I have the Costco 60 inch 6350 and have no picture quality issues for off viewing. Couldn't be happier with this TV.


No memory upgrade is possible unless you move up to ES7500 and ES8000 LED and E7000 (no SI) and E8000 PDP models for use with your existing TV

Picked up the UN40F6300FXZA a few weeks ago and have been very happy . . . until a few days ago when I found my IR extender cable chewed up by my over-rambunctious little pup. I've not been able locate a source for a replacement, except a UK listing on EBay. Nothing against you Brits, but I'd rather not deal with an international transaction. wink.gif

Anyone know of a US source or a compatible replacement? The part number from a tag on the cord is BN96-26652A.

Quick question: I was wondering what was the point of the IR extender.... I use a universal remote (Harmony One) to control my TV, STB, Receiver, etc., so my universal remote changes stations directly with the STB.... why would I want to send the channel change signal to the STB via the TV, when all I get is a lag?

Is the IR extender included with the TV so we can keep on using the TV's remote (to retain full functionality of the 'smart TV' features)? If that's the case, I can just as easily program my universal remote with the important functions for the Hub and the such, and forego the IR extender...

Or is the IR extender offered for those without a universal remote, that don't want to have 2 remotes (TV & STB)?

Am I missing anything here?

My understanding is I will be able to control the TV and my Comcast STB (I don't have a Universal Remote). I hadn't configured yet and just had the cable sitting on the shelf in front of the TV. My cat and dog tag-teamed to knock it off the self, then play/chew it up to oblivion. lol

anyone else have drifting lipsync issues using the built-in Smart TV netflix client? the sync is definitely off, and seems to get better and worse over the course of a show. this is true whether using ARC or optical audio feed to the receiver.

additionally, the lipsync adjustment on my yamaha rx-v375 only offers "manual" (no automatic) lipsync adjustment, and the manual adjustment does nothing at all, across its entire range (0ms to over 100ms).

the TV is a UN46F6300.

Hi, all. New owner here.

Picked up a 65" at Costco last week, replaced my old "now appears tiny in my living room, and no longer too big in my bedroom" 46". I'm pretty happy with the purchase. My old set is about 6 years old, and the technology has come a long way.

In any case, the TV came with the 1110 firmware installed. I see that the firmware version listed on the Samsung support site is 1110.1. Is there a difference between the two? No firmware available via TV's wifi update. For sh**s and giggles I tried to upgrade through USB, and it said there was no valid firmware on the USB stick.

I am in my return window for a Vizio e601 and decided to try out the 60F6300. It arrived yesterday from amazon but it has some noticeable clouding. There are 6 large bright spots even with the backlight down to 8. Is this something that will disappear over time? Or is it a defective unit? Also the corners seem to be darker on a white screen. I am using the settings from lcdbuyingguide.

I'd exchange it until you get a good set.

FYI: The UN60F6350 draws 74 watts using my Kill-O-Watt meter with the built in speakers with volume at "20". Sticker on back states 70w is normal.

yeah, it definitely seems to be content-specific. some netflix shows do it, others don't. the one or two amazon shows i tried (i don't use it regularly) were fine.

any idea how one reports problems against the Smart TV clients? do the reports to go Netflix? to Samsung?

Hello fellow avs
we just got a UN60F6300xx last saturday and using default settings, the SOE is driving the wifey nuts. we are used to watching film on the Plasmas but we needed a larger set for the living room where there is just too much light. the F60xx does it job very well in terms of light output and clarity
except for SOE. what settings do i need to adjust, that i am new to samsung LED.
thanks

Picked up a UN60F6400 from Amazon last week. Had a 2 year old LG and so far not impressed with this thing. Had a few other Samsungs and this thing has terrible views from the side. the way my room is configured it sits above a fireplace and most of the seating is from the side angles. From the dead front it looks pretty good. Used some calibration settings to tweak the settings and picture is good, just side angle viewing is white washed out..

This typical of the newer LED panels?

I purchased the 32F6300 on Sunday. In general the picture is great; uniform backlight, blacks are black, and colors seem accurate enough. However, motion is very poor. The picture stutters a lot. This occurs with all settings of AMP including off. I ran the Spears & Munsil Blu-ray calibration disk and only AMP on smooth was able to handle the motion tests at all. In real world content this produced the soap opera effect and still stuttered. It came with firmware version 1105 so I'll check if the latest firmware improves anything. If not I'll return it.

