(ver.1029.2)
Apr 18, 2013

You're already on 1029.2. The update thru the tv set was months ago. All Samsung did now was just post it to their website. I wish I had stayed with 1027. Not happy with the changes that came with 1029.....definetly wasn't an improvment in picture quality in my book.
post #2583 of 2849
i dont think so bc i never do the ONLINE Update method and i had an update before 1029.2 i had 1029

When I updated from 1027 over the air it showed me that the update ready to be installed was 1029.2. After the install, and even now when I check which verison my tv has, it lists 1029.

"No new updates avaliable" over the air shows up when I check now. Prior to 1029.2 showing up on samsung website, the last update on their site was 1027.2 which I used USB method to update. I'm pretty sure others who've done the update can vouch that there was no just 1029 update but was in fact 1029.2 just the tv displays it now as 1029 after installation.

I owned the ES6500 for a minute, but it was a terrible dark room performer and had severe overdrive trailing. I game about 90% of the time, so overdrive trailing is an issue on slower panels. Since the ES7100 has a native 240hz panel does anyone have any experience with this display and gaming? If it is good my wife will inherit the LG and I will return to Samsung. Thanks for any response.

Works great for gaming. Just need to make sure you are on "game mode" or there will be some lag for sure. The game mode is kind of hard to find in the menu.

Im really glad the exchange seems to have worked out for you. Looking forward to jumping over to the new F7100 thread. I hope this thread continues on as well. Ill also drop by from time to time since I did own the ES7100 long enough to provide suggestions for others. Best wishes to all of the ES TV owners...

Lag is less a concern than overdrive trailing causing dark areas on screen to streak when panning in game camera, think of it as a bad visual acid trip.

Do the Samsung's ES units pass 5.1 audio thru the optical out or just PCM or stereo?

If I stream a movie with the ES7100, how do I get the sound to my Denon 2809CI?

There is an toshlink (optical) cable out for sound which transfer the sound in all formats to the receiver.

Would you not be better using HDMI??? because most Denon receivers enhance the video signal with its internal processing. I am presuming that your receiver is relatively new and accepts HDMI imputs

I know my Denon receiver has built in video processing.

I have the Receiver and TV hooked via hdmi. Isn't that for output to the TV only?

Does your AVR support audio return? If it does, that is how you can stream from the TV and get audio.

I went and read Batpig's Denon guide and in there he states that it takes an XX11 receiver to support ARC and my receiver is an XX09 (2809). And there's no mention of ARC in the manual. So I guess I will be using and optical cable to connect to the receiver.

Hi,

Need some help! I have been looking for a Samsung 60 inch model that has the borders of the UN55ES7100 (55 inch). The 60 inch model seems to have a thicker border surrounding the tv. I have seen a 65 inch with the same border so I know they exist, but didn't get the model number.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Todd

I owned a 55 inch and upgraded to a 60 in the ES7100 series there is no difference in the bezel(border) that I could see..

You are looking at a different model or perhaps you are looking at a 2013 model and I do not know if there is a difference in bezel size with the new models.

Check your television models out to make certain you are comparing similar models
post #2602 of 2849
Thank you.

Yes- this is for the F series, 2013 models. I can not find a thin bezel above 55 inches.

Are there any models with this bezel?

Todd

It will pas 5.1 Dolby Digital thru the optical port from TV source or Smarthub sources. It will not pass 5.1 audio from HDMI inputs. For HDMI inputs either use the ARC return on the TV (HDMI #2) or connect your audio source (e.g. Bluray player) directly to your AVR (via optical/coax).

