The TV does the upscaling automatically. There is no way to turn it on or off.

So how can you tell if it's the TV or your blu ray player doing the upscaling? Just curious, and thanks for the info!

If you have a 4k upscaling bluray player and you turn on the Upscaling feature it sends over a 4k signal and your TV will show the resolution as 4k and do no upscaling. If you do not use the upscaling feature on your bluray player then the TV will show the source it is receiving as 1080p/24p or whatever your bluray player is sending and then it upscales it to 4k. It has been confusing people because when you hit Info on the Samsung to find out what resolution it is, it only shows you the sources resolution and not the current resolution it is playing at.

None here either and I haven't read any posts that I can remember talking about any color banding, let alone "bad".

Not on mine. The silver bezel is recessed towards the back of the TV by about 1mm, maybe less.

Hi all. I'm trying to figure out how I would physically set up the F9000 into my home theater system. I have a Denon AVR-1913 receiver with all of my peripheral devices hooked into it. Since the F9000 uses the one connect box, how would I connect my receiver to it?

The MD ultimate with precision black offers hardware dimming as well.

Are you guys running 16:9 or "screen fit" for Picture Size?

Also, what's up with the CNET calibrated settings? It makes the picture look like it is in Sepia, and there is a haze over everything.

I am running it at screen fit. I am using CNET settings and that is not my experience at all but quite a few people prefer the Natural or Dynamic setting with some tweaking vs Movie setting.

Hello my name is Edwin (from the Netherlands).


I read that everyone use the CNET settings, BUT.
From the ISF calibratie, it is not possible to use 1 setting to 100 tv, all the tv,s are different right? (firmware etc).
Maybey that settings are not so good for jour tv.? (it is between jour ears?).




My tv is 65F9000

My tv is 65F9000

Try them. Total cost around 15 minutes of effort. If you don't like what you see, hit the "reset".


Many of the recommendations are not specific to your particular set (e.g., turning features/processes on or off). Several can be checked or tweaked with a calibration disk (i.e., brightness, contrast, sharpness). Backlight measurement is definitely per your own environment and not exact. Their recommended "7" is fine for a dark room; but I prefer around "12" for a well lit room.


However, you have a point with regard to white balance and color space adjustments. They are objective values and can be measured/adjusted with a meter and calibration software. Two sets would not be the same. However, your eyes (the measurement that really matters) would not be able to tell the difference between for example White Balance 10 pt submenu Interval 1 Red setting of "-1" or "-2".


In the final analysis, are the CNET settings closer to what you want (do they look better) than factory defaults? I know what a properly calibrated display looks like. I had my first two primary sets professionally calibrated; and I calibrated my third with a colorimeter and professional calibration software (was a newer set and I got numbers/printout as good or better than printouts from the professionals). I decided to try the CNET settings with the F9000 and was very pleased with the results. Definite improvement over factory defaults and I believe the gray scale and colors are as good as I've ever had. With this set and this picture, I definitely won't pay $800 for a new meter and software or $400 for a professional calibration. Not to mention, my wife has threatened me with bodily harm if I "change anything".


As you said, they may not be right for your TV. However, as I said, it only takes around 15 minutes to try and the result may be excellent. Trust you eyes to see if you are happy with the final result.

Are boot loops indicative of impending failure? (I read Samsungs have a capacitor problem which leads to power failure).

I got my first today. Turned on the TV, and it got stuck at the boot logo that says "Smart TV" I think. Not the picture with the apps. Then it looped and restarted fine.

Also, I've been noticing a significant 2-3 second delay between pressing the power button to turn the TV off, and the TV actually turning off. Is this normal?

TV is 4 days old.

It can be a software issue too. Try a reset and see if it still happens after that.
Make sure you have the latest firmware.

It is normal that it takes a few seconds for the TV to turn off.

A short time later he called back saying he had spoken to a supervisor and that they would come out and do an in site evaluation and decide if it we warrantable do to having bought an essentially "used" TV.

I would only recommend using CNET or other owner settings as a start point since your viewing conditions may be very different and your personal preference may run 180 degress contrary to what a Calibrator may set as THE Standard via measurements. When it comes to my money, eyes, preference for Dynamic PQ Pop runs contrary to a washed out Cinema look and I don't give a crap what the calibrator or anyone else thinks as it's my money and I get to blow my brains out if I choose with a Vivid PQ. If I want normal I'll look out my window.

I'll use them as a starting point and then tweak them until I'm satisfied - sort of like others telling you how to have an orgasm when what pleases us is individual preference not a measurement in a lab using another's perception for us to follow as Lemmings. Use as a reference to start from and then go for what turns you on!