I just downloaded firmware ver 1111. Does anyone have any info?
DMiZ's Avatar DMiZ 11:56 AM 08-30-2013
I received the F6300 last weekend and I'm experiencing the issue where the TV turns off and then on by itself (power cycle). It did it about 20 times in a half hour. I've searched all over and read a bunch of thoughts on some of the other model F's but I guess I'm looking for a concrete decision on what to do. I don't want to return/exchange it for another if the new one is going to do the same or I may get some other issue.

I downloaded the newest firmware last night, but haven't had the chance to test it yet. Does anyone know if they fixed this issue or something I can do to fix it? I'm not seeing much of an update on this problem in other threads.

Thanks in advance!

Signed,

A sad sad new TV owner

Camera for wall mounted TV.

When I mounted the TV on a slim mount, i didn't realize the camera would be able to be aimed. Are there any options here to use the existing camera? If not, how do I connect an external camera and get the tv to recognize it. Thanks in advance

I just picked a 55" up yesterday at Costco with the Samsung pane, TH01.

I replaced out 55" GT30 in our bedroom with it. We wanted to get rid of clutter, Dune HD Box, Apple TV, etc and go with a smart TV.

PQ was not my main concern, its a bedroom TV and most of the content we watch is streamed anyways but I did not expect such a dramatic drop.

Hard to go from the very natural and smooth plasma to LED. I played around with the sittings and got it to be more watchable.

The netflix client compared to the Apple TV is not nearly as good PQ wise nor the interface. The Apple TV shifts resolutions based on connection on the fly, the Samsung app stops, buffers, and goes. It takes forever to buffer and I have a 100mbps connection at home.

We have a lot of content in MP4 and seemed to be no list view in the DLNA client, only those big tiles which makes it difficult to sort/find. Plex was quite a bit better but again the PQ just did not seem as good as the Dune HD.

This is not a TV PQ issue. DirecTV looked fine. Netflix via the Apple TV was superior compared to the built in client, any of our content via the Dune HD was superior compared to the built in smart apps.

Looks nice on the wall and it was 1/2 the weight of the plasma.

We really wanted to eliminate all the clutter under the TV but does not seem like that is going to work. Probably going to take it back this week.

The firmware update improved the sometimes jittery picture but the stuttering remained so I returned the set. I'll try a different brand/model.

Cannot get the Samsung Universal Remote to work with my DiSH VIP222k using the IR extender. Model number comes up and I select it but the channel change on the Samsung remote does nothing. I've tried selecting different DiSH model numbers but nothing. Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong or how to troubleshoot it? Thank you.

Thought I'd share some images of the clouding / uneven back light on a UN65F6300 I recently purchased and returned. These photos are exaggerated because they were taken with a black screen in complete darkness using a tripod/long exposure, but you get the idea:

http://imgur.com/a/6kJIq

Top image is backlight set to 8
Middle image is the dynamic setting
Bottom image is the standard setting

From my research I found differing opinions on uneven back lighting / clouding. It was hard to determine if what I had was within an acceptable range. The first samsung support person I spoke with wouldn't give me a straight answer. The second person told me that what I had was pretty unusual and it was a defective panel which allowed for me to do a return. I didn't want to risk getting another Samsung/LED and having to deal with the same problem all over again. Opted for a Panasonic S60 (saved $300) and the picture is much better.

Newbie here looking for some advice. I have a bit of a challenge with my install, partly due to the downward facing speakers. Is there an audio output that I can use to connect some external speakers that use the internal 10W X2 amplifier? I'm looking for some installation flexibility while getting a modest audio quality improvement at the same time. Any help is much appreciated.

On the issue of who makes Samsung panels -- I am looking at the white sticker on the side of the box for the 6360AF bought from Costco about two weeks ago and there is absolutely no "version number" or any designation resembling any of the ramblings on here about panel manufacturer. Further, I dont even see (on here) any speculations regarding quality from one manufacturer to another. So can we be a little more specific. And can we be clearer about what the actual recommendations are regarding panel maker?

Sorry, but its rediculous to wade thru a bunch verbage and still come out with the same questions...
