I thought it was Dynamic Contrast also. When I turn it off it goes away sometimes and sometimes not. Sometimes I have to turn the TV off and back on. It will go away for awhile then it returns. I also tried calibrating the same settings you supplied (thank you) and the same thing still happens. It appears both on regular TV and when I am streaming through my Blu Ray player and the TV so I don't think it is specific to an input source.

Make a factory reset then calibrate it with those settings again and be sure you don't forget to change all of them because even a single setting could mess the whole picture smile.gif

Question, what exactly is PVR?

Personal Video Recorder. It allows you to record TV broadcasts on an HDD or USB Stick and play them later. It also has features like timeshift, scheduling, etc, and it even records when you have your tv off.

I just bought a EH4003 as a bedroom TV. It's pretty nice. Great for the price, just $280.
Can anyone direct me toward the "best" calibration settings?

Thanks ahead of time! Cheers.

I have tried to active the PVR function (US model) with the directions given, but I do not see the PVR menu anywhere. If someone would be able to help, it would be greatly appreciated.

And sometimes i have the impression that i have clouding. And black does not really seems to be black so it is not darc enough.

Any suggestions for better settings? Or is it just a bad panel?

I'm looking at an EH5300 with the sharp panel and it appears to be the XGen panel. The panel is great, just try some different settings because the same settings will not apply to all panel types or all eyeballs.

Press the red circle button to check if something happens. If nothing happens then you didn't follow the steps to activate pvr well. Try to follow those steps again.

I've tried twice now, but in the service menu the PVR option is not visible. The steps to enter the service menu are also different for the TV I'm trying this with. To enter the service menu on the TV the key sequence is (Mute) (1) (8) (2), instead of (info) (menu) (mute). Again, this is a US model EH5300, so I don't know if that makes a difference.

Is PVR functionality part of the published specifications for your TV? If not, there is no certainty you have it in your firmware revision, even if others have been able to enable it by undocumented methods.

For you to have permission to activate the pvr menu you have to enter the advanced service menu with ruSamsungComunicator as I discribed on the tutorial. List what you have done step by step so I can understand better what you are missing.

Steps taken:
1) Open rusamsung find the TV on the network and allow/accept the prompt on the TV screen.
2) Turn off TV and then close rusamsung in that order.
3) Press (mute) then (1) then (8) then (2) then (power) on the remote. (TV turns on and the service menu is displayed)
4) Start rusamsung
5) Click "Factory" on rusamsung and then click "3speed".
6) Select "Control" and then select "Sub Option" in the TV service menu.
At this time, there is no "PVR" option anywhere on the screen. The screen shows two columns of options, the left column contains 15 options and the right column contains 11 options. At the top is displayed MAIN: Control, MODE: CDTV,RES:1080I

Go to SMART HUB -> CHANNELS -> ALL CHANNELS

There you can add/delete the channels from the list.

I have also bought the same hdtv 32eh 5000 and am very satisfied with the hdtvtest calib settings.
Problem is am not very happy with the viewing angles. Mine is a AUO panel (version AH03) and viewing angle is restricted to 20%. Apart from this the HDMI Black Level setting is grayed out to me even if I am using a HDMI source (HD SAT Cable).
Do you know 1. how to un-gray the HDMI Black Level settings?
2. How do confirm the panel type before unboxing the tv set? I have a good exchange policy but the shop guy wont allow to open each box and check the service menu for panel type:mad:

WHat about the PVR_Num setting on the service menu? Does it show up? If so then change its value to 1. The other setting I think its named PVR Support or PVR Function or even PVR Enable (something like that). Be aware that you can only record Digital Broadcasts (DVB-T or DVB-C), not analogue or any other of the tv inputs.

Please post a link for those hdtvtest calibration settings, I'm curious about them :P.

About the viewing angle, are you talking about the vertical or horizontal viewing angle? I don't have the same panel as yours, I have a Samsung S-PVA panel and the horizontal viewing angle is about 45º on each side, at least that's the impression I have.

Do you even know what HDMI Black Level is? It is only selectable when a device sends a Full RGB Range signal (0-255), most devices only use a limited RGB Range (16-235) and most content is recorded that way too. You should only be worried about the HDMI Black Level when you connect a PC to your TV because a PC uses the Full Range natively (Be sure to connect it to HDMI1 to enable full chroma).

There's no way to know which panel is without turning on the TV AFAIK.

Those settings are very similar to my settings, only difference is the white balance levels are way less aggressive on those. Try my white balance values because the eh5300 on movie picture mode has a huge lack of blue, a lack of green and a large excess of red. If you find any issue or improvements on my white balance values please let me know smile.gif.

EDIT: If your tv environment does not have a constant light amount then I recommend you to set the backlight level to 20 then activating the eco sensor with a minimum backlight of 8 or 10.

Hey guys I specifically made an account asking for help with a problem I am having.

I have had my Samsung UN26EH4000 LED TV for a year now and it really makes my games look pixelated and jaggy through HDMI cable when I go for 720p or 1080p. So I turned off Display Discovery to try and get a resolution closer to the native resolution of my tv which is 1366x768. The closest I could come is 1360x768, however when I do this the Samsung then switches into PC mode I think and disables alot of the functions of the picture setting. Is there ANY way to make it keep the HDMI signal and NOT go to PC mode?

Also when its in PC mode everything becomes blurrier and I have to turn sharpness up instead of to zero like with normal HDMi connection, does that mean I am not getting true HD either?

Thanks for all the help guys.

You've lost me. What is "SMART HUB"? EH5000, nothing I can see on the menus.

I simply don't see any PVR option anywhere. It just may not be available on the version I have. Thank you for the help though, I appreciate the effort.

Your model doesn't have Smart Hub. I have the same model, but use it with my HTPC; so I don't know how to disable channels when you have the TV signal hooked up directly into the TV. Have a look at the manual, I'm sure it's in there.
post #1404 of 2167
Sorry to sound desperate but can anyone help me fix the above problem on my Samsung model?
post #1405 of 2167
are there any known fully compatible (as in no issues) wireless keyboards and mouse for the EH5300F?

Really?

Yes. It's online at the support page for your model.
post #1408 of 2167
Ended up switching out my motion ghosting ChMei EH5000 for the newer F5000 model, and now I'm getting really bad backlight uniformity issues (light spots all over the TV) and a purple/blue motion ghosting on certain scenes! It's a Sharp panel too. UGH, this is getting so frustrating. I just want a TV that looks good!

OK, got it now. The mistake was to go through Menu... Channel instead of Channel List... Tools (and then scroll down for the Delete option to appear). Thanks for the RTFM.
post #1410 of 2167
I had a EH5000 with AUO panel so exchanged it for F5000 which look good in the store, but was worst so again got it exchanged for EH5000 again with AUO panel. Now fighting with Samsung to get the AUO panel replaced with Samsung rolleyes.gif
Wondering when I will be able to enjoy my HDTV. Apart from viewing angles I dont have any issues, and I hear Sony W905 also has the same problem, so I am getting used to it now... sigh
