Stop beeing stupid because Samsung will think we are all stupid and we don't really know what problems we have and what fixes we want.
60Hz input (US TV) -> 60Hz panel refresh, MLL ~ 0.035 cd/m^2
24Hz input (BD without CS) -> 60Hz panel refresh, MLL ~ 0.035 cd/m^2
24Hz input (BD with CS) -> 96Hz panel refresh, MLL ~ 0.06 cd/m^2
50Hz input (practicaly CS without control) -> 100Hz panel refresh, MLL ~ 0.06 cd/m^2
I think a 60Hz@120Hz implementation would require a new hardware revision and has an MLL about 0.07 cd/m^2, while it wouldn't really solve anything.
The belief that your problem isn't there when CinemaSmooth is engaged is probably nothing else but a cincidence.
CS is basically a panel refresh rate setting for 24Hz input, it shouldn't change anything else. (The MLL rise is a direct consequece of the higher refresh rate.)
I doubt if the panel refresh rate directly playes a part in the brighttness issues, but even if it does, they should find another solution to fix it for the 60Hz refresh mode.
I believe the problem is always there, and it's only less noticeable with CinemaSmooth.
I am not sure if I have another problem too (an uncommon error over the common error) but I have brightness problems with CinemaSmooth too.
