WTH. Sams club is selling un40eh5050 for $678 and un46eh5050 for $698. $20 difference? lmao. Un40eh5050 was $529 last time I checked.

Wow, i just hooked my PC up to my UE-40EH5000, i have it in HDMI2, with game mode off, i have absolutely zero input-lag.

Man i love this TV biggrin.gif When gaming i dont notice any input lag, it's like playing on a regular PC screen.

I just purchased the Samsung 46-5000 series I believe I should be able to adjust the picture as discussed here,,Correct?
post #184 of 268
I have adjusted the settings as recommended here and I am quite happy with the results, thank you for posting. Some recommend waiting a few months before doing a calibration, True?

I have a UN40EH5000F.

I downloaded the latest firmware from Samsung's website and I briefly (thought I) saw it was going to update it from 1012 to 1014. So, I proceeded to update and now it's 1012.eek.gif Could I have misread that it was going upgrade to 1014 but in reality, it downgraded to 1012?

confused.gif

How to I upgrade it to 1014? I can't seem to find that firmware.

regarding your mistake, it probably said it would go to 1012 from 1014 (1014 being stated after 1012, which made it look like going from 1012 to 1014)

Do you know what the difference is between 1012 and 1014? I can't seem to find that information anywhere...

So, I have been in search of a good gaming tv, and recently bought a panasonic c3 32 inch tv from amazon that is720 p, I didn't think not having 1080p would bother me,but of course it does. I was in best buy tonight, and they had 4 boxes below the display that say model ts01 on the label. Does that indicate the sharp panel ? Also, anyone here play call of duty much on this tv ? Please gimme me feedback as to what your thoughts are. I read in this thread that some say this tv blurs during games, but others say that it doesn't. For the money , can't imagine a better 32 inch tv. My other option I have been considering is a 25 inch monitor, but 32 inches seems like the perfect size to game on. I have a 50 inch panny gt25 plasma that is great, but I seem to do better playing on the 32 inch c3 I have.
post #189 of 268
ok how do I tell what kind of panel my tv is?

I just purchased this TV and love it too. When unpacking I noticed while handling it by the upper corners, the bezel did feel a bit loose. After setting it up I noticed that the top corners only are a bit loose and I can easily squeeze it together with very little finger pressure. Maybe 1/8th inch or so. Thought it might be assembled incorrectly and even went back to the store to test the display model which did move a bit but not as much as mine. Then I searched the internet and found this thread...maybe a few are looser than others, does not seem to matter though. Hopefully not a problem.

Well that didn't work....for Mom. It just an SD picture??

Bought the UN32EH5000 TV and replaced Mom's old tube TV on her back patio. This new 32" Sammy is fed by a coax cable from her living room DirecTV HD-DVR. It defaulted to "Cable" as the source. Her living room TV is a Sammy LED connected by HDMI to the same HD-DVR.

The UN325000 is only displaying an SD signal. I used the profile settings mentioned in this thread. I thought an HD signal can be pushed through a coax cable? I mean, that's how the local cable company does it correct? Am I missing a setting on the 32" Sammy that is keeping it from displaying in HD?

In Nov. 2011 DirecTV updated their software & onscreen guide. Since that major update a warning message pops up on the patio TV that states "Either your TV or the cable is not HD compatable blah blah. Please replace...blah". So I replaced that old TV today and she still gets the message, still gets that ol standard def poor picture.

Any help would be appreciated.

Coax does not carry HD signal. You need an HDMI cable from the source to the tv. Or the green red blue cables but HDMI is much better.

I recently bought UE40EH5000 (40A6AFOD, FW 1021.0) and I am quiet pleased with picture quality in general. However gamma is way off the desired 2.2 value. Mid-tones seem way to bright, gamma values seem to range from 1.6 when set to -3 to 1.2 when set to + 3 in movie mode (used following test images converted to .bmp on USB: http://radsite.lbl.gov/radiance/refer/Notes/gamma.html, http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/gamma_calibration.php, http://www.lcdreviewz.com/GammaCorrection). Did anyone else notice similar issue?

