Warming up a TV brings back memories of tube testers at Thrifty Drugs. Finding a tube tester is pretty impossible these days but when I was a kid they were omnipresent.

And what about the panel lottery? does that exist in this series too?


According to the CNET reviews do not get the 6400 expecting better picture quality than the 6300 they are basically the same and a lot of people find the microdimming annoying because it is not adjustable in most picture modes. The 40, 46, 55 only use Samsung panels in the US as far as I've seen with the newest being TU02.

Thanks. I ordered the Panasonic TC-P60VT60 on sale for $1800 just the other day. It will be a much nicer set than the F6400 I think.

So my 75 inch tv arrived today and I must say its brilliant! I was a little worried as some people experienced torching problems and clouding etc but I must have lucked out as I have none of these issues! Picture quality is great using buzz's settings for now but I have a THX certified calibrator coming next month to properly calibrate the set. Motion on sports is fine for me with no ghosting either.

I played on gta for a few ours on the ps3 and that too was great! The on,y slight problem I have experienced is that when using the samsung remotes to change my cable tv channels, they sometimes lag a little and freeze. In addition the sound isn't that great but nothing a sound bar can't cure. 3d also looks incredible on this set!

Overall I'm very pleased so far but will keep you guys posted on any developments,

The stuttering is mostly noticeable on movies from either my HTPC or PC i have connected. I know its not the source as I output it to multiple monitors and its only noticeable on the samsung. It's passing through a Denon x4000. Again if i turn the automotion off it goes away. I still haven't played with the manual automotion settings to see when it goes away. Another user reported similar behavior. Other than that the automotion is nice and doesnt have any soap opera effect like older generation samsungs. Im on all recent firmwares.

I've noticed vertical banding a couple of times during football games (particularly during the fast camera pan on a punt). I think edge-lit LED is an inherently flawed design, but if you want a jumbo flat panel it's the only option at this point.

I'm slowly coming to terms with the flaws/limitations of this technology, and overall I'm happy with the TV. If they ever make an affordable 80" plasma, sign me up. Until then, I'll continue to enjoy this TV, warts and all.

Congrats and welcome! Not sure about the remote issue as I use a Harmony to control my box. Do you get the same issue using your cable box or other universal remote?

Hmm. Never used an htpc so am not at all versed in the ins and outs of those. I do know that they allow extreme flexibility with output resolutions and frame rate. I wonder - maybe the Samsung doesn't like the frame rate(s) you're throwing at it? Also, have you tried direct rather than through the x4000? I know you know it isn't the denon itself bc it works with various monitors. But I wonder if it's something about the combination of devices in this particular chain?

Hi all - was trying to work through all the pages of this thread to find some information for my TV - hoping someone might be able to help me out.

 

I have the UN50F6400 and want to know:

 

1.  Can I set the TV up with unblock-us?  If so - where can I find the instructions? I found a few threads on other sites through google, but none seemed to work.

 

2.  NAS streaming - anyone have one that works?  I was looking at one of the new Dlinks, but also saw a bunch of threads where others said they did not work with the Samsung TVs (something about the Samsung side).

 

Apologies if this has been covered before - was overwhelmed by all the information here.

 

TIA,

I am using a Zyxel NSA325 with the built in Twonky dlna server and also have Plex installed. The thing is the builtin dlna client works only with Twonky, it does not work with Plex, i need the Plex app installed for that. I am also streaming without problems from my PC where I am using Serviio

Installed some bias lighting behind my 75" and I really like it! I've started watching in the dark at get again as a result. Keeps the cinematic feel and improves perceived contrast while lessening the chance for eye strain (ironic that more light strains the eyes less in this case).

Motion Plus Issue.I recently purchased a Samsung UN40F6400 and the picture looks great but the problem is with the 'Motion Plus' on there is judder/Shuddering or like the 'Stop motion' that was used in the old movies like the original King Kong.
This seems to happen every 30-60 seconds.
I didn't notice when for the first couple of days I watched TV, but last night it was very noticeable.
It not that I really like the motion plus, it just that if it is a feature you should be able to use it.
I looked around on the net and haven't found a solution as of yet.
Has anyone here found a solution or at least found a way to reduce it so it is not as noticeable?
post #524 of 786
I just picked up the UN55F6400 last weekend and I have one question, so far. Is there any way to hide inputs that I know I'm not going to use? I have two HDMI inputs in use (AVR and Cable STB) as well as the component (Wii). I won't be using anything else, and since I have Twonky and Plex installed on my NAS, which is also a DLNA server as well, I have a lot of inputs that I'd like to either hide or have the TV skip them when switching back and forth. I have a 32" Bravia that allows me to do this, I was wondering if the Sammy has something similar.

