However, I am having a severe issue with a trailing/blurry image which is very noticable from cable, blu ray, and xbox (can not even play halo because it so bad). I have tried several different cables and just went out and bought a bluray monster cable and philips to try and get it to go away and it does not. I even tried a bluray with 24hz setting (on PS3) and CinemaSmooth (on tv) turned on and that makes everything worse. I even tried factory pic settings and cnet clibration settings and nothing helps.
Does anyone have any ideas????
I want to tell you that I also have experienced this
It's an awful thing, make ma whatever your watching unwatchable really
I've come to the conclusion that there are a cmfew factors at play causing this. ..
However I just want to say, that this is a educated guess on my end from watching a vast amount of material to try and recreate this issue and coming to the conclusion that this phenomenon is
1. Cable / Satellite Signal based issues
- I think the tv is so good that when you Watch material on it from a channel with not so great bandwidth for pumping out HD, the tv in its first few hundred hours seems to show you all the artifacts, all the limitations of the signal ( try watching HBO or NBC, I never encountered this on those channels )
2. Blu-Ray - low bit rate films
- The tv seems to also suffer in its initial few hundred hours from feeding less than high bit rate 1080p source material. In other words, poorly mastered or less than stellar Blu Rays out there. (try Avatar, or Tree Of Life, or LOTR) it seemed to not be an obvious issues with these discs...but, when I put my eyes right up to the tv even in those, i could faintly see it.
3. PS3 media files (MKV Based, mp4, m4v, M2TS or avi if you have to )
- when watching media off the Samsung usb ports or the PS3...I REALLY noticed this phenomenon. I believe that I because if the varying degree of quality in these types of files unless your watching an mkv mp4 or m2ts that is of great quality and usually large file size (4GB to 6GB FILE For a 2 hour movie)
IN THE end , I can tell you that I do not rub into this issue as much as I did now and I have had the tv for 4 months (500 hours)
Also, this did not seem to be a 24p or Cinema Smooth related issue. This is a source material issue
I can assure you, the Samsung pn59d7000 I have is just freaking amazing
Break it in, be understanding of it. and watch great content.
in a little While, these issues will subside.
That's my take, I could be wrong. But this is what I have found to be true.
