Official Samsung UNXXES6100 Thread - Page 8

post #211 of 850
Found this thread last week so I decided to join the forums smile.gif I got a UN46ES6100 and the only thing I don't like is the "Precise Dimming" feature, luckily this can be turned off by changing the HDMI Source name to PC, this is great for gaming since the input lag is reduced to something around 30ms.

When using a PS3 for Bluray/DVD movies the TV set get's out of PC mode and applies another set of image settings, which you can change as you like. to turn off the "Precise Dimming" just use Movie Mode, the settings by InsuranceWhiz do a really good job. smile.gif

Can someone please post a properly calibrated "movie mode" setting?

I just noticed the "local dimming / precision dimming" feature while watching TV last night. When the screen is filled with mostly black, the backlight will dim automatically. It occurs a lot during commercials with a black background and dispersed white text, you'll see it sooner or later. It seems "movie mode" is only way to disable this feature.

If you want it properly calibrated you'll have to do it yourself. All sets and viewing environments are different. I posted my setting for Movie Mode but I wouldn't consider them "proper" for your set.

Go get the Disney WOW disc. It's worth every penny.
post #214 of 850
I agree with InsuranceWhiz. Different environments = different settings, you can still use the ones supplied here and see if they satisfy your needs.

I have 3 groups of settings, one for daylight tv watching, one for gaming and another one for watching 24P Blu Rays at night. My living room has a window facing south so sunlight always gets inside from morning till sometime around 8 PM.

Daylight TV Settings (Automatic dimming is not disabled but I can't tell due to the room being too bright).

Picture Mode: Standard
Backlight: 18
Contrast: 95
Brightness: 45
Sharpness: 25
Color: 50
Tint (G/R): 50/50
Picture Size: Screen Fit
Dynamic Contrast: Low
Black Tone: Off
Color Space: Auto
Color Tone: Warm 1
Auto Motion Plus: Clear
Everything else is Off or Default.

TV Settings for Gaming (Xbox 360 and PS3)(If Game Mode is used Automatic Dimming is still enabled)

Change the HDMI Input to PC (Colors get a bit washed out but Automatic Dimming is disabled)
Picture Mode: Standard
Backlight: 18
Contrast: 95
Brightness: 45
Sharpness: 25
Color Tone: Warm1
HDMI Black Level: Low
Everything else is either Default or Disabled.
I still haven't done an Input Lag test.

TV Settings for Bluray 1080P@24 Content when the living room is completely dark (Automatic Dimming is disabled)(If you use your PS3 for both Blurays and Gaming the TV will automatically switch settings, for 1080P@60 content the TV will use the settings set for Gaming)

Picture Mode: Movie
Backlight: 15
Contrast: 95
Brightness: 45
Sharpness: 25
Color: 50
Tint: 50/50
Picture Size: Screen Fit
Dynamic Contrast: Off
Black Tone: Off
Color Space: Auto
10p White Balance: Off
Color Tone: Warm1
BD Wise (Found in General Settings): Off
Everything else is default, disabled or off.

***Other
I heard the Automatic Dimming can be disabled in service mode, I have not tried this since it supposedly voids the warranty.
I already tested the TV set for gaming content below 720P (Wii, Gamecube, PS2, PS1, etc..) The upscaling is awful, stick to an external upscaler or use a CRT tv.
I will try to get a Disney WOW Calibration disc ASAP, I could also make a Flickr Set so you can see some of the results I have with this settings.
Any questions just PM me. smile.gif

Hello guys

I'm new to the forum, and since I've bought a UE46ES6100 maybe 15days ago, I was looking for some explanation about setting the picture definitions of the TV.
I didn't opened/tested if until a couple of days ago, and today I was going to watch "Touch" from the USB, when I noticed in the "Source" menu an entrance about a network computer. I took a picture to show you: 450

Can you tell me what is this ? Was the TV returned from a previous owner and sold again (to me) ? Should I returned it back ?

By the way, when I first turned the TV on, I had to set-up all the default, auto tuning channels, date, wireless network, etc.

