You can store different settings for Movie, Natural, Standard and Dynamic Mode.

Except Custom Color- its shared with all modes per HDMI input.

I usually adjust Film Mode or A.M.P. and leave the rest.

This sounds very promising.

Because I'm still a rookie with the device, could you break this down? I thought, for a unique HDMI input, I can only do one calibration. If I'm wrong, could you please let me know how/where I would do this?

Got it.. Thanks.. It was weird yesterday. Somhow I responded to the wrong question I was trying to answer. I really wanted to delete the entire post so now I know how. I really felt stupid like I had clicked on the wrong question to respond to but it happened again today. I was using my TV browser and clicked on Quote to answer your responce to my question above and I got a combination of 2 posts quotes, one being your responce. I canceled my return post and tried this on my PC and all was normal. I then went went back to the TV browser and this time when I clicked on Quote to respond to your post all was normal. I don't know whats up but it seems OK now. This is exactly what happened yesterday. I answered a post for the Stand/Wall mount sound question and somhow it posted but under the wrong original question. Thought my PC went nuts or even myself but noticed it again today. I just caught it before clicking on Submit this time. I have never seen this before & wondered if the web site was having some issues. Well at least now I know how to remove the responce if it gets out of context for some crazy reason. Oh yeah During the issue, when exiting the web browser, the TV locked up for a couple of seconds and then shut off. WTF Most likely, another TV firmware browser bug showing up occasionly and probably NOT the web site at all. Yeah Samsung! NOT.eek.gif

High contrast is the key to seeing less of it. The lower the contrast, the more obvious any banding/DSE will be. You can test for yourself by setting the contrast to 0 and viewing anything with vertical motion. Note that with all settings identical, Movie mode is lower contrast and shows off banding more than Standard.

This is why things can look crystal clear and then suddenly vertical motion in a low contrast scene is a dirty mess.
How do you know this? Had mine at 95. Gonna try 100.

Use the remote select Source and then Menu and get started:

Got a refund for my es8000 and picked up an f7000. Best decision ever

I didn't read the whole thread, but is the 7050 at Costco the same as the 7100 you see elsewhere?

Exactly the same except the 7050 comes with a free Bluetooth keyboard, it's about $40 cheaper, and every panel is a TD01 which may be a bad thing because I'm starting to think they all have the "pencil lines" defect.

Have you seen any 55F7100 that wasn't a TD01?

I had DirecTV. Hooked up a few days ago. The installer had know idea how to make what I have work in together easily. He ran an hdmi from the mini genie to the back of my sony NFC-hz970w reciever/bluray player I already had an hdmi running to the tv from the Sony. Now with it set up this way I have to have all three remotes and the smart hub does not let me control DirecTV with the Samsung remote. I'm guessing I will need to run the hdmi from the genie to the tv and an audio cable down from the tv. I'm hoping someone has some input on how to get this working. I'm hoping the rvu will work soon but I was told by the DirecTV rep it is only on the 2012 TVs at this point and will soon work with the 2013s. Anyway any help with getting my smart hub/remote to control DirecTV would be great thanks.

I also learned recently that when you delete a post that another member found helpful/ gave you the "thumbs up"-

It also deletes from your total Thumbs Up. Its trivial but I did notice this.

I had never had the TV lock- as I rarely use the Smart Hub features, but I did get a power cycle a while back due to the TV "overloading" on data from the online DirecTV channel guide.

I now just think about it like the F7100 is a computer masquerading as a HDTV and expect all the "normal" computer issues, glitches and problems.

That's good to hear, I was very interested in the ES8000 before I got the F7100.

I also have DirecTV. I have HDMI 1 connected to the DirecTV Set Top Box.

HDMI 2 connected to the Receiver/ Blu-ray.

HDMI 3 connected to the Xbox360.

I have optical cables connected directly from the DirecTV S.T.B. and Xbox360 to the Receiver.

You should go back to the remote set-up (in the Menu) after re-wiring your devices - the DirecTV should work.

You can also (possibly) program the Smart Touch remote to control other devices.

I've had two 55 inch sets with no pencil lines. My 46 has just one line on left side. Not noticeable until I'm right up to it with my face almost touching screen.

You've had 2 7050's or 7100's ? I'm thinking a lot of 7050's have pencil lines because I believe rurifan has had 3 with that issue, I have one right now, and the display I saw in Costco had it too.

All 55" 7050's have the same TD01 panel. With the 7100 I think there are something like 4 different possible panels you can have.

Sorry forgot to say 7100.

Well, we have decided that we're going to keep it, because it has a beautiful picture most of the time (and I think my wife's head started to explode at the idea of trying to determine what to replace it with).

That being said, one down side that we see to this TV is lack of analog inputs. One shared component/composite input will not handle our current devices. Does anyone have a suggestion for a good switch box that will allow us to connect a mixture of component and composite video devices? Preferably one that has been tested with this TV and is under 100 dollars?

Buying a tv these days is very frustrating. I bought a 65 inch 7100 today. The first thing I watched was golf and could immediately see pretty bad vertical banding. It is an AH01 panel made in May (these are Sharp manufactured, correct?). Now the hassle of packing it back up and deciding whether to get another one or wait.

I have the 65" AH01. I don't have any issues with banding only minor flashlighting in dark scenes. Hope you get a better set next time. I haven't heard of any 65" being anything other than AH01 panels...

That works on all HDMI inputs.

I've searched through the thread, but didn't see a consensus: Is it ok to transport these on their back, or do they need to be upright? I checked out the box, but couldn't really make sense of all the icons. It looked like it indicated it would be fine on its back, and had an giant arrow showing which side was the front, but wanted to check to see what you guys think.

The icons on the box indicate that it is not suppose to be transported lying down. All literature says it's not a good idea. You may get lucky, but then again you may not...

Have the AH01 65 from costco as well abd pretty satisfied....That said someone did respond to my previous post stating they exchanged a 65 inch AH panel for a T -Series(samsung) panel from Amazon .....So maybe costco gets only AH panels and other vendors get both? My guess is good as yours.....I am still within rturn window and if i return will post back if i get a different panel......

Ok so I am a little confused here on this discussion on panels, do they make a difference, I just checked mine and it is a TH02.
post #2249 of 5013
Samsung sources panels from sharp as well as making some themselves .Consensus is that samsung made panels sre marginally better (Usually Txxx) panels .Sharp panels arent bad but some have found them to have more issues than others .Again if ur panel looks good then it doesnt really matter !! Btw what size do u have and could u share where u bought .....looks like the 60 inch is sharp and most smaller (55/46) are sammys .65 inch ...mostly AH01) !! Hope this helps!!

Does Auto motion plus effect the tv's refresh rate? For instance with amp set to off is the tv still running at 240hz?
