ARC from this TV to AVRs is a little wonky

What did you do to remedy the problem while still being able to send audio to the receiver from the TV for use with the smart hub apps? Maybe it will work for me too....

Sorry, dude. I didn't figure out a way. I gave up on Marantz HDMI ARC. That does mean I have lost getting the app audio going through the speakers.


But,
1) Skype on this TV doesn't work with ARC even if you have set up. It always defaults to the TV speakers anyway.


2) Most of what you see on Youtube is not 5.1 anyway, so the TV speakers are fine for that.


3) The TV's speakers are actually pretty good.


4) If you use Airplay and an iPhone with the Marantz, or the Marantz internet radio, you don't need any music apps from the TV.


5) The only thing you are really missing I guess is streaming movies from the TV's apps. But cable boxes, BD players, and game consoles all have these apps now also. Just use those. I do.


Hope that helps. Does seem like receivers are a little wonky on ARC. Hmmm.

And whats the input lag like, Is it double that of the latest curved model?. Any advice would be very helpful because I really want this tv for gaming but I'm scared to pay for a used tv. The PQ & sound is supposed be great apparently.

Game Mode on this TV is excellent. Lag is minimal; just be sure to bypass an AVR and connect your game box directly to the TV

Does anyone know 1203 adds/fixes? I can't tell.

wts an AVR exactly?. I've just returned the Samsung 6400 because the PQ didnt look truly 'HD' to me, it looked average. Thats y I'm apprehensive because its the same brand but this 1s high end so should be quality. I heard it has a stunning picture like the W9

The 6400 you returned more than likely had a non - Sammy panel in it. The 8000 will blow it away.

Thanks for the reply. I guess I'll just deal with it. A firmware update could so easily fix this problem I really wish they would take care of it.

Seriously? Bastards!.No wonder the ps4 looked average on it. How can u tell if a tv has the right panel?. It was from pixmania, I couldn't return it & eventually had to sell it for a £300 loss. Didn't even support freeview hd in uk.

Question for owners in this thread, that might have an idea about this...currently i own a UN75H7150 in my living room, and a UN65HU9000 in the bedroom! I have a chance to get a brand new 75" F8000 for $2700 today only! It's the tv i always wanted to get, but i couldn't get one locally, hate buying TV's online! It's a local sale, and TV is brand new in the box as well.

Now i won't be able to exchange this set, because it's the last one seller has! I had to exchange my UN7150 four times before i was kind of okay with keeping it, and UN9000 was perfect out of the box 1st time, only wish it was 10" bigger! I am not looking for perfection, but don't know if the set is gonna have flashlighting/clouding or maybe even a dead pixel/pixels? I can't return the TV either.

What would you do if you were me???

If the seller isn't an authorized retailer, I wouldn't do it. If the tv goes out in 2 weeks, Samsung probably won't warranty it if not sold by an authorized retailer.

AVR = audio/video receiver


What I would do is connect your game console's HDMI to the TV, and the game console's digital optical to and AVR. If you run the HDMI to your AVR, you might get input lag. This is what I do.


If you do that, and turn on Game Mode in this TV, that's a great set-up for twitch games like COD.

They just updated the firmware for this TV to 1203. Maybe that fixes it. Try it and tell me; maybe you'll luck out.


CEC and ARC are still too new as technologies I think. Devices don't handshake so well yet with them. Give it a few years I guess...

measured 1.5" between the table and the tv. It will be pretty tight for your 1.5" router. The back is black plastic, not metal.

As long as the AVR isn't doing any image enhancement or upscaling it won't introduce any input lag.

Where can I get the F8000 from 'caus the market keeps changing. 1 day its in stock the next it isn't. The H8000 would be perfect if it didnt have that stupid curved design. I'm tryna get the F8 with a gd warranty but its like finding a needle in a haystack.

I got mine (last week) at The High Definition Store. It's an authorized retailer and they still had a few in stock. I'd email them and see if they have the size you want. Good luck!

It's a new one, but I couldn't find it without emailing their contact us link.

Also, I got a SquareTrade warranty from Costco to cover me for 5 years, since I got it from an authorized retailer.

The warranty's not that expensive at Costco; much cheaper than most other retailers. Well worth it if you have a failure. I don't know how common they are, but to me it's worth the piece of mind, especially because the TV is last year's model.