Coax output from a DVR box is only analog standard-def on channel 3, no HD that way at all. Local cable companies modulate several digital/HD channels via direct coax connection (no box) but a DVR box coax output doesn't have that capability.

You could buy an HDMI splitter (available at places like monoprice.com) that would allow for outputting extra HDMI outputs from a single HD-DVR box to drive more than one HDTV.
Use with a good quality 25foot or slightly longer HDMI cable to the other room, and a short 6foot HDMI cable to the TV in the same room as the DVR, that works for me with a similar setup.
I also use a remote accessory that allows a remote control to communicate with the DVR box via RF from another room for controlling the DVR, works great.

Is this with an HDMI connection? Try changing the HDMI level setting, one of them to make it darker.

Thanks Brisco. She already has a UHF remote to control DVR from the patio. It's 48ft. including all the bends from the DVR to the patio TV. I'm not sure HDMI would work. A quality cable would probably be an arm an a leg....certainly not buying Monster Ultra smile.gif. The component connection is 5 cables (3 vid, 2 audio) and not interested in that. I might dump this in the lap of DirecTV to see if they will send out an installer, see how he deals with it. Thanks everyone.

No, test images were run directly off USB Flash Drive. I used flowing image to approximate current gamma value: http://radsite.lbl.gov/radiance/refer/Notes/images/gamma.gif. This image http://www.lcdreviewz.com/graphics/GrayGammaAdjust.gif clearly shows gamma issues as well. Would anyone be so kind and run this or similar test* and report back results?

*You may need to convert images from .gif to .bmp in Paint (don't use .jpg).

I'm not sure I'd trust the TV's built in media player for calibration, as I'm pretty sure (last time I checked) it had undefeatable processing.

I would test on via a PC hooked up with HDMI at native resolution, and the input will have to be renamed to "PC", otherwise it will subsample it and the gamma tests won't work.
post #201 of 268
I will test it and report back, but even if it is only feature/malfunction of TV's built in media player is just bizarre. Why would anyone set gamma this way? Default value in movie mode is 1.4!
post #202 of 268
As time goes on with these TVs in regards to the panel lottery, is it still basically chance, even if you're buying new? Or over time will Samsung start using the cheaper panels as the product gets phased out?

I would have to assume that going with a refurb on this would result in low chances on a good panel, right? I mean, I figure if people are returning the set, maybe it's because the panel they got wasn't as good.

I'm new to all this and it's just so weird to me that products of the same model number can be so different. Are these different panels THAT different?
post #203 of 268
Adjusted a bit my calibrated settings. smile.gif
post #204 of 268
I've been getting a blue blur round moving objects.
Anyone have any idea what could be causing this?
Do I have a setting set too high for instance?
post #205 of 268
Any ideas what the 1021 update improves/fixes?
post #206 of 268
As I wait for a sale anywhere on the EH5000, is there really any way to ensure that I get a good panel? Someone mentioned that you can tell by looking at a sticker on the TV. Is this true, or can you only know by going into the service menu? It would be helpful to know if I wind up getting the TV refurbished at some point. Thanks!

Look at the link in my sig....
post #208 of 268
I guess what I really meant to say was...do you think they'd let me look at the sticker on the back of the TV at the store? I'd hate to open it up and get a lousy TV at home, only to have to bring it back and hope that the next one was any better.

The version is on the sticker outside the box itself. There's a picture of it on that post. You don't have to open the box up.

Oh, okay, that's great. I'd love to go to Target tomorrow. It's at $479.00 and I'm not sure I'll get it any cheaper new unless I want to wait forever on Black Friday. I don't mind paying a few extra bucks for it, I mean it's already pretty cheap (or so it looks that way to me).

Don't think they'll be open tomorrow....probably shouldn't even leave the house because of the big storm going on haha.

(edit: Sorry for sounding dumb - I must've scrolled past that first image because I only saw the images of the sticker from the TV)

If for some reason it's safe at all tomorrow and Target is open I might swing by and see if I can get a TS02 version number. I just really hope I don't have to deal with any sort of ghosting or motion problems. I'll be pretty disappointed if it looks like the backgrounds smear around when I play my games frown.gif
