Official Samsung UNXXEH6000 Owners' Thread - Page 80

post #2371 of 2546
Are you sure that it is a problem with all the TVs that are updated with this firmware?

What I am wondering is if it possible that not all of these TVs will have this problem with this firmware, and that maybe only some of them do, or maybe only yours is messed up.

Has anyone else reported this problem anywhere?

It seems like if there were a huge known problem with a firmware that Samsung would at least fix it.

I'll research more before I update, that's for sure.
post #2372 of 2546
Not claiming to be sure of anything. Just that after I did research I can see that others have the problem (even in this thread) and they share same results trying to fix and even with Samsung service work the problem persisted for others. I am just raising it as an fyi and saying I would not recommend this model of TV based on my experience.

Our older TV is a 2010 Vizio SV472XVT and that TV has equal picture quality and superior from 20+ degree angles and has taken much less effort to calibrate and has worked smoothly since day one. I am not terribly concerned with this problem, Though my impression of Samsung TVs is of course less positive than before I owned one. I will certainly evaluate the competition before my next TV purchase which is a couple years away, OLED OLED OLED. :-)

Good news. This lip syncing issue reported in the previous posts resolved over the weekend. All I did was leave it unplugged for 24 hours by accident after giving up on troubleshooting...
post #2374 of 2546
Hi all,

Just bought the UN65EH6000F model and was about to update the firmware to the version I downloaded from the Samsung site (ver 1012.3); however, as I was going through the process, the message showed up as "Upgrade version 1020 to version 1012?..."

Is this in-fact an upgrade or am I updating it to a previous version? Should I go through with the "upgrade"?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hey everyone! Just bought a UN50EH6000 and I'm very happy with it!
Just one thing that I don't understand though...
I bought a BD-E5400 Blueray player. Only has HDMI output. My amplifier doesn't have HDMI on it but has optical and is capable of DTS (it's been in the past, with a standard DVD player plugged in with optical cable). So I figured "hey, let's plug the Blueray into the TV and plug the optical output into the amplifier, it should work!"
It doesn't...
I can't change the output setting in the menus on the TV...it's kind of greyed out...
Any ideas? I can't belive it doesn't work...

Thank you!

I assume you also have a receiver, wouldn't you need to change the input to your BD player? I am a little rusty, don't have anything going to my NAD receiver other than the DVR.

I think that has to do with HDCP. If it comes in through HDMI, then it has to leave through an HDCP enables HDMI port if it is of a certain quality. If you could plug in an optical cable out to a PC for instance, there is no content protection there, and you could record high def audio. That would make the MPAA sad. So they make your life miserable with hardware based content protection schemes. Yay..

Don't feel bad, I couldn't even use a freaking DVR via HDMI to a 42" RCA 1080p HDTV trying to hook stuff up at my parents house. I had to resort to component cables for it to even work at all because the crap RCA HDTV had HDMI, but was not HDCP enabled. What a bunch of BS. Ended up replacing the TV eventually because it wouldn't work with a blu ray player either, at all via HDMI.

You probably need to just get a modern HDMI AVR and be done with it, then connect BD player to AVR, then connect TV to AVR via HDMI.

I think if you had component hookup on the BD player you could hook it up thew way you want, but you'd only get 1080i, not 1080p.
It may be just a setting in there though,and if you set it just right, it might work.

That's crazy!

I had an issue once with my old Yamaha AVR that got cleared up after unplugging it for a while though. I guess its kind of like rebooting your PC or cable box.

Yep, that's a problem with every HDTV I've looked at. I wish they had matte screens like my old Sony, but unfortunately they don't. And plasmas are the worst because they are glass,
post #2379 of 2546
It's odd that my 46" has a very nice semi-matte screen but other sizes are glossy.

BTW made no changes to my settings in a very long time and still very happy with the set. As it's aged the darkened corners flaw has gotten noticably better too. It'd be out of warranty now except my credit card doubled that. :-)
post #2380 of 2546
My mom's 55 inch is matte! Just like my Sharp Aquos from 2007..
post #2381 of 2546
Matte is all relative. A lot of newer LED/LCD say they are semi-matte, but to me they are semi-glossy.

I tried a Samsung 46" FH6030 & it was about the same as the 46" ES6150. Also tried last years Sharp 52" which was less glossy than the Samsungs, but only by a small amount. However nothing seems to compare to older sets. It seems ever since the manufacturers started using high contrast screens (or similar terms) they have become less matte.

I still have an old Sony LCD RP and nothing in the last couple of years that I have seen can match its matte screen. It's really pleasure to watch.
post #2382 of 2546
Yeah it might be a tad glossier than my old Aquos, which has a very nice matte finish.. about as matte as I have ever seen. I still use the Aquos every day. Her Samsung with the Samsung panel really looks close to my old Aquos to me.

I wonder if the different panel manufacturers for this TV have different levels of matte finish? I never even thought about that before. I mean just for this model.

