thnx for your help.

I don't think the resolution the STB is outputting is the problem - that shouldn't change the colors.

All I can think of is that the compression from the STB could be causing a minor green tinge. I've noticed that skin and hair sometimes gets a greenish color on compressed videos.

I have tweak some settings after keep on my TV for 1 hour.

I reduced G -offset and G- gain values. Now greenish tone has mostly gone, but Reddish tone becomes visible on hair of people sometimes. eek.gif

I think I have to adjust myself to this kind of picture. LOL. biggrin.gif

I have to say I think you are unlikely to be successful, as the HDMI will also be expected to be the sound source. You either need to upgrade the PC to HDMI, or use an analogue video connection to go with the sound.

Exactly as highlighted above.

I thought it might be possible somehow but I'm beginning to think otherwise..

What I might need to do is swap around my existing monitor (Current connected HDMI to HDMI to my GFX card) and the EH5000 to work around the issue.

Thanks for the quick response!

OK, I got my new cable and now the TV works in all pixel formats (4:4:4 ; 4:4:2 and etc.) So I guess the problem really was in the cable smile.gif I haven't had the chance to check it in more detail now and see if the sparkles are also gone, but I assume they'll be gone as well. So now all that's left is to tune the settings and get the perfect picture smile.gif.

Recently, I bought a UE40EH5000W LED TV, I entred service menu (advanced) and activated network and allshare. I patched an intellinet wifi dongle based on the Ralink 3070 chipset and modified the PID/VID to be recognized by samsung TV's. Now the network menu is active, the wifi dongle is recognized, the network is connected and allshare is working great...I want now to activate PVR on this TV, so I entred extended service menu and I activated PVR to on and num of PVR stream to 1 but when I press the record button nothing happen. so please:

1/Do you have any idea on how to activate PVR on this model?
2/What else can I activate on this model
3/do you have any idea if the flash of this TV can accept the EH5300 firmware (when changed to that model in the service menu)

The EH5000w firmware is T-MST9DEUC (about 37 Mo), and the EH5300w firmware is T-MST10PDEUC (about 147 Mo)

Thank you very much.
post #1146 of 2169
Well mine is a UE40EH5300 and from what I've read we do have the PVR but it's disabled in the service menu (while in the US it's enabled). All you have to do for the 5300 is to enable it and then to use it you need an external HDD as far as I understood it doesn't work with a USB Flash Drive. Still I haven't tried this myself just what I read on the internet. Anyway a question from me - I connected my TV to the internet by the following method - I have 2 LAN cards on my PC so I used 1 cable from the 2nd card to the TV and used Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing. It worked fine - I can access youtube at least. But I've got a problem with the All Share - I share something on my PC in example located in F:\Folder ; so on the TV I open up all share, then it shows F:\ - I open it, after that it shows the Folder - but when I click to open the folder it returns this message: "Request cannot be completed. MEDIA PLAY will return to the main screen" and then it goes back to the AllShare home screen. I've tried disabling my AV and Firewall if that's the problem but it doesn't seem to make any change. The TV is in the allowed devices in AllShare and should have access to all shared folders but I've no idea why it doesn't work.. If I use the preset folders that ALLShare gives me for Pictures/Video - and I copy there what I want to access - then it works. But if I add folders from other places then they TV gives me the above-mentioned error.
p.s. speaking of the service menu can anyone give some directions on how to enter the advanced service menu? I read previously that you can enter it when you enable the HOTEL mode but It doesn't seem to work even with hotel mode enabled.

The PC is currently connected TV HDMI to PC DVI.

Thanks in advance!

You need to rename the HDMI port to "DVI PC".

Could you please share step by step instruction for the above? SO all other members can activate network and use wifi dongle with this TV..

Thnx in advance.

Who will be the first to dare risk trying it? =:-O
post #1151 of 2169
Even if you could trick it smart firmware are significantly larger than the one on out TV and most likely wont even fit

Also no LAN or WIFI on 5000 so no point

Yep PC Audio out is already connected to external speakers, have tried removing them and connecting TV only, and tried them together. Still no joy.

I reread your first post and realized you mentioned the L/R RCA audio input, not the P2 input, which is the one for what you want.

If you TV doesn't have a P2 audio input, then I think it is not possible.

My 32EH5000 arrived today, not checked the panel yet. 279UKP from John Lewis with 5 year shop guarantee (could have got one from Tesco for 249UKP with 2 years). Apart from anything else, it means I have a reference system for supporting the existing out-stationed 32EH5000 when the user has trouble.

I have a problem that I cannot seem to find the answer too. I am using an asus laptop. and a UA32eh5306 TV. They are connected via HDMI. The gpu in the laptop is a geforce gtx 260m 1gb (it has been used for a samsung 27in 1080p TV before with no problems).

