Your 5080 didn't buzz on full white scenes? Mine did...

Sorry if this has be addressed, but I could not find an answer when doing a search of this thread. I have a region free DVD player that works fine with my Sammy UHD TV. On my VT50, however, when I try to play a region 2 DVD, I get audio but no video. I assume it is because the discs are PAL. Has anyone been able to play DVDs that are not region 1 on the VT50? If so, are there settings on the TV that I need to change? Thanks for any help.

Pal won't work. You'll need to convert to ntsc. Some region frees players have that ability. For blurry its 24p so non issue.

Issue with bluetooth

Hi,

Have had the 55" version of the Rv for a while, never used the Bluetooth function nor the little mouse wand thingy. Tried to use it recently and it's as if the to doesn't have a working Bluetooth module, the initial set up process doesn't go through the process as per the manual to set up and pair with the wand, nor does the Bluetooth menus allow you to pair with the wand or with anything Bluetooth, it's as if the item I need to select is disabled, I Se the word access in the Bluetooth menu, but on trying to confirm it just does nothing.. Anything I can do to test or check if the Bluetooth module is stuff from day one? Thanks

So, update for the curious... I've now gotten 4 full watching days without any shutdowns. Things seem as good as ever. #knockonwood

Everyone's help was greatly appreciated.

With HDMI cables, if you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working. Also, while anecdote is the "singular of data" your personal anecdote isn't data. When you conflate your anecdote with data and then decide someone else's anecdote isn't data, you earn a place on my ignore list.

I found a trouble tree in the ST60 manual. Maybe this will help sort things out.

Thanks. Unfortunately this player does not have that option.
