EH5300 - it looks like with Allshare and this TV, .flv files cannot be played. Is that so?
post #1262 of 2167
I don't know for sure, but that would be par for the course.

Love my EH5300 and here's why...
Indiana University Music graduates my wife and I love to connect to our roots. Last night they streamed the Verdi Requiem live. Rather than watch on our computer screens I copied the URL to a flash drive and imported it to the UN46EH5300. It was incredible watching it on a 46" rather than 17" screen and sounded fantastic playing through the home theater. Yes I know the browser is nowhere near as fast as those in our computers but with our 30 Mb connection it played with just two hangs in an hour and a half. Thanks Samsung for enabling a wonderful evening.

I successfully set up a USB wireless Keyboard and mouse on my EH5300. I need to login to my existing Netflix account, but can't seem to get any response using the keyboard. Is there a hot key or something I have to press to activate the mouse and keyboard? If not, how do I bring up the on-screen keyboard?

That doesn't sound very successful to me! LOL

To pay it forward, here's the basic calibration I arrived at for my UN40EH5300 with HH02 panel, using chicolom's settings as a starting point.

I Just bought the exact same TV from Best Buy on 4/18 HH02 panel. Is there any other panel option in this size? Should I be worried? I have been fiddling with the settings since then and can't seem to get it dialed in just right. Everything looks gray to me and the colors lack depth. Not sure if it is all in my head or not. I will test your settings when I get home tonight to see if they help.

Curious what your opinion of this set is after a week of ownership.

I am replacing a 32 inch Samsung from 2005 (don't remember the model right now) so I am sure this is a huge improvement over that without nitpicking the details. I paid 1800 back in 2005 for the 32" and just 499 for this one crazy how the prices have changed. Anyway I have it connected to my Yamaha RX-V571 receiver for all inputs to the HDMI 1 connection on the set. Selected the Movie move first after turning it on because I knew that would disable most of the processing. Over all it looks great at that mode but I can't get over some scenes looking just so grey and then how it picks and chooses so to say how black things look from scene to scene. I guess I will take some getting used to. I have a Samsung 50" DLP as my main set and maybe I am so used to watching that, that this one is distracting me.

My biggest gripe is the Glossiness of the screen. I like to watch in a bright room and my lighting is behind me and it reflects off the screen really bad. Other than that I would say it is an improvement over my old 32" and my first LED backlight set. I think I am not used to how LED lights running all non-LED sets for so long.

My other issue is with the Aynet / HDMI Control. Since I have everything connected to a receiver no sound comes through the TV. I have the SDIF connected to the receiver and HDMI control will switch automatically when I use the Smart-Hub apps so I can get sound for Netflix etc. However when I power on the set using my Harmony it switches the sound to TV when it boots up when no apps are running so I have no sound until I switch the receiver manually back to the primary input. Anyone else experience this. It is great when it switches at the right time but a pain when every time I turn it on it swaps the sound wrong.

Sorry for all the info at once but I have been playing with this thing all weekend and can be a a bit OCD hehe. I welcome any feedback from the community.

If the TV isn't used too much for being showcased at the store, choose the 6100 and don't think twice. Native 100/120Hz panel, 3D, picture quality is awesome, lots of calibration tools to mess around, etc.

.

Did you look at the numbers on boxes?

The low/mid range boxed TVs should be out on showroom floor on shelves above displayed TVs.
Can go threw that shouldn't be your only option since samsung makes their own 40 panels. Ive3 gone to bestbuy and notices they had more than one option for panel types when looking at boxes for individual models.

Try my calibration settings. About the receiver, why use SPDIF if it has HDMI? Set its source name to sound receiver or something like that, the on sound settings set to external.

When I bought it there was only one on the shelf so not many options to go through. I might go back today and see if there are more there.

I could not get sound to come from the apps any other way. My Receiver is ARC compatible but I could not get sound to come from the set until I connected the SPDIF cable. Does this set support ARC I could not find it anywhere in the settings.

I have recently bought a UE46EH6030 with a Samsung Panel.
Does someone have a recommended picture setting or a calibrated TV?
I wish i had a bigger TV set, in Germany you can only buy the next bigger size is UE50EH5300.
I know the drawbacks of the 5 Sereis, i would loose 3D and the 120hz panel, is it worth the risk?
I ma satisfied with the Samsung panel.

No it doesn't support ARC unfortunately. So the problem here is the receiver not setting the right input when you turn on the tv or the tv not setting the right output?

In my opinion the EH5300 is a better TV overall. The only downsides are lower refresh rate and no 3D, but other than that it is better and has internet capabilities.

Website says the two stores in my area are out of stock. Bummer can't go hunting. Hopefully more come in soon. I bought the 5 year Geek Squad on it so hopefully they will let me exchange down the road.

Its funny it comes on in the correct input but once the TV finishes its HDMI handshake and the pictures comes on it flips the reciever to the SPDIF. If I enter the Smart Hub go to the store then exit it flips back but that takes a while. Manually switching the reciver fixes it as well its just an annoyance I guess. Poorly implemented feature frown.gif

Hm, the 6030 has no internet capabilities but has a LAN connection and a DLNA client. Thats sufficient for me.
But does the ue50eh5300 still the panel lottery?

You're wrong. Some Tvs have a native 100/120Hrz panel.

Yes, it has the panel lottery thing, but don't be afraid because all of the panel types could be good panels and some considered not as good as others have other advantages like a wider viewing angle. Buy one, if it has problems like blue ghosting return it.

This really annoys me. I mean they use the same model number but realistically its not the same set. These TVs ARE the panel. How can they sell them as the same TV but use completely different parts? It make no sense to me.
post #1287 of 2167
Well, under Menu, System, Device Manager, Keyboard, it automatically displayed my USB Keyboard's model number. Same thing for the mouse, so I assumed they were set up successfully. What am I missing here?

I totally agree with you but what can we do? Well, technically it gives you a reason to return the tv if you're not satisfied since your could be expecting the quality you saw in the same TV with another panel. Legally they can use other panels, but because of that you also have the legal right to return it.

Does your keyboard works with other apps like the web browser or the smart hub?

I guess your right but it creates a lot of work for the consumer. Returning TVs time after time just to find the "right" one. Why would Samsung use other manufacturers panels if they make their own? Is there some economics to this I am not aware of?
