post #1351 of 2035

hello, i apologize now for the noob question but i just picked this TV up and really enjoy it so far. I have it hooked up through a comcast box and my computer with HDMI. First how do i select a higher framerate/resolution for different devices? Also i have noticed on this forum about the 'Cloudiness' issue and i am experiencing the same thing from time to time. Any way to resolve this? Lastly, my firmware is currently 1118 and i try to update to 1120 the TV will not update it will just stay at 0% as long as im willing to wait. If i need to return this TV i need to ask sooner then later.

Resolution and frame rate would be selected in the settings of the source device that is feeding your TV.

Update issue could be a network configuration issue. You may want to contact support.

Cloudiness could be a quality control problem, you may want to exchange for another unit.

Every set has some sort of clouding. It's only really a problem if you can actually see it during gaming/dvd/tv playback. You will most likely see it no matter what when the screen goes totally dark during some movie scenes, but you should not be able to see it during partially dark scenes like my pics on page 38 of this thread. You can try turning down the screen backlight as much as possible and black level up to diminish it.

Let me know if you have questions, I had to go through 3 sets to get one I could live with.

You are actually lucky it didn't let you update.

My 60" 6350 and Samsung F59M Bluray player are from Costco.  I was hoping the 2 devices have an Ethernet channel - -  the Blu player is hardwired but the 6350 doesn't recognize a hardwire Ethernet connection from the Blu player (the HDMI cable is a 10-ft 28awg Monoprice w/ Ethernet & ARC) - - this is to avoid cabling 10-ft Cat 6 to the HDTV since my Bu player is 2 feet from the RJ45 jack.

My AnyNet+ on both Samsungs are "on" -  any suggestions ?  Thanks.

I have the UN65F6300 and have a Blu-Ray player connected via HDMI and also my older Denon 2900 (a great 480p player) connected via component. My question is: for the Denon 2900, should I be outputting 480p or 480i to the TV? Which produces a better image on the TV? This Samsung TV replaces a calibrated Mitsubishi 65 inch RPTV.

AFAIK, neither the TV nor the Blu ray passes or receives Ethernet via the HDMI ports. You will need a Cat5/6 cable

I should consider myself lucky (knocks on wood) as I do not have any (that I can see) clouding but I do have a 'smidgen' of the flashlighting in the corner areas.
It's really not that bad though since I really only see any of it when the screen is completely Black. I cant really see it at all when watching the the darkest of movies.
I bought my UN55F6300 (WH04) from Best Buy ($997) last weekend. I haven't been able to get the PQ I'm looking for but I'm pretty close.
I used settings from others here then did some tweaking. I plan on doing a little more then leaving it be. Not sure you can ever be satisfied.

I use the Plex app to stream movies from my PC and one thing I wish I could do is have the app act like a different source so I could make PQ changes.
I'm not a fan of the 'soap opera effect' but others in the house are. They feel it gives it a 3D effect so I have limited this effect so things aren't 'flat' but I have yet to find a settings(s) that eliminates judder when that effect is in full.

The audio is pretty weak but that's what sound bars and receivers are for.

Overall I am happy since my DLP ended up looking like the Milky Way few months ago.

Thanks, disappointing though; as the 6350 has streaming, at least only the HDTV benefits from hardwire.  We both have the same hardware except for screen size  .  .   .   lived in Sunnyvale until the great recession forcing a relo to the Wash DC area.

The F6350 isn't a FALD panel is it? OP says its backlit LED.. but everywhere im reading this panel shows as Edge-lit

When playing games on our Xbox 360, the audio sounds great--nice and full.  When I switch to watching TV (HDMI connection to computer running Windows Media Center) or a Blu-ray (component connection to Panasonic BD player), the sound is quiet and quite distant.  I have to turn the volume up quite high--to 40 or so--and the sound is not full at all.  It sounds like you're listening in a shoebox--no real sound quality at all.

 

These two components (Media Center and BD player) worked great with our last set--a 2008 Samsung LN46A630.  I called Samsung support yesterday and we did everything you can do through the regular menus--reset the TV to factory settings, played with the different sound settings, etc.  I'm set up for a callback from a level 2 tech, but that won't come until Monday or Tuesday.

 

Does anybody have experience with an issue like this?  Is there a hidden setting that is set wrong, did I receive a bad unit, or is the sound quality just that poor (I can't see this one being the answer, though)?  I haven't had much time to watch this particular set, but I plan on taking a good look tonight to see how the cloudiness is when watching movies, etc. and just giving it a good evaluation.

 

I'm curious on everybody's thoughts...

mw73, I have a similar setup as yours and was having the same problem until my wife made some changes while I was away on business.  Similar to you, my feed originates from a HTPC running Windows Media Center and I view it on my TV through use of an xBox 360 as a WMC extender.  I run an ethernet cable from my WMC server to my xBox 360 then a HDMI cable from my 360 to my 75f600.  

 

My wife couldn't recall exactly what she did to produce the improvement but she suggested trying the following:

 

1. Adjust the surround sound setting

 

2. Adjust the setting to enhance voice

 

3. Adjust the auto volume

 

To be honest, the improvement isn't exponential but it is noticeable. Now I only play the TV volume around 30 instead of 70.  We are installing a set of surround sound home theater speakers so things should get even better soon.  Nonetheless, play around with those things and let us know how it works for you.  Good luck.

