I just bought the PN51F8500 TV and started using it, but I'm having a few problems with the TV. So I'd like to hear the experiences of other owners on these issues. I don't know if the TV is faulty or if there is a way to fix them. Samsung support has not been very helpful, and I only have until Saturday to return the TV if needed. So any help will be very appreciated.
The first thing is that whenever I enable Game Mode to use the ps4, the image looks grainy (like a noisy image). If I turn off Game Mode the image looks fine. I tried reducing the Sharpness but it doesn't help much. It's noticeable in games when there are bright scenes, and it's extremely evident on Netflix series such as Breaking Bad (via ps4).
The second thing is that I have read that renaming HDMI input to "PC" and using "Screen Fit'' reduces lag and avoids screen tearing when gaming. However, when I rename the input to "PC," "Screen Fit" becomes disabled. Is this supposed to happen? It seems that everyone suggests having both options enabled, but I can't have them at the same time. Also, PC deteriorates the picture quality really bad, it looks washed out.
Finally, the volume from SmartHub's apps is really low and the voices are kind of muffled. When watching Netflix I have to crank up the volume to 30 in order to more or less hear. When watching movies through Amazon, voices are very low compared to background sound (e.g. Inception). I've tried "Clear Sound" and other options but they don't change much.
Again, any advice/suggestions will be very helpful.
