fine via HDMI 1.

I powered the TV off at the "source" (the power strip) and then rebooted the TV and the PS3. Then after a couple tried it seems to be working again.
I have read some reports of this HDMI handshaking problem, has anyone else here encountered it, and is this addressed in a firmware update?

It seem just like yesterday I was reading a similar thread regarding the panels used for the new ( 1st Gen. ) MacBook Pro Retina display.

Some had LG`s and some had Samsung , the LG`s have a problem with temporary image retention if you use the display to bright.

I have a MBP-R and it does have an LG display and at times I too notice slight image retention , but that is the one thing I don`t lose sleep over !!

It`s technology , it`s evolving , it`s a live !! LOL

What is broke today might be fixed tomorrow , but what is busted yesterday will never be fixed , I is now out of date !

Later smile.gif
