It was an issue I believe with the F7100 series as well. A firmware updated and I believe it solved the problem. Maybe it has to do with the new firmware update.

+1 I wirelessly stream full bluray rips from my NAS including 1080P 3D...no issues.

Wireless performance is hit or miss with certain routers. I have the Asus N66U. If I HAD an issue, I certainly would have ran the cord up but instead I preferred to have that rooms network cord run to my xbox-- dont want any gaming lag smile.gif

New to the Samsung 60f8000 and looking for best settings both for setup and PQ.

Current equipment
Denon 4311ci, Dish 722 receiver, Xbox 360, Sony blu ray. Everything this connected to the Denon which I have 2 cables running out to the Display. I have the Samsung hooked up wired Ethernet also.

I like watching TV, Movies, sports, and such what settings are best for PQ and to handle sports/action best without SOE?

Also how can I set it that my xbox360 automatically goes to game mode? Hdmi 3?

Also not into 3d much at all.

For Game Mode on HDMI 3. Just turn the Xbox 360 on, switch over to HDMI 3. Go into Menu > System > General > Game Mode > On. Now it'll remember to use game mode only on HDMI 3. Also remember to set in the picture options to only apply the settings to the source and not all sources. That way you can customize the picture settings for each input. As far as picture settings go, it's all preference unless you want it calibrated. I will say do NOT set brightness any higher than 45, anything else raises the black level. Any gamma above 0 will raise the black level as well. I would just pop in a BluRay and play with the settings until you find something that suits your eye. Note that Dynamic and Natural picture modes CRUSH shadow detail and I do not recommend them. Stay in Standard Mode or Movie Mode.

As far as "ethernet" cables are concern Cat. 6e is the most recent "usable" choice.

True , Cat 7 , with it`s 40 GB speed maybe better , but who has 40 GB internet.

I do believe that although commercially available , Cat 7 is over kill.

Cat 5 will still work fine , if you want future prof , go Cat 6.

Cat 6 will be fine for any commercial speed for years to come.

I have changed from Cat 5 to Cat 6 , I don`t plan on buy more Cat cables , well maybe one more Cat 6 , I still have an open port on my router !!

2 things.

1. I know I've read in the thread that you can change the name of the source or input. Like name it xbox or ps3. But I don't see a way to type it in.

2. I've had the tv for 3 days. Apps worked great like HBOGO. However updated to new software last night and most of the apps are gone. Including HBOGO.
I remember someone else had this issue. Was there a work around?

3. The stand. My tv stand that it is on is perfectly level. But the tv tilts toward the back maybe 5 or 10 degrees. I know I assembled the stand correctly. Anyone else notice this?

Thanks

My stand totally does the same thing. I just left it. Seems ok. I just got used to it. But I did notice it too.
post #2798 of 6823
The stand on the F8000 is designed to tilt back , IT IS NOT A DESIGN FLAW , the 8000 is so thin and Samsung knew that most users were not going to use the provided cords to attach it to the wall,

So to help stabilize the TV and to prevent "tip-over" possibility , a tilt to the design was made as a "passive" safety feature.

Geez , and I thought I was picky !! LOL biggrin.gif

Seriously , some like the tilt some don`t , I like it , it is kind of reassuring that I am not going to wake up in the middle of the night after hearing a crash only to find my F8000 in pieces.

If it is going to be in pieces , I want to have the pleasure of doing so myself !! biggrin.gif

Hey, do these new led and plasma tvs still require a burn in time? I was reading some older posts about best buy tv adjustment and requiring a 100hr burnin before scheduling an appointment?

Plasmas are always recommended to have a break in period of some sort. Some say 100HR of slides and then and some say up to 300HR or more before having it calibrated. LCD/LED has a very small break in period if any compared to a plasma. If you have a LCD/LED I would say schedule your calibration when you get your TV and by the time the calibrator gets the chance to do your set you will have watched it enough to have it calibrated properly. Just my 2 cents biggrin.gif

Still hoping you can help me with the front-to-back measurement of the stand on the 75" F8000. Got to build a new shelf before the new set arrives.

Thanks!!

So is this corner flash lighting acceptable/normal with the 60f8000, Seems to be most noticeable in the lower left hand corner.

You're off angle a bit to the right so the left side's black level is higher than it should be. I'd look at it more from head on and about 8 feet back. It should look much better.

I will try again tonight, what's the best screen/mode to check flashlighting/clouding with?

