For a few days now I have turned on the ENERGY SAVING mode and set it to AUTO. This is not the eco solution / sensor. All I can say that is when watching a show in a dark room the flashlighting / clouding is 98% gone from my panel with the energy saving mode.
I adjusted the other settings to compensate and I can finally say I am "happy" with the picture quality during dark scenes.
BTW, I am using the UN46C6300.
Let me know if it works for others.
I'm in Afghanistan right now so I can't test it on my 55C6300. I'm not saying I absolutely don't believe you but it makes no sense.
Energy saving mode, correct me if I'm wrong, but all that does is "shut down" the screen when the tv is not receiving a signal for a while. I could be mistaken and what I describe is another function.
I remember that on my old LCD, energy saving would simply reduce the backlight at 3 different levels making everything darker of course. If using AUTO like you said makes everything darker, then we have the issue of black crush and losing detail which is no good.
Anyway, I will check it out when I get back but I'm a little confused at want the energy saving does on the 6300
Edit: So I looked it up and the Energy Saving settings reduce the brightness from OFF to LOW, MED, HIGH etc. Now the real question is what exactly does it do? Does it reduce just the backlight or also the actual brightness? And this is different from Eco Sensor meaning it does not react to AMBIANT light.
So it reacts to what when on AUTO? What ever is going on on the screen? Would this be some way of dynamic backlight?
Who can sort this out for us, because this could be a very good solution to clouding and flashlight, assuming it doesnt mess up the rest of the PQ and settings.
