I did the firmware update on the TV, but that wasn't the problem. Out of the box, the EVGA 970 graphics card does 4k @ 30hz. You have to enable UHD color on the Samsung to get 4k @60hz 4:4:4 color....

Actually got it working at 4k/60 hz. Getting the menus and text sizes sorted out so it's usable. All is well... even better, BB matched the Amazon Black Friday price of $$$$ - so I got it for $300...

I was talking to a Samsung rep trying to sort out some video sync issues with my panel, and she mentioned that some are having HDMI handshake issues. Turn the panel on first, then turn on the cable,...

A USB 3.0 thumbdrive is roughly 10x the speed (in theory, anyway!) of a USB 2.0 thumbdrive. That COULD be a factor. I had issues with a USB 3 drive that cleared up when I reformatted it. Then the...

Holy Moly, Batman! The 40" 6950 I just paid $899 for at BB last week is $597 on their Black Friday special... I think I might have to try to do a price match or something. I wish the 50" 8550 was on...

Hadn't seen that - it's a 1080p set, but that's a good price for a 55" 3D set. As I sit here squinting to see text on my 40" 4k, I sometimes wish I'd just stayed 1080p... I don't quite have...

It's a 6830- is that last year's model? I got a 6950 40" for that price. The 6950 50" is like $1099.

So... I have an NVidia 970 card, and when I enabled UHD color, I was able to select 60 hz at 4k. I don't see 4:4:4 listed anywhere - but can I assume I'm running that? I can't tell much from the...

But if you DO primarily connect it to a computer? Would an 8550 let my NVidia 970 video card connect at 4k, 60 hz today at 4:4:4 - i.e., without a One Connect box? I can't tell for sure, but I don't...

One Connect Box and Display Port?

So, as I mentioned before, I have a 40" HU6950 that is pretty limited in 4k computer use- you're stuck at 30 hz, which looks ok on regular computer software except some of the menus are SO SMALL AND...

Using M1 speakers as Dolby Atmos Height speakers
