He had to be here in Holland and he had time to do a THX calibration on my 51 F8500.

I am over the moon with the job he did, fantastic.

Anyone know what's new in this version?
Does that evo kit dose anything to PQ, is just for the for the smart tv stuff? i read some people have complained about some bugs with hdmi etc and the tv software freezing sometimes when the evo kit is atached.

I've noticed improvements in 3d performance. Overall speed improvements in smart software and also changing channels when watching programming on a over air antenna.

No bugs to report on my end.

But I'm guessing Samsung found some bugs to fix, hence the new firmware my tv got overnight automatically.

When I installed the evo kit, it had firmware 1002 out of the box. Now my tv shows ver 1004. And I had manually checked for a new firmware 2 days prior and nothing was found. So it's new for sure. Just don't know what the changes were.

Does that compromise the television's performance for 1080i; e.g., DirecTV? Most of the posts refer to picture quality for Blu-Ray. 99% of my watching is DirecTV, and cannot imagine a better picture. But could put the F8500 in my master bedroom if picture quality is less than the Panasonic TH-50PHD7UY. Would not consider buying except for end of production, and desire a HDTV for bedroom also. Thanks!

No, it doesn't. A large percentage of 1080i content is film based and the TV can reconstruct the progressive frames with the film modes. It seems to have a good deinterlacer for true video 1080i as well.

^^^ Correct. Also, the unit will take in all content, no matter what resolution below 1080P, and up converts to 1080P, the native resolution of the TV. No PQ will be lost during this process.

Julian has a great reputation in Europe and the UK. I am sure he did as good of a job as one of our Top Calibrators here in the U.S.
You can try and copy all the settings from other people's TV's but, there's just nothing like a good calibrator getting a hold of the adjustments with his meter's on your TV.

I am in the Netherlands 2-3 times a year. Maybe we can blow the froth off a couple sometime.
