A month ago i got a samsung f8000 which i ended up returning due to 3d issues.
I decided to go with the 65VT60 as a replacement as i wasn't happy with the vertical banding, light bleed, motion issues on the f8000.
When I installed the VT60 the difference was night and day, even without any calibrations and set at standard mode, so I'm definately happy about that, the image quality is amazing.
I started by turning enhancements off and also updating to the latest firmware in order to have certain things work (skype requested this)
Yesterday I wanted to see how many hours I used the set, so i got in the service menu and saw 28 hours of usage (btw, on my set the VT60W i've noticed that when in the service menu, i had to press the "2" button twice and not once as the walkthroughs suggest in order to reach the correct page where the "time" info could be seen).
Anyways, my question relates to this "time"
I read online somwhere that the timer will reset after a firmware update, is this true?
if so, then the 28 hours i saw in the service menu probably would be much more, as i watched tv for some days before doing the firmware update.
I'm asking as i was hoping to use this "time" in the service menu to be informed when i reached the appropriate time for calibration.
Thank you for any input.