Hey Guys,

I am about to take delivery of a new UN65F8000 in about two hours. This will be the first time I have went past 55" on a TV. I sold my UN55D8000 to my girlfriend's dad and I am awaiting delivery today. Since it is a new month. I will see what kind of panel they give me and hopefully it is good one as I do not want to have to exchange out constantly, but it will be on their dime if I do. I have read through most of the post here and will be using Buzzard's setting as well as trying out eagle's modified settings of Buzzards. I am praying everything goes well. Any pointers or advice would be greatly appreciated!! So far, I have been from a UN46B8000, to a UN46C8000, to a UN55D8000, and now will start my journey to a UN65F8000. I love my D8000 and wish I could keep it, but I have no room in my bedroom for it. I have a 32EH4003 in there and it works out perfectly as I do not watch much TV in there unless I am upstairs doing work or in bed.

Congrats JSteel, you will love the set. And things happen with all technology and I advise if you can get an extended warranty. I am having issues with both of my Samsung sets and the only thing I can be happy about is that I got the extended warranty.

Do you game? There have been a couple members who have also gotten the 65f8000 and had bad tearing issues with the set. I would be interested to hear if you have the same tearing problem.

That's about what both my sets look like....Its an LCD issue that will always be present with edge lit sets.

Your panel looks about identical to mine. Flash lighting barely visible in the bottom right and slightly more visible in the bottom left. Of course slightly lighter on the right and left edges as that's where the LEDs are, but I couldn't be happier. I had the es8000 before the f8000 and that is the first time I have ever noticed flashlighting since it was so bad. I then took a look at my 5 yr old ccfl Sony and saw slight flashlighting for the first time. The truth is it happens on every LCD. If you can be a little less critical, and sit back and enjoy the rest of this almost flawless panel, you'll be fine. ( I have a TS01 panel btw, I've heard nothing but good things about it and was afraid to exchange it and get a sharp panel).

I was one of them with the tearing issue on GameMode. The problem has been resolved with my replacement.

Anyone managed to overclock the TV to take native 120hz signal from PC?
from what ive seen Sonys models can do it but havent heard of a samsung that can, hopefully someone can check it out?
post #2813 of 6823
I have a Youtube app problem. My first F8000/65 would play youtube videos I would launch from my ipad. While I would watch TV or play a game, I could browse a video from my ipad, click 'Play on Youtube TV' button, then the F8000 would automatically launch the Youtube app and play the video.

With my replacement F8000/65, I have to manually start the Youtube app on the samsung Smart TV screen before I can play videos from my ipad.

Any advise?

Hey Merkey,

Thanks! I do not game much at all, but will start in a little bit. I can see in a test trun to make sure everything is working good. Well I have the TV hooked up and running and for some reason I am not happy. I love the picture and size, but there are some things that I am questioning and may have to exchange for a new another one. I notice that the panel version is TS01 and I cannot tell when it was manufactured as there is no date I can find on the TV. I updated the firmware and everything seems good. Blacks are amazing and the picture is stunning. Now to the problems I see with my current set is that the UN65F8000 has a curve to it. If you were to look at the bottom of the TV and look from one side see all the way down the TV, there is a curve to the where right in the center it peaks towards the back, and then curves back forward at the other side of the TV. Does anyone else have this problem? Also, I have vertical banding that is noticeable when shots are panning on the screen. Is that normal for this size TV? These issues are really bugging me. I want to make sure that these discrepancies are common or if I need to get the set exchanged out. Anyone's help would be greatly appreciated. I will have pictures of the curve a little bit. Thanks guys for you help!

I am having a hard time deciding on what tv to buy.. i found the un75f6400 online new for $2500 and the un65f8000 for $2100.... wondering should i go for size or better quality????
post #2816 of 6823
I have a similar choice. Although the wife even said in best buy that she thought the F8000 looked way better. Probably how best buy had them calibrated I suppose..

Here are the pictures and do you think this warrants an exchange?

This also happens to me (I also have DirecTV). Yes the screen is going black, but what's really happening is that the TV is re-establishing the connection to the source, i.e., the banner saying the source and resolution comes on as well. It's similar to a handshake issue. I thought it may've been a D* issue, but someone with FiOS posted the same problem so it's something with the Sammy. For me it doesn't happen every time and when it does, it's also within the 5 minutes of turning on the set and it only happens once in a viewing session. Hopefully Samsung fixes the issue, but I guess I won't hold my breath.

Why do led/lcd's need a break in period? I thought led/lcd's do not get burn in, only plasma.

thanks

Do you mean dynamic contrast or dynamic mode? You will loose shadow details. Turning contrast high in your calibration may clip whites but most calibrations I've see are 94-100 especially for 3D.

I meant dynamic contrast.
