While I understand your wanting to keep this thread clean for PNxxB850 and 860 owners, I'm soon buying one of the two, and have a BIG issue that I'm dealing with right now. I believe this post DOES belong here, since it is something that Chad B can measure and test. I live in North Dakota, and my Best Buy in my city is not a Magnolia store. They only have the 850, and said they cannot sell the 860, since it is exclusively Magnolia stores' tv.
My point here is I need to find out definitively whether or not Cinema Smooth is on the 850. I know you and some of the others wish we would stop talking about this, but please try to understand that it just has not been proven, and by that I mean measured to be true
Believe me, I've done my share of reading on this, and this is what I know from the reading I've done, and from your post from the CNET forum:You can turn on 24x4 on the 850 in the service menu
. BUT! And this is the big BUT, while I know that 24x4 IS Cinema Smooth, some have said that the 850 and 860 have DIFFERENT HARDWARE. If they do have different hardware, then it has been mentioned that while they have the same option as the 860 in the service menu, it could be turned off by Samsung since the hardware does not support it. Therefore, if this is true, turning 24x4 on in the 850 SM might not do anything
Many people are trying to get answers by arguing about what "this guy" says or the Samsung tech, or the website, or the user guide, etc. and they all contradict
each other!Here is the answer, so please listen to me
. We need someone with access to a 860 AND an 850 to first somehow measure the motion on the 860 with Cinema Smooth off and then on. Then, do the same thing with the 850. The key is to find a difference in the 860 with it turned on as opposed to off. This is the ONLY true way to prove that it works. It is just not enough for me to make a $2300 investment not fully knowing what I'm getting.
I am sorry if I don't understand the forum enough, and if I am wrong by posting on this thread, but I am soon to be a 850 or 860 owner, and as a soon-to-be Samsung owner, this is HUGE to me. Because of this, I have the best of intentions, and a burning desire, to find a proven answer
to this so everyone can know the truth.
