Do you notice any picture improvements or bug fixes after updating the firmware? My TV came with FW1200, and since this appears to be a point update, if all it does is tweak apps and whatnot in Smart...

BTW and FWIW, I routinely game on my F8500 for 2-3 hours daily. I have a PS4, PS3, and an Xbox 360 connected to it and I have never seen any IR after a session. I do nothing preventative, either...no...

In my experience, the 3D brightness pops appear to be random. I have close to one hundred 3D Blu-ray discs and most play perfectly fine without engaging Cinema Smooth. When I do encounter the issue,...

I don't have the exact same setup, but it's pretty darn close. I have an AVR-3313CI with a PN64F8500 and an OPPO BDP-103. MY F8500 is about a month old and I believe I was experiencing the same (or a...

I'm not familiar with the glasses he's using, but that would be my guess, too.

My PN64F8500 is about two week old, too, and like yours, it has a June 2014 build date. The 64" model definitely uses a Samsung manufactured panel.

I agree, Dan. It is odd, but it appears to be true. This was discussed at length in the ES8000 thread, where it was eventually confirmed. I think this had to do with the capabilities of the Samaung...

I've only had my PN64F8500 for a couple of weeks, but I have not observed this anomaly. I have both of those Blu's, so I will spot check them and let you know. So far, I think the 3D on the 8500 is...

Make sure the insert is seated all the way down in the stand. Even if it's not properly seated, you can still screw it down. This is a bit of a design flaw IMO. This is what happened to me. I...