I'll be waiting for any answer from you.
Thanks a lot!
Regards

probably your tv just detected your neighbor's pc or laptop......when i turned on my tv's wifi ,the tv auto-detected my laptop.............but i didnt understand....was the picture and general settings on default mode or not?......if the settings were on default...then i think your tv was brand new.


btw...anyone know the best way to clean the screen....should i only use a cloth?....any kind of liquid like the one i use on my lcd monitor......its supposedly made with isopropyl alcohol and distilled water.....thanx for any info on the matter.

Can you elaborate on this? I bought a 40'' earlier today and I'm seeing the same problem, and it's a noticeably-upscaled 480i image rather than an HD image.

I'll be getting this TV tomorrow as an upgrade over my LE40A656 from back in 2008. Loved that TV but had a good chance to get a new one now so i chose the S6100.
I'll be calibrating off of RogeNES' settings as my situation at home is similar with sunlight untill around 8PM.

hope i'll be happy with this tv, i've read some negative things but overall i have good expectations smile.gif

I picked up a 60" on Saturday to replace my 65" Mitsubishi rear projector which finally died after 12 years of faithful service. I've been off the HT forums for years so the first movie we watched on the new set threw us for a loop. But thank heavens that AVS is still around to offer guidance in setting up these new sets. With the Automotion reset, and following the various setting recommendations in this thread, it now looks great.
post #220 of 850
Just curious, which settings did you use?
post #221 of 850
Can someone please confirm if this set plays 1080/24p content fine?

Yes this sets play 1080P@24 Content really good, there's absolutely no flickering or video artifacts in the image.

I'm using InsuranceWiz's settings from post #168 in this thread.

When I first got into HT back in 1999 I'd have been experimenting and logging everything down in a notebook. But now I'm content with using and appreciating the hard work of others. biggrin.gif

Hey all, I just got the 60 inch about a week ago. First off thanks to all for your advice it's helped me tune the picture alot. I have two issues though. The auto dimming was killing me until someone pointed out movie mode disables it. It made dark scenes nearly black!

First, I found I have horizontal bars about 1 inch thick in a light/dark sequence all the way down my screen. Not visible in all scenes, but very annoying. I called samsung and they said they will send out a tech to repair. Not sure if anyone else has seen this issue.

Second, I use my PC, Direct TV box, and PS3 all plugged in through my receiver and then going to my TV over HDMI. The issue I'm seeing is that I need to have the TV input in PC mode to get the PC screen to scale properly, however that changes the picture options and basically locks me into "entertain". It doesn't look bad, but I have less options than movie mode and something about it seems less crisp. Does anyone know what "entertain" does, and also is there a way to get two separate input modes even though technically both come in on the same input due to a receiver?

Thanks!

I just purchased the UN46ES6100F, first, let me just start off with, I love this TV especially when watching Bluray movies from my ps3. That being said, I have noticed something a little annoying and I am just wondering if anybody else is living with this same issue. When viewing anything at night, I notice out of the left hand corner of my screen there is a feint white glow. I have tried lowering the brightness and the LED settings from 20 to 15. (I am one of those people who love the very bright settings) but this feint white glow is slightly annoying and now that I have found it. I do nothing but stare at it when watching a movie, thinking that this is driving me crazy. lol.

When I spoke with samsung, the advice given was "please set the TV to the Standard or Movie picture mode" Unfortunately, this did not resolve the issue. Anybody else experience this? I love the TV, I am not looking to return it.


cool.gif

I haven't seen anything like this on my set.

On an unrelated note, does anyone know if there's a way to get the set to sync the digital audio output quicker? I have the TV's optical output feeding digital audio to my AV receiver, but there's a 2-3 second lag between when the video plays and the digital audio starts. When watching cable it's not a big deal since it only does this when the cable box initially is selected as a source. But if I'm watching Hulu Plus, the sync issue happens every time the feed switches between the program and the commercials.So coming out of commercial I lose the first 2-3 seconds of dialog from the program I'm watching.

Thanks.

You're probably talking about clouding issues. example (357)
If you just got the TV give it a few days and see if it disappears, I had a similar situation with mine, if it doesn't then you might need an entire new set.

Thats exactly what I see, only really visible in the bottom left hand corner!
post #230 of 850
That effect unfortunately is very common with edge-lit LED TVs, its a by product of that particular type of backlighting.
Its called clouding or flashlighting on dark screen images.
Only recommended way to minimize it is to reduce the backlight setting to as low as 5 since its worse at the higher settings.
Can vary between different panels, a luck of the draw perhaps.

