Do you have a U.S. Version with Local Dimming, (Smart LED)? Panel Version is on the spine of the box or sticker on the back of the TV. It will say Version # TS01, TS02, or TD01/TD02 for 65". The H8000 has Samsung Panels but was just curious.

I'd love to know what changes (if any) were made to the input lag in game mode with this update. I've been holding out due to reports of it increasing to 47ms with the last update. If they got it back down, I'm all over this set.

I have the Leo Bodnar tester, I originally tested the 65h8000 on firmware 1121, the tv in pc and game
Mode was in the 48ms range, firmware 1131 it went to 35.5 solid in pc mode and same in game mode.

Then firmware 1141 the input lag went to 47-48 ( it kept changing a bit) in pc and game mode.

I will update the tv tonite and test both modes again and post on here lets hope it went back down :0

Checked with firmware 1151, middle bar is now 42 in pc and game mode, still not close to the 35 for the middle bar I had on firmware 1131... Smh

Does anyone know if auto depth enhancer is active in dynamic mode ? I reallly liked standard mode, but after these past updates dynamic mode is now much better than standard mode.

Hi sharific,

On the back side of your TV, about mid way up on the right hand side, oposite to the connection inputs, you'll find a label with the Model number,Serial Number etc. between the Model Number and the Serial number it will have "Version: xxxx". My version is TS02, yours will be something similar I expect...

Intermittent audio dropout from analog input

(the picture instead is perfect), about 7 minutes from the time to tv is switched on and then, the same thing for every 3 minutes and 30-35 seconds.
This issue is very regular, so i suspect a firmware bug (the last 1141 is already instelled), but i'm not very sure and could be my tv set defective also.
I already done a tv reset
Someone found the same problem? Or someone can try to use component input?

Thanks a lot

Thanks
Just to say that last firmware, v.1150 has definitely solved the problem.
Thanks Samsung

Here's some info that might be useful, I have the H8000 curved 55'' bought it in April. Some time back I noticed the dimming processing seemed to go wacky. On a panoramic movie with the black bars on the top and bottom I was getting sporadic light flashing in the black bars, on bright scenes, a light colored wall in the back ground would have sporadic dark splotches, I tried different Smart led Setting , dynamic contrast settings, cinema black, everything. I thought I had wasted 1900.00 dollars. I don't know why it took me so long but today I hit the picture reset button and it fixed it, no flashing in the black bars, background walls are a solid color it's working like it did when it was new.

I've been seeing the commercials on tv. I'm wondering...what is the benefit of a curved screen? Won't that just introduce image distortions of some sort?

I've read this whole thread and about 70% of the H7150 Thread. I'm torn between the two. Does the U.S. Version of the H8000, with local dimming enabled, exhibit any uniformity issues, (Clouding/Flashlighting)?

After reading most of the H7150 posts it seems it's hit or miss with uniformity problems. Even among Samsung Panels, (TS01/TH01). I think a lot of the 7150 owners who claim their set is relatively blemish free are not sure what uniformity is or aren't obsessing over it because there are quite a few reports of Flashlighting and clouding on the S-PVA Panels.

I own both. I love the 7150. I think all of the sets are going to have some screen uniformity issues etc but overall it is a great tv. Way much better than last years 7100 series. No comparison. That being said, I think the 8000 curve blows the 7150 away. The smart tv / web browser is much snappier as well as better screen uniformity, flash lighting and black levels. So much so that I am planning on selling mine and picking up another one if I can get a good deal. Both are winners in my book but if you have the extra money, the 8000 would be the way to go. The curve is just sexy.

This will be in the wife's bedroom, with only a straight on viewing, and no worries about off to the side observations.
Wife says NO, other priorities, I can't stand not picking up on the deal - $900 Off! Will sleep on it!
DOA when she comes home next weekend and I bought it! (30 Day return policy?)

Cancelled Reserved Units and purchased the 4k UN55HU7000 instead. Same price special until this week with UDTV Package included # CYJUC10SH/ZA

How is the Flashlighting on the 8000 in a dark room?

After you mess with the settings, not bad at all. World of difference between the 7150 and 8000. It's a lot better straight on, on the sides, you see a bit more.

Are you talking about dialing the brightness down? Do you have a U.S. Version?

Yes, the brightness, backlight, picture settings and advanced settings. Yes, US version.

Here's Mine:
Mode: Standard
Backlight: 15
Contrast: 90
Brightness: 38
Sharpness: 35
Color: 55

That is what works for me.

...but what is the benefit to the curve, itself?

Is it something to do with how it affects screen reflections?...de-correlating and de-focusing the reflection to make it less distracting from the actual material showing on the screen?