HDMI + Ethernet does not seem to be very common. You could always get an Ethernet switch to add ports.

Panasonic's proprietary video chip sets and many of the mid-line blu-ray's do a good job with upscaling & deinterlacing 480i DVD's (that why my Oppo DVD is stored in the garage).  I would give up the Denon if your Blu-ray player is decent.

Since your 6300 is fixed pixel, it will have have to upscale and/or deinterlace any input your Denon hasn't done with a 480i source material to get to 1080p which is required for your HDTV.  Why not let the 6350 do all the necessary conversion and just let the Denon output the native 480i - -  the exception is that if your Denon is truly outstanding (better) in deinterlacing to progressive and you can output 480p to the TV; your HDTV will always upscale to 1080 since the Denon can't.   You can experiment with both output settings from the Denon -  480i (native) and 480p (deinterlaced), and see for yourself.  Still, I would junk the Denon if your Blu ray is a decent player.

It seems that way; but like ARC, Ethernet Channel is intended to eliminate special purpose cabling.  In my case, I'm running a 10-feet 28awg HDMI cable already to the HDTV and have to run a parallel Cat5/6 wire (and leaving the Blu ray using wi-fi).  The switch is viable, ($25 + cables), but another device that can break down (not commercial grade), AC power, and more wire/cable clutter when the HDMI standard permits a channel.

I've noticed a couple of times, actually maybe it was three times, where I've turned on the TV and the picture was significantly more dark than normal. I'm not sure why, I thought it might have been a sensor but I have eco sensor off. I did have the "App" screen saver set to 2 hours, but I never use apps and turning on the TV should have reset the counter anyway.

At any rate, adjusting the backlight doesn't seem to resolve it and the only way I can get the picture back to normal is just to power cycle the TV.

Maybe this issue is addressed in a future firmware update. I'm still on 1117 and I'm always a little leery of updating firmware. (The only reason I went to 1117 was to fix my input lag amount in comparison to what everyone else was getting.)

I wish I could read release notes on the newer firmwares, but the website only has 1117 posted, so out of luck there.

I guess I should just bite the bullet and upgrade through the TV to see if the problem ever happens again.

The Motion Lighting setting under Picture - Advanced affects the brightness as well. Try turning that off if you haven't.

Definitely have that off. I have all extra stuff off as I run this TV in Game mode 100% of the time.

The only other thing I can think of is doing a full reset. I know the first time I upgraded the software things seemed off until I did so. I don't have any fancy calibration settings on my tv so I do a full reset with each update now and never have any issues.

Anyone here use any WD TV media player , specifically the HUB version?
I hooked mine up today and my settings are in no need to change (HDMI for video and Optical for audio) but I am getting sync issues when I never did on my WD60C9
I tried many files that I have played in the past and I cant figure it out. I probably wont use it since I use the PLEX app but now that I noticed it my OCD wont forget it until I fix it despite probably never using it on this TV.

Somewhere back in this thread someone asked if the total power-on hours out-of-box could be accessed. It does.

**Caution: accessing the Service Menu does wipe out all user-entered settings, so be ready with your cheat sheet when turning it back on.**

With the TV off, press MUTE 1-8-2-POWER on the remote.

TV turns on with the Service Menu displayed.

The 4th menu item from the top is labelled "SVC."

Select and open that, and look for "Panel Display Time," the 2nd entry from the top.

There it is, in hours.

To exit the Service Menu, turn the TV off, then back on.

Used on my UN55F6300.

Anybody have any picture settings for viewing sports?  Football/Basketball games 50" led smart tv

 

Thanks

post #1373 of 2035
Guys --

Question. I bought the 60" 6350 from Costco last night. However, when I attempted to put my "old" Sony bracket on the back of the TV. My bolts weren't "long" enough to securely it in the back. So I went to the local store, bought longer bolts but now they're too long.

So (could be a stupid question) what size bolts do I need? I checked the manual and unless I miss something...I don't see the size.

Much thanks!!

I used sodaboys settings for the most part, coupled with some xbox one calibrations. I can post my exact setup when I get home, but even the game mode settings outside of game mode look very good. Just set the picture mode to movie when not in game mode

Anyone using wireless headphones with this? I would really like to get a set for my husband. His first preference would be to plug a transmitter into the TV and then have a small receiver on his belt or something where he could plug in standard headphones. If that wouldn't work, he would use RF or BT headphones.

 

What are my options for connecting wireless headphones (what kinds of output options on the TV can I use)?

 

Does anyone have personal experience with any set of wireless headphones that are working well with this TV?

 

Thanks!

post #1378 of 2035

I've had this TV for one day and I've had a heck of a time getting the ARC and CEC to work reliably. I posted more details in a separate thread before discovering this owner's thread:

http://www.avsforum.com/t/1515656/samsung-smart-tv-un40f6300-unreliable-hdmi-arc

 

Are there any tricks involved in this to make it work as expected?

Responding to myself here, but we ordered a TosBlue X BT transmitter and LG HBS730 headphones. They both support aptX and the transmitter supports both optical audio and 3.5 mm inputs. I think this combo will work well ...