I just bougt my first TV (UN55ES6100) and i have a few questions about setup and configuration, so any help will be appreciated. I will use TV only for watching HD or SD material connected through HDMI cable to my PC (all of my movies and series are stored here).

1) Is there any difference between HDMI inputs behind TV --- HDMI1(ARC), HDMI2 (DVI) and HDMI3 (on right side)? Reminder, i want to connect TV and my PC, so which one should I use (see picture).

700

2) Once that i connect TV and PC how should i name it since i will use it only for watching HD or SD material connected through HDMI cable to my PC? I found out that if i named it PC i can't have movie picture mode. So how did you named it? For all possibilities see image below.

225

3) Since i don't have the money right now for surround system i have only two options. Use TV speakers or my computer speakers Logitech X-540 (i know they are not much). Which speakers should i use?

http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Surround-Speaker-System-Subwoofer/dp/B000JJM8XE

4) This question is for those people who use TV speakers. What sound settings do you use on your TV?

5) For those who watch 3D content. What 3D settings do you use?

6) Right now i am watching Star Trek DS9 NTSC and i don't know which refresh rate shoud i set in Catalyst Control Center?

NTSC → refresh rate?
PAL → refresh rate?
all HD material → is 24 refresh rate right?

7) Do i have to Edit name for HDMI every time/depending which material am i watching? Or i can use only one name?

PAL or NTCS → example name DVD

Bluray, HDDVD or encode → example name PC or Bluray

7) I'm not able to get smooth 1080P@24 playback when watching Blu-rays. I use TMT3 and TMT5. Am i forgeting some software (for example Reclock) or some setting in TMT?
Is it possible that i am hvaing this probleme because:
- my PC is 5 and a half years old and HDD was in use more then 1000 days
- HDMI cable is 10 meters long?

OK just an update... I think I've resolved my clouding issue. I just set the LED backlight to 10. No more clouding.. Picture is great!

I may be crazy here but I feel that samsung should not peg the backlight setting for a default setting. IMHO it really isnt needed. Dynamic settings seemed washed out to me.
post #233 of 850
Totaly agree, I had to adjust my settings to get a proper image. However after adjustment, I'm very happy with PQ.

Cheers

1) No difference in regards to what YOU will use them for.
2) Naming doesn't really matter except for the one called PC in that it eliminates TV processing (AMP, Noise Filtering, etc..) to give you less lag.
3) (OPINION) TV speakers are not great but I think you should use them and save the money so that you can buy a nice surround system.
4) (OPINION) I use movie mode because to me, it sounds clearer.
5) I didn't think this set supported 3D.
6) 24 is not the refresh rate, but the frames per second. The refresh rate should be set to 120 Hz.
7) You can leave it as whatever, it doesn't matter (See Answer 2)
8) Understand that 1080/24p will not be completely smooth as it is a very slow frame rate. Natural choppiness is inherent. You can try two things: A) Set the Auto Motion Rate to Clear or Smooth and see if that suits you, or B) Turn Auto Motion Rate OFF and let the set do a proper 5:5 pulldown (repeats every frame 5 times, 5x24 = 120 HZ.)

Hope this helps.

*EDIT* Disregard #5, just found out it is in fact 3D.

This tv is 3d? I just picked up the 46" and didn't think it had 3d.

So far enjoying the tv, have it hooked up to an XBox as a media extender from my HTPC with a ceton card tuner. So far looks great, using the settings in post #168 of this thread... will continue to tweak them along the way. Information in this thread has been great keep it coming!!!
post #236 of 850
weird thing... i have noticed 4 clouding spots while watching at night, but it seems to be just with some movies, not with all of them?
Is that possible? There are 2 spots in the bottom middle, and 2 slighty above that.
The weird thing is that in some movies, the black doesn't seem real black and i see the screen is lighted, so i see the clouding, but e.g. in the latest Falling Skies episode, there were a lot of night scenes with darkness and i paid close attention to the same position, but didn't see anything. But here the black was REALLY black, as opposed to the movie where it looked more like "bad quality black".

Could it be possible that video quality also has smt to do with these clouding spots?

Why don't you try it, and report back here to let us all know what you thought of it.

I am learning more and more about my 1 day old 60ES6100 having read some of the threads in the forum today.
