Oh, also the active 3D on the 9000 is excellent as well, if you're into that kind of thing (I sure am )

The only quirkiness with the sound I've encountered is that after I switch between optical or HDMI, I have to periodically go back into the sound settings on the TV and force the audio back to Dolby Digital - which appears to provide 5.1 surround sound.


Other than that, it seems to be working great.


If you connect a sound source to the One Connect box, and the source supports one of the HD audio formats, there doesn't appear to be any way to pass that through the TV to the receiver. So if you want HD audio, the source will have to be connected to the receiver - and send the video to the TV.


The other issue that I've encountered is that if you are using a source on the receiver and you're using HDMI ARC from the TV, after the TV first turns on (about 15 seconds), the TV sends a signal to the receiver - and if the receiver is set to automatically switch to the HDMI ARC audio upon getting TV audio, then you have to re-select the correct source on the receiver, which I've been able to do by adding a 20 second delay in the universal remote.
Thanks Bob. I was having issues when trying to play audio out of the tv speakers, no receiver, just blu ray connected directly to the tv - I can only hear background audio but no dialogue. I know most people would be using external speakers but I just thought it was odd that the tv couldn't receive 5.1, convert to 2.0 and then play out of the tv speakers

katz review also spoke very highly of HU9000's motion handling, which for some reason people seem to talk bad about. It's damn good, even without SOE.

Wondering if a FW update can fix the flicker with LED clear motion. It drives me nuts so I don't bother using it.

Also, anyone use standard picture mode? Anyone care to share some calibration settings in standard mode? Apparently it's the only mode that uses auto depth enhancer.

Come on guys. I posted several settings and have told you guys this is how I get my pictures.

Everytime I post settings the are for standard.

Standard has always been the full resolution setting on a sammy.

Again go back to my post. All pics have always been from standard mode. Al settings ive posted too.

Ummm... Wasn't that the 65" he reviewed? Looked a little small to be a 78" TV.(Looked quite small compared to my 73") He does this crap based on just the series of TV. Give us an actual 78" after calibration review.

Makes total sense to me, except that I thought most allow for the "native" output. I know that all DTV receivers have supported "native" for more than the last 10 years.


Regarding Darbee, I even stopped using it and went to "native" output on my OPPO 103D as soon as I got the 2014 UHD kit for updating my F9000. I now believe the upconversion with the 2014 box provides a better picture than when using Darbee with upconversion on the 103D. I realize that's subjective; but my wife definitely agrees and that's the confirmation that matters.

They review what the manufactures give them free for testing (which most do, expect Consumer Reports).

So you prefer Active 3D over Passive 3D even when both are doing true 1080P Full HD resolution? Why?
tontondavid's Avatar tontondavid 05:42 PM 07-03-2014
OK im having optical digital 5.1 issues again, this after the new firmware. It seemed to work fine before but now I only get dolby 2.0 from anything other than built in apps like Netflix. Which means that bluray and ps4 are back to 2.0. I tried to reset the TV multiple times with no success.
Is there a way to do a full factory reset other than the one through self diagnosis Menu??

Help....

If you have your TV audio output set to PCM it will only output 2 channel audio. Choose Dolby or DTS and you will get 5.1, it is a problem with the majority of TVs on the market.

Of course not, if it's full 1080p.

But the Sony is active 3d just like the samsung, and the Sony 3d is inferior to samsung. The 79" 900B is passive though.

Is this for cable/sat or Bluray? Or both? Whatever looks best to your eyes is what matters. Darbee doesn't work with 4k anyways, it's for 720p/1080i/1080p content, that explains why the native pass through looks better.

Ok. I'm in the market for the 79" set, so yeah to me the active 3d is a con compared to some of the competition like the Sony. I don't see why any of brands wasted the potential of a 4K panel on Active 3D.

To my knowledge nobody has done a proper review of the 79" 900B yet. It's passive 3D because it's IPS, which will almost certainly reduce effective contrast. But perhaps Sony can pull it off. Hopefully we get a review soon enough.

I agree. Definitely not making any assumptions about the Sony until I've seen it, and read calibrated results.

Well I waited a year to buy the x900a because of its passive 3d. I've had a friend throwing it in my face for a year. I love my active 3d. He hates my set. Makes him feel the cross talk is much better for my set.

It is. Lines are smooth. Pictures are bluray clear. But in 3d.

Yes that's obvious, but the sony can't do it. Yet Another win for the hu9000.

I used the OPPO only for upconverting Bluray. I used it for five months with Darbee while upconverting to 4k. Native is the only resolution where Darbee can't be used.

I have a few things to say.

1. the curve is not gimmick, I hope to never own a flat screen again. Just different sized curved screens. I feel as immersed in my movies as I do in a theater. Theaters worth a damn have curved screens. Don't buy into the bull that movies don't fit the screen. They look great.

2. I have tried even a ant in signal from comcast and it looks near DVD on this set. Katz ran over it like he was scared to go into how good it is. I think Katz is a plasma homer. I also think he tends to prefer sony as a brand. Just from his past reviews.

I don't care if you own a plasma, oled, projector, led projector. Any of them. There is not a single tv I feel jealous looking at. Not a damn one. Size doesn't count. Just set.

3. I've realized once the next external upgrade comes this tv will actually get better . I just can't imagine how. But man I'm sure it will rock. I also love how the set evolves and the picture quality can evolve and get better. That is a standout feature that people really need to take note of.

There is only one brand that is doing this. No need to open the panel. So good. Damn good.

Hey all, my UN65HU9000F arrives tomorrow and something occurred to me: Can I use the native Samsung remote(s) to control my DirecTV receiver? This is my first new TV in about 5 years, so I was unsure if that was the case.

Thx

Edit: Just read the Samsung help docs...it looks like I can

From the reviews I've read both have been very close, with one brand having better areas in one area vs the other.. Its also important to note with the TVs being so closely matched the Samsung is currently selling for much less $4300 vs $5000 and design aside I think the one-connect box is a more killer feature than Sonys speaker system long term.

You can get 1080p from your Sammy Vudu app, and, I think from HBO-GO. On demand can give you 1080p, but no STB I know of has the network channels in 1080p

Sony X900b over hu9000 anyday. Superior in all ways. Rich deep colors, black levels contrast, motion lag, much better gaming with that exellent low ms.
Speakers on that thing, nothing comes close. Keep on hating, and stay 'curvin' with your sammys lol.. We out here 'Sonying' yall