I'm still getting used to the remote (wish it came with a basic one as well as the RF "smart" remote). I used the calibration settings posted earlier in the thread to adjust everything, picture looks better than the 46" LG that this set replaced. I was surprised at the quality of the 3D picture. It's not something that I was really shopping for, and I doubt I'll ever really use it, but I checked it out on the one 3D channel that Comcast broadcasts in my area and was pleasantly surprised.

Motion Plus has several settings, such as "clear" and "smooth", as well as turning it off. Mine's on clear and I never see the judder.

I have a Synology 213 and it works very well on the high high quality stuff sometimes the sound gets off a bit maybe a network issue. Wish this tv had gigabit....


Anyone know any settings that may help with vertical color banding... I'm on my third tv now and finally one with little little clouding but this last one has vertical banding which annoys me because the other two I had didn't.... Maybe will try Samsung but doubt they will replace it. I think my expectations are too high but some of them out ghee are flawless

Thanks, I'll give it a try.

I'm considering purchasing either the 46" or the 55" version of this TV, but I've come across a couple of reviews mentioning how motion interpolation is always forced on for 3D, and theres no way to turn it off. Is this true? How low can it be toned down? I watched the trailer on this page: http://www.theonering.net/torwp/2013/08/23/77519-compare-the-desolation-of-smaug-trailer-48-fps-v-24fps/ and I don't particularly like it. How bad will this effect be in 3D with motion interpolation turned to the lowest possible setting?

 

Thanks!

Hey everyone,

 

My 6400 arrived a few days ago and I just had a couple of questions. The picture quality was fantasic when watching movies through netflix. But when i turned on the football game i got some problems. For example, whenever the qb would throw the football it seem to "disappear" multiple times in mid air and sometimes even "freeze" when the receiver was about to catch the ball. I've tried the following settings to try to fix the problem: change the auto motion plus settings to clear,standard, and smooth. I even played around with the custom settings. None of these things solved the problem. Do you guys have any suggestions? Is it possible the tv is defective? Thanks in advance.

I had the exact same issues. Turning AMP off fixed it.

Guys, I'm looking at buying a UN75F6400. Mounting question that is relevant to my particular space: what is (roughly) the dimension from the bottom VESA mount screw holes to the bottom of the set? I can't find a set dimensions picture anywhere that calls out the overall dimensions to the VESA holes.

Thanks,
Don

Hello guys,

 

I'm super happy with my new 55F6400, the settings provided by BUZZ and alle the good suggestions here! My question is if someone can hook me up with some settings for sports?

 

keep up the good work:D

Hi dn325ci's,
did you find the dimension you are looking for? If not i can get it for you tomorrow

A quest question about the 3D glasses that come with the set.
The problem I have is the first time my wife and I checked out the 3D on the set, we spend about 25 minutes to see how well it worked.
We were surprise on how well the 3D works on this set.
When we sat down to watch a 3D show, the glasses wouldn't turn on.
They would just blink green-red over and over and kept pairing with the TV set.
I also noticed that the batterie in one set was low and the in the other it showed empty.
I know that I turned them off after we tried them.
How long are the batteries supposed to last in the 3D glasses that come with the set?

The battery on one of my pairs of glasses only lasted 5 hours or so. I'm hoping it was just a bad battery. If not, these "cheap" glasses will be quite expensive to use. My rechargeable Panasonic glasses, meanwhile, have lasted 15+ hours on a single charge.

No I didn't get the measurement. That would be terrific if you would do that emporio. Thanks!

It's 10.5 ". Hope this help
post #539 of 786
Yes, that helps. My space has a downward constraint but not an upward one. I have to go back and check my notes but I think I had 11" total down from the bottom VESA holes to play with, so it might work. Thanks!

My F6400 doensn't save the buzz settings, any suggestions? (I did apply Picture Source - Current Source) btw, the day/night settings in the service menu are greyed out at my tv.