Hey guys first post here just bought a un55eh6030 from the store a few days ago and overall everything is fine, this was one on display got for 700 was in good shape 1 year warranty plus my cc gives me another year. I always do research before I buy anything, extensive but once again Samsung got me due to frustration. I was looking for a 55 to 60 led 120hz tv for around 700. The problem was I was going to buy a TCL and just hated how they looked in the store and after hours I just picked a Samsung close in price. Now honestly this screen is great but as weird as this sounds I wanted the option to have the soap opera effect or smoothing. Mainly I have have 60hz TV's for years and mainly all I use the tv for is a htpc monitor and xbox and dtv NFL football sundays that's it.

Now I could also got a vizio e601i-a3 for around 800 from a friend but I don't like that tv. To make matters worse I only had the Samsung for a couple of days and after cleaning this weekend gf insisted I throw away the box, meantime on the tv I keep saying to myself it doesn't feel like 120hz picture is fine but not soap opera smooth. Well box is gone and pretty much I will probably just keep it not worth it to return it now, plus it's tigerdirect and returns are a pain there. I could of afforded a lot more tv but I really don't need smart TV's because I won't use the apps but now seeing how I like a lot of options I would of spent more going back.

Anyway just hoping for something to make me feel better about having this tv for the next couple of years

WTF? You don't like the "soap opera effect" on this TV so you you were going to return it? Seriously?
Wow.
post #2385 of 2546
/quote]WTF? You don't like the "soap opera effect" on this TV so you you were going to return it? Seriously? Wow.[/quote]

What I meant was my model only has led motion plus which is not the same as auto motion plus. Pretty much the TV looks like a 60hz picture. Almost every led 120hz TV has this effect and for me its hard to justify this purchase with out that. I am not saying I want the soap opera effect just some kind of motion smoothing.

post #2386 of 2546
I guess my personal preference is that I hate that effect so I always tune it completely out when setting up the TV.

I saw it on the 55" Sammy when setting it up for my mom and I did see it working, and I couldn't tell the difference between that an any other 120, 240hz TV with that effect turned on. Maybe I am missing something though.
post #2387 of 2546
the EH6000 has AMP so does the FH6030 but the EH6030 doesn't

in any case, AMP is broken on most current Samsungs that have it (skipped frames and other issues/artifacts)... so it's really a moot point

post #2388 of 2546
Yeah most of the threads I have been reading say that they don't like Auto motion Plus, I guess I was just feeling bad because I felt like I just upgraded to another 60hz tv. Still not sure if it's 60hz in 2d but that doesn't make sense since it is a 120hz tv and most likely would be all the time. The picture is really nice and clear it's just I mainly use it for my htpc which is an acer revo 3700 and my internet is not even that fast so most content I stream is hardly even hd. I haven't seen many other Samsung models so I guess I just automatically assumed they are way better.

I guess I should be happy because I really didn't want to risk buying the TCL and I tried the vizio e601-a3 and I didn't like it couldn't seem to get used to the picture, remote sucked, and xbox had some serious input lag.

I currently have the EH6030 (which lacks AMP) but before it I tried a EH6000 (which has AMP). Not only was AMP glitchy on the EH6000 with certain sources like HD cable, the overall motion clarity was worse on the EH6000 regardless of what AMP setting was used. I game quite a bit and there was a night and day difference in motion clarity between the two when playing PS3 games like RE6.

Yeah, I guess I'm stuck with changing either the BD player so it has an optical cable output or change the amp/receiver...

Thanks guys!

But I don't understand couldn't you just turn the amp off and it world be the same as the eh6030

My point here is that the EH6030 has better motion clarity than the EH6000 (most likely since it is 3D capable and being 3D capable requires certain things a 2D-only TV does not) and that is regardless of whether AMP is on or off on the EH6000.

Yeah I see what your saying I went to the store today to look at similar models with the AMP on and I see that it's not something worth changing my EH6030 for. I guess I was expecting the smoothness of a 240hz If I would of done a little bit more research I could of had a un55fh6030 from Costco at 800 plus tax but oh well I paid about 780 for my EH6030.

I know but I almost paid that for a eh6030 so might as well got the newest model fh6030.

So after reading all 8o pages if this thread, the 50EH6000 sounds like the display for me, but did I read or miss the fact that the 50" EH6000 is not available with the Samsung TS01 or TS02 panels ? Off angle viewing is key for me in the room it's going in.

you are right, no S-PVA (Samsung) panels in the 50" size
post #2398 of 2546
55" display is sweet for the price if you can fit it in the room.
post #2399 of 2546
Can anybody tell me what panel comes in the EH6000 65"? I remember it being MS or something but can't seem to find it in the 80+ pages of this thread. I know all 60" sets have the HS-01 panel. Thank you!
post #2400 of 2546
Question regarding external speaker usage....I am interested in getting a mid range sound bar, hooked up via optical I'm guessing. Is the external speaker connection variable with the tv volume remote? Thanks