I am getting no picture on the TV. The laptop is detecting it, and I can drag windows over to the blank screen. However the TV is not detecting any sort of connection. "There is no device connected."

The audio also did not work from the laptop to TV via HDMI. I feel I have exhausted all my resources trying to fix this, any help would be greatly appreciated since I bought this TV with the intention of its primary use being a 2nd monitor.

Thanks!

My problem is this. I have an Asus laptop with a GeForce GTX 260M. I bought the Samsung UA32eh5306.

They are connected via HDMI but the TV is telling me "there is no device connected," when I try to bring up the extended display on the TV,

However, the laptop is recognising it. I can even drag windows over to the blank screen. Audio doesn't work via HDMI either. It is set at its native resolution of 1920x1080. As is the laptop too.

I have used this laptop with a previous Samsung 27in 1080p model and had no issues.

I have tried the HDMI cord for my PS3, it didn't work. But the TV did connect with the PS3.

All drivers are up to date.

Any ideas for this problem would be fantastic, considering I bought this TV to use primarily as a 2nd monitor.

Thanks!

TV (just a guess): have you selected PC for that input?

Sound: have you selected HDMI as a sound output on the PC? (however, if the TV is refusing to display the PC video, it is unlikely to be taking sound either)
post #1162 of 2169
i have done some more testing, looks like it could be the HDMI port on my laptop. used another laptop any everything worked fine. the gpu itself is fine, as the laptop can still run in 1080p. any ideas on fixing/cleaning the port?
post #1163 of 2169
I had a similar problem myself. From the Video Card settings try changing the pixel format to 4:2:2 - my TV worked only that way, doesn't matter if I renamed the HDMI to PC. The problem turned out to be a bad cable. But even if your HDMI port is bad (which you cant fix as easy as a bad cable) you can try it in 4:2:2 it might work.

I unpacked my UE32EH5000 today, and what d'ya know - a LAN port, and during set-up it offered to configure the network (I don't have one plugged in).

What's different about my '5000?
post #1165 of 2169
I own a UN40EH5000

So I explored the 'Advanced' setting menu. There is the ability to turn of Dynamic Dimming on all TV settings/inputs, you just have to do it from the menu on the input you want it off. I mention this because chicolom mentioned there were some settings where this option was unable to be disabled - or was grayed out (implying it was off) but would still occur.

I also saw a setting for Anynet+; which I don't recall being specified as supported by the TV.

Nothing else of interest (as in WiFi or other special settings), and the Expert menu requires a Samsung Factory Remote; or a universal remote that can accept HEX codes (my can't, Harmony 300i).

As for the talk about about enabling WiFi - it could possibly be done theoretically assuming the UN40EH5000 has a large enough flash chip to hold the higher model's firmware (and then you flash that firmware) and then use one of the mentioned WiFi dongles (I have one of the models mentioned that can be hacked to act as a Samsung WiFi dongle, that's why I checked it out). I changed the model of the TV in settings - it does no good without the firmware. I'm not brave enough to be the first to flash the firmware myself; and don't feel like opening up the TV to see how large the Flash Rom chip is. Maybe in a few years when the TV is older - but I just got it this past November.

* A note about the 'Advanced' setting menu - I can only access it after doing a 'Restore to Factory Default' and entering the service menu upon first boot of the TV (and then pressing 0000 with it highlighted). If you turn the TV on first after restoring to defaults without accessing the service menu, it seems not to work (hitting 0000 to make 'Advanced' available). No clue if it's like this for every set, or just mine.

Yeah as you saw, it's named pretty specifically/easy to recognize.

Were you able to enter 'Advanced' without immediately having to do a factory reset, or did you not try and just do like I posted? Just curious is all. If I try without immediately doing a reset, the menu is just blank/nonexistent.
post #1168 of 2169
had to do a factory reset first or else you get blank screen

Any idea what disables the dimming?
It doesn't seem to be dynamic dimming i still notice dimming on dark wallpaper
When researching online everyone seems to point to dynamic CE but this option is greyed out
Edited by demo23019 - 3/22/13 at 8:21am
post #1169 of 2169
Once in 'Advanced', Adjust>Dynamic Dimming ('On' is default).

Dynamic CE is grayed out on my end too - I have to reformat my HTPC then calibrate the screen - I'll try **** out and let you know.
post #1170 of 2169
so it is Dynamic Dimming
i notice a change when watching TV but still noticed on my dark PC wallpaper in regular mode

http://i.imgur.com/PKY23Oj.jpg

the whites get dull but if i pop up the input or settings menu the letters get bright again.

And in service menu for my PC HDMI it says dynamic dimming is disabled