My parents bought a UN60ES7100 last winter. They have mostly been quite happy with the TV but they are having some issues with the apps (specifically Netflix, that is all they ever use). Once you start streaming a movie through Netflix, the remote becomes unresponsive. If you keep mashing buttons you will eventually get the desired result but there is definitely a delay of more than a few seconds. They have a DSL connection which gets around 5Mbps down and .5Mbps up, a bit slow by today's standards (and too slow for netflix super hd), but not terrible. I certainly wouldn't think it would cause the issues that they are experiencing. There is a delay even in adjusting the volume and you have to mash the button several times before it responds. To get around this issue, they have been using the Netflix app on an LG bluray player. It doesn't experience the non-responsive remote issue and the picture appears slightly better. Has anyone else had issues with the remote when using apps? I've checked the TV software and it is up to date. I'm not certain if there is a way to update individual apps. The wireless signal is strong for other devices in the room but I don't know if the TV itself has a signal strength meter. The remote also has these problems on the Youtube app but it does not seem quite as bad. The Youtube app buffers a lot anyway, both on the tv and Blurary player. Both devices seem unwilling to lower the picture quality to get rid of buffering. This is not a big issue for my parents though. I've also tried to show my parents how to use Allshare to view pictures saved on their computer on the Smart TV, but the connection seems to drop out a lot - this just on our local network. The Allshare problem makes me wonder if maybe it is a router issue but that really shouldn't freeze the volume on Netflix. Either this is an isolated issue, or Samsung still has a lot of work to do on apps.

I have had the same problem at times. I assume the batteries are new or fresh in the remote

Un plug the TV wait 30 seconds and re connect. What you want to do is update the smart TV browser and this can be done automatically by un plugging the set. The picture settings should not change.

If you call Samsung they will assist you free of charge but the first thing they will do is update the firmware then assist you. There are complaints that the most recent firmware update 1029 will change the appearance of the picture quality.

Try the unplugging the tv first other members of the forum may be forthcoming with other suggestions.

On the Netflix issue you can go into your account and reduce the super HD to a lower setting. I changed my settings by accessing my account through my computer I do not believe you can do it through the TV settings???). The change in the settings will reduce the buffering/conductivity issues and reduce the picture quality to some degree.

If you have a problem changing the settings call Netflix and they will assist you.

^^^ Same with the Netflix app. The CPU of this TV is fairly slow and I think when you start streaming it's occupied 100% for some time to build a buffer and until then the remote is ignored.

I also noticed that the bandwidth I measured on the TV is much less then what I get on the rest of the computers in the house, some with very modest capabilities. The ping is 300ms vs. 10ms on the other computers and the download speed is 10Mb/s where the other computers get 20Mb/s. The router is in 802.11g mode and the TV shows 3 bars for the signal strength.
I use speedtest.comcast.net. These results don't affect the streaming from Netflix and my thought is that the CPU is a very slow processor having some hardware acceleration for codecs, otherwise I can't explain how such a slow processor that is struggling with browsing and the internet bandwidth can actually decode compressed videos without huccups.

I'm having an issue where I can only hear audio from HDMI #2. Right now I have a Bluray player and PC I'd like to use with this TV. It doesn't matter which cable or input I use, I only get audio on the TV from whatever is plugged into input #2. When I first got this TV I had my cable box and Bluray player both plugged into HDMI (not sure which inputs), but had never used the player. A month or so later I turn on the TV and there is no sound from my cable box. When I unplugged the power on my cable box and let it reboot the sound would come back until the next time the TV was cycled off then on. A lot of trial and frustration later I thought I had narrowed down the problem to the HDMI cable used for the Bluray player somehow causing this. I had both cable and Bluray audio persisting through multiple power cycles. Then I plugged my PC in and got the no sound thing again. Cut to now, I moved the cable box to the component input and I only get audio from whatever is in #2. Has anybody had an issue like this? I have a surround sound I can try with SPDIF tomorrow to see if there is audio that way. Also to clarify, this problem is only with the 3 HDMI inputs, sound that the TV itself produces (smart hub, menu sounds etc.) can be heard fine.

That is odd. HDMI #2 is the audio-return-channel (ARC) for the other HDMI inputs, but you should be able to hear audio thru the TV speakers via any of the HDMI inputs.

One way to help out with lag on choosing apps and moving around in them is to use the Ipad/Iphone app myTifi Remote. Those problems go away when using that app. Must be some odd issues with the remote?
